I am a Muslim, a Christian, a Jew and a Buddhist too. If you don't like it, then this place is not for you, but as long as you don't force your beliefs on anyone, you're welcome to join in, it doesn't matter if you're a liberal, a republican or just simply you.
Well, look at him. Have you ever seen
him in action like this before?
Ok so help me out here please, I'm just a simple immigrant (with no
voting rights), trying to understand our Mr president.
So here's what I'm thinking, here he is going into intricate detail explaining "capitalism" and why
it must be destroyed. Then he finishes off basically by saying that he can't do it
alone, he's going to need "leaders in both parties" to resist these capitalist thugs he's speaking of.
But then I'm thinking, aren't these leaders in the "other" party typically regarded as
So if he doesn't like American capitalist type of government, then what type of
government does he actually prefer?
I get the impression he doesn't completely hate capitalism either, only the
parts of capitalism that are in conflict with social reform.
And what does social reform mean? I know what it
means, but I'm not exactly sure what it means to Mr. Obama.
We've already heard him boast countless times, about fixing the economy
with his Recovery Act and don't forget how many times he told us about his "
historic health care reforms" too. Sounds like socioeconomic reform in progress, yes, but we still have to wait and see how it all plays out...give or take four or more years at least.
And who exactly gets to pay for those things?
Well, Capitalists of course, if you
paid attention to his recent Fiscal Budget that is.
Hey, like I said before, I'm just a simple immigrant trying to understand
One thing is clear to me though, President Obama certainly does not sound
like a typical Social Democrat to me. I get Social Democrats, they keep things
simple, they watch out for government overspending, they fight for the people and social
order, they allow individual freedoms and provide welfare, they promote free
enterprise and free market economy...they do all of these things and much more, maybe even too much,
but not exactly for free.
Heavy taxation at every corner and for everything
that you do you're going to have to run to City Hall for a piece of paper that proves you're entitled, and that too for a nominal fee.
I know Social Democrats because I've lived with them for 17 years. No big
deal really. Like everything else in life, you just get used to it (eventually)...when it's implemented gradually.
One way or another, government is always going to remain in charge, but
it's up to the people to think and decide what they want. At least the people who
are allowed to vote, not me, I'm just a spectator for the time
