Top 7 Marxist Communist Policies Being Implemented By Obama Today


Throughout history Communist leaders have seized power by promoting themselves as populists, and often completely hiding their own ideology. Indeed in a poll taken after Communist Hugo Chavez' first election victory in Venezuela, only 3% of the electors believed Chavez to be a Socialist, let alone a Communist. Currently 32% of Americans believe Obama to be a Socialist.

The initial stages of Communization of a country invariably begin with seven basic steps:

Seizing Control Over The Free Flow Of The Nation's Money

Obama has stated that he wants to convert the stock the US government now owns in the nation's banks from preferred stock, which is the case currently, to common stock. This modification in type of stock may seem irrelevant at first glance, but under further analysis it is the single greatest communist policy the US government has ever adopted: It means that the federal government will control all of the currently publicly traded major banks and financial institutions in the nation which are currently in the hands of individual shareholders. Not only will the current shareholders' rights be trampled, but the control of the nation's flow of money is the first keystone of communism.

Stripping Capitalists Of Their Assets

According to US bankruptcy code, secured creditors such as the ones who have outstanding debt against Chrysler and GM, have to be paid before unsecured creditors. That is the law. Obama has ignored this law, and seized the vast majority (89% in GM's case) of all "asset value" of the automakers and taken direct control or given it away for free to the unions. Karl Marx's theses were all based on the workers owning the means of production, and thus communism takes hold in America.

Changing The Structures Of Government To Suit

Obama has given the GOP until October to approve his health care plan which many experts have shown, would be as socialized as Cuba's. If the Republican Party does not meet his demands, the Democratic Party will simply change the very rules of the United States Senate to pass their legislation through simple majority, instead of the 60% which has been required by the Senate through history. Changing legislation to suit the leader is another common tactic of communist leaders from Chavez to Castro.

Taking Advantage Of A Crisis To Impose Communism

Obama's Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel published a book entitled The Plan which would require (yes, require) young Americans regardless of their political stripe to serve in a direct copy of Hugo Chavez' red-beret local militias. The Plan also promotes massive taxpayer funded programs as universally free university tuition and health care as well as a tax reform to ensure that the middle and upper classes are crushed by the enormous new government expenditures. Obama has already admitted such a "soak anyone making over $250,000/year" punitive tax policy. Emanuel is famous for his quote "you never want a serious crisis to go to waste…(it’s) an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before," which is the prototypical process whereby communists seize power, witness Lenin, Mao, Castro, Tito, et al.

Controlling Higher Education

Obama has already launched legislation to remove private lenders from student loans which would now all be provided by the federal government directly, so that it could choose in a totalitarian manner who receives the loans and who doesn't. Many educational institutions are up in arms over this legislation as it essentially shifts admissions policy from the colleges and universities to the federal government. Control of higher education as in Obama's Pell Grant entitlement is a universal characteristic of communism to ensure that the young are properly ideologically indoctrinated.

Punishing Residential Property Owners

Obama's enormous mortgage bailout legislation is little more than a full blown entitlement program. The plan forces the 92 percent of responsible home owners to heavily subsidize the irresponsible "ARM-ATM" mortgage holders who didn't read their ARM mortgages and used their home equity like ATMs. These taxes would be so overwhelming that many of the "responsible" majority of mortgage holders could lose their homes. The punishment leading to the elimination of property owners in favor of the state is a fundamental tenet of Marxism, as Karl wrote "the middle-class owner of property: This person must indeed, be swept out of the way, and made impossible."

Demolishing The Economy To Replace It With State Control

Obama has:

  • Handicapped American multinationals by denying them tax deferral, placing them at an enormous competitive disadvantage against corporations based anywhere else.
  • Launched entitlement programs which punish innovation and dry up funds for entrepreneurial start ups.
  • Stopped the Treasury from implementing any real recovery plans, discouraging private capital flow into the financial sector.
  • Stated "we have to spread the wealth around, we have to redistribute the wealth of this country through taxation," which is a paraphrasing of Marx's "from each according to his ability, to each according to his need."
  • Declared a "War On Business" as shown by his legislation that pharmaceutical corporations pay high rebate fees to Medicaid and promoting the importation of foreign drugs which could include low potency or outright counterfeit drugs into the nation. The financial outlook for US pharmaceutical companies has been decimated.
  • Placed nearly two thirds of a trillion dollars into a health reform reserve fund, which is the tip of the iceberg in the expectations of the cost of fully socialized medicine in America. USA Today has stated that every household in the United States would be on the hook for over half a million dollars.

All of these policies represent time-honored Communist policies specifically designed to devastate the free market economy as well as impoverish and punish the upper and middle classes leading to their elimination so that the Communist "Dictatorship Of The Proletariat" can be introduced. It is important to note that in each and every historical instance Communism has been introduced into democratic countries and they were all swiftly changed to totalitarian dictatorships of a single leader benefiting from a "Cult Of Personality."

Policies virtually identical to these were implemented by:

Vladimir Ilyich Lenin in 1917 Russia
Josip Broz Tito in 1945 Yugoslavia
Mao Zedong (Tse-tung) in 1949 China
Fidel Castro in 1959 Cuba
Hugo Chavez in 1999 Venezuela

and now they are being implemented by

Barack Hussein Obama in 2009 United States of America.

That is why has called Obama a "Manchurian Candidate" set to destroy the US economy once elected.

I just came across this article through Pinterest searching for articles for the kid's school project and found it interesting that I had trouble pinning it. I have heard that can happen on facebook where certain political opinions are banned. Just wondering if that same thing is happening with Pinterest?

