Obama's campaign has desecrated the American Flag as a campaign ploy. Obama has replaced the stars (which depicts a new constellation, symbolizing the union, with each individual star being a republican state) with the Obama logo. The symbolism of the Obama flag, is that Obama unifies the united states.
http://www.ijreview.com...

Obama is a fascist. At the Democratic National Convention Clinton repetitively mentioned that Obama stood for collectivism, that Democrats stood for strength through unity, rather than individualism. Now the Obama administration is trying to propagandate the idea that Obama is the one that unites the states.

Odds are its the first one

Obama is a fascist. At the Democratic National Convention Clinton repetitively mentioned that Obama stood for collectivism, that Democrats stood for strength through unity, rather than individualism.

So one persons opinion of what he thinks the party stands for counts as completely accurate evidence that any other member of the same party who didnt say those remarks are still completely fascist? Thats like me saying that since Romney once said that he likes firing people I use that statement to conclude that all Republicans are a**holes. (Which is complete crap)

Now the Obama administration is trying to propagandate the idea that Obama is the one that unites the states.

Its a drawing dude chill the f*ck out. Romney hung a Cayman Islands flag from his yacht once but that doesnt mean we can conclude he is going to sell out the United States to foreign governments.

Why is universal healthcare not a political issue? Oh wait. That's completely irrelevant to the OP. Nevermind.

Everything outside the actual policies that would be implemented by a president has no place in intellectual conversations about the candidates. C'mon. Grow up.

Why you gotta pick on Obama. You pretend that the Right isn't equally fascist.

You are still trapped and enslaved by the false Left Right paradigm.

Funny thing is that the Republicans want to make it illegal to burn an american flag, but they want to burn Obama. When I see such petty politics being played out with such fevered pitch I can seriously imagine 25% of Republicans would really throw a can of gas on the guy and light a match if they knew they would get away with it.

I don't even like the guy.

Its a drawing dude chill the f*ck out. Romney hung a Cayman Islands flag from his yacht once but that doesnt mean we can conclude he is going to sell out the United States to foreign governments.

For future reference:

1. When Romney said he liked firing people, he was referring to the ability to take his business elsewhere, specifically health insurance providers. There is nothing wrong with the sentiment, except the way he said it. Who wants to keep paying a company for crappy service when they can "fire" them and go elsewhere?

2. The Cayman Island flag was not flown on Romney's yacht. It was a Romney event hosted by someone else; it was that person's yacht.

I just wanted to clarify. They were immaterial to your overall point, but I feel these statements should be corrected, in case anyone didn't know.

Lol, why is it so popular to claim that one dislikes Obama?

I see nothing to dislike about the guy. He does his job, and he doesn't do it embarrassingly, and that's already two steps ahead of many heralded presidents of administrations past.

Y'all just a bunch of haters.

Mmmmmmm, drone strikes, for one. Under Obama, there are no longer such things as "civilian casualities" among men of "combat age". As far as he's concerned, any man who's old enough to fight is an enemy and a potential target for a drone strike.

This is incorrect. If the flag at the Obama concerts has his campaign logo where the stars should be - then that is not an American flag, which has stars where the stars should be.

So nothing has been desecrated. You will be relieved, and I am glad to have been the one to reassure you.

Obama is a fascist.

There are necessary conditions that must be met before one may be called a fascist. I have included two of these in the following points:

1. A person must self-identify as a fascist: Otherwise, no matter how similar, the person is not a proponent of fascism. Similarly, despite President Obama's many similarities with Dwight D Eisenhower, he is not a Republican. Because he has not self-identified as a Republican. Can he secretly be a fascist? No. Whatever his ideology may be called by hyperbolic thumbsuckers, he is closer to Ike than he is to Mussolini.

2. He does not fit the definition of Fascist: In order to fit this description, he would have to support a "merging of the corporations and the state." Who says? Mussolini.
http://www.brainyquote.com...

3. There are real fascists out there. There are also Nazis, real ones. The guys with the swastika tattoos and the shaved heads - do they support Obama? No.

Drones and the use thereof are controlled by several legislators throughout the world. Politically speaking, it probably has the least to do with Barack Obama. In terms of how they're used in this country, Congress writes the bills; Obama only passes them.

http://thehill.com...

I understand that part of his purpose is to act as the federal scapegoat, but for those of us who are informed, we should place focus where it's due. Congress writes laws, the President and his cabinet enforces them, and the courts interpret them.

No no no. His foreign policy cabinet actually carries out the initiatives set out by bills written by congress.

One could, perhaps, credit them for his passing those bills...

This is why are country is so divided. Such an unwillingness to work together. Political parties have become nothing more than political gangs battling for territory. If Obama wins Romney isn't going to cooperate with him and vise versa. Here we have a post dedicated to bashing the president of the united states. The majority of Americans voted for him but still so much separation. Bipartisanship is a myth. It will never exist.ed

I was using hyperbole, but anyway, when you start looking at things realistically it's hard to ever actually pin something directly on the president. We all judge presidents by what happens under their watch. And in my opinion, the fact that he allowed something like that to become law is more than enough to make me dislike him. Along with Guantanamo Bay remaining open and such.

It's 9 stripes. The stamp act congress had only 9 colonies attending. The rebellious stripes originally had 9 stripes representing the 9 colonies to attend the stamp act congress. Those 9 stripes became 13 under the second continental congress. In 1794 the flag had 15 stripes, and in 1818 it reverted back to 13.
The stripes represent the autonomy, and the union jack represents the union of the states.

Obama is a fascist.

There are necessary conditions that must be met before one may be called a fascist. I have included two of these in the following points:

1. A person must self-identify as a fascist: Otherwise, no matter how similar, the person is not a proponent of fascism. Similarly, despite President Obama's many similarities with Dwight D Eisenhower, he is not a Republican. Because he has not self-identified as a Republican. Can he secretly be a fascist? No. Whatever his ideology may be called by hyperbolic thumbsuckers, he is closer to Ike than he is to Mussolini.

So if someone has a shrine to Mussolini in his closet, has a swastika tattooed on his dong, and openly praises the axis of evil; he is not an advocate of fascism, if he is registered as a libertarian? That's BS! Communism was outlawed in the US, but there are still communists in America.
If the policies you advocate match 100% of the policies fascist advocate, but you choose to cal yourself a libertarian; it does not make you a libertarian. A wolf dressed as a sheep is still a wolf.

2. He does not fit the definition of Fascist: In order to fit this description, he would have to support a "merging of the corporations and the state." Who says? Mussolini.

3. There are real fascists out there. There are also Nazis, real ones. The guys with the swastika tattoos and the shaved heads - do they support Obama? No.

Actually the American Nazi Party endorsed Obama's 2008 Campaign. Rocky Suhayda, the leader of the Nazi party said, "White people are faced with either a negro or a total nutter who happens to have a pale face, personally, I"d prefer the negro. National Socialists are not mindless haters. Here, I see a white man, who is almost dead, who declares he wants to fight endless wars around the globe to make the world safe for Judeo-capitalist exploitation...basically a continuation of the last eight years of Emperor Bush. Then, we have a black man, who loves his own kind, belongs to a Black-Nationalist religion, is married to a black women"when usually negroes who have "made it" immediately land a white spouse as a kind of prize"that"s the kind of negro that I can respect."

The American Nazi Party also endorsed Occupy Wall St.
