What is Obama?

People are trying to categorize Obama. Is a socialist? Is he a fascist? Is he a statist?

The one thing everyone agrees with is that he is not a capitalist. He hates freedom and fights it at every turn. Not a day goes by when he doesn't infringe freedom in one way or another.

Socialism is a social system where the state owns all the property. To own property means to direct its use and disposal.

Capitalism is a social system where all the property is privately owned - which is to say that the means of production are owned by the individuals, not the state.

Fascism is a social system where the individuals possess the title, but the property's use and disposal is regulated and directed by the state. The net effect of fascism is that individuals possesses the liability for the property but not the benefits as those are directed/controlled by the state.

Statism is a social system where the state dominates life. It possesses all the liberties and the individual possesses none. Both socialism and fascism are statist systems. Capitalism is individualist, and not statist, since it is grounded in the individual and his rights.

Obama damns business, but he is completely in bed with business in that he's overtly made GM, Chrysler, the banks, and now the Medical system all parts of the government. They possess a form that looks like business, but they are actually government bureaucracies in another form. This makes Obama a fascist.

Fascism doesn't have to look like Hitler. Mussolini was a fascist. All progressives are fascists. They intend to create a so-called partnership of business and government. Since the government possesses the guns, it calls the shots and all the decisions of the business are based on politics, not supply and demand. The major failure of socialist and fascist systems is that they lose their bearings and become unable to direct the flow of goods for their best use. The politicians ultimately get so self-serving and paranoid that they direct everything for their use as they see it. The fact that they may couch those uses in terms that sound like they would benefit the country is for the purpose of selling it to the populace, not benefiting the country. This is being borne out in the Obama Administration and will get progressively worse as he carries it to new heights and as the fascism gets further entrenched.

Fascism sources corruption and so this administration is taking corruption to a new level. We need to purge ourselves of this scourge, and it is going to take some intense investigators and prosecutors to bring those who have corrupted our system to justice. Although corruption always exists in government as it does in other segments of society, to allow it to thrive as it is now thriving is to render this country to the status of a third-world country. A hallmark of the third-world is corruption with bribery as the means for getting anything done.

Capitalism is a self-cleansing system. The freer it is, the more this happens. A person has to stay straight in order to compete. This discourages all kinds of unproductive behaviors and encourages productive behaviors.
