GUEST EDITORIAL OBAMA GOAL MARXISM FOR AMERICA by Edward P. Shallow In 2009 I wrote that America was on a course to European Welfare State. In the article I asked, how many Maoists in the White House does it take to convince the American people that we are on a transition from our Democratic Republic to one of a Communist state? The 35 czars comrade Obama has surrounded himself with are out of the mold of the former emperors of Russia, all seeking great or unlim- ited power over freedom loving American citizens. They want a complete reversal of the free enterprise sys- tem that has made America the envy of the world. In a later article I indicated that the man President Obama most admired in history was Karl Marx, father of Communism. Writing in the Washington Times, June 21, 2012, Jeffrey Kuhner authored Obama's Socialist Designs. Kuhner was unbending in his assessment of how Obama is transforming America. I quote in part. President Obama is gradually transforming America into socialist authoritarian state. This is the real mean- ing of his recent decision to grant backdoor amnesty to young illegal immigrants. Mr. Obama is behaving like a Latin America strongman, who asserts arbitrary power and ignores the rule of law. He is assaulting the very pillars of our constitutional republic. The administration announced that it will stop deporting young illegal aliens. The shift affects as many as 800,000 illegals. The order lifts the fear of deportation and grants them work permits. Obama waved his magic wand and converted the immigra- tion status of countless aliens, flipping them from illegal to legal residents. The policy change is a blatant attempt to bribe the Hispanic vote prior to the November election -- a key constituency Obama must win. Mr. Kuhner continues, Mr. Obama lacks the legal authority to grant amnesty. He is not a monarch or tyrant with unlimited discretionary authority. The constitution is clear: Congress has the sole power to craft immigration policy. (Continued on Page 15) LETTERS POLICY The Post-Gazette invites its readers to submit Letters to the Editor.
