Consider Obama's remarks. i.e "share the wealth." This is communisim. He has said he wants to tax coal fired
energy production to the point where it will be bankrupt. 50% percent of the nations energy production comes from coal today. He wants national health insurance (socialism). He wants to increase death taxes so that you cannot
give your children an inheritance. Those who are creative, talented, productive, inventive and contribute the most to
society will be taxed excessivelly until their incentive is squashed. He wants to do away with the first and second ammendmants. (as did Adolph Hitler and numerous other dictators)
I grew up during WWII and heard the words of Aldoph Hitler. Since then I have listened to the words of
many "benevolent dictators" like Joseph Stalin and others. It's all too familiar.
Those who have not learned from history are doomed to repeat it.
I am too old to be worried about what our country will become and too old to argue with anyone about this but I am concerned for my children who are talented and will have to live in the world that Obama has created so I
am compelled to say what I believe.
I would think that everyone on this list would be concerned, since creativity can only flourish in a free
society. There is no incentive to excel under communism and socalism.
The pilgrams tried communism and it didn't work, the USSR tried communism and it didn't work. It has
never worked wherever it was tried. In every case, people suffered. Communist China has now figured
out how to make use of capitolistic ideas in order to prosper.
I am sorry to introduce political comments to the list, but I didn't start it. I won't reply to any further comments on this matter. At this point we are still all free to believe what we want. I wonder how much longer that will
