    I would certainly hope Ron Paul would be able to win the election; America doesn't need another 'neo-conservative' to be President, like Bush-Cheney, or Romney, Santorum, Gingrich, or anyother Rockefeller Republican (which is what we have had since 1988)>

    There is nothing wrong with the first picture.
    There are 3 acceptable ways to stand during the national anthem.
    1. Stand still, with your arms by your side.
    2. Place your hand on your heart, or if you are wearing a hat, removing the hat and placing it over your heart (Women only have to do this if their hat is a baseball cap)
    3. Saluting the flag. This is generally reserved for those in the military. It is uncommon for someone else to do this, as it can be construed as mocking (depending on how it is done).

    Actually, I am not 100% certain, but I think standing with your hands to your side is for veterans, and the problem is that obama's hands are over his... you know.

    Top 7 Marxist Communist Policies Being Implemented By Obama Today

    Throughout history Communist leaders have seized power by promoting themselves as populists, and often completely hiding their own ideology. Indeed in a poll taken after Communist Hugo Chavez' first election victory in Venezuela, only 3% of the electors believed Chavez to be a Socialist, let alone a Communist. Currently 32% of Americans believe Obama to be a Socialist.

    The initial stages of Communization of a country invariably begin with seven basic steps:

    Seizing Control Over The Free Flow Of The Nation's Money

    Obama has stated that he wants to convert the stock the US government now owns in the nation's banks from preferred stock, which is the case currently, to common stock. This modification in type of stock may seem irrelevant at first glance, but under further analysis it is the single greatest communist policy the US government has ever adopted: It means that the federal government will control all of the currently publicly traded major banks and financial institutions in the nation which are currently in the hands of individual shareholders.

    Seizing Control Over The Free Flow Of The Nation's Money

    Obama has stated that he wants to convert the stock the US government now owns in the nation's banks from preferred stock, which is the case currently, to common stock. This modification in type of stock may seem irrelevant at first glance, but under further analysis it is the single greatest communist policy the US government has ever adopted: It means that the federal government will control all of the currently publicly traded major banks and financial institutions in the nation which are currently in the hands of individual shareholders. Not only will the current shareholders' rights be trampled, but the control of the nation's flow of money is the first keystone of communism.

    Stripping Capitalists Of Their Assets

    According to US bankruptcy code, secured creditors such as the ones who have outstanding debt against Chrysler and GM, have to be paid before unsecured creditors. That is the law. Obama has ignored this law, and seized the vast majority (89% in GM's case) of all "asset value" of the automakers and taken direct control or given it away for free to the unions. Karl Marx's theses were all based on the workers owning the means of production, and thus communism takes hold in America.

    Changing The Structures Of Government To Suit

    Obama has given the GOP until October to approve his health care plan which many experts have shown, would be as socialized as Cuba's. If the Republican Party does not meet his demands, the Democratic Party will simply change the very rules of the United States Senate to pass their legislation through simple majority, instead of the 60% which has been required by the Senate through history. Changing legislation to suit the leader is another common tactic of communist leaders from Chavez to Castro.

    Taking Advantage Of A Crisis To Impose Communism

    Obama's Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel published a book entitled The Plan which would require (yes, require) young Americans regardless of their political stripe to serve in a direct copy of Hugo Chavez' red-beret local militias. The Plan also promotes massive taxpayer funded programs as universally free university tuition and health care as well as a tax reform to ensure that the middle and upper classes are crushed by the enormous new government expenditures. Obama has already admitted such a "soak anyone making over $250,000/year" punitive tax policy. Emanuel is famous for his quote "you never want a serious crisis to go to waste…(it’s) an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before," which is the prototypical process whereby communists seize power, witness Lenin, Mao, Castro, Tito, et al.

    Controlling Higher Education

    Obama has already launched legislation to remove private lenders from student loans which would now all be provided by the federal government directly, so that it could choose in a totalitarian manner who receives the loans and who doesn't. Many educational institutions are up in arms over this legislation as it essentially shifts admissions policy from the colleges and universities to the federal government. Control of higher education as in Obama's Pell Grant entitlement is an universal characteristic of communism to ensure that the young are properly ideologically indoctrinated.

