Wow, what a week it’s been on the political front. So many Whitehouse scandals that it’s becoming hard to keep track of all of them. Last week, Obama told the OSU grads to “resist the voices calling out tyranny” then this week we learn more examples of the tyranny that does exist in the government.
Since Obama came on the scene in 2007, I’ve had to check definitions of words I haven’t really heard mentioned since my World History days in high school. The reason for this is that Obama’s mother and grandparents were known communists. His grandfather introduced him to a mentor, Frank Davis, who was on the FBI’s list as #1 communist. In Chicago he surrounded himself with known socialists and communists.
So naturally, when he was campaigning in 2008 and said he wanted to “transform America”, a lot of people asked ‘transform to WHAT?’. We now are seeing the results of his transformation, hence the need to fully understand the underlying messages in his speeches and the terms people use to describe Obama’s style of ruling over the country which is following Saul Alinsky’s “Rules For Radicals” (see link below).
Republic – A form of government in which power is explicitly vested in the people, who in turn exercise their power through elected representatives. Today, the terms republic and democracy are virtually interchangeable, but historically the two differed. Democracy implied direct rule by the people, all of whom were equal, whereas republic implied a system of government in which the will of the people was mediated by representatives, who might be wiser and better educated than the average person. (per our Constitution, USA is a republic … or it was)
Democracy – A system of government in which power is vested in the people who rule either directly or through freely elected representatives.
Capitalism – An economic and political system characterized by a free market for goods and services and private control of production and consumption.
Socialism – An economic system in which the production and distribution of goods are controlled substantially by the government rather than by private enterprise, and in which cooperation rather than competition guides economic activity. All communists are socialists, but not all socialists are communists.
Communism – An economic and social system envisioned by the 19th Century German Karl Marx. Under communism all means of production are owned in common, rather than by individuals. A single authoritarian party controls both the political and economic systems.
Totalitarianism – A political system in which the state holds total authority over the society and seeks to control all aspects of public and private life whenever necessary.
Dictator – A person exercising absolute power, especially a ruler who has absolute, unrestricted control in a government without hereditary succession. A person who authoritatively prescribes conduct, usage, etc.
Tyranny – Arbitrary or unrestrained exercise of power; despotic abuse of authority.
Marxism – The system of economic and political thought developed by Karl Marx, especially the doctrine that the state throughout history has been a device for the exploitation of the masses by a dominant class, that class struggle has been the main agency of historical change, and that the capitalist system, containing from the first the seeds of its own decay, will inevitably, after the period of the dictatorship of the proletariat, be superseded by a socialist order and a classless society.
Fascism – A government system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism. (Consider the phone taps on AP & FoxNews and harassment by IRS of Obama’s “enemies”)
