I Cannot Stop: More Evidence on Obama's Extreme Leftism

Here is yet more evidence from a 2001 radio interview that Obama wants the state to be socialist: to redistribute the wealth through changes in The Constitution. He doesn't want it to be a document emphasizing negative rights--what the state cannot do--but how the state can redistribute wealth. That, of course is not its original meaning: it stipulates what a representative republic according to the rule of law should be.

We know from other sources, Obama views the Constitution as a "living document." That means that lawyers and judges should deconstruct it according to their agendas. In other words, a hundred more Roe v. Wades (which generated "the right to privacy" ex nihilo)--regarding wealth, human life, and everything else.

Obama says that the civil rights movement put too much emphasis on the courts, but he still laments that the (Warren) Supreme Court was not more radical concerning the redistribution of wealth during that era. That is the essential point. He says people "on the ground" can bring redistributive change better than the courts--unless, of course, you are President. Then you can appoint revisionist, redistributionist judges to the highest court in the land.

These close associations and affiliations with William Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, et al, were not accidental, but essential to the man's character and political philosophy. They all share a very similar outlook. And, yes, it is unAmerican.

The Civil Rights Movement was not unAmerican; it helped established Constitutional rights to all Americans: red and yellow, black and white. But giving the Constitution a socialist facelift is unAmerican and deeply dangerous to our way of life.

The Obama campaign claims that what he said has no relation to his present plans. This is exceedingly unlikely. Obama's slip to Joe the Plumber was revealing indeed: "spread the wealth around"--through reinterpreting The Constitution, confiscatory taxation, class warfare, and an anti-business (translated: anti-jobs, anti-wealth-creation) orientation based on resentment and envy.

These are Obama's true colors. Wake up and strengthen the things that remain--unless, of course, you want the US to become a European-style socialist state.

John McCain and Sarah Palin do not. Vote for them on November 2, if your future depends on it, because it does.