Sanxuary on February 08, 2015:

I see no proof of anything you claim to be true. I see the opposite where all wealth has been placed in the hands of a very few and this has destroyed the ability to practice capitalism. Increase wages and give some of that wealth to the people who made them all that money and you would see greater profits.

True Patriot on December 25, 2010:

It is amazing how many Zombies voted for this fraud and Jihadist. Hope and change for destruction of America.

All the Zombies and loosers lined up to vote for this complete fraud hoping to get some more goodies from the government.

No one will get anything but enslavement through oppression and Communism. It would be nice if only the idiots that voted for Obama got punished, as the rest of us do not deserve to be on this sinking ship of destruction.

O will go down as the biggest scam and fraud in the history of the world.

Rwolf on November 07, 2010:

Obama is in the process of destroying the U.S. Dollar, destroying its buying power for everyone, foreseeable to ultimately cause the deaths of Senior Citizens and others on fixed incomes once their small incomes are ravaged by inflation. As the Dollar buys less more Americans will become unemployed as consumers are forced to purchase less. Obama knows he won’t be reelected under such economic circumstances. Historically leftists to achieve their agenda have moved on democracies when they are in civil unrest and economic chaos. If Obama is allowed to destroy the Dollar, Obama and his socialists/Marxists constituents appear ready to “change the face of America”, having built a "Fifth Column" of extreme leftists" in labor, pro-illegal immigration and other groups, supported by socialists and communists that appear intended to destroy America if the opportunity presents itself.

In the run up to Hitler and the Nazis taking power, the former German government disparate to pay its bills, relentlessly printed Reich Marks. Soon inflation put more Germans out of work and those working could not spend their paycheck fast enough, including 12000 Reich Marks for a loaf of bread. Germans were ready to accept any government that would provide jobs, even Hitler’s fascist government. If Obama and his Leftists destroy free enterprise, that will destroy most jobs in America, it is foreseeable millions of Americans might endorse and accept a socialist/communist form of government to feed their families. Americans should consider how Obama’s leftists might deal with millions of unemployed Americans that believe in Free Enterprise and Senior Citizens that have to be fed and housed should leftists take power. Historically communists have not treated well their “Non-Critical Citizens.”

The 10 planks of the Communist Manifesto follow. All 10 have been substantially implemented for a considerable length of time, and neither Democrat nor Republican will oppose them except in minor details. How many politicians, for example, advocate a complete abolition of government involvement in education - state, local and federal? (that would be item #10) How many call for the abolition of the Federal Reserve System? (item #5)

1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes. 2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax. 3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.

4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels. 5. Centralisation of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly. 6. Centralisation of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the State. 7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State; the bringing into cultivation of waste-lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan. 8. Equal liability of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture. 9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of all the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the

populace over the country. 10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children’s factory labour in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, &c, &c.

I don't understand why conservatives are called "the right" when they all seem to be so wrong. I made the mistake of voting for Reagan, then Shrub senior and I will never make the mistake of voting for a Republican again. They get into office, create a mess the entire time they are there and then blame it on everyone else. I have never seen a group of people that are so hell-bent on NOT accepting responsibility for their own actions like the people of the Republican Party. I simply do not understand how the Republicans can look at the eight years that junior was in office and think that we, as a country, had a leader that cared about the American people. Bush and Cheney were only interested in one thing; pushing their agenda forward-an agenda that benefited very few, mostly wealty people, and absolutley screwed the remainder of this country. Bush and Cheney should both have been put on trial for treason for the illegal acts THEY committed while they were in office. The fact here is that what you state in this farce of of hub is conjecture and pure opinion while the illegal acts committed by the previous adminstration have been well documented. The biggest problem I have with Obama is that he failed to investigate and prosecute the previous administration for committing illegal acts against this country. Finally, you don't see people on the left picking up arms and going into the woods training for the day when martial law goes into effect when there is a Republican president in office. That is because we are the sane group of people in this country who choose to think on their own rather than be led around like sheep listening to idiots like Beck, Limpbaugh and Hannity. I choose to think on my own and I think anyone with a brain in their head would choose to do the same.

pukerup on June 22, 2010:

It amazes me how every time a new president takes office how people talk irrationally about how we will be taken back to the dark ages and the country will be run by the military and we will be put into concentration camps and 90% of us will be eliminated or the economy is going to collapse and we will have another great depression because there will be no jobs or how the gov't is trying to centralize the banking system so the rich and powerful can control the flow of money. But you know what? I've seen presidents come and go and guess what; the sky didn't fall, we're not dead or dying and we don't live in a communist society. Get a grip and get a life. The only reason people post this crap is to cause fear and to use it to control the people who are scared. Think for yourself and spend more time worrying about your own life and your family and you will be just fine. There isn't a day that goes by that I worry about any of the nonsense talked about on this post and I never will because it's never going to happen.

Ross Wolf on June 07, 2010:

America’s greatest threat is not from foreign enemies, but from Marxists that have slithered into U.S. Government.

Historically, when Socialists like Obama have been elected to government, they thrive like cancer—targeting healthy economic markets and individuals with new and higher taxes to pay for public welfare programs. Obama is a red diaper baby that inherently does not represent Americans, but a Marxist ideology—that mandates forcing socialism on U.S. Citizens—even if that means destroying the U.S. economy in addition to abolition of the Constitution. Obama’s has already forced unaffordable health insurance, new taxes and regulatory costs on businesses that will inhibit investment and hiring of new employees for years.

