New Obama slogan has long ties to Marxism, socialism - Washington Times
I don't think Obama is a REAL socialist, he's more of a Statist, kind of like how the Nazi's treated the economy. You have Government working very closely with big business, where profits are private, but losses become Public. Very similar to Bush's "Too Big to Fail" policy with the banks.
In a way, it's almost a "Reverse Robinhood". Robinhood stole from the wealthy tax collectors, who had "stolen" their wealth from the poor. Robinhood gave that money BACK to the poor, and while Obama talks about taking money from the wealthy and giving it to the poor, instead he's given his biggest campaign contributors such as the CEO of Solyndra, hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars.
In a way, I think it's an insult to "true" socialists and "true" communist to call Obama a Socialist, because indeed he is not.
