They're just too stupid to know any better.

Just like Republicans were to stupid to realize Bush was a Statist in love with central planning and big government.

And if Mittens would have won he would have bedded down with the same groups. I have veiwed both parties as the right and left of fascism. On another thread I quoted Upton Sinclairs " fascism will come to America waving a flag and carrying a cross". How right he was.

In my home town of Seattle, a local socialist candidate got 29% of the vote. A third party candidate of any kind usually doesn't get that much, but A SOCIALIST? And she's even more radical than I am (she's a Troskyite, I am anti-all things associated with the evil USSR)

Socialist Wins 29% of the Vote in Seattle

And the polls that show socialism is popular only say the word "socialism" and don't even qualify it, leaving things open from everything to Social Democracy to crazy "insurrectionist" socialism like Rosa Luxemburg and the "socialism" of the USSR and Cuba. If they just said "democratic socialism" you can be guaranteed more people would be for that.

Anyway, we socialists can all agree on one things: OBAMA ISN'T WITH US!

First, the bailout: giving money to banks to keep them huge is the opposite of socialism. If he nationalized bad banks, that would be one thing, but helping them screw over working people?

Second, his healthcare laws says that I have to buy healthcare FROM A CORPORATION. What the hell is that? If this was universal healthcare with everyone having equal help to pay for doctors, fine, but making me give money to a private company?

Third, NDAA. What the hell is with the law that says he can detain anyone indefinitely just because he "suspects" they are criminals? That may make him a Stalinist of sorts, but he certainly is no Eugene Debs (do right wing hacks even know who he is? )

Fourth: wars. He has so much blood in his hands in Pakistan and Iraq and Libya it isn't even funny. Forget Benghazi, what about him releasing racist terror in Libya?

Libyan rebel ethnic cleansing and lynching of black people Human rights investigations

Surprise, Surprise...our first "black" president doesn't really care about black people as much as he cares about the military industrial complex.

In no way, shape or form can anything Obama does be called "socialist". Please, stop making us look bad by associating us with the right-wing hack in chief.
Please don't call him "right wing" either.

"Socialist" just means government ownership of the means of production. One of the first things Pres Obama did in 2009 was to quash a DC school voucher program that enabled kids to go to non-gov't schools. So by that example alone, he does fit the term.

We're all socialists to one degree or another, anyway. I like a gov't owned and operated military, and a gov't owned and operated court and prison system.

Oh good grief. I keep hearing from conservatives about low educated voters and now I know why.
