A Defending Crusader…

The best defense is to be good and offensive…or something like that.

Stealth Jihad

Posted by Godefroi on July 29, 2008

isn’t the only thing we have to worry about…perhaps not even the most important thing (arguable), but without question not the most pressing.  The more immediate danger to the United States is Obama and his “stealth socialism”. 

Obama is not only the most left-leaning Senator (or at the very least in the top 3, depending on who’s counting), but with the potential for his winning the Presidency, he’s also the most dangerous one.  Why?  Enormous and expensive social programs.  Wealth redistribution.  Welfare-Nanny state.  The worst of the third world and the worst of the developed world meet in a frightening confluence in the speeches, writing, and apparent attitude/ideology of Obama.

IBD has published a commentary on this subject.  Excerpt below. 

Before friendly audiences, Barack Obama speaks passionately about something called “economic justice.” He uses the term obliquely, though, speaking in code — socialist code.

During his NAACP speech earlier this month, Sen. Obama repeated the term at least four times. “I’ve been working my entire adult life to help build an America where economic justice is being served,” he said at the group’s 99th annual convention in Cincinnati.

Democrat Barack Obama arrives in Washington on Monday. On the campaign trail, Obama has styled himself a centrist. But a look at those who’ve served as his advisers and mentors over the years shows a far more left-leaning tilt to his background — and to his politics.

And as president, “we’ll ensure that economic justice is served,” he asserted. “That’s what this election is about.” Obama never spelled out the meaning of the term, but he didn’t have to. His audience knew what he meant, judging from its thumping approval.

[…]

“Economic justice” simply means punishing the successful and redistributing their wealth by government fiat. It’s a euphemism for socialism.

[…]

Among his proposed “investments”:

• “Universal,” “guaranteed” health care. [read this by Theodore Dalrymple to get a flavor of what that can do to a populace]

• “Free” college tuition. [everyone knows that something not earned is something not valued…education is no different]

• “Universal national service” (a la Havana).

• “Universal 401(k)s” (in which the government would match contributions made by “low- and moderate-income families”).

• “Free” job training (even for criminals).

• “Wage insurance” (to supplement dislocated union workers’ old income levels).

• “Free” child care and “universal” preschool.  [Terrifying idea – that the government can mandate that the very young attend schools…what do you think they’ll be teaching these youngsters if not more Marxist love-for-state in order to prolong their regime?]

• More subsidized public housing.

• A fatter earned income tax credit for “working poor.”

• And even a Global Poverty Act that amounts to a Marshall Plan for the Third World, first and foremost Africa.  [In accordance with the doctrine of his church of 20 years – “We are an African people, and remain “true to our native land,” the mother continent.”  Here I thought we were all American people – silly me]

Obviously there’ only one way to pay for all this.  People can say all they want about the $10 Bln per month we spend on military efforts in Iraq – the $800 Bln he wants to give away to third-world countries in goodwill more than makes up for any savings from the premature capitulation he advocates in Iraq.

Thinking people need to do just that.  Actually, so do those folks who don’t care to think seriously when they can avoid it.  Everyone who loves this country, our freedoms, and our best-in-the-world standard of living must scrutinize this candidate and what he stands for….and vote accordingly.

Our Founders would be appalled that this big-government non-leader has come so far already.