What might happen politically in America if the Obama government suddenly stopped extending unemployment and other assistance paid millions of Americans: In foreign countries where the economy and government went broke, millions of unemployed and others dependent on government handouts responded, by voting socialists into power, worsening the economy. If Obama spends America into bankruptcy, it is foreseeable millions of disparate Americans might accept, even welcome a hybrid form of Marxist/socialism.

Ross Wolf on June 07, 2010:

Could Obama Be America’s First Defacto President?

Innocent Americans increasingly are sent to prison based on false evidence manufactured by police forensic crime labs. Now President Obama wants the power to incarcerate U.S. Citizens not on evidence, but for what they might do.

Compare: Two days after the 1933 burning of Germany’s Parliament Building, blamed on communists, Hitler responded with a powerful speech before Parliament. Hitler asked Parliament to suspend sections of the Reich Constitution that protected Citizens' Rights and Civil Liberties. Hitler said the suspension was necessary so government could protect the homeland from being destroyed by communists. Hitler promised Parliament the Constitution would later be restored. After Parliament passed Hitler’s Discriminatory Decrees and Hitler signed it February 28, 1933, Hitler immediately used the news laws to abolished Parliament. See Hitler’s 1933 Discriminatory Laws below:

Obama gave a speech in May 2010, that proposed incarcerating in indefinite prolonged detention without evidence, any person government deemed a “combatant” or likely to engage in a violent act in the future; that would include U.S. Citizens “without evidence of wrongdoing.” With that amount power Obama could like Hitler arrest members of Congress, drag U.S. Citizens off the street and from their homes to be imprisoned indefinitely based only on Government’s claim they are a “combatant” or likely to engage in a violent act in the future.

If Congress approves Obama’s categories of people likely to engage in violent acts, overnight millions of lawful U.S. activists could be subject to Indefinite Prolonged Detention. When you examine Obama’s speech, it appears Obama wants retroactive power to incarcerate anyone government claims (prior) supported violent acts on the premise, that person is likely to engage in violent acts in the future: U.S. activists would be vulnerable because no activist can control what other activists or groups might do illegally they network with domestically or overseas. Government would only have to claim a person; group or organization might commit a violent act in the future to order Preventative Detention of lawful participants with no evidence whatsoever. Americans would be afraid to speak out.

It is foreseeable any “individual” who writes on the Internet or verbally express an opinion against or entity of U.S. Government or its coalition partners could be deemed a “Combatant” or likely to engage in or cause violent acts: government too easily could claim an author’s writings inspired people in the past and will in the future to commit violent acts. It is problematic that indefinitely detained U.S. Citizens not involved in terrorism or hostile activities, not given Miranda Warnings or allowed legal counsel; interrogated, will be prosecuted for ordinary crimes because of their alleged admissions while held in indefinite “Prolonged Detention.”

Obama wants the power to override the U.S. Constitution. Obama wants the power to detain indefinitely without probable cause or evidence, any U.S. Citizen based on conjecture someone might do something violent in the future.

Obama similar to Hitler is centralizing power in the federal Government by getting passed legislation that U.S. government potentially could use to intimidate and threaten businesses and corporations among others. Hitler got similar laws passed shortly before the burning of the German Parliament building blamed on the communists. Immediately after the fire, Hitler used his new laws to coerce corporations and others to support passage of fascist legislation that suspended provisions of the German Constitution that protected Citizens’ freedoms and civil liberties. Obama is now approaching a position where he can use similar new laws, including the Patriot Act and 200 asset forfeiture laws to seize any corporation or individual’s assets, force corporations and other institutions to support legislation that threatens or curtails the rights of Americans. This President not only intends to void the U.S. Constitution he is numb to the Majority Will of the American People.


Note: Based on translations by State Department, National Socialism, 1942 PP. 215-17, and Pollak, J.K., and Heneman, H.J., The Hitler Decrees, (1934), pp. 10-11.7

In virtue of Section 48 (2) of the German Constitution, the following is decreed as a defensive measure against Communist acts of Violence, endangering the state:

Section 1

Sections 114, 115, 117, 118, 123, 124, and 153 of the Constitution of the German Reich are suspended until further notice. Thus, restrictions on personal liberty, on the right of free expression of opinion, including freedom of the press, on the right of assembly and the right of association, and violations of the privacy of postal, telegraphic, and telephonic communications, and warrants for house-searches, orders for confiscations as well as restrictions on property, are also permissible beyond the legal limits otherwise prescribed.

Section 2

If in a state the measures necessary for the restoration of public security and order are not taken, the Reich Government may temporarily take over the powers of the highest state authority.

Section 4

Whoever provokes, or appeals for or incites to the disobedience of the orders given out by the supreme state authorities or the authorities subject to then for the execution of this decree, or the orders given by the Reich Government according to Section 2, is punishable—insofar as the deed, is not covered by the decree with more severe punishment and with imprisonment of not less that one month, or with a fine from 150 up to 15,000 Reichsmarks.

Whoever endangers human life by violating Section 1, is to be punished by sentence to a penitentiary, under mitigating circumstances with imprisonment of not less than six months and, when violation causes the death of a person, with death, under mitigating circumstances with a penitentiary sentence of not less that two years. In addition the sentence my include confiscation of property.

Whoever provokes an inciter to or act contrary to public welfare is to be punished with a penitentiary sentence, under mitigating circumstances, with imprisonment of not less than three months.

Section 5

The crimes which under the Criminal Code are punishable with penitentiary for life are to be punished with death: i.e., in Sections 81 (high treason), 229 (poisoning), 306 (arson), 311 (explosion), 312 (floods), 315, paragraph 2 (damage to railroad properties, 324 (general poisoning).

