American Solutions General Chairman Newt Gingrich wrote an article in the Washington Post that has annoyed the Democrats, including President Obama.

In the
article, Gingrich repeats an earlier assertion that President Obama is "the most radical president in American history" and describes with several examples how the governing team of Obama-Pelosi-Reid operates as a "secular socialist machine."

Describing the Obama administration policies as "socialist" is more than President Obama and his defenders can stand. They seek to marginalize any serious discussion of whether President Obama is indeed attempting to impose socialist programs on the American society.

Consider President Obama's
remarks made at the University of Michigan:

The... way to keep our democracy healthy is to maintain a basic level of civility in our public debate.... Throwing around phrases like "socialist" and "Soviet-style takeover;" "fascist" and "right-wing nut" may grab headlines, but it also has the effect of comparing our government, or our political opponents, to authoritarian, and even murderous regimes.

... The problem is that this kind of vilification and over-the-top rhetoric closes the door to the possibility of compromise. It undermines democratic deliberation. It prevents learning - since after all, why should we listen to a "fascist" or "socialist" or "right-wing nut?" It makes it nearly impossible for people who have legitimate but bridgeable differences to sit down at the same table and hash things out. It robs us of a rational and serious debate that we need to have about the very real and very big challenges facing this nation.

The President would have us believe that using the term "socialist" undermines democratic deliberation and robs Americans of rational and serious debate about the challenges facing the country. 

People can learn a lot about socialism when you examine many of the Obama administration policies.

Here are a few examples:


  • The recently passed healthcare bill is a government takeover by regulation of approximately one-sixth of the economy. It will raise taxes by almost $1 trillion dollars over the next ten years and insurance premiums and associated healthcare costs will likely continue to go up each year. 

  • President Obama supports an economy wide cap and trade system, which he believes will strengthen job creation. Opponents believe that a cap and trade system will kill jobs and lead to government control of the entire U.S. economy, or, in other words, a socialist means of government control and of taxing and redistributing wealth to politically favored constituencies.

  • A free market economy is about rewarding companies that produce high quality products at a competitive cost and allowing them to fail when they are unable to deliver value at a price consumers are willing to pay.  A socialist approach is for the government to bail out companies with taxpayer dollars and then manage them, even though we already have an established bankruptcy process in this country for the orderly reorganization of failing companies.  President Obama chose the socialist approach when he bailed out General Motors and Chrysler. 

  • During the 2008 presidential campaign Barack Obama said "When you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody".  This world view is socialist in perspective, especially when you consider the spreader of the wealth is the federal government.  Well it's time to get ready for some more wealth being spread around because the Obama Administration is talking about introducing an entirely new form of taxation to the U.S.  It's called the Value -Added Tax (VAT), and it functions as a national sales tax on materials and goods at the production level, which will be passed along to the consumer in the form of higher prices on everything that is purchased.

These are a few of many examples in which President Obama's administration has or is trying to increase the size and power of the federal government in a manner that justifies the term socialist.



Progressive Government

William P. Frasca


What is wrong with this progressive government of sellouts? Our President, Barack Hussein Obama, The Chosen One”, who is the unquestionable supreme leader of his Administration, and the Liberal Marxist Democratic Party, of the United States Congress. Has a monopoly on being consistently nicknamed as bungling wimpy socialist idiots, with a multitude of ignominy characteristics. They find great enjoyment in degrading themselves and our glorious Country. This unbelievably boggles the mind on how they can achieve this so naturally. These individuals especially Obama must be so tired of having a self inflicted stiff neck by bowing submissively and regularly to every Tom, Dick and Harry third world dictator and irrational hostile leader, in addition to offering a mortifying disgusting apology. 


President Felipe Calderon of Mexico was invited to the United States , by Obama, and was basically given carte blanche in showing his contempt for America and the American people. He was allowed without any objections, to take every opportunity of his visit to criticize attack and humiliate America , especially the Great State of Arizona.  He was permitted to speak in front a joint session of Congress, bad mouthing Arizona for its newly adopted law of self protection. Portraying extreme arrogance, by claiming it will racially profile Mexicans. What gives him the right to come on our land, as a guest, and belittling any of our policies and laws, let alone one of our own States? Especially when his own Country of Mexico is far less compassionate and much more stringent on their own citizens and illegal aliens?


Those who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.


The United States of America is a Union and we should act and cover each others backs as a Union .


The true colors of the Liberal Marxist Democrats and their disgraceful traitorous attitude towards this Great Country are appalling. How can they humble themselves into a minuet position of docile hypnotic maggots, demeaning themselves in front of the whole world, by applauding for this foreign leader after he projected such scornful remarks? This should have developed an uncontrollable feeling of nausea to observe most our so-called elected Socialist Marxist Democratic leaders, including Attorney General Eric Holder and Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, who admitted not reading the Arizona Bill, standing up, cheering and clapping like mindless well rehearsed performing seals, waiting for their masters to give them scrapes of dead fish, at feeding time.


A good majority of our elected officials have the audacity of approving bills without reading them, maybe they can’t, because there’s no law stating an individual must read and write the English language to be elected to Congress or appointed to the President’s cabinet!


Some did symbolize American patriotism and pride, by displaying their disapproval, sitting quietly, expressing their anger and outrage. They should be praised and commended for their defiant actions.


These weak cowards mostly on the left, together with Obama, are a total terrible laughable joke, demonstrating a positive pathetic exhibition of habitual sadness. How can we as a free nation and people create these uncontrollable regressive abominations in our free election process? How could the majority be so easily fooled and swayed as to elect these disgraceful wolves in sheep’s clothing to positions of high prominence, that are able to ruin and destroy our God given liberties and freedoms.


There’s one good thing that happened with all this nonsense. At least our President, Barack Hussein Obama, “The Chosen One” doesn’t have to leave the Country to bow and apologize; he could do it just fine or even better, here, in his own back yard.


Felipe Calderon should be utterly embarrassed that most of his residents are climbing walls, cutting fences, walking through deserts, swimming rivers, at the risk of losing their lives, to leave his Country, just to have the opportunity, legal or not to live in America.


The illegal aliens in America are the most lucrative Gross National Product of Mexico, because they send back billions to their families, adding more capital to their deteriorating economy. America has been a very good and generous ally to his Country, yet he slaps the face of the hand that unselfishly feeds them.


Ever since this Administration took power, America has lost respect throughout the world. This foreign leader dictated, lectured, preached and condemned our self preservation. Yet he received a standing ovation from most of the Liberal Marxists Democrats in Congress, which compounds the disrespect and humiliation.


Why should he offer us any display of dignity? Especially when our own President, announces that he blames America first. He Projects his contempt for our Country, every where he travels throughout the world, labeling us as the root of all evil. If he doesn’t portray, any self worth and patriotism towards us, his Country, then why would anyone else, submit to us, any reverence or esteem. Thanks to our President, Barack Hussein Obama, “The Chosen One” we are now considered an international doormat.


He is the leader of the free world, and unfortunately our President. He should grow up and educate himself to the fact that America has enemies and they are just waiting, hoping, praying and contributing towards our destruction.


His babe in the woods mentality, of subservient gestures to the hostile anti-American nations and known violent terrorist groups and organizations, together with playing the fool with sub-par leaders of third world nations, will only escalate our decline into total oblivion.


Regrettably, this is a refection on us all. Hopefully the American electorate will not make the same mistake twice, by not approving or authorizing the re-elections of all these useless hypocritical degrading demigods, including our President, Barack Hussein Obama, “The Chosen One” on his next Presidential election. Remember fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.
