The Ideology of Obama's Folly

Read carefully because the below Socialist Party USA “manifesto” explains clearly the path Obama supposes to force us down.  

It even shows why Obama DEMANDS certain compromises in bills such as the recent budget “crisis” and ObamaCare.  In the Oct 2009 edition of their American Socialist Voter newsletter (below), they even listed the US legislators who belong to their organization in 2009.

“Who We Are” from the Socialist Party USA (SPUSA) Statement of Principles....

THE SOCIALIST PARTY (SPUSA) strives to establish a radical democracy that places people's lives under their own  control - a non-racist, classless, feminist socialist society... where working people own and control the means of production and distribution through democratically-controlled public agencies; where full employment is realized for everyone who wants to work; where workers have the right to form unions freely, and to strike and engage in other forms of job actions; and where the production of society is used for the benefit of all humanity, not for the private profit of a few. We believe socialism and democracy are one and indivisible.  The working class is in a key and central position to fight back against the ruling capitalist class and its power.  The working class is the major force worldwide that can lead the way to a socialist future - to a real radical democracy from below.  The Socialist Party fights for progressive changes compatible with a socialist future.  We support militant working class struggles and electoral action, independent of the capitalist controlled two-party system, to present socialist alternatives.  We strive for democratic revolutions - radical and fundamental changes in the structure and quality of economic, political, and personal relations - to abolish the power now exercised by the few who control great wealth and the government.  The Socialist Party is a democratic, multi-tendency organization, with structure and practices visible and accessible to all members.

The Socialist Party of America announced in their October 2009 newsletter that 70 Congressional democrats currently belong to their caucus which also includes the group Democratic Socialists of America (DSA).  This admission was recently posted on

Looks like a lot of socialists in our government?  And that list above doesn’t even include President Obama and his administration, cabinet, and staff.  Now do you understand why we are being forced down the path toward socialism?  You might want to include the above list of legislators on your mailing lists, e-mailing lists, Tweet lists, and fax lists, for your “socialization” of America concerns.  If you don’t become pro-active, you will look up one day soon and see that we are already there!

The next few paragraphs are just plain scary!  They are found on page 10 of 10/1/09 edition of the American Socialist Voter newsletter (scroll down to page 10 on the link above).  I think it is pretty safe to assume that all of the above legislators, along with President Obama believe in these principles of Social Redistribution listed in their newsletter below?  Especially notice that the “Social Redistribution” is not just redistribution of wealth, but also redistributions of “resources”.  It’s no accident we are being forced, head long down this slippery slope by the Obama administration and other card carrying legislators listed above.

If you read the below “manifesto” from the Oct 2009 edition of the American Socialist Voter newsletter, carefully, it makes clear the reason behind every unfathomable decision taken by Obama and his administration.

Socialized Redistribution

Socialized redistribution--the shift of wealth AND RESOURCES from the rich to the rest of society—will require:

1.  Massive redistribution of income from corporations and the wealthy to wage earners and the poor and the public sector, in order to provide the main source of new funds for social programs, income maintenance andinfrastructure rehabilitation

2.   A massive shift of public resources from the military (the main user of existing discretionary funds) to civilian uses. Although such reforms will be very difficult to achieve on a national scale in the short term, their urgency increases as income inequality intensifies.  Over time, income redistribution and social programs will be critical not only to the poor but to the great majority of working people.  The defense and expansion of government programs that promote social justice, equal education for all children, universal health care, environmental protection, and guaranteed minimum income and social well-being, is critical for the next Left.   At the same time, the military Keynesianism that has dominated federal expenditures, constricting the capacity of governments at all levels to respond adequately to social needs, must end. Much of the current distortion in government spending and taxation has its roots in the massive military and national security build-up in the 1980s, combined with the massive tax cuts for the wealthy. The great run-up in national debt is due directly to military-led deficit financing.  Reduced military expenditures and more equitable taxation represent the only sources of funds on the scale needed to provide the social programs required to ameliorate declining living standards.  Together, economic democracy, global justice, and social redistribution are the linchpins of a broad-based anti-corporate left, that is international in character and local in its reliance on popular control of economic resources and decision-making.

Democratic socialists reject an either-or approach to electoral coalition building, focused solely on a new party or on realignment within the Democratic Party. The growth of PAC-driven, candidate-based, entrepreneurial politics in the last25 years leaves little hope for an immediate, principled electoral response to the rightward, pro-corporate drift in American politics.  The fundamental task of democratic socialists is to build anti-corporate social movements capable of winning reforms that empower people. Since such social movements seek to influence state policy, they will intervene in electoral politics, whether through Democratic primaries, non-partisan local elections, or third party efforts. Our electoral work aims at building “majoritarian” coalitions capable of not only electing public officials on the anti-corporate program of these movements, but also of holding officials accountable after they are elected.  The U.S. electoral system makes third parties difficult to build at both the national and state level.  Winner take-all districts; the absence of proportional representation; open primaries; executive-run governments that make coalition governments impossible; state legislative control over ballot access and election laws all combine to impede third parties.  Much of progressive, independent political action will continue to occur in Democratic Party primaries in support of candidates who represent a broad progressive coalition. In such instances, democratic socialists will support coalitional campaigns based on labor, women, people of color and other potentially anti-corporate elements.  Electoral tactics are only a means for democratic socialists; the building of a powerful anti-corporate coalition is the end result expectation.  Where third party or non-partisan candidates mobilize such coalitions, democratic socialists will build such organizations and candidacies.  However, to democratize U.S. electoral politics - whatever its party form -requires serious campaign finance reform both within and without the Democratic Party.
