1996 Questionnaire Reveals Obama’s Radical Positions
1996 was a busy year for Barack Obama. It was ushered in by joining the socialist New Party on January 11. Throughout the year, he attended New Party events. On September 10, 1996, early in the morning, a questionnaire filled out by Obama was faxed to Chicago Democratic Socialists of America-linked Independent Voters of Illinois. In it, Obama admitted to being endorsed by the New Party, supporting single-payer healthcare, government-funded abortions, and a ban on handguns! These are not views normally propounded by a moderate Democrat, as was the image the mainstream media presented to the American public when voters went to the polls on November 4, 2008.Yet this questionnaire was no secret. ABC News reported on the handgun ban aspect of it (ignoring the other troubling facts) on April 17, 2008. But when the powers that be in the Democrat Party determined that Obama should be crowned as the nominee and Hillary Clinton should step aside, the questionnaire, along with every other troubling aspect of Obama’s past, was quickly jettisoned overboard and sunk to the bottom of the proverbial media swamp.
