RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Barack Obama accused Republican rival John McCain on Wednesday of stooping to low tactics by labeling the Democrat a socialist. "I don't know what's next," Obama, the presidential candidate, said at an outdoor rally in North Carolina. "By the end of the week, he'll be accusing me of being a secret communist because I shared my toys in kindergarten. I shared my peanut butter and jelly sandwich."
Just for the record, sharing one's peanut butter sandwich is called altruism.
The definition of a Communist is a person who believes it is the government's responsibility to legislate economic parity for it's citizens.
As Karl Marx said, "From each, according to his ability; to each, according to his need."
This is what Obama was calling for in this interview:
The American project is based upon that the individual is a free entity who owns the work of his hands. The government is not supposed to be able to take the work of your hands away from you in an arbitrary fashion. And, anytime the government does help itself to the work of you hands, it is a clear imposition on your Liberty.
So, vote for Obama if you want the government to take your stuff, if not, vote for McCain, even if you don't like him.
All of us, every single man, woman, and child on the face of the Earth were born with the same unalienable rights; to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And, if the governments of the world can't get that through their thick skulls, then, regime change will be necessary.
"The problem is if they think they )the citizens) are not doing anything that’s wrong, they don’t get to define that. The central government does, the central government defines what is right and wrong and whether or not they target you. So, it’s not up to the individuals. Even if they think they aren't doing something wrong, if their position on something is against what the administration has, then they could easily become a target."

"An Islamic regime must be serious in every field," explained Ayatollah Khomeini. "There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humour in Islam. There is no fun in Islam."
"I want to be very, very clear, however: I understand and agree with the analysis of the problem. There is an imminent threat. It manifested itself on 9/11. It's real and grave. It is as serious a threat as Stalinism and National Socialism were. Let's not pretend it isn't." ~~~~~Bono~~~~~
