Obama's Socialistic Speech

I read Obama's speech of July 24th, 2008 in Berlin. It was impressive... it was massive... and it was full of issues to please as many people as possible while slipping in small things... small sentences that meant something more individually than the speech as a whole. It was like taking a poll wherein you're going along answering questions... and then... all of a sudden there's a question that doesn't have anything to do with the topic. The little red flag appears and you tear up the whole thing and toss it away... I don't have time for trickery.

His speech was impressive... but it was full of trickery.

[I know that I don't look like the Americans who've previously spoken in this great city. The journey that led me here is improbable. My mother was born in the heartland of America, but my father grew up herding goats in Kenya. His father -- my grandfather -- was a cook, a domestic servant to the British. ]

Why doesn't he look like other Americans who have spoken there before him? Because he uses the word "look", I can only assume he literally means he doesn't LOOK like others who have been there. So what is it about the way he looks that is so different? His height? His weight? His lack of piercings? His eyes... do his eyes somehow not look American? He has that little mole on his face... is that what he means? He wears a lot of suits... I don't wear suits... does that make him or me look less American? What about his teeth... have you seen his teeth... man they are the most pearly white teeth I've seen in a long time, unless you're talking about actors and models... is he an actor... hmmm.

Yes... he is an actor and he uses his stage to the best advantage he can. His latest stage was in Berlin where Ronald Reagan stood... and in a less threatening, less hostile environment. Ronald Reagan was a magnificent man who earned that label. Barrack Obama has not earned the right to be called magnificent. And it doesn't matter if you put a picture of Reagan and a picture of Obama side by side... they both LOOK American; the question is... how are their actions American... how are their words heard to be a true American. Obama uses words to make him seem more enlightened and more appealing to the American public (and for some odd reason he seems to think he needs that from the German people as well). Reagan used words to change a world... and did it! Obama tosses pretty, flowery words out and hopes something he says will change some one's mind to swing his way... hell, I felt his speech was impressive, remember. It was an ego stroker... insulting.

[This is the moment when we must build on the wealth that open markets have created, and share its benefits more equitably. Trade has been a cornerstone of our growth and global development. But we will not be able to sustain this growth if it favors the few, and not the many. Together, we must forge trade that truly rewards the work that creates wealth, with meaningful protections for our people and our planet. This is the moment for trade that is free and fair for all. ]

Can you say SOCIALISM? Obama wants us to create wealth as a whole and share it equally with everyone else so that everyone has the same amount of wealth (which can be broken down into money, homes, autos, electronics, clothing, etc.). And if Obama gets his way and everyone has the same amount of wealth (the amount would of course be dictated by the government) then you can bet he would make sure we only have those items deemed "appropriate" to own b the government. So... we would all have whatever automobiles the environmentalists want us to have... our houses would be the size deemed appropriate for the size of our families... and sooner or later (I mean... why not) we may be told what to wear.

[This is the moment when we must renew the goal of a world without nuclear weapons. The two superpowers that faced each other across the wall of this city came too close too often to destroying all we have built and all that we love. With that wall gone, we need not stand idly by and watch the further spread of the deadly atom. It is time to secure all loose nuclear materials; to stop the spread of nuclear weapons; and to reduce the arsenals from another era. This is the moment to begin the work of seeking the peace of a world without nuclear weapons.]
and
[...Sixty years after the airlift, we are called upon again. History has led us to a new crossroad, with new promise and new peril. When you, the German people, tore down that wall -- a wall that divided East and West; freedom and tyranny; fear and hope -- walls came tumbling down around the world.]

Hidden within the first paragraph of wanting to rid the world of nuclear weapons, is a moment when it seems that Obama is stating that America once tried to destroy Germany as a sideline to fighting the Soviet Union... as if we would have just allowed Germany to be destroyed in order to destroy the USSR.

In the second paragraph, he proclaims that the German people tore down the wall... neglecting to mention that a once magnificent man stood in Germany and demanded that the wall be torn down... and it indeed was torn down. Again... America had a great part in this and we did not just let our "suggested" desire for power or world dominance lead to Germany's destruction. America is a great country and being a super power is not an embarrassment nor is it a horrible, evil thing to be. We are the most giving country in the world... but if Obama and his side-kicks get control, he will lead us into a world of Socialism, where what is mine and what is yours is truly the government's in the guise of distributing equally to all Americans regardless of ambition.

And that... sadly, but truthfully... will lead us directly into Communism where there is nothing for the people and everything for the government. We will own nothing and have nothing to give... charity will be erased from the dictionary replaced with nothing but FORCED TOLLERANCE.

... and as an after thought... how "giving and charitable" are socialist and communist governments? Do other countries truly believe that America will be MORE giving to the world if we are NOT a democracy where individuals can send their own wealth, of any size, to other countries if they so CHOOSE. We will have nothing to give as "the people of America". We will be helpless, imprisoned and bitter... we will hoard everything we can get our hands on and we will hide in our homes and keep everything to our self, for fear of it being taken away.

Socialism and communism PRETENDS to care... democracies do.

May we each take the moment necessary out of this day and any day we feel the need to remember those who have gone before us in defense of our freedoms. Without them... we would not be "here"... we would be in chains. ~Bug~
