There is no war but class war, my friends. And if you think that making the rich pay a bit more in taxes (the deal ended up being only the top %.02 (those making more than 400k instead of 200k) Americans instead of 2%, because Obama is a conservative himself, and not the marxist socialist people like to believe, he is still bound by the powers of those who have WEALTH) will ruin the country, then I really think you should re-evaluate how our government works, which is this: The wealthy have more say than average folks like you or I.
Oh dear Lord. I just fell outta my chair. I just never realized Obama was such a conservative. WOW.
He certainly isn't a Liberal / Progressive. I'd rank him just a tiny bit left of center, nothing particularly extraordinary, probably on a par with JFK, but with less backbone. Honestly, if he was White, we wouldn't be having this debate. I see nothing particularly radical about him. Even Obamacare is basically a Republican plan modified to please Health Insurance companies, I certainly don't look upon it as socialist - I supported creating a public option for all under Medicare (a system that has proven to be more cost effective than the private health care and insurance rackets) and Obamacare definitely ain't it!
Beyond that he has carried over way too many Bush initiatives and policies for my liking and sucked up to the Financial sector way too much as well. In another alternative world, he could have been a moderate Republican (white, of course).
If we need our guns, it's going to be to stop a right wing populist from seizing power and establishing an American Theocracy, not some fantasized socialist revolution. Do you ever worry about all the reports of religious proselytizing within our armed forces? At the Service Academies? If our military ever goes along with a coup, it will be to support a right wing Christian dictatorship, not a socialist regime. That's what people need to be worried about.