Insofar as a more severe punishment has not been previously provided for, the following are punishable with death or with life imprisonment or with imprisonment not to exceed 15 years:

1. Anyone who undertakes to kill the Reich President or a member or a commissioner of the Reich Government or of a state government, or provokes to such a killing, or agrees to commit it, or accepts such an offer, or conspires with another for such a murder;

2. Anyone who under Section 115 (2) of the Criminal Code (serious rioting) or of Section 125 (2) of the Criminal Code (serious disturbance of the peace) commits the act with arms or cooperates consciously and intentionally with an armed person;

3. Anyone who commits a kidnapping under Section 239 of the Criminal with the intention of making use of the kidnapped person as a hostage in the political struggle.

Section 6

This decree enters in force on the day of its promulgation.

Reich President

Reich Chancellor

Reich Minister of the Interior

Reich Minister of Justice

Hal, you remind me of my uncle. He believes ommiting people with pre existing conditions is okay cuz its "bad for business". He also believs a fence will stop illegals from entering our country. But most of all he likes to "stir the pot". The more he gets under your skin the happier he gets.

I enjoy my debates with him, so to you I will only say your very entertaining to read. I enjoyed the comments as much as the article.

Right on, Hal. Obama is NOT a moderate democrat -- or moderate anything else. I've never in my life, through wars and all the ups and downs of many years, feared for my country. For the first time, I am afraid of what's to come. I can pinpoint when that fear started -- with the election of this president. If I'm one of the ignorant -- so be it but common sense is common sense! Great Hub. Best, Sis

He has a habit of showing up in my hubs and ruffling some feathers. Great job defending yourself, you do have a set!

Hal Licino (author) from Toronto on November 15, 2009:

bob, I have never advocated anything but legal, ethical, and constitutional avenues for the American people to remove Mr. Obama from office. But the bottom line is that HE MUST GO NOW before it is too late. Right now, it's ANYONE BUT BARRY!

bob on November 15, 2009:

I still don't see why Obamaites only think of Bush when they encounter opposition. It's not black and white, folks. Pretty much every president in the last century has expanded government and infringed upon freedoms little by little, using the Depression, world wars, and communism as pretexts. It wasn't until ol' Barry came into office that those in power finally made a significant push to complete the transformation. There's still time for us to reverse it through peaceful means, but this will require people like nonbeliever to see the truth.

My god! Have any of you even READ Marx? This is disgusting.

Obama? A communist? I heard he was a socialist! What's next?

Maybe you should talk to your old friend Bush and his corporatist, capitalist administration on how they hollowed out the US government- thus creating our "hollow" government of today.

The reason why 32% of AMERICANS believe Obama to be a socialist is because THEY ARE IGNORANT! I would love to hear the definition out of their mouths and yet all the come up with is the USSR and Germany. Don't make me laugh! PATHETIC!

This post sir- a disgrace. You look like an idiot.

Harvey Stelman from Illinois on September 29, 2009:


I write about Obama all the time, your article is superior to anything I've written.

Anyone saying Obama has received the harshest treatment has a very distorted memory. The media (except FOX) was always against Bush, that was quite evident.

MikeNV from Henderson, NV on September 08, 2009:

While I don't agree with many of your assertions I do believe Obama has his own agenda that has nothing to do with the middle class. The stock assertion with banks is not going to happen. If you understand how the Private Bank (i.e. Federal Reserve) works you should know that the privately held banks are already secretly owned. The Government doesn't need to convert shares of stock to have any influence. It is IMPOSSIBLE to find out who owns what because the owners are protected by Corporate Law. This is not so much about what Obama is doing to shift to socialism, it's about money and World Government. The middle class is already a slave class to the credit markets.

SEO Expert Kerala from KERALA on September 08, 2009:

Americans learned the importance of Marxist Policies ,after the recession .Indian Banks are following these policies so they become a role model to the american banks in these days

Kristie on September 07, 2009:

Excellent information! Hopefully others will read your article and think seriously about where our country is really headed!

Ralph Deeds from Birmingham, Michigan on September 07, 2009:

Sorry, it is an ad hominem looney lie. He is a moderate Democrat, but in your looney tunes lexicon that makes him a hard core Marxist. The fact is that he has alienated his base in the liberal wing of the Democratic policy by his tendency to suck up to the GOP and the likes of the great Christian homophobe, Rick Warren.

Hal Licino (author) from Toronto on September 07, 2009:

There have been no ad hominem attacks at all against Mr. Obama. They can only be referred to as ad hominem if I attack the person and not the policies. Mr. Obama is a communist. That is not an ad hominem statement, it is a statement of fact, just like saying that he is a homo sapiens. I have written a series of Hubs showing the clear, unobfuscated, completely irrefutable evidence proving that Mr. Obama is a communist. I have also gone on record as stating that I'd love to know the man and buy him a beer. I admire Mr. Obama for his intellect, tenacity, skills, oratory, and shrewdness. I completely disagree with his ideology, but when I lived in Iron Curtain nations, I had to learn to understand communism, the myth of "universal equality" at its core, and the hold it seems to still have on some people. I believe that as an American, Mr. Obama is entitled to his First Amendment rights. He is and should be free just like you are to express any opinion, no matter how asinine. The problem occurs when he utilized Marxist election misdirection to pass himself off as a populist only to reveal his true nature right after election in echoes of Caracas 1999. He is now in the most powerful office in the world and he needs to be impeached out of it immediately. He should be free to, with great respect to his talents and achievements, pursue any other career avenue... as long as it does not destroy the United States Of America.

Ralph Deeds from Birmingham, Michigan on September 07, 2009:

I was referring to your ugly, ridiculous, ad hominem attacks on President Obama.

Hal Licino (author) from Toronto on September 07, 2009:

Ralph, I NEVER attack unless attacked first. Period. Then I give as good or better than I get. We can let this debate descend into kindergarten recess accusations or return to the single most important issue facing America today: Please defend your viewpoint that Mr. Obama is not an anti-American communist who is proceeding to dismantle the greatest nation on Earth. Thank you.

Ralph Deeds from Birmingham, Michigan on September 07, 2009:

Hal, look in a mirror. You specialize in ad hominem attacks which would be vicious if they weren't so looney.

Hal Licino (author) from Toronto on September 07, 2009:

I repeat that Obama has implemented every single tactic of conventional modern Marxism in gaining power by stealth without once letting on his true ideology until he got into power. A page out of the Chavez handbook. And I will never use the N word to describe Mr. Obama or anyone else.

Snow Patrol on September 07, 2009:

And Ralph Deeds, just in case anyone else hasn't noticed, President Obama is also a (word used by black people in Rap music to describe black people).

It's a very sad point that whilst the rest of the world, including Europe, the Arab Nations, South America and Canada, thought America had moved into the light, Hal confirms that at least some people,have stepped further into the darkness.

Obama is NO communist. If you think he is, go ask people who grew up inside the Soviet Union. You think you've got it so bad under Obama? Nada.

Hal Licino (author) from Toronto on September 07, 2009:

Referring to you or to Mr. Obama? First of all, I have the utmost respect for any commentor of any stripe on my Hubs as long as they don't degrade down to ad hominem attacks. So I would not call you any of those names. I believe you're foolish in not recognizing the overwhelming weight of evidence which clearly proves that Mr. Obama is a communist in every bone of his Marxist body. Secondly, I have gone on record as stating that I like Mr. Obama AS A PERSON, and think he would be an excellent bureaucrat or talk show host... ANYTHING but President! :)

Ralph Deeds from Birmingham, Michigan on September 07, 2009:

Hal, here are a few names you left out--homo, child molester, masturbater, sadist and pig

Hal Licino (author) from Toronto on September 07, 2009:

An American can barely apply for a middle management public clerk position without an FBI background check, but Obama's buddy just cruised through... of course because he could pass an FBI check about as well as Bin Laden... :(

jon ewall on September 07, 2009:

Van Jones (CZAR ) resigned over the weekend.He did not get an FBI backround check, congress and the taxpayers should wonder why ????

Hal Licino (author) from Toronto on September 07, 2009:

Hi guys! You've been having a nice shindig here while I was taking my Labor Day break... yes, Ralph Deeds et al., even an avowed rightwinger such as Hal does engage in holidays of the proletariat, so if you want to take away my Il Duce Ha Sempre Ragione lapel pin for having a BBQ on this day, so be it. :)

Way too much has been stated for me to counter or congratulate, so if I've missed your comment to thrash or evangelize, please forgive me.

lostgirlscat: Jones is now gone and not a moment too soon. Please check


Ralph Deeds: Actually I do have bite marks on my buttocks from a Communist, although you might be excused for not being able to make them out amidst the cellulite. I can't speak for my friend maven101, but it I have read Mr. Obama's books, and various quotes stood out:

"I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students, the foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets."

However, not just on Marxism, but also racism:

"I ceased to advertise my mother's race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites."

"It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names."

Obama also blamed "white people – some cruel, some ignorant, sometimes a single face, sometimes just a faceless image of a system claiming power over our lives."

And you actually have the unmitigated gall to DEFEND this man's right to be the leader of your nation? Shame on YOU, Ralph! Take off your hat in your next profile photo so we can see the hole clear through your head. :)

barranca: Obama is leading the USA into fascism as much as the MDA Telethon is leading the addled Jerry Lewis into an Emmy. Do me a favor and check the definition of your terms before posting, willya?

Will Apse: As a card carrying member of the Canadian Society To Eliminate Commie Red From Our Flag & RCMP Uniforms, I wholeheartedly support your concern about the Mounties. :) I also briefly address a comparison of the Canadian health system (of which I am a vocal opponent) and Obama's medical Red-icare system in that Hub I've just posted.

Misha: It's a typical reaction of all Reds when their lies start catching up to them and the people start to rise against them. Their deranged ideology has brainwashed them into thinking that they can pull off massive nationalizations devastating the middle and upper classes through tax burdens they can never pay off and for a while the apathy of the citizenry allows them to do just that. But sooner or later, their chimeras crumble into the red muck of illogic from where they first arose, and then they have to go on the attack in an EPIC PHAIL attempt to justify their misdeeds... or red deeds as you prefer! :)

catwoman89: When I first began this series of Hubs about Obama's Marxism almost half a year ago, many comments were similar to yours, Ralph's, etc. All I can say now is that you can open any newspaper, news site, or tv news program and see how Americans everywhere are starting to wake up to the clear and present danger that a Marxist in the White (soon to be Red) House poses. Your semantic obfuscation aside, apply the logic you boast, and you will realize like many others the reality of this Marxist nightmare American voters have created.

Larry Conners from Northern Arizona on September 06, 2009:

catwoman.. critical thinking takes too much effort for some folks...they would much rather attack the messenger than refute the merits of the message...

It's still a lot of fun if you don't take yourself too serious... Larry

catwoman89 on September 06, 2009:

The truth is, one can prematurely slant the interpretation of ANY document or set of decisions or intentions in any direction he/she wishes, and in order to refute that slant, an individual MUST seek each ORIGINAL document/direct quote etc. in order to CONFIRM FOR HIM/HERSELF what it actually does or does not state.

