Quote of the Day

"We see on the theater of the world a certain number of scenes which succeed each other in endless repetition: where we see the same faults followed regularly by the same misfortunes, we may reasonably think that if we could have known the first we might have avoided the others. The past should enlighten us on the future: knowledge of history is no more than an anticipated experience."
- Charles Pinot Duclos

This quote comes to mind everytime I talk to someone who voted for Obama and is now regretting it. It also comes to mind when people try telling me that history does not matter and the things I see happening now can't happen here. You know, things like having a communist advising the president and helping him implement policy. Obama is taking us towards Marxism. He told us during the campaign exactly what he wanted to do, but no one believed him. We all just figured he was playing to his base. History show us that Marxism leads to fascism, communism, or some other form of totalitarianism. We are not immune to history. Just because we are arrogant and naive Americans it does not insulate us from the catastrophe of a failed ideology. Obama is a Marxist and he is pretty open about it. He won't call it that, but his ideology was shaped by Marxists, he is being advised by Marxists, and he admits in his autobiographies that he was surrounded by such radical revolutionaries during his formative years. Read up on your history people. Obama's playbook is straight from the 1930s. A good place to start is the book 'Rules for Radicals' by Saul Alinsky, that is Obama's Bible.
