Obama knows better

Obama knows better what to do with your money than you do.

This year I had my students read The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx and Frederick Engels. Marx and Engels advocated a ten point plan to achieve a communist utopia. Some of Obama's goals are eerily similar. Consider, for example, points 2, 3, and 5 of the Manifesto.

2. A heavily progressive income tax.

3. Abolition of inheritance.

5. Centralisation [sic] of credit in the hands of the State, by
means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.

(from The Communist Manifesto and Other Revolutionary Writings, Dover Publications, p. 141)

Now read this article at Sound familiar?
