Did Obama Affirm His Collectivist Mentality In His Inaugural Speech? A Reflection of His Marxist Foundations?- Part Two

Before reviewing the statements made in Obama’s inaugural speech and comparing them to the concepts covered in Part One, I would like to clarify one other point. A careful reading of the Bill of Rights affirms the individualist concept. However, it is probably most clearly expressed in an often overlooked amendment- the 9th.

The 9th amendment reads:

“The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”

In other words, even though this Bill of Rights spells out certain or some of the rights of the people, it does not mean that the government owns any others. The people’s rights are their own and government may not claim them but only those powers delegated to them through the Constitution. By the way, in our Constitution only the people have rights. The government has powers. The rights of the people already exist. The powers of the government are delegated through the consent of the people.

Please take a moment and view the following video before reviewing the Obama speech:

Keep in mind the point made in the video above the dictators always claim to represent the greater good for the greater number when in fact they are their support organization actually comprise less than 1% of the population. (See the video The Tiny Dot in my post “The Most Dangerous Superstition.) Now, let’s look at some of the statements Obama made during his inaugural speech. Then based on what you now know decide where you think he falls on the Collectivism vs. Individualism scale of balance:

On Federal Education Spending: “No single person can train all the math and science teachers we’ll need to equip our children for the future, or build the roads and networks and research labs that will bring new jobs and businesses to our shores. Now, more than ever, we must do these things together, as one nation, and one people.”

Collectivist or Individualist?

On Federal Infrastructure Spending:Together, we determined that a modern economy requires railroads and highways to speed travel and commerce; schools and colleges to train our workers.”

Collectivist or Individualist?

On Federal Social Welfare Spending:Together, we resolved that a great nation must care for the vulnerable, and protect its people from life’s worst hazards and misfortune.”

Collectivist or Individualist?

On Federal Spending: “We reject the belief that America must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future,”

Collectivist or Individualist?

Now, of course, all of this means more deficit spending at a time we can ill afford it. However, note the assumption that he speaks for the rest of us. Is this the mentality of a collectivist or an individualist? You decide. I think a 63% rise in the Federal deficit or over $6 Trillion dollars kind of hints at the answer.
