OBAMA SOCIALISM IS MARXISM
Dictatorship of the proletariat
--ONLY THE "PROLETARIAT" WON'T BE WORKING! THEY'LL BE SITTING ON THEIR ASSES, COLLECTING "REBATE" CHECKS FROM THE TAXES OF THE SUPER-RICH, CORPORATIONS, SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS, AND WORKERS WHO MAKE MORE THAN $250,000 OR $150,000--DEPENDING WHOM YOU ARE LISTENING TO or at what level the "Chosen One" will set the tax-'em-till-it-hurts divide so that his "Communities" that he "organized" and who were and are his firm "base" can "Share the Wealth" and realize their and his "Dream" as declared in THIS:
ACORN’s ‘Communist Manifesto’

As a public service here is a copy of ACORN’s so-called People’s Platform, via the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine.
As is noted, this version was updated in 1990, which is just two years before Mr. Obama began to work for them via Project Vote and as a trainer for the "power" seminars.
We demand our birthright: the chance to be rich, the right to be free.
Our riches shall be the blooming of our communities, the bounty of a sure livelihood, the beauty of homes for our families with sickness driven from the door, the benefit of our taxes rather than their burden, and the best of our energy, land, and natural resources for all people.
Our freedom is the force of democracy, not the farce of federal fat and personal profit. In our freedom, only the people shall rule. Corporations shall have their role; producing jobs, providing products, paying taxes. No more, no less. They shall obey our wishes, respond to our needs, serve our communities. Our country shall be the citizens’ wealth and our wealth shall build our country.
Government shall have its role: public servant to our good, fast follower to our sure steps. No more, no less. Our government shall shout with the public voice and no longer to a private whisper. In our government, the common concerns shall be the collective cause.
We represent a people’s platform, not a politician’s promise.
We demand the changes outlined in our platform and plan. We will work to win. We will have our birthright. We will live in richness and freedom. We will live in one country as one people.
We are the majority, forged from all minorities. We are the masses of many, not the forces of few. We will continue our fight until the American way is just one way, until we have shared the wealth, until we have won our freedom.
What happens when you heavily tax Corporations and Small Business Owners? They DOWNSIZE--which means less jobs, layoffs, and punishment of the "MIDDLE CLASS" so suposedly beloved by the Marxist/Socialist Obama because they also invest in the stock market which will reflect what is happening to corporations.
The "dictatorship of the proletariat" or workers' state is a term employed by Marxists that refers to what they see as a temporary state between the capitalist society and the classless, stateless and moneyless communist society; during this transition period, "the state can be nothing but the revolutionary dictatorship of the proletariat." The term does not refer to a concentration of power by a dictator, but to a situation where the proletariat (the working class) would hold power and replace the current political, economic and social system controlled by the bourgeoisie (the propertied class). In short, the "dictatorship of the proletariat" would replace the current "dictatorship of the bourgeoisie"; the crucial distinction being that while the bourgeoisie is by definition a minority, the proletariat is, similarly, always the majority . Many Marxists refer to this transitional stage as socialism or "workers' democracy".
The "dictatorship of the proletariat"--when the Society is turned upside down--ends with "the notion of a "dictatorship of the proletariat" to justify what was in effect a dictatorship of a new ruling elite, although of a different nature than the previous ruling elite.
According to the "Maoist Internationalist Movement,"
"What is the dictatorship of the proletariat?"

The proletariat is the group of people who are propertyless and thus have "nothing to lose but their chains." The proletariat is the least conservative element of society. The bourgeoisie is the class of people who appropriate the labor of wage workers through their control of the means of production.
Dictatorship is organized force. According to Marxism, all governments are dictatorships. When classes are abolished, it may be possible to have no dictatorships because governments will be abolished and replaced by voluntary cooperation. We communists admit to having dictatorship governments until we achieve our goal of classlessness. It's a matter of accountability.
Dictatorship of the proletariat is the government of socialism. Dictatorship of the bourgeoisie is the government of capitalism.
Concretely and with reference to North Amerikan ideas, dictatorship of the proletariat is government implementation of "survival rights" above "property rights."
The realization that the right to life itself can not be negotiable favors the proletariat. Along with that realization comes the notion that a non-negotiable "right" implies the use of force to protect it from those who profit abusing those so-called rights. The use of force or law backed by force (government) to feed, clothe, shelter and otherwise protect survival rights is dictatorship of the proletariat.
