Both side seem to be going at it tooth and nail, and each comment and commercial is picked over and through for the odd miscue. Then with each come the accusations and innuendos, attacking and tearing down the other side. Even what should be a prestigious and unbiased website, FactChech.org, seems to have jumped onto the “yes, but” bandwagon. What is so upsetting to me in all the “attacks” and attempts at “destruction” it all boils down to huff and puff over fluff and stuff… no real issues, No REAL arguments are made. No…substance to any of it.
There are REAL and SERIOUS issues out there and the press is ignoring them, concentrating on parsing generalities. Take a look at the following video. This is serious stuff…
What you are seeing is a serious candidate for President of the United States of America campaigning for a Communist. Well, they call themselves “Socialists”, but that’s just so it sounds better. SOCIALIST is Political Correct speak for “COMMUNIST”. Same thing, no difference.
The candidate which Barack Obama is campaigning for is Bernie Sanders of Vermont, and, believe it or not, a Senator from that state.
Sanders, who won his seat in 2006, called Obama “one of the great leaders of the United States Senate,” … imagine that, a “socialist”, against whom we spent years and years and BILLIONS of our tax dollars trying to defeat in far away places around the world… well, what can you say. We don’t hear much about this stuff in the press, so… nobody knows, nobody cares. Accident?
According to the website Atlas Shrugs, Obama has other controversial socialist connections. He is, in fact, an associate of a Chicago-based Marxist group.
He received the endorsement of the Chicago branch of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) for an Illinois state senate seat. DSA describes itself as the largest socialist organization in the United States and the principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International. The Socialist International (SI) has what is called “consultative status” with the United Nations. In other words, it works hand-in-glove with the world body.
The United Nations connection is important and significant because an Obama bill, “The Global Poverty Act,” has just been rushed through the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, with the assistance of Democratic Senator Joe Biden, the chairman, and Republican Senator Richard Lugar. The legislation (S.2433) commits the U.S. to spending hundreds of billions of dollars more in foreign aid on the rest of the world, in order to comply with the “Millennium Goals” established by the United Nations.
Another group associated with the SI is the Party of European Socialists (PES), PES President Poul Nyrup Rasmussen reported that European socialists held a meeting “in the Democrats HQ in Washington,” met with officials of the party and Democratic members of Congress, and agreed that “PES activist groups” in various U.S. cities would start working together. “Democrats”, Howard Dean said, want to be “good citizens of the world community.”
This stuff is significant, yet you hear little to nothing about it on the news. Why? Certainly this is more important to America than some bridge to nowhere….
