I will accept your silence as agreement that the young Obama grew up surrounded by Marxists, Communists, socialists, and progressives.

"At Occidental, Columbia and Harvard, Obama tells us he surrounded himself with Marxists professors, structural feminists, Franz Fanon and other radical socialists and big government advocates. After Harvard Obama’s tutelage was with disciples of Marxist Saul Alinsky as he learned the ropes of revolutionary “rules for radicals” in the communities of Chicago. In 1998, Illinois State Senator Barack Obama was not only an honored guest to watch the play The Love Song of Saul Alinsky, he was a spokes person for the play and defended the cultural Marxist worldview of Alinsky."

Yes. I believe that people can change their beliefs. Do you see any evidence that the one term Marxist, flexible with our enemies, president Barrack Hussein Obama is any less a committed, radical Marxist now than when he attended college? I do not.
Yes. He is no longer. He is a long dead European guy who got mixed up with the wrong crowd. He pissed off all his friends. And he wrote a great number of fairy tales. He wanted to be scientific so he wrote as if his economic/historical/philosophical tall tales were based in science.
Do you even know who Karl Marx is?
The question we must ask ourselves is do you know who he was?
I do believe you are describing Marx's mythical utopian vision of a communist society. The problem with utopias is that they do not exist. This one least of all.
Marx wanted the end of the state and a society run by a democracy of the worker. There IS NO PERSONAL WEALTH in a Marxist organization. You cannot spread the wealth around because the wealth is entirely communal.
I admit I am no expert. Marx's collected writings requires 50 volumes. I have read three of his significant works. He is a very bad prophet. But he is a great seductress. Everyone wants something for nothing. Marxism, and the one term Marxist, offer that don't they?
Jesus, you talk about Marxism but you demonstrate you have no actual understanding of what Marx actually wrote.
If there is no private property how can there be any taxes upon it? Do you begin to see your mistake? It is as if you cannot see the endings are different from the beginnings.
And in a Marxist organization, taxes are 100%.
In the beginnings Marx had to come up with the rationale and the method to wreck capital formation. He demonized the successful, the wealthy, the owners. Does any of that sound familiar? Can you not just hear Radical Karl saying, "If you've got a business, you didn't build that! Someone else made that happen."
Marx had his preferred method for wrecking capital accumulation. He advised steeply progressive taxes. The more you had the higher the percentage the government needed to take. Does that sound at all familiar to you?
Now we are back to the end state. Marx foolishly believed that after he wrecked capital, demonized the wealthy, the successful, the wealth creators, that somehow there would be excessive plenty created. Does that seem like a child-like dream to you? In fact he believed that in such a society that each person would strive to generate as much wealth as their skills, talent and hard work would allow. Of course, in this fairy tale the wealth makers would voluntarily give up everything for the state (is it still there?) to distribute to everyone, those I call the takers, based upon their needs.
Everyone gives everything they make to the society which is then doled back out based on need.
This statement is irrelevant. One does not wreck capital formation by taxing a mythical "Middle Class" less. One wrecks capital accumulation by taxing the wealth creators more.
Obama deliberately trying to have the middle class pay no more taxes is nowhere in line with what Marx wrote.
Really, learn to read critically. You will be astonished at just how many things become clearer after you learn how.
Really, stop defining words as you so please.
