Obama, like all Marxists, must realize that you cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. These people assume they possess the ultimate power to dictate to the world unsound finance for they have refused to even ask – Has anyone tried this before?. They cannot grasp even WHY Communism failed and have the audacity to play with our future. Consequently, we indeed remain ignorant of the past which is why we are condemned to repeat it. It is forever the same patterns over and over again.
