Obama’s Math – “subtract and divide”

October 26, 2008

There was a popular joke in the former Soviet Union about how communists knew only two arithmetical operations, subtraction and division. That meant that they could only take away (in Russian it is the same word as ‘subtract’) from the rich and divide between the poor. The Soviet socialism excelled in these operations for example by taking land and property from hard-working “rich” farmers and distributing it between their poor supporters starving the whole country in the process.

In Obama’s own words, he wants “to spread the wealth around” by taxing the rich and giving the poor a welfare check. “Obama believes in redistributing wealth, not in policies that grow our economy and create jobs and opportunities for all Americans,” McCain said Thursday morning in Ormond Beach, Fla. “Senator Obama is more interested in controlling who gets your piece of the pie than he is in growing the pie. You have the same dream that Joe the Plumber has. … Obama wants to spread the wealth around … That means fewer jobs.”

All Obama’s associations in his Chicago neighborhood confirm that he is a “closet socialist”. He started his political career in the living room of a former domestic terrorist, William Ayers who admitted that he is a Marxist and Anarchist. For twenty years he attended a church where his spiritual leader was virulently anti-american pastor Jeremiah Wright, a strong proponent of Marxism based Black Liberation Theology. Obama helped his other neighbor, a renowned anti-Semite, Louis Farrakhan to organize Million Men March. Another Obama’s associate is Rashid Khalidi, a harsh critic of Israel, who made statements supportive of Palestinian terror and worked on behalf of the Palestine Liberation Organization while it was involved in anti-Western terrorism and was labeled by the State Department as a terror group. In August 2007 just before he filed with the US Federal Elections Commission for his presidential candidacy Senator Obama went to Kenya to campaign for his Kenyan cousin Odinga, Marxist Muslim politician.

It looks like his phrase “let’s spread the wealth around” was not just a slip of the tongue, but rather a glimpse into Obama’s worldview. If Barak Obama is elected and Congress is completely controlled by democrats, we’ll have one more feature typical of socialist system – one party controlling the country with the help of the liberal media propaganda machine. It is a slippery slope that may diminish the freedom of speech as well as all other freedoms in this great country. We saw a preview of that when Obama’s campaign in “KGB style” investigated Joe the Plumber even getting access to his supposedly private income tax records only because he asked a simple question . Most dangerously, even if he creates economic disaster by his socialist policies, like his supporter Jimmy Carter did in late 70s, Obama’s government can lock the power by controlling who gets the welfare checks.

It is not too late to prove to comrade Obama and his radical friends on November 4th that America is based on other two arithmetical operations – “add and multiply” that represent creativity and entrepreneurial spirit of small and large businesses that create jobs and multiply wealth for everybody.
