Both support dictatorships. One indirectly, through stupidity, the other directly, through actions.
What i mean by Obama supporting dictatorships is his belief in high government control and unlimited majority rule. I'll use these quotes to help: ( I'm ready for the strong Obama force to give me thumbs down here.)
"Remember that private citzens-whether rich or poor, whether businessmen or workers- have no power to start a war. That power is the exclusie prerogative of a government. Which type of government is more likely to plunge a country into war: a government of limited powers, bound by constitutional restrictions-or an unlimited government, open to the pressure of any group with warlike interests or ideologies, a government able to command armies to march at the whim of a single chief executive.
Yet it is not a limited government that today's peace-lovers are advocating."-Ayn Rand
"Observe one of the ugliest characteristics of today's world: the mixture of frantic war preparations with hysterical peace propaganda, and the fact that both come from the same source-from the same political philosophy. The bankrupt, yet still dominant, political philosophy of our age is statism.
Observe the nature of today's alleged peace movements. Professing love and concern for the survival of mankind, they keep screaming that the nuclear-weapons race should be stopped, that armed force should be abolished as a means of settling disputes among nations, and that war should be outlawed in the name of humanity. Yet these same peace movements do not oppose dictatorships; the political views of their members range through all shades of the statist spectrum, from welfare statism to socialism to fascism to communism. This means that they are opposed to the use of coercion by one nation against another, but not by the government of a nation against its own citizens' it means that they are oppposed to the use of force against armed adversariers, but not against the disarmed."-Ayn Rand
