The Cold Truth about Obama Supporters

Cold truth time. Are you ready for it? If not, click away. If so, read on.

If you support Obama, you fall into one of two categories:

The Ignorant

You love what he says. He makes you feel good. He gives you hope. You also ignore everything about his past. Your feelings for him are so strong that you simply don’t care that he’s a Marxist or that he’s friends with anti-American, anti-Israeli terrorists. You don't care that he had a anti-American, bigot pastor for 20 years. All that matters is that you feel good now.

Maybe you don’t like Bush. Maybe you just hope that things will be better with Obama. You want change, but fail to realize that change can be very bad. Either way, you simply don’t care to know about who Obama is.

The Marxists

Whether you are willing to admit it or not, you hate American capitalism. You want the "evil rich" to be punished. You love the idea of government control of the markets, of healthcare, and of the day-to-day operations of life. You think it isn’t fair that there are rich and poor. Everyone should be the same, regardless of circumstances. Collectivism is very important to you; individual achievement is very disgusting to you. You think that those who are rich are "lucky" and those who are not are "unfortunate." You think those who work hard should support those who do not.

You might even think that the Soviet Union would have worked if Reagan and Thatcher didn’t get in the way. You are attracted to the "enlightened" thinking of European socialists and dream of having their structure here. Government is your god.


There are subtle variations, but they all boil down to these two. Where do you fit?