All other options are illogical. & all of us must beware of logic errors such as CIRCULAR REASONING (i.e. "a Marxist is a Marxist)...

Overgeneralization is another very dangerous logic error (i.e. "the Republicans all think this," "the Democrats are ALL idiots, etc." VERY VERY DANGEROUS AND DIVISIVE.

I vote for LOGIC in place of mud slinging and seeds of MASS HYSTERIA.

Ralph Deeds from Birmingham, Michigan on September 06, 2009:

Misha, my comment was addressed more to Larry. You just got caught in the crossfire.

Today's Doonesbury strip says it all.

Misha from DC Area on September 06, 2009:

Ralph, you mixed me with somebody else. i never said Obama is idiot or something like this, and I never said any kind of that crap about Bush, too.

However, I do disapprove of what both of them did...

Ralph Deeds from Birmingham, Michigan on September 06, 2009:

There is no Obama health care bill. But stay tuned. As you have no doubt read, Obama has taken a different tack from Clinton's approach of drafting a bill and presenting it to Congress. But Obama's hopes of a sincere, cooperative bipartisan effort to draft a bill have not materialized. He is expected to be more specific in his address on health reform this week.

I wasn't aware of Ayer's help on Obama's book if in fact that is actually the case. Obama's contribution as editor of the Harvard Law Review, let alone his intelligence,can't be measured by signed articles any more those of the editor of any publication. No president in recent history has been subjected to the mudslinging as has Obama. I can't help but conclude that much of it if not most of it is racially motivated. Bush got plenty of criticism but only after his sorry record became apparent. The right wingnuts started in on Obama before he was inaugurated.

Larry Conners from Northern Arizona on September 06, 2009:

Will Aspe has written:

" Once you get the point that definitions of common words are not being respected, all debate becomes pointless because there is no possibility that anyone will understand what the other person is saying."

That pretty much encapsulates the problem with the Obama health care bill...No one seems to know what the hell is in it, how its going to dovetail with our present system(s), or how it will affect seniors clinging to Medicare...All we have gotten from Obama is obfuscation, confusion, and ill-defined objectives...

Will Apse on September 06, 2009:

The points in my comments are rarely political, Misha. I don't have much ideology clinging to me. I do like facts though.

When Hal says things like 'many experts have shown,[Obama's health care plan} would be as socialized as Cuba's'any one with a respect for intelligent debate has to speak up.

Who are these experts, what does 'socialized' mean in this context? I mean a well socialized chimp is one that gets on with other chimps. Is Obama's health care plan going to get on well with other health care plans?

Also the obvious point is that every western nation bar the US has a national health care system including Canada where Hal lives. Does this mean that the whole western world is Communist? If it is, we need to change the definition of Communist to something like the definition that we presently use for social democratic, or left of centre, or left leaning.

Once you get to the point that definitions of common words are not being respected, all debate becomes pointless because there is no possibility that anyone will understand what the other person is saying.

Larry Conners from Northern Arizona on September 06, 2009:

Ralph...Ayers famous kitchen table has hosted several writers, including Obama...When Obama came to Ayers in 1993 and plopped his sprawling, messy, and sophomoric manuscript on the table, he said " Help "... Ayers had the time, having just published his book " To Teach ", and had no further literary commitments until 1996...when reading " Dreams " many of the post-modern themes and phrases that appeared in Ayers' essay on memoir writing surface throughout...Re the HLR, Obama had not submitted a single signed word, note, essay, or commentary during his entire tenure as president of HLR...I challenge you to point me to one such...You shout, pontificate, and accuse with great passion and emotion, signifying nothing of intellectual content..I'm getting rather bored with such blind, biased, and uninformed blathering...Larry

Ralph Deeds from Birmingham, Michigan on September 06, 2009:

Misha and Larry, just out of curiosity, how do you think Obama compares with George W. Bush in the gray matter department? I don't recall either of you pointing to the fact that Bush was a mediocre student playboy with a drinking problem who rode into Yale on his family's coat tails.

Misha from DC Area on September 06, 2009:

For red deeds, definitely ;)

Ralph Deeds from Birmingham, Michigan on September 06, 2009:

Misha, you are impossible. Do you check for Reds under your bed every night?

Misha from DC Area on September 06, 2009:

Interesting Hal, I see our resident socialists/communists are becoming much more active lately in defending their tzar. Are they trying to outshout their own doubts in his success? ;)

Ralph Deeds from Birmingham, Michigan on September 06, 2009:

Larry, your're offering more mudslinging disguised as fact. "Dreams" was probably co-written by Ayers." What do you base that guilt by association speculation on? And where did you get your information that Obama "in fact," made zero contributions to the Harvard Law Review? You wouldn't know a fact if it bit you in the a--! You're accusing me of bias? That's a good one.

Larry Conners from Northern Arizona on September 06, 2009:

Ralph...I wouldn't consider disparaging Obama's media hyped intelligence " mudslinging "...simply an opinion arrived at through reading his books and several mediocre essays...In particular " Dreams " which was probably co-written by Wm. Ayers...Obama forfeited his cash advance for the original book deal because he was unable to produce a draft after a whole year of contemplation, including a lengthy stay in Bali...Being elected Editor at the HLR is more of a popularity contest than literary competence...In fact, he made zero contributions to that esteemed post...Have you ever read any of his halting poetry from his stint at Occidental College..? Childish claptrap...

