In an interview with the Associated Press, Republican Congressman from Georgia, Paul Broun, warns of the potential of Barack Obama creating a marxist dictatorship. Chief among his concerns is Obama’s desire to create a “Gestapo-like” civilian security force.
“It may sound a bit crazy and off base, but the thing is, he’s the one who proposed this national security force,” Rep. Paul Broun said of Obama in an interview Monday with The Associated Press. “I’m just trying to bring attention to the fact that we may — may not, I hope not — but we may have a problem with that type of philosophy of radical socialism or Marxism.”
Broun cited a July speech by Obama that has circulated on the Internet in which the then-Democratic presidential candidate called for a civilian force to take some of the national security burden off the military.
“That’s exactly what Hitler did in Nazi Germany and it’s exactly what the Soviet Union did,” Broun said. “When he’s proposing to have a national security force that’s answering to him, that is as strong as the U.S. military, he’s showing me signs of being Marxist.”
A civilian security force is a frightening proposition but there is even more to worry about. First, how much more egregious will the progressive tax code become, which is the second of the 10 planks of communism? Next, the estate or death tax, will it become impossible for the wealth to passed down for generation to generation, communist plank number three? The one thing that is the most scary is the erosion of private property rights. In light of the Kelo Supreme Court decision and heavy property taxes this basic right is in real danger.
No one can be sure of what the future holds. But given the “principles” Obama campaigned and won on, I fear the worst but hope for the best.
God Help Us!
