Please ask Delegate Scott Lingamfelter not to listen to President Barack Obama too often. Too much of that kind of heartburn is not good for anyone.

Here is Lingamfelter’s latest email.

Oh really?

Some folks get pretty upset when those of us who are conservative say that President Obama is a socialist. Well, here’s what he actually said this week at a fundraiser at the University of Vermont.

“You know, each of us is only here because somebody somewhere felt responsibility, yes to their families, but also to their fellow citizens. Also to our country’s future. That’s the American story. The American story is not just about what we do on our own. Yes, we’re rugged individualists, we expect personally responsibility and everybody out there has got to work hard and carry their weight,” President Obama said at a fundraiser with college students at the University of Vermont.

“We also have always understood that we wouldn’t win the race for new jobs and businesses, and middle class security if we were just applying some ‘you’re on your own economics,'” Obama said.

It’s been tried in our history and it hasn’t worked,” Obama said. “It didn’t work when we tried it in the decade before the Great Depression. It didn’t work when we tried it in the last decade. We just tried this. What they’re peddling has been tried — it did not work!”

When you read this carefully you see that sure enough, the President throws a bone to those who believe in hard work, personal responsibility and rugged individualism. But as you read on, you will see his socialist leanings creep in. First he presumes that what he said in the first paragraph really isn’t true, that getting out there on your own just won’t work. If that were not insulting enough to millions of small businesses across America that do just that, he concludes with the assertion that it “hasn’t” worked.

Obama’s assertion would be laughable if it were not so pathetic. Think about it. Not ever has anyone started a business without the nanny state’s help. Never have people been able to get things going without some government program. Never has anyone had a unique idea for which they risked a lot to attain. Oh really? Tell that to Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Steve Jobs, and Bill Gates.

This President has no idea how economies work. For him, the socialist approach is the answer. Let the government step in. We tried that in the Great Depression but it was WW II, not the “New Deal” which brought the economy back. And it wasn’t government programs and high taxes that created the longest continuous economic growth in modern history. It was the low tax polices of Ronald Reagan. Sorry Mr. President, but your reading of history is make believe.

Jobs will return, folks, when he loses his.

Sic Semper Tyrannis

Here is the full text of our president’s speech. And, yes, he is a socialist.  Moreover, he wants to rewrite history and convince you that our best presidents were socialists.

What is worse is that Obama is a decisive force in American politics. Instead of protecting our rights and working for societal calm  — letting each of us assume authority and responsibility for how we run our own lives,  Obama seeks to pit us against each. When we could grow our economy and make everyone better off, Obama would rather wreck our country, just so long as he can control who gets whatever scraps are left.

Here we may reign secure, and in my choyce
To reign is worth ambition though in Hell:
Better to reign in Hell, then serve in Heav’n.

So Satan spoke in Paradise Lost by John Milton.



  1. Freedom, by the way

    Obama is so in-you-face with his socialist ideals that it is astounding and frightening to me that he has as much support as he has. Have so many of our fellow citizens actually gone down the path of socialism as well? Or are they just completely zoned out? I can’t believe we even have a fight on our hands to vote him out of office.


    1. Freedom, by the way – It may seem absurd, but many Americans do not appreciate how our country is unusual (an unusual that threatens to become past tense).

      1. As parents, we have obligation to see to the education of our children. Too many generations have gone by where too many parents gave over that responsibility to politicians. Politicians have no qualifications to teach children about Christ, and they did not do so. Thus, with each generation, the Christian foundation of this nation has become more weathered and eroded.

      2. In addition to not teaching Christianity, our public schools have not taught civics. So unlike the generations that built this nation, the current generation does not understand how our political system works or how they are suppose to participate. They just think it is somebody else’s responsibility.

      3. We have grown an establishment that feeds off of our government. Many large collectives (corporations, unions, nonprofits, and so forth) use public dollars and political influence to maintain their market position and income. We call the people who run these organizations the Establishment, and the Establishment runs the news media. So the storyline we get from the news media tells us what the Establishment wants us to hear. The Establishment wants the status quo. The Establishment does not want a constitutional republic.


  2. Tom

    What better proof than Obama that education has always been way too important to leave in the hands of the state. There is no quicker way to turn a constitutional republic into a collective than to willfully place your children in the hands of the public indoctrination camps. The years go by and all of a sudden you wake up and the likes of Obama is in power. So, who is really to blame–you tell me?
