Clowns to the Left of Me, Jokers to the Right -- No... Really!

I had to comment on a story from WND that got me thinking this: are the Democrats crazy! Obviously this question can be asked of both parties from time to time, but this constant flow of info on a Democrat that is running for the highest office in the land and the choices he has made in regards to whom he surrounds himself with and his apparent love for socialism (this last defect I would apply to Hillary as well... she just doesn’t have a theology for such beliefs – here I am speaking about Liberation Theology – to support her secularist ideals) is bewildering!!!

At any rate, these are the few items that caught my eye:

When Barack Obama decided to enter politics in 1995, he saw it as a means to advance his true calling – mobilizing "collective action" to build "collective institutions" – and disparaged the "right wing" ideal of fostering reform through personal initiative as the "old individualistic bootstrap myth."

The Dec. 8, 1995, interview by the Chicago Reader came shortly after his participation in Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan's "Million Man March" in Washington, D.C., which Obama said reinforced his reason for becoming a politician.

"What I saw was a powerful demonstration of an impulse and need for African-American men to come together to recognize each other and affirm our rightful place in the society," he said in the interview article, titled, "What makes Obama run?"

So socialism has inspired him? Maybe Lenin will come to him in a vision and support him like Jane “Hanoi” Fonda, Kerry, Carter, Father Pfleger, and other well known socialists/liberation theologists.

The Democratic senator's controversial pastor and spiritual mentor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr., traveled with Farrakhan to Libya in 1984 to meet with dictator Moammar Gadhafi. Last year, Wright's Trumpet Newsmagazine gave Farrakhan the Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. Trumpeter Award, because the Nation of Islam leader "truly epitomized greatness."

His pastor visited Libya with Farrakhan to meet Moammar Gadhafi!!?? A book that seems almost too good to plug right now is by Mona Charin:
