Obama in my local newspaper. This letter was published in my local newspaper today:
"Sen. Barack Obama has collected large donations for his run for president. However, given his Muslim background, has anyone checked to see if one of his main contributors is Osama bin Laden? When pictures showed Obama with his hands at his side during the national anthem, this was disturbing to me...."
But yesterday, another letter said this:
"I realized, the record number of people who came out to put a slap down on Hillary, had, in fact, advanced the cause of Marxism in the being of Obama. Oh, he was shrewd, ever so carefully hiding the creed of the Communist Manifesto, "from each according to his ability, to each according to his need" with the code words "that out of many we are one ... a shared sacrifice and shared prosperity." A less astute listener probably missed the parallel, so I felt compelled to expose this sleight of hand. Obama apparently doesn't understand that coerced self-sacrifice causes society to self-destruct, and that is exactly what he is advocating. Socialism always fails; capitalism (without government interference) always succeeds."
