From Obama's victory speech, this chilling line (which drew huge cheers in Chicago)

"Americans who sent a message to the world that we have never been just a collection of individuals or a collection of red states and blue states.

We are, and always will be, the United States of America."

Get ready to give up all you hold dear for the 'greater good'. The dear leader has proclaimed it and the people have agreed - socialism is here.

The election was about whether we were going to have a slow death of gradual socialism, or a fast death via a massive dose of socialism. The voters went for the fast death.

So, that's where the government owns lots of businesses, right? That'd be horrible. They'd probably take a lot of people's money by force, and use it for counterproductive social programs and to enhance their own power. I can't imagine. Plus, socialist and communist countries tend to be agressive foreign policy wise, and sometimes downright militant.

Oh wait.

No, actually he compared himself to Lincoln's promotion of individual freedom. Didn't you actually listen to his speech? God, misinformation by numbskulls is going to be the downfall of the U.S., not socialism at this rate! Just go fucking watch the faux news, would ya?

We should all know by now that individualism is a mental illness. It's written in the DSM in about several million different words.

Read the full text and make your own conclusion. I drew mine last night when I heard him utter these collectivist statist words.

Whether or not he is referencing Lincoln, we are fucked!

From his speech:


not just collection of individuals
sacrifices
selfless
we as a people will get there.
join in the work
nation
spirit of service
spirit of sacrifice.
patriotism
responsibility,
look after each other.
one nation one people
national unity
destiny is shared
common purpose
WE ARE ONE
