Am I to believe that I have wasted 40 years of my life in this country trying to explain the nature of dictatorship and what it meant to have been born and lived in Stalin’s paradise the first half of my life?

Have I failed to pass on to you my firsthand knowledge of the misery of millions of gullible, trusting, Russian people, who fell prey to the fiery, well-rehearsed speeches of eloquent Marxist social-revolutionaries — leaders who promised fraternity, equal rights, free medicine, free education, good lives, and sharing the wealth of the rich. They found themselves trapped for life in a socialist, inhuman, criminal “experiment.”

What did the Russians get instead? Lies, empty promises, high unemployment, and more lies.

Sound familiar?

Russian skepticism is well expressed in an old song about a young girl, who sings to someone she is dating but who does not propose to her:

"Ahh, stop your lies my dear sweety,
Your words are no longer new.
All you promise is just words and words.
Just empty words that come from you."


America for us Russians was a dream, a fairy tale, a beacon of justice and freedom. It was the country we all dreamed about. And I have lived long enough in this country of my dreams to witness the triumph of justice — racial equality, the colorblind America. And yes, the election of the first black president of the United States! American voters made the right choice, I remember thinking — young, bright, an accomplished student of law.

Obama was a community organizer.

Little did I know four years ago that the man the country voted for had his own agenda for re-shaping this country by bringing about social changes — the same social changes that Marxists had inflicted upon Russia.

Now is the crucial time for voters to ask themselves if the choice they made four years ago was the right one. And if the answer is no, do not vote to give Obama a second term (one in which he said he so desperately needs).

Fire him, let him join the ranks of the unemployed and start looking for a job.

It is one thing for the president to say he is one of you, that he understands you and knows how it feels to live from check to check or not have a job. It’s quite another thing to become one of you — to lose his job, and then his home because he can’t afford to pay his mortgage, or even send his daughters to a school of his choice.

Obama was the wrong choice four years ago.

Do not give him another chance to carry out his agenda to convert this unique country into a Soviet-style “socialist paradise.” It was a painful experience for Russia, and it won’t work for this country. It took the Russian people almost a century to gain back even a semblance of freedom, like traveling abroad or having their own businesses.

All attempts at achieving full democracy have failed, because the people are unarmed and do not have the right to bear arms.

Hasn’t Obama been advocating gun control for this country? This is how it starts. Before you know it, he will sign gun control into law, in violation of the American Constitution, which grants people the right to bear arms and defend themselves. Another four years in office and Obama will irreversibly change the United States of America as we know it.

What did Americans who voted for Obama know about the man to whom they so readily entrusted their country, their lives, and their future?

A handsome man, a college graduate with a law degree, Obama settled in Chicago, where he started working as a community organizer for a Gamaliel Foundation organization.

What is a community organizer? Every city in Stalin’s Russia used to have community organizations. Every building, usually in the basement, had what was called “krasny ugolok” (a “red little corner”). That usually was a place adorned with political posters, communist propaganda literature, “educational” books on “communist leaders”— Marx, Lenin, and Stalin.

Those “red little corners” had sports equipment, billiards, and all sorts of games and entertainment, where mostly young (and sometimes not so young) people would get together, actually forming their grass-root political (“komsomol”) communities sponsored by the Soviet government.

Saul Alinsky, based in Chicago, is credited with originating the term community organizer. This is what we read: “Alinsky wrote “Reveille for Radicals,” published in 1946, and “Rules for Radicals,” published in 1971.

With these books, Alinsky was the first person in America to codify key strategies and aims of community organizing. He also founded the first national community organizing training network, the Industrial Areas Foundation, according to Wikipedia.

“There are many notable community organizers: Mary Harris ‘Mother’ Jones, Martin Luther King, Jr., Ralph Nader, and Barack Obama among others.

“More recently has come the emergence of youth organizing groups around the country. These groups use neo-Alinsky strategies. Most of these groups are created by — and directed by youth — or former youth organizers.

“Since Obama’s election, the campaign website, formerly ‘Obama for America,’ has been renamed ‘Organizing for America.’and has been placed under the auspices of the Democratic National Committee (DNC). This rebranded organization promotes the president’s legislative agenda items, such as healthcare reform, which was a key focus of the ‘OFA’ during 2009,” states Wikipedia.

I watched the first presidential debate last week — Obama vs. Mitt Romney, a bright, intelligent man of business I would trust. Obama struck me by being just a figurehead, a puppet of community organizers who propelled him to this high post. He was helpless, listless, with a blank expression on his face.

How dare this “law professor” deliver racially charged speeches to the country that elevated him to its highest post, accusing it of racism?

American voters must realize how crucial their choice will be in the forthcoming elections: To either reinstate the former glory and strength of this country or fall prey to community organizers and socialist ideals.

Vote for Mitt Romney!
