Fading Fast- America's Individual Economic Freedom

I recently read a short article with embedded video.  The complete post can be read at Liberty Scout.

President Obama: “I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money”

While campaigning for the Democrat’s “fat cat”-approved financial reform plan, President Obama expressed that, “at a certain point you’ve made enough money.” Really? At what point does a man who made $5.5 million last year think someone has made enough money? Furthermore, who’s responsibility is it to tell anyone they have made enough money? The government? Oh wait, that would be socialism.

Remember! If you “spread the wealth around” it’s good for everyone!

When I saw this, it reminded me of an article I had read on Orrin Woodward's Leadership Blog.  I had to search for it but I did find it.  Orrin's article began with this important observation:
No economic system has been proven more wrong than Karl Marx and his communist revolution.  With this being said, no system that has failed so miserably has so many of its ideas still in practice.  It is like a person who realizes that drinking a whole cup of poison will kill him, but determines that half a cup a poison will help him.  The communist spent millions of dollars and years of propaganda to inject their poison into the thinking of Americans.  It is now a documented fact that the communist worked to control the media and change the American values to communist positions.  I would like to take you back to the recognized father of modern communism, Karl Marx.  I believe economic understanding is one of the keys for the future of America.  With so much misinformation out there, I run the risk of being labeled by many sincere people who do not fully understand what is at stake.

America was founded on strong free enterprise and rule of law principles.  How few voters understand this and freely buy into communist positions ought to concern of all us.  The whole goal of this blog is to generate discussion and a better understanding of what the media war is about.  I am not offended in the least if you disagree with our discussion.  All I ask is we think together in an effort to learn truth.  Here is an article on the 10 Planks of the Communist Manifesto.  Do you recognize some of these originally radical ideas as now mainstream American thought?   The ideologies of free enterprise and communism are polar opposites on their view of man, God, and government.  Please read carefully and think about the 10 Planks.  Does it concern anyone else that America would adopt so many principles from a communist system that is defunct, an abject failure, and Godless from an atheist economist Karl Marx?  Why have so many of us been taught these principles as the American way of life?  Some will say I am paranoid, but are we paranoid if they really are after us?  Here is the linked article with the 10 Planks of the Communist Manifesto.

It really is frightening how 'uneducated' we Americans are regarding the freedoms and liberties we enjoy in this unique country and the current attacks threatening to undermine the very freedoms we profess to cherish.  I encourage you to visit and read the entire article.  There are many enlightening articles with important principles we all should know on Orrin Woodward Leadership Team.

Understanding our own American history and how our country achieved the liberties of a free society is the only way to preserve the freedoms we enjoy.   Every significant issue we face today can ultimately be traced back to the of erosion of the United States Constitution.