Before making accusations of " mudslinging " and prejudging my reading habits you might want to check your bias at the front door...Larry

Will Apse on September 05, 2009:

I doubt if there is a Marxist within a hundred miles of Hal so I think his a** is safe, Ralph. Some of those mounties worry me though. That outfit- I mean all that red...

barranca on September 05, 2009:

Amen Ralph. These lunatics are inciting to violence based upon the most ridiculous, warped political understandings on the planet. Americans IN GENERAL are the most politically ignorant, deluded people in the world. What will destroy America is corporate greed buying politicians and military-industrial complexes turning us into an arms merchant to the world and an empire sinking into fascism.

Ralph Deeds from Birmingham, Michigan on September 05, 2009:

Larry, I respect your views on some things, but I wonder how do you come to this far-out conclusion? You're the first person I've heard dispute that Obama is highly intelligent. Harvard Law School is one of the top law schools in the country. It doesn't accept dummies, and Obama was elected Editor of the school's law review which is a high achievement. Many Supreme Court justices can't match his intellectual credentials. Have you taken the time to read either of his short books? Apparently not. Disagreeing with Obama's policies on principle or because you think they are impractical or unworkable is one thing. Mudslinging is another. Shame on you!

Larry Conners from Northern Arizona on September 05, 2009:

Ralph..I agree..I don't think Obama is a Marxist...I don't think he's intelligent enough to really know what a Marxist is...Further, if anything, I believe Obama is a useful idiot, in the Lenin definition, and even has sophisticated liberals like yourself fooled...Larry

Ralph Deeds from Birmingham, Michigan on September 05, 2009:

Good point Will Apse. Obama isn't even a very liberal Democrat. Hal wouldn't know a Marxist if one bit him in the a--!

lostgirlscat on September 05, 2009:

Bravo!!And while you don't need any more back-up for your article to prove your point, just take a look at the background of some of the "Czars" he's appointed to his adminisistration. Avowed communist "Green Jobs Czar" Van Jones in particular.

Hal Licino (author) from Toronto on September 03, 2009:

I have my definitions very clear:

Marxism is Marxism. Obama is a Marxist. That's the definition.

See? No confusion here! :)

Will Apse on September 03, 2009:

I sought of think I should reply to this but you are so out there I wouldn't know how to begin.

One thing I have to say- words have meanings. Marxism is Marxism. Capitalism is Capitalism. Republicans are Republicans. Liberals are Liberals. Its good to bear in mind the meaning of words or you look very foolish.

Hal Licino (author) from Toronto on September 02, 2009:

Barack Hussein Obama is a Marxist Communist. The evidence in my linked Hubs on the subject presents more than enough evidence. It is an open and shut case. Anyone is welcome to counter this firm evidence, and so far no one has presented any factual information to support any conclusion but mine. Like all good modern Marxists, Obama has seized power through the back door by not revealing the extent of his Communist ideology until he has taken office.

Ralph Deeds from Birmingham, Michigan on September 02, 2009:

What do yu expect when you call the President a communist? You put yourself in with the looney tunes fringe extremists.

Hal Licino (author) from Toronto on September 02, 2009:

My dear friend, thank you for your comment. I have been absolutely amazed at how many vehement reactions this series of Hubs received when I started posting them almost half a year ago, and how a huge chunk of public opinion has since swayed to "my" side. Let's just hope that there are historians around in 2100, and we're not all living in swamps trying to catch frogs for dinner! :)

Larry Conners from Northern Arizona on September 02, 2009:

Lets see...How to cook frogs..? I guess you would put them in a pot of cool water, and slowly, very slowly, turn up the heat to keep them from jumping out..then, before they know it, they are cooking in boiling water...I jumped out a long time ago when it became clear this was an election of personality, not policy...

You were right on then, and you are most def right on now...This Hub, and comments, needs to be carved in stone, placed in a time capsule, and read by historians in 2100...Larry

Hal Licino (author) from Toronto on September 02, 2009:

Medicare does not indebt every man woman and child in America to the tune of half a million dollars in tax burden which cannot be paid off without bankrupting the entire nation. Obama's health plan is communism of a shade that not even Chavez would dare introduce, and therefore is more than ample grounds for immediate impeachment for the sake of the country.

Ralph Deeds from Birmingham, Michigan on September 02, 2009:

How about Medicare? Is that a Marxist nightmare? I've been covered for longer than I wish and it works great. However, they need to work harder at controlling costs caused by a number of factors such as spreading "for profit" medicine which leads to unnecessary tests and procedures, the Bush give-away to the pharmaceutical companies, the parasitical health care insurance companies and medical malpractice judgments and insurance costs. I notice you live in Toronto. Why don't you tell us about health care in Canada? Is Canada a marxist state too?

Hal Licino (author) from Toronto on September 02, 2009:

Yeah, I generally try to keep my Hubs family friendly so the s word gets a couple of asterisks stuck in the middle. Anyway, the bottom line is this.

Obama is a Commie.

He is destroying America.

His health plan is a Marxist nightmare.


Anyone who disagrees with this is a fool.


If I am a whackjob in your opinion, then I'll wear that label proudly, knowing that I might be a whackjob, but I'm a whackjob who is CORRECT.


Ralph Deeds from Birmingham, Michigan on September 02, 2009:

Did I use an expletive? I don't recall what it was.

My post, if memory serves, was something like "Round up the usual suspects! We have nearly all the Hubber whackjobs on one site. Hal attracted them like flies on horse crap!" I wasn't aware that s..t is still considered an expletive. You find it in many publications. Of course you're free to make your own rules.

Hal Licino (author) from Toronto on September 02, 2009:

Sorry, Ralph Deeds. Can't publish expletives. Please recomment with an edit. Thanks.

