I don't see where that says anything about raising the corp tax rate.

People will accept he is a marxist when he becomes a marxist.

Those grapes sure are sour.

I repeat, has Obama done or proposed anything close to something as Marxist-like as a central authority trying to tell someone what they can charge for their product or service or telling someone what they can receive for their labor? Thats what Nixon and Jerry Ford tried to do. So they must be Marxist - cause Obama hasn't done or proposed anything this extreme.

Yep. It's called Obamacare. Try to pay attention.

I guess we have to get used to the 'new normal.'

We didn't have the ACA.


Anyone who thinks that the government telling citizens that they have to purchase a product from a private company is Marxism has no clue what Marxism is. Is it also "Marxism" to require people to purchase car insurance in order to drive?

What Obama policies are Marxist, exactly?


To each according to their needs, from each according to their ability.

Let's see.

I'm not so sure that any of us can be so sure about that statement.


The Founders and Framers created a nation-state whose central government was confined to the specifically enumerated authority and functions granted by the US Constitution.

Obama and today's Dem Party reject those limitations on FedGov authority and function. That is to say, more specifically, they reject the philosophy of governance bequeathed to us by the Founders and Framers.

As such, Obama and today's Dem Party embrace a philosophy of governance that is alien to that of the Founders and Framers.

2) Redistribution of Wealth is a great tool for FedGov to use to establish Economic Fairness. We need to borrow more and print more money, so that we can have even more Fairness. There are plenty of rich people to take from, and they didn't build that anyway, so, it is Fair for them to pay their Fair Share.



We've been taxing the rich and giving to the poor for a while now (and the top tax bracket is low relative to the past). We can debate the pros and cons of that all night, but here's what I want to know - Why is it suddenly Marxist when Obama does it?

And another thing...how is Obama simultaneously a Marxist and a socialist/communist?

Quit being an asshat.

Fascism and Communism are BOTH Marxist/Leninist Idealogies.

They are essentially kissing cousins.


And, you KNOW this to be true.

Yes.

Are you suggesting that when we look for the clear meaning of a document that the document can "imply" that we must ignore the explicit four corners of limits specifically enumerated by that document?

In other words, are you suggesting that the US Constitution is written in some kind of secret code that only leftist and activist jurists can understand?

The Constutition clearly limits FedGovs authority and function, but, by some secret and subtle implications, we are REALLY supposed to read that document as holding that FedGov's authority and functions are essentially UN-limited.

Certainly, no serious person would suggest that, right?

And yet, this is exactly what you are suggesting.
