Obama, Heir to Stalin

The policies of Barack Obama, as well as the practices of many of his staunchest supporters, has many very worried. One of those is Shawn D. Akers, who wrote a must-read column today for Canada Free Press.

Akers points out the dangers of the Obama cult of personality, the promise of heavy handed state control and thuggery by proxy - even the spectre of a soft dictatorship. Akers is the Director of Academic Support and an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Law at Liberty University School of Law.
