    I've learned to spot "socialists" from my days in high school just by what they say
    and, even not having any money, their mermaid songs will never seduce me…

    The 'CHANGE" Obama promised the America people is the same "change" Lenin offered the Russian people, Fidel Castro the Cuban people and Hugo Chavez the Venezuelan people and only a rotten, abject and shameless leftist media, can still
    sing their praises and call both of them "PRESIDENTS"…"CHANGE" that are
    nothing but a jump off the frying pan and into the fire…

    I agree with Mr. KURTZ on that, asides from his reelection bid in 2012, we have to
    watch closely what new tricks OBAMA has still in his sleeves and hope and pray or
    force the people of conscience in CONGRESS to stop him in his tracks or else
    curse eternally their allowing this country's demise either by ommission or

    And by the way, what about bringing back the "MADE IN USA" tag ??

    We got a peek of Barry's views on elections prior to the mid-terms. He told us that we we'd vote "poorly" if infuenced by "fear". But the mid-terms changed nothing for Bar, just the pawns that he' used for the prior two years. 2012 will be a direct threat to him. One that he won't survive (politically, of course) unless he can control it. In my heart of hearts, I believe that if Barry's presidency is threatened, that we'll have martial law some time before the general elections. Just until cooler heads prevail we'll be told. The elections will be "delayed", a tactic that will be embraced by the left….for our own good you know…..

    • Stephen_Brady

      As a fellow kafir, I agree with you that Obama's presdency could turn in martial law, especially if the threat to him is a Republican President-Elect. I would, among millions of others, turn out into the streets and stay there, no matter the threat against me.

      Such a situation would in and of itself be a Constitutional crisis. But it would escalate if SCOTUS would rule the delay of election, or the delay of an inauguration to be an unconstitutional usurpation of authority. At this point, it would be up to the armed forces and the American people to see that his actions would not stand.

        The left was saying exactly the same thing before the 2004 and 2008 elections – that Bush would not cede power if threatened. For two groups that claim to hate each other so much, they sure seem to think alike.

        And if Obama wins, the right will claim election fraud, just like those on the left did in 2004.

        • Stephen_Brady

          There is one serious difference between the 2004, 2008, election cycles and what could happen in 2012. George W. Bush, for all of his faults, was an honorable man. Barack Hussein Obama is a weak leader, surrounded by sycophants, and his administration is riddled with communists and fellow-travelers. If what I think is going to happen next year does, in the election, they will know that they have lost their best chance to "change" America, possibly for generations. They may urge him on to extreme actions.

          When they do, we will go to Washington, DC, and make Cairo look like a Sunday School picnic. Make no mistake about it …

    Exactly why I joined Americans For Petraeus 2012 to draft a real leader to defeat Pres Obama and restore some sanity. americansforpetraeus2012.org

      I am troubled by Petraeous. I think he is also a socialist. maybe not in the normal definition of socialist but a socialist never-the-less.

      I do not think he is sufficiently principled to be a president. (obama is not a benchmark for sufficiently principled either) if he was he would have resigned before doing obama's bidding in regards to Iraq and Afghanistan.

    • Stephen_Brady

      Steve, I think that Gen. Petraeus is a man of honor, who could easily win the election. But what do you get, if he does?

      He has described himself as a "fiscal conservative" … read that any way you wish … and a "social liberal". So basically, you get someone who MIGHT balance the books, but otherwise will look like Dwight Eisenhower (in whose administration a lot of things slipped).

    RE: Last question. Probably not, specifically, but generally yes. The center of gravity of the American electorate is that they are generally uniformed and/or confused; and the Progressives know and promulgate this. Consequently, there is a lot of maneuvering room within the public's and the Republican Party's OODA loop to cause both to make wrong decisions and take little, if any, effective action. (OODA = Observation, Orientation, Decision, Action) In 2008 people kinda sorta knew something was amiss, but what was their alternative: the kinda sorta Republican John McCain.

    There is a race for time going on as the gaps in the electorate's OODA loop are closing and a defense is building to close the gaps in knowledge. Then comes the offense (partially begun in November 2010, but still there are Republican politicians that are playing under the old paradigm and playing patty cake). If we thought the psychological operations (PSYOPS) of the past were bad, watch between now and November 2012. This next game is for all the marbles! They know it; the Republicans thoroughly don't (yet, and when, too late).

    • 2maxpower

      yes …I forgot how many votes McCain delivered to obama

  • Fred Dawes

    If the people who control the system want obama in for 4 more years! he will have it but if the boys want some other game player, obama will be out! do you still think that your vote means anything? and if you do that is really funny after all the infor out in the open and looking you in the face with all the info that tells you voting means nothing you must be a total fool. its not about right or wrong its about control.

  • Sheep Herder

    Too funny you sheep believe half this crap being spewed. Please do some real research, you may just find not only is Obama a crook, but all Republicans and Democrats are the same. Thier "fake" battles are only for us to believe they are fighting for us, there is no longer a democracy in America. You sheep lost that years ago.
