    Watching what President Barack Obama is doing with the country makes me think of Venezuela under Chavez. Is it any wonder they're buddies? They certainly have enough commonalities that many people see the two together in heart, mind, and action:

    But times have changed and so have strategies. Saul Alinsky, radical of the '60s, author of "Rules for Radicals" who was all about taking power, suggested that you target your opposition, make it personal and destroy him. Recent decades have seen this play out in the demonization and ruination of a host of people. They weren't killed, but they were in essence destroyed so that no one in the mainstream culture would ever again listen to or heed their advice. Richard Nixon ... Oliver North ... Clarence Thomas ... Dick Cheney ... Tom DeLay ... George W. Bush ... Sarah Palin. Have Americans stopped to think that these destroyed people are all on the political right? Have they noticed that Bill Clinton and Ted Kennedy and Barney Frank still walk among us, exercising influence, with whatever reputations they have in tact?

    Yes, times have changed. Under the careful guidance of Fidel Castro, the driving force behind the Sao Paulo Forum, a new method of gaining power has emerged:
    1) Get elected through the system,(SOROS)
    2) change the constitution, (PELOSI)
    3) corrupt the elections (ACORN)
    4) nationalize banks and industry (CONGRESS)
    5) punish your opposition. (RAHM)

    A leader needs to make just a few bold moves in each category so that all will get the message. According to Alejandro Esclusa, the former Venezuelan presidential candidate who has been tried on several occasions for his opposition to Hugo Chavez, this insidious method of instilling a totalitarian regime is now working in 17 Latin American countries.

    "It would seem that the changes that started in Venezuela in the last decade of the 20th century have begun to reach North America," Hugo Chavez said just last week even as he was jailing opposition mayors in at least three cities.

    And President Obama has a 90% approval rating with Democrats. The statist impulse is strong on the other side. And they don't mind that the President of ostensibly all the people demonizes those who go to Tea Parties. Hugo Chavez doesn't like opposition either.

    First, they came for speech, then they came for banks, then they came for the auto industry, then they came for the internet, now they come for health care. And before it's all over, the state owns you. Every part of your existence is subsumed to the state.

    This guy is worse than chavez. chavez did not take over the auto industry, the banking industry, the insurance industry and the health care industry.
    He reminds me of Putin without balls.

    "At what point shall we expect the approach of danger? By what means shall we fortify against it? Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step the Ocean, and crush us at a blow? Never!

    All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Buonaparte for a commander, could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years. At what point, then, is the approach of danger to be expected?

    I answer, if it ever reach us it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide."
    ~Abraham Lincoln, Address Before the Young Men's Lyceum of Springfield, Illinois (January 27, 1838)

    Until you get it through your head that the reputg W/Cheney/McCoward/neocon cabal is every bit as much a part of the coup as obama/pelosi and that quite likely THESE people are Shills for the real tyrants you are mere sheep bleating to the slaughter.

    What's the matter with the chicken-shit Congress critters; they are a bunch of cowards that are now going into hiding. 70% are happy with their health care and do not want a single payer system. Dumb ass liberals like you and your cronies need to get that thru your thick skulls.