Hal Licino (author) from Toronto on August 27, 2009:

We like to think of you as a mushroom. We keep you in the dark and feed you lots of bulls**t. :)

A Texan on August 25, 2009:

Obama's a socialist???????? Nobody ever tells me anything!

Hal Licino (author) from Toronto on August 13, 2009:

Spasiba, Comrade Harvey! :)

Harvey Stelman from Illinois on August 10, 2009:

Commrad Hal, Das vidanya, Nystrovia! Great points, I've been calling him a communist for months.

Hal Licino (author) from Toronto on August 06, 2009:

Thanks. However I have ZERO faith in the "opposition." The GOP's response to the wholesale demolition of the USA would be laughable if it wasn't so tragic. As much as I hate to admit it, it very well may be time to get rid of the bipartisan system of government in the USA. It's a joke, and it has destroyed the nation.

Don Simkovich from Pasadena, CA on August 06, 2009:

You made this really clear. Nice job taking complex information and making it easy to read. Things have happened, unnecessarily, so fast but now I think people are more clear on the directions the Obamanation is trying to take things and hopefully they won't like it. But does the opposition have strong enough leadership to provide a lasting alternative?

Hal Licino (author) from Toronto on June 29, 2009:

Unfortunately Obama's a capitalist like I'm a Communist. :(

creativeMind from Cochin on June 28, 2009:

"Currently 32% of Americans believe Obama to be a Socialist." .... is it so??

i thought he's a capitalist

Hal Licino (author) from Toronto on June 28, 2009:

Haneline8: Fortunately, there are constitutional and legal options open to the American public. The most effective is an impeachment. A very simple mass demonstration in D.C. demanding impeachment will certainly get the ball rolling. Get all your friends to tell their friends and get to D.C.! If you get even half a million people marching, the avalanche will begin!

Will Apse: My point is that the financial system regulations that were in effect were more than sufficient. It was a lack of enforcement that created the problem.

Will Apse on June 27, 2009:

A little regulation here, a few rules there and ordinary people might still have a roof over their heads at the end of the year.

Nobody likes government interference but until the financial clowns learn how to behave (which is never in two hundred years) I think its better than soup kitchens.

Haneline8 on June 27, 2009:

What can we do about this? I know we can vote the suckers out at election time but with ACORN and all the election corruption and Rahm taking over the census and all, even the elections are not reliable anymore. I've been wondering if we, the citizens, could sue the federal government. They are breaking the law left and right. They are doing unconstitutional things every day. Do we have no legal recourse? I know my questions may sound ignorant. I'm just beside myself wondering what we can do??

Hal Licino (author) from Toronto on June 27, 2009:

Well, so far, the teleprompter script has been written by Marx, Engels, and Trotsky! :(

comp3820 on June 26, 2009:

Wow! Thats pretty scary. Sometimes I wonder how people can actually like his governing, but then I remember that he can use a teleprompter well, and thats all that matters to the American people

Hal Licino (author) from Toronto on June 22, 2009:

You're absolutely right! :)

You might find this Hub fun reading: Touring The United Socialist States of America's Capital

I think I got Lenin's head on the Lincoln statue just right! :)

Madame X on June 20, 2009:

Hey Hal- you left out a policy.

"When Mao Zedong launched the "Four Pests" campaign during the Great Leap Forward in the 1950s, citizens were ordered to kill flies, mosquitoes, rats and sparrows."

Looks like ole' Barry just did his part!

Hal Licino (author) from Toronto on June 09, 2009:

Jeff, i come from Europe and I've lived in Iron Curtain countries, and I can tell you categorically that if you dispute the facts I've outlined in my series of Hubs about Creeping Communism in the USA you are the one who has no idea what you're talking about. I have no knowledge of Kornai's book, but from its synopsis: "The second half deals with the processes of reform and concludes that the reform of classical socialist systems is doomed to failure as they are unable to renew themselves internally." I definitely agree on that point! :)

Jeff on June 09, 2009:

Hal, I come from Europe, I came to this country to flee the rampant socialism that I saw everywhere there, under one name or another, and I can tell you categorically that you have no idea what you are talking about. You want to read about socialism? Let me recommend Janos Kornai's excellent The Socialist System: The Political Economy of Communism. If you are going to talk about something, you might as well educate yourself about it.

Hal Licino (author) from Toronto on June 01, 2009:

Thanks, James. You're absolutely correct about invoking cloture, and the attempts to legislate this down to 51 votes is a way to demolish any GOP filibusters which would try to stop this Marxist legislation from passing.

And, hey, they don't call me "Hal Licino el hombre con los mas grandes cojones en la Sierra Madre" for nuthin'. :)

James A Watkins from Chicago on June 01, 2009:

Most of what you say here, and predict will be attempted next by these Marxists is true.  One thing, though, votes in the Senate have always been decided by majority vote.  You are referring to the cloture rule, which is with 60 votes deliberation can be bypassed and the bill taken quickly to a final vote (or more specifically the prevention of filibusters).  But 51 votes always has been enough to pass a bill in the Senate.  You did a great job with the Hub, though, and at least you've got a pair. 

Hal Licino (author) from Toronto on May 31, 2009:

eovery, I can tell you exactly where Reagan is right now. Turning in his grave! In the 20 years since he left office, we've gone from Reaganomics to the Proletarian Paradise! :(

Madame X, yes, every day above ground is a good day. As much as young people may be well meaning, an inordinate number of youths are intoxicated by Obama's Cult Of Personality to the point where they may be convinced that these ARE the right policies to implement, instead of a wholesale demolition of the United States of America. :(
