  • Because people like to portray him as a communist, or socialist. Marxism is very similar. Look it up. I don't think he is a marxist. I'm one of the few here on CM that LOVES obama.

  • In America,"Everyone is equal" means that every person is allowed the opportunity to work for success. For instance, every college student is allowed into the college classes (they aren't denied entrance because of their gender, race or religion) and has the opportunity to study & take the tests, etc. BUT - a Marxist believes that every student should be guaranteed a passing grade (the OUTCOME) just for showing up in class, whereas a conservative believes that the student's MERIT must determine the student's grade.

    Same with property: everyone is guaranteed no closed doors from their gender, race or religion in getting an opportunity, but a Marxist wants to ALSO guarantee equal OUTCOMES.

    The Marxist believes everything belongs to everyone, and the way to enforce this is for the State (ruled by himself, of course) to be the equalizer. So a Marxist takes people's property w/o their consent to give to otherswhom he chooses

  • I think it is pretty easy to find a correleation between Obama's policies, speeches, and actions with Marxism. Even the Stimulus/Bailouts reak of Marxist "state" controlled industry, government jobs, and obsessive financial support for unions.
    Obama’s studied and surrounded himself with those who embrace Marxist views.From his life long mentor and father figure in Hawaii, Frank Marshall Davis, a long time member of the Communist Party. To his 20 year relationship (even referencing him to family) Rev. Jeremiah Wright, an ardent and vocal advocate of Black Liberation Theology, a movement that has origins planted firmly in Marxism.
