Here's The One Thing...
We're on the road to socialism. So if we're going down the road, let's really go for it. Comrades, good news on the Western Front — our glorious revolution of change is starting to take hold. Our fearless leader spoke out against capitalism today:
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: As part of the reforms we are announcing today, top executives at firms receiving extraordinary help from U.S. taxpayers will have their compensation capped at $500,000 — a fraction of the salaries that have been reported recently.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
Those capitalists will say that the mother country shouldn't decide anyone's salary, because they shouldn't be bailed out in the first place. But what do you expect a capitalist to say? Also, our workers are uniting to improve the life of the average worker with union card checks.
Those capitalists will say it's wrong, because secret ballots are the American way. Of course they would say that! What do they know about their way of life? Cut it.
This is real. On tonight's show I'm going to just tie some of these things together. How the government is moving to nationalize banks, is setting salary caps for bailed out companies' executives, the dangers of the union card check, the move toward universal healthcare, including SCHIP to insure kids, and much more.
And you might say, "Oh that's crazy talk." But I'm going to show you how these things happening today line up with some of the goings-on in history's worst socialist, fascist countries.
These people may not be taking us on the same road, but they're using the same propaganda and tactics. Our very country is at stake when people use emergencies to quickly shove programs down our throats without any discussion. And I have a feeling it's going to be bumpy, so buckle up.
This is a show you're going to need to watch start to finish. But don't be overwhelmed, because there is a way out, which I'll explain at the end of the program.
