Having restrained myself from a good and juicy "I told You So" for many years, I indulge myself now, briefly. I said it before and I'll say it again, the likely next president of the United States (barring war and martial law) is a Marxist-Socialist.
How on earth could I suspect such a thing, never mind put it in writing, you ask? Well, his rhetoric around his sponsoring of the Global Poverty Act, which would dilute the Constitution and enforce taxation without representation, for one thing. The fact that his Texas office sported a Che Guevara poster for a time is another. This was reported in the London Times.
Lately we learn that his campaign website, which allows for specific groups in its Community Blog section, has a lively conversation ongoing in the Marxists Socialists For Obama blog.
"This group is for self-proclaimed Marxists/Communists/Socialists for the election of Barack Obama to the Presidency. By no means is he a true Marxist, but under Karl Marx's writings we are to support the party with the best interests of the mobilization of the proletariat. Though the Democratic Socialists of America or the Communist Patty of America may have more Socialistic values, it is pointless to vote for these candidates due to the fact that there is virtually no chance they will be elected on a National level. The members of this group are not Leninists, Stalinists, etc. and do not support or condone the actions of North Korea, China, Cuba or any other self-proclaimed "Marxist States." They do not in anyway represent the Marxist philosophy nor do they represent Socialism/ Communsim. We support Barack Obama because he knows what is best for the people!"
For the proletariat, you mean.
