Obama’s Declaration of Socialism

Obama mentioned the Declaration of Independence, but his inaugural speech was all about collectivism. The philosophy behind the Declaration is rooted in individual freedom. Obama has it exactly backwards.

The “rights” movement of the left has been transformed into redistribution and class warfare, combined with the welfare state. The real “social justice” they talk about is economic redistribution. His campaign didn’t even address individual “freedom” as he calls it — unless that is about killing babies — it was all about the collective. Collective being the sum total of the special interests he panders to.

Obama said:

1)What makes us exceptional – what makes us American – is our allegiance to an idea, articulated in a declaration made more than two centuries ago:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Today we continue a never-ending journey, to bridge the meaning of those words with the realities of our time. For history tells us that while these truths may be self-evident, they have never been self-executing; that while freedom is a gift from God, it must be secured by His people here on Earth.

2)My fellow Americans, the oath I have sworn before you today, like the one recited by others who serve in this Capitol, was an oath to God and country, not party or faction – and we must faithfully execute that pledge during the duration of our service.

Not self-executing? Remember, “you didn’t build that… somebody else made it happen.”

Individualism is out the window, long gone in his politics of division and class warfare. It is the politics of materialism. Their “social justice” is really redistributive justice. I suppose he will finally admit that is what his “fairness” doctrine is all about in his second term, unchained from the voters.

As Goldwater said decades ago, the left is driven by materialism. Even the morality they speak of has an element of materialism. Don’t you find it ironic that Obama only mentioned the Constitution he swore to uphold in passing.(…that thing) He seems to think backwards. But just as MLK Jr. used the Declaration, Obama wraps his speech with it. Then again, imagine a Liberal like Obama giving a speech based on the Constitution?

He adds:

“The patriots of 1776 did not fight to replace the tyranny of a king with the privileges of a few or the rule of a mob. They gave to us a Republic, a government of, and by, and for the people, entrusting each generation to keep safe our founding creed.

But exactly what is Obama giving us? A mob and a king. A king backed by a mob, with an absent and complacent free press. It works for him… quite literally. And a king that sanctions and endorses mob rule – if it’s within the orthodoxy of central authority.

So we see, with Obama our fight is not just against his bucket list of policies, but against a philosophy, an ideology and a political movement behind it, driven from top. (campaign org turns lobby)

He frames it trying to disguise it, and then throws a straw man in to add credibility

But we have always understood that when times change, so must we; that fidelity to our founding principles requires new responses to new challenges; that preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action. For the American people can no more meet the demands of today’s world by acting alone than American soldiers could have met the forces of fascism or communism with muskets and militias. No single person can train all the math and science teachers we’ll need to equip our children for the future, or build the roads and networks and research labs that will bring new jobs and businesses to our shores. Now, more than ever, we must do these things together, as one nation, and one people.

“Demands of today’s world” — whatever all that is — compared with fascism or communism, good comparison. (sarcasm) Or better comparing technology, markets, goals, ideas and personal struggles compared with fascism. From the Socialist-in-chief himself. That should make anyone chuckle. (one of those struggles is against institutionalized ideology of the Left.) But it is different when its a foreign country or an outsider that is pursuing the philosophy. When its inside your own country from the top down it’s quite different. Did the Nazis extinguish Hitler or his policies? You know the answer.

In fact, it was just the opposite; they gleefully went along and approved. Sound familiar? Just because a charismatic type A person can make a good sounding case doesn’t mean it is the best idea. ObamaCare is a glaring example, and the stimulus would be another. When the smoke cleared it wasn’t as good, or popular as it sounded. We even had Pelosi telling us they had to pass it before we know what’s in it. They tried to do it on amnesty but were stopped.

Goldwater said:
“[One] cannot be economically free, or even efficient, if he is enslaved politically; conversely, man’s political freedom is illusory if he is dependent for his economic needs on the State.”

And that is precisely what Obama has in mind and endorses, political slavery — individually and collectively.

Much of the equality or fairness Obama speaks about is really egalitarianism of the economic kind, just dressed in a fancy “fairness” package. And the left suffers under its own false pretenses about  conservatism. It is not simply an economic theory. But that is basically what the lefts ideology ends up being, a doctrine of economic egalitarianism. Or collective materialism. With a few words about civil rights thrown in, which they think they can keep on creating to suit their politics.

The Left feels it is their exclusive job to equalize, or that is what their rhetoric suggests. Enforcing that fairness just happens to lead to more power and control for ruling class elites. It also tends to get expensive to purchase all the votes to keep all that “fairness” flowing.  Sounds like another one of his “investments”.

Note: please don’t give me the ‘definition of socialism’ lecture. Do the math with the modern left(post 60’s), the green movement, EPA dictates, green industry, and Kelo’s decision. Then connect all the dots. And remember even Hitler did not want to abolish “private property”, rather everyone should understand that they are an “agent of the state.” So spare the academic arguments.

