There were no new specific policies in President Obama’s acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention on Thursday night. As always, Obama wants the government to increase its initiation of physical compulsion in manufacturing, the energy industry, education, and medicine, to name a few aspects of human life. But the final passage provides a pithy illumination of Obama’s basic premises:

If you believe that new plants and factories can dot our landscape; that new energy can power our future; that new schools can provide ladders of opportunity to this nation of dreamers; if you believe in a country where everyone gets a fair shot, and everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same rules, then I need you to vote this November.
(APPLAUSE)
America, I never said this journey would be easy, and I won’t promise that now. Yes, our path is harder, but it leads to a better place. Yes our road is longer, but we travel it together. We don’t turn back. We leave no one behind. We pull each other up. We draw strength from our victories, and we learn from our mistakes, but we keep our eyes fixed on that distant horizon, knowing that Providence is with us, and that we are surely blessed to be citizens of the greatest nation on Earth.
(APPLAUSE)
Thank you, God bless you, and may God bless these United States.

In short, unless he is lying about the religious and American parts, Obama is a religious national socialist. Why won’t he and his supporters admit it?
