    WHY WOULD GERMANY SUPPORT A BOLSHEVIK WHICH IS WHAT OBAMA IS? MAYBE GERMANY WANTS THE NITED STATES TO SUFFER WHAT GERMANY DID FROM BOLSHEVIK RUSSIA DURING AND AFTER WORLD WAR II. WELL YOU MUST KNOW THAT BOLSHEVISM IS ALIVE AND WELL AND IS STILL TRYING TO SPREAD INTERNATIOINAL COMMUNISM AND INSTITUTE A GLOBAL GOVERNMENT FOR WORLD DOMINATION. EVERY STUPID THING GOING ON NOW IN THE WORLD LIKE GLABAL WARMING, THE ECONOMY UNCRISIS, THE EUROPEAN UNION, THE ATTEMPT AT THE AMERICAN UNIOIN, THE UNITED NATIOINS, WORLD BANK. THE INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND, ILLUMINATI, FREEMASONS, THE FABIANS, THE BILDERBERGERS, COUNCIL OF FOREIGN RELATIONS, THE TRILATERAL COMMISSION, AND EVERY OTHE THING THAT LEADS TO THE GREATEST EVIL OF ALL TIME AND THAT IS BOLSHEVISM.