    Damn fine post Bull…one of your very best! I’ve noticed the one word that trips up all radicals in The Declaration Of Independence is the word “pursuit”. We all know Webster’s definition of pursuit and it doesn’t have shit to do with “taking” from those who have worked their ass off and “giving” to those that have not. Even in pursuing; there is no promise of success. It’s a chance. A fair chance for all to “try” and achieve their goals. Zero guarantees. That’s where the radicals take over with their screwed idea of “forced” happiness. Even if it means dragging the all the successful people down to the level of those who are bums or simply didn’t hit their mark all are the same, but it’s not equal happiness it’s equal misery. Of course even the radicals believe in having an elite class and those that make the rules for everyone else will damn sure ensure they are in the elite class.

    Just like our new f*cked up Obamacide system. They forced it down our throats, but there just happens to be an article written in Obamacide that our Dipshit City politicians are exempt from having to use Obamacide. I guess they totally forget about the 28th amendment….again….

      Dave, thanks for the comps. Its been coming to a head, and Obama picks the inaugural to force it to pop. Pursuit, great point I agree. He’s now trying to justify it with the DOI, the very idea he opposes. If we the people have to depend on Barack Insane to define equality we’re in big trouble. I’d like to take his “rules of the road” and shove them up his hit the road azz.He believes in equality, really? Then why don’t we show him real equality? Radicals seem to like this treatment, they can’t get enough of it. I wish I could say people are only going to take so much, but I’m even less optimistic than I was four years ago. Their elite ruling class have got to go and they don’t need subsidized for it. Once they got people’s healthcare, they got a huge lever on them

    Bull, excellent analysis of the King’s declarations. We do not have a Republic any longer, but a King who lectures us and tries to tell us we have to change the Constitution to fit today’s world. What rubbish.

    I hadn’t even read the speech. Heard on Hannity’s radio show that the speech was a bunch of preaching and sermonizing to the American people.

    Oh, sure, none of us can get by without the Feds poking their noses into every aspect of our life, because we are so stupid and ignorant we can’t figure things out by ourselves.

    Too bad and sad that so many on the left have no brains so they need a tyrannical government to help them. Meanwhile not even realizing the kind of slavery they are being put under.

      Pepp,

      You’re exactly right, its the worst place he could kick us. Well, that and he’s already declared the Constitution a King’s decree.

      And why not? He has a captive audience of drooling loonies that eat the stuff up.

      Yea, the nanny state’s official but it comes with a high price tag. (like all his plans) I’d like him to tell his drooling base that if you want that abortion we want to know everything about you, and everything you are even thinking of doing; fill ou t all the government papers; and tell them there is a 70% chance your name and address will be published in the newspaper. But hey, nothing personal.

      They just hinge on every word he says, waitiing for the next decree. Heck, he has them manufacture their own chain links to use on them but they pay no mind to that. Its always someone else, someone else will lose their freedom, not us. (we like him) Someone else will suffer, not us. Its the Berkeley mindset after 9/11 — “we are the tolerant ones”. Fairness? For him to even use the word is repulsive.

        I love the paragraph about making abortions difficult to get. Why not? It’s almost impossible to get a yes on drilling for oil. Why should there be any difference? But, we know the answer to that. He’s nothing more than a baby killer himself and soon to be killer of us.

        LOL! Their own chain links. That’s what they are on, a chain gang and they have no intelligence to realize what is happening to them. They continue to be overjoyed by their “goodies” and him shredding our Constitution they have no clue about all the freedoms they are losing.

In the movie 2016, we were told how he believes America should pay back for “its’ terrible deeds colonIializing”. I’d like to know what country that was. We usually help a country, then get kicked out with no appreciation. This shows you how warped he is and sick, sick, sick!

      The biggest thing that stood out to me that the Sumbitch said “nothing” about in his coronation, was jobs. Lord forbid this commie, POS give a rats ass about job growth. Keep em’ employed and sucking on momma’s tit like all good Alinsky’s want there subjects to keep them in line.

        That is what Hannity said. No mention of jobs. Nothing but bullshit. No he doesn’t give a hoot about jobs. He needs all those loony tunes on the government dole like he is and Congress soaking up the tax payer money. I’ve always said the Congress is the biggest welfare drain we have in this country. Just who do they think they are since they don’t represent us any more?

  4. Thanks for a well-written and informative post on this subject! “Socialism,” wrote Churchill, “is the philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, the gospel of envy.” I think your post hit every one of those notes.

    Incidentally, something you didn’t cover, but which is inevitable, is summed up in one of Margaret Thatcher’s aphorisms: “The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.”

    Great blog! I’m definitely going to be a regular visitor from now on.

      247SV: Thanks for the comps and visit, I appreciate it. I never heard the first quote. Churchill what a man. Maggy wasn’t bad either — very blunt. “The President, the Pope, and the Prime Minister” by O’Sullivan was a good book as well, with lots of factoids I found interesting . These days, you mention Margaret Thatcher in mixed company and watch the eyebrows and looks…. If they don’t say “Yuck” first. It’s kind of funny.
