If that title doesn’t get the attention of my politically active Apostolic friends, nothing will.

Frankly, I’m amazed at some of the tripe and claptrap I’ve heard from Apostolics regarding President Obama.  From the sounds of things, he’s the Anti-Christ and Satan folded into one.  The hysteria following his election left me speechless, and the continued spewing of vitriol is a wonder to listen to.

“He’s a socialist!” (Gasp!)

“He’s going to destroy America!” (Shudder!)

Have you not been paying any attention?  After being elected as one of the most inexperienced presidents in American history, he’s proven to be one of the most ineffective presidents in American history.  He has effectively divided the country and the government and apparently doesn’t know how to put Humpty Dumpty back together again.

As for socialism; wake up, my American friends.  Socialism is well established in the halls of American government and it’s not going anywhere soon.  You were a socialist country when Mr. Obama was elected.  In fact, you were a socialist country when George Bush was elected.  A particular president may engage or eliminate a social program here or there, but overall it doesn’t alter the existence of American socialism.

Trouble is, when you think of socialism you think of Marxism…red flags with hammers and sickles, the USSR is coming, and all that.  But the historical fact is that when the US adopted a graduated income tax, it took its first steps toward socialism.  When Social Security was established, it was (and is) a socialistic program.  How about unemployment insurance?  Or Medicare, Medicaid, and Food Stamps?  Socialistic, all.  And I don’t know a single American that wants to get rid of all these.

What I hear some of you saying is that President Obama’s health care legislation is the problem.  That’s the real danger to the American way of life.  That’s what’s so socialistic!  Good grief.  Socialistic?  Hardly.  Requiring by law that each American purchase their own health insurance from one of the corporate behemoths that insure America isn’t socialism at all…it’s another step toward the corporate state, a thing quite different than socialism.

And when the corporate state is fully established, believe me, you’ll long for the days of good o’ American socialism.

But that’s for another post.

    I like the post. But will add that this ‘America’ is a socialist corporate monopoly state. It is a congealing of all these idealistic properties and more. I will dare say America is no longer truly what one could even consider a country. Or, I should say, a union of countries. And in fact there are really no more countries at all, at least not as we once knew them.

    Find “The Red Amendment”.

    On your point about state mandate of medical insurance. This point should exemplify my contention…but I think we largely agree.
    Thanks for the post.
