The Reincarnation of Norman Mattoon Thomas

Posted in Politics, Vote Out The Bums at 5:35 pm by Administrator

Norman Mattoon Thomas (1884-1968) has been reincarnated in Barrack Hussein Obama. Obama is no more than a transparent overlay of Mr. Thomas.

How many times can it be said? “What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.” (Ecclesiastes 1:9 NIV)

Tea party citizens are beginning to open their eyes and ears! Unfortunately, the citizens and non-citizens that elected Obama’s merry band of corrupt politicians are still mesmerized. They live for Obama’s fantasy promises. A truism like “there is nothing new under the sun” has no meaning in their contrived, naive existence.

Barrack Hussein Obama and his merry band of teleprompter writers are mirroring the ideas of Norman Mattoon Thomas. The examples speak for themselves.

Norman Mattoon Thomas had superb oratorical powers and a sarcastic wit. He applied his passionate conviction to virtually every public issue.

“In front of an audience that some estimated exceeded a 1,000 people; Obama displayed the inspirational oratory skills that have made him a popular figure in the Democratic Party.

Nothing new under the sun!

Disarmament was a passionate cause for Norman Mattoon Thomas. “President Barack Obama says the United States must lead an effort to reduce and eventually to completely eradicate nuclear weapons.”

Nothing new under the sun!

Norman Mattoon Thomas opposed intervention in the internal affairs of other countries.

President Barack Obama plans to withdraw most major combat troops from Iraq by August 2010.

Nothing new under the sun!

Norman Mattoon Thomas ran for president numerous times on the Socialist Party ticket. Thomas was an outspoken pacifist. He criticized the militarization of American foreign policy and the growing power of the military in American government.

Obama is anti-military. The Pentagon is ground-zero for Obama to re-prioritize its funding. His actions compliment Thomas’s ideas.

US Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said before presenting his FY2010 budget that the event was special due to the “scope and significance of the changes”.

Obama is a harsh critic of the Iraq war. He opposed a war funding bill in 2007, when former President George W. Bush increased the tempo of military operations. Recently he stated, “What I will not do is to simply assume that more troops always result in an improved situation … There may be a point of diminishing returns.”

Thomas denounced the forced relocation and internment of Japanese-Americans during WWII. Similarly, “U.S. President Barack Obama has ordered the closure of the detention center at the American naval base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. He is also moving quickly to put his own stamp on United States foreign policy, particularly regarding the Middle East.”

Obama’s CIA head is carrying out the socialist’s pacifist philosophy. “The head of the CIA moved yesterday to formalize the new Obama administration’s break with the past in its approach to national security, when he ordered the final decommissioning of secret overseas sites where the US had held, and in some cases tortured, al-Qaida prisoners.”

As the Socialist candidate for president, Norman Mattoon Thomas saw much of his philosophy absorbed in Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal. Obama is revisiting FDR by way of Thomas.

Nothing new under the sun!

In sheer size, the economic measures announced by President Barack Obama to address “a crisis unlike we’ve ever known” are remarkable, rivaling and in many cases dwarfing the New Deal programs that Franklin D. Roosevelt famously created to battle the Great Depression.

Nothing new under the sun!

Norman Mattoon Thomas thought loyalties were necessary in life. “Most of us live by our group loyalties . . . but we have to rise above them to the values of humanity so that we can co-exist lest we don’t exist at all.”

“Barack Obama has told crowds in Berlin that the US and Europe have drifted apart and it is time for them to come together again.”

Same speech – “People of Berlin, people of the world, this is our moment. This is our time,” he said.

Norman Mattoon Thomas was quoted, “I’d rather see America save her soul than her face.”

Obama in his Turkish speech said that, “America, like every other nation, has made mistakes and has its flaws…”

Nothing new under the sun!

Many Socialists joined Roosevelt and the Democrat Party in the 1930’s. They incorporated the changes Thomas wanted. Today Obama is being compared to that 1930’s group.

FDR fundamentally changed the relationship between the American people and their government, and between the United States and the world, according to David Woolner, a professor of history at Marist College in nearby Poughkeepsie, N.Y.

Obama is not original. He is not change. The socialism change has already taken place with Norman Mattoon Thomas. Obama is just carrying out his marching orders.

Nothing new under the sun!

Norman Mattoon Thomas became a patriarchal figure, revered and honored. Obama will too!

Norman Mattoon Thomas died on Dec. 19, 1968. Obama will someday, too!

Nothing new under the sun!

Norman Mattoon Thomas prophetically said, “I am not the champion of lost causes, but the champion of causes not yet won.” The persistence expressed in that statement exemplifies why the U.S. is embracing socialism.

Norman Mattoon Thomas envisioned a socialistic philosophy of change for the U.S. That change isn’t Obama’s idea.

Obama is just Norman Mattoon Thomas’s lad.

Nothing new under the sun!
