Yes America, This Really is Happening...Our Potential President Has Marxist Leanings

by Bill Sammon of FOXNews.com

Barack Obama laughs off charges of socialism. Joe Biden scoffs at references to Marxism. Both men shrug off accusations of liberalism.

But Obama himself acknowledges that he was drawn to socialists and even Marxists as a college student. He continued to associate with Marxists later in life, even choosing to launch his political career in the living room of a self-described Marxist, William Ayers, in 1995, when Obama was 34.

Obama's affinity for Marxists began when he attended Occidental College in Los Angeles.

"To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully," the Democratic presidential candidate wrote in his memoir, "Dreams From My Father." "The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists."

Obama's interest in leftist politics continued after he transferred to Columbia University in New York. He lived on Manhattan's Upper East Side, venturing to the East Village for what he called "the socialist conferences I sometimes attended at Cooper Union."

After graduating from Columbia in 1983, Obama spent a year working for a consulting firm and then went to work for what he described as "a Ralph Nader offshoot" in Harlem.

"In search of some inspiration, I went to hear Kwame Toure, formerly Stokely Carmichael of Black Panther fame, speak at Columbia," Obama wrote in "Dreams," which he published in 1995. "At the entrance to the auditorium, two women, one black, one Asian, were selling Marxist literature."

Obama supporters point out that plenty of Americans flirt with radical ideologies in college, only to join the political mainstream later in life. But Obama, who made a point of noting how "carefully" he chose his friends in college, also chose to launch his political career in the Chicago living room of Ayers, a domestic terrorist who in 2002 proclaimed: "I am a Marxist."

Also present at that meeting was Ayers' wife, fellow terrorist Bernardine Dohrn, who once gave a speech extolling socialism, communism and "Marxism-Leninism."

Obama has been widely criticized for choosing the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, an anti-American firebrand, as his pastor. Wright is a purveyor of black liberation theology, which analysts say is based in part on Marxist ideas.

Few political observers go so far as to accuse Obama, the Democratic presidential nominee, of being a Marxist. But Republican John McCain has been accusing Obama of espousing socialism ever since the Democrat told an Ohio plumber named Joe earlier this month that he wanted to "spread the wealth around."

Obama's running mate, Biden, recently contradicted his boss, saying: "He is not spreading the wealth around." The remark came as Biden was answering a question from a TV anchor who asked: "How is Senator Obama not being a Marxist if he intends to spread the wealth around?"

"Are you joking? Is this a joke? Or is that a real question?" an incredulous Biden shot back. "It's a ridiculous comparison."

But the debate intensified Monday with the surfacing of a 2001 radio interview in which Obama lamented the Supreme Court's inability to enact "redistribution of wealth" -- a key tenet of socialism. On Tuesday, McCain said Obama aspires to become "Redistributionist-in-Chief."

Obama has managed to cultivate the image of a political moderate in spite of his consistently liberal voting record. In 2006, he published a second memoir, "The Audacity of Hope," that leaves little doubt about his adherence to the left.

"The arguments of liberals are more often grounded in reason and fact," Obama wrote in "Audacity." "Much of what I absorbed from the sixties was filtered through my mother, who to the end of her life would proudly proclaim herself an unreconstructed liberal."

National Journal magazine ranked Obama as the most liberal member of the Senate. The publication is far from conservative, employing such journalists as Linda Douglass, who resigned in May to become Obama's traveling press secretary.

Kenny,
Don't let your heart be troubled. You have long called for revival and a return in the church to biblicity.

It is likely we will soon be jailed, fired, ousted from our homes, stripped of our guns, and more simply for believing what we do.

This is good. It will make for the separation we ought to have embraced as our fathers in the faith did.

The "church" will go away. Or it will become an arm of the state. What is left will be a purified remnant.

Better still, God willing, "Christian" broadcasting will be banned or curtailed. No more Joel Osteen. No more Oral Roberts. No more Billy Graham. No more Rick Warren. If these folks survive in their ministries, they will have to make such striking compromises that there will be no doubt that they are not the same as the real saints of the remnant.

That means this: THE GOSPEL WILL AGAIN BE HEARD IN ITS TRUTH. The other "gospels" of health, wealth. and postmodernism will no longer have traction. The reason for this is easy. Saints being persecuted will know their Sovereign didn't promise health and wealth. And living in a land where truth and lie are in open warfare will show postmodernism to be the lie it has always been to anyone who cares to think.

So rejoice, my brother. Our God is going to do great things. You will be the bearer of the Good News to your neighbors and co-workers and none of them will think of Rick Warren when they hear you.

The real church is about to be purified and to grow like crazy. The gospel will advance. The prices we all will pay will be nothing to us when we see Him.

God Bless,
Phil Perkins. PS Be prepared to save all the info from your blog. It will likely be banned in the next year.

It's a shame. So many professing "christians" support Obama even when Obama openly supports:

- The killing of pre-born human beings.

- The refusal to feed and clothe human beings born from failed abortions.

- The teaching of 5 years old children about the God-condemning practice of sodomy and sexual activities.

- Taking hard earned wealth from the workers to reward the lazy.

- Befriending himself and the US with enemies of the US.

- Creating an anti-capitalistic government that becomes the all-supplying Nanny of the American state.

- Doing away with a parent's right to be notified of the sexual activity.

- A child's freedom to seek an abortion without the parents knowledge.

- Unrestricted access of teens to contraceptives, abortion and homosexual lifestyle education.

- Penalizing and prosecuting of parents who do not provide government approved healthcare for their children.

- Promises to appoint several federal judges who will interpret American Law with an international mind-set and who will likely create their own laws by judicial fiat.


The list goes on. And this is the person that millions of Americans look to for the nation's Great Hope. If this man is elected, then maybe America deserves what they have asked for. May God have mercy on us all!

Obama is an evil puppet of the devil and his God-denying schemes.

Christians need to pray and ask God to move us to repent and the country to repent.
Do we as christians follow the Lord in all areas of our lives?
I believe God has not given up on America.
Pray for America , preach the Word, and live like Christ.
God will still be on the Throne no matter who is the president .
Remember we had bad presidents before.
Remember Jon Kerry was up in the poles also.
Fight on our knees and vote .
Raise your children to serve the lord and know the Word.
Don't give up!
Mike Oliver

Perhaps our new President will awaken the faithful to be more discerning.