    Punishing Residential Property Owners

    Obama's enormous mortgage bailout legislation is little more than a full blown entitlement program. The plan forces the 92 percent of responsible home owners to heavily subsidize the irresponsible "ARM-ATM" mortgage holders who didn't read their ARM mortgages and used their home equity like ATMs. These taxes would be so overwhelming that many of the "responsible" majority of mortgage holders could lose their homes. The punishment leading to the elimination of property owners in favor of the state is a fundamental tenet of Marxism, as Karl wrote "the middle-class owner of property: This person must indeed, be swept out of the way, and made impossible."

    Demolishing The Economy To Replace It With State Control

    Obama has:

    Handicapped American multinationals by denying them tax deferral, placing them at an enormous competitive disadvantage against corporations based anywhere else.
    Launched entitlement programs which punish innovation and dry up funds for entrepreneurial start ups.
    Stopped the Treasury from implementing any real recovery plans, discouraging private capital flow into the financial sector.
    Stated "we have to spread the wealth around, we have to redistribute the wealth of this country through taxation," which is a paraphrasing of Marx's "from each according to his ability, to each according to his need."
    Declared a "War On Business" as shown by his legislation that pharmaceutical corporations pay high rebate fees to Medicaid and promoting the importation of foreign drugs which could include low potency or outright counterfeit drugs into the nation. The financial outlook for US pharmaceutical companies has been decimated.
    Placed nearly two thirds of a trillion dollars into a health reform reserve fund, which is the tip of the iceberg in the expectations of the cost of fully socialized medicine in America. USA Today has stated that every household in the United States would be on the hook for over half a million dollars.
    All of these policies represent time-honored Communist policies specifically designed to devastate the free market economy as well as impoverish and punish the upper and middle classes leading to their elimination so that the Communist "Dictatorship Of The Proletariat" can be introduced. It is important to note that in each and every historical instance Communism has been introduced into democratic countries and they were all swiftly changed to totalitarian dictatorships of a single leader benefiting from a "Cult Of Personality."

    Policies virtually identical to these were implemented by:

    Vladimir Ilyich Lenin in 1917 Russia
    Josip Broz Tito in 1945 Yugoslavia
    Mao Zedong (Tse-tung) in 1949 China
    Fidel Castro in 1959 Cuba
    Hugo Chavez in 1999 Venezuela

    and now they are being implemented by

    Barack Hussein Obama in 2009 United States of America.

    That is why Bloomberg.com has called Obama a "Manchurian Candidate" set to destroy the US economy once elected.

    I don't believe he is a Communist. I just think he is on the more liberal side of the Democratic party.
    I believe this mostly because while he has done some of those things, to a minor extent, his actions look nothing like Communist Russia or China.

    Santorum is not a Democrat. He is a a real Conservative but a lot of the establishment GOP hardliners will have to deal with him sooner or later. The Evangelical TEA Party really favors this person. If he had not been defeated by Casey in 2006 i think he could be V-P this time. Santorum also gave a lot of earmarks the 12 years he was in the Senate also. Politics is very risky isn;t it ? Damned if you do and damned if you don;t.

    progcon

    I see now what our biggest problem is - people don't take the time to investigate the actions of their candidate by comparison to the words they speak. Are you aware that Santorum was a darling of PETA and actually Sponsored the "Pet Animal Welfare Statute" of 2005?

    http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin...

    Sound very conservative to you?

    And this question asks who can beat Obama. The polls consistently suggest that Santorum cannot.

    Maybe it's time for cons to reevaluate what conservatism is.

    He sponsored the Pet Animal Welfare Statute of 2005 for Pete's sake. Since when is pet WELFARE are trait of limited govt. Since when is it a tenet of Conservatism? Since when is it even Constitutional?

    Cons crack me up. They rail against Cass Sunstein for seeking a Bill of Rights for animals - then they call Santorum the only "true conservative" when he introduced the equivalent to that in the form of Animal welfare. As I said - maybe it's time for conservatives to reevaluate what Conservatism actually is.
