This is good stuff from a guy who tends to disagree with us on McCain, but is fighting the good fight against the Democrats, and therefore deserves our attention and respect. He, Eric Dondero has posted an excellent article on Libertarian Republican, which shows Obama in his true light.
It will be well worth while following the link and checking out the article, then read the previous post on a possible McCain/Palin ticket.

Barack Hussein Obama refuses to wear an American flag lapel pin, does not put his hand over his heart during the singing of the national anthem and has campaign workers who display flags of Latin America Communist Revolutionary Che Guevera in his Campaign Headquarters. Within the last few weeks, Obama has picked up the support of two Communist leaders: Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and Nicauraguan President Daniel Ortega.
It's now being revealed that Obama has a hardcore Socialist past here in the US. Human Events investigative reporter Cliff Kincaid on BHO's past connections to the Democratic Socialists of America:
Obama has his own controversial socialist connections. He is, in fact, an associate of a Chicago-based Marxist group with access to millions of labor union dollars and connections to expert political consultants, including a convicted swindler.
Obama's socialist backing goes back at least to 1996, when he received the endorsement of the Chicago branch of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) for an Illinois state senate seat. Later, the Chicago DSA newsletter reported that Obama, as a state senator, showed up to eulogize Saul Mendelson, one of the "champions" of "Chicago's democratic left" and a long-time socialist activist. Obama's stint as a "community organizer" in Chicago has gotten some attention, but his relationship with the DSA socialists, who groomed and backed him, has been generally ignored.
DSA describes itself as the largest socialist organization in the United States and the principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International. The Socialist International (SI) has what is called "consultative status" with the United Nations... Full story: Aim Org.
Democractic Socialists of America backed Obama in the '90s
In addition, according to Steve Bartin at News alert.com, Obama, the local Ward "Commuity Organizer" was endorsed by the DSA way back in 1996 in his first run for State Senate:
Barack Obama is running to gain the Democratic ballot line for Illinois Senate 13th District... Luckily, Mr. Obama does not have any opposition in the primary. His opponents have all dropped out or were ruled off the ballot. But if you would like to contribute to his campaign, make the check payable to Friends of Barack Obama...
Later, Obama received the enthusiastic endorsement of the DSA in his failed bid for Congress in 2000. As reported in the Democratic Socialists of America journal New Ground, March/April 2000:
Barak Obama is serving only his second term in the Illinois State Senate so he might be fairly charged with ambition, but... Obama also has put in time at the grass roots, working for five years as a community organizer in Harlem and in Chicago. When Obama participated in a 1996 UofC YDS Townhall Meeting on Economic Insecurity, much of what he had to say was well within the mainstream of European social democracy.
