Is Obama really a socialist? Some say so, but where's the evidence?
christian science monitor ^ | Ron Scherer,

Posted on 07/01/2010 12:39:33 PM PDT by Nachum

The assertion is getting louder: President Obama is a socialist, a wealth-redistributing wolf in Democrat's clothing gnawing at America's entrepreneurial spirit.

It's easy to buy "Obama is a socialist" bumper stickers on the Internet. Political commentator Dick Morris said, in a column circulated on GOPUSA.com, that conservatives are "enraged at Barack Obama's socialism and radicalism." Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich titled his new book "To Save America: Stopping Obama's Secular-Socialist Machine."

Oooookay... Socialist? Proof? Hmmm.. I bet FReepers could offer some. Here is a few tidbits to start...

He---

Socialized Medicine
Took over Two of our major car companies
Took over the student loan industry
Has at least 34 former or current members of the Democratic Socialists of America or Communist Party who work in the White House for him

-and that's just to start

No, he’s a fascist.

And here’s another avenue of argument -

“sure, let’s say he’s not a socialist/communist/fascist - how would he be acting differently if he were?”

No he is not a socialist, he is a Marxist. A full throated,

How about we just take his word for it?

"We've got to make sure that people who have more money help the people who have less money," Sen. Obama said. "If you had a whole pizza, and your friend had no pizza, would you give him a slice?"

They don’t recognize him as a socialist because they refuse to admit the reality that modern American liberalism is socialism. They prefer to see themselves as in line with earlier classical liberal ideals, rather than how they have kept the name, but thrown out all that classical liberalism stood for. Those classical liberals are the modern conservatives and libertarians.

I can’t believe that they would even title their article as such. The man is clearly a Marxist with a hidden Marxist past and evil goals for America.

Bad analogy. You buy a pizza and someone from the government comes to your house and takes half of your pizza and gives it to your neighbor. If I want to share my pizza, I can. The government shouldn’t make me.

Typical tactic of the left. Get some really wacked left-wingers and have them say he isn't one of them and POOF...all of sudden Obama is a "moderate".

Not falling for it.

Good list. I think for Freepers is simply a matter of deciding what brand of socialism. Many of us contend that he behaves like a Nazi, since he has used his bullying tactics to heavily control industry; e.g., forcing the banks to take stimulus funds and extorting funds from BP. The majority want to label him a Communist due to actions like taking over student loans and health industry.

Perhaps we should coin a new label which combines both? I propose Communazi!

Is Obama really a socialist?.....

Do you really need to ask this question here?

He’s part of the “hate America” crowd. He’s bundled in with all the facists, socialists, communists and anarchists. He hates the Constitution. He hates middle America. He hates us......

I would try but the government will step in and demand that all the people get a slice and some folks are far more deserving than either my friend or myself so we'll be left starving as the resturant fills with uninvited unpaying diners who will eat my pizza.

They play word games with the definition of socialist, they point out little details and differences of degree as proof that it is not socialism, but down at the rotten stinking bottom it is unadulterated marxism.

The differences between German national socialism and Italian fascism as compared to Marxism are irrelevant from my level of view, they all consist of a boot planted firmly on my neck. A blend of all three won't be any different.

What he was saying to me is that we are known by the company we keep around us. Just like what our mothers used to say [mine did at least]

obama? a socialist?

No...he's just a misunderstood adolescent with a chip on his shoulder who thinks his calling from allah is to take from the haves and redistribute to the "moocher" class in a round-robin plan to keep himself re-elected.

Proof? Well, this late in the game, any dumb fu** that needs proof that oblammer is a socialist, hasn't been paying attention.

The paying diner and his friend will eventually walk out of the resturant and the resturant will eventually close. Then the uninvited and unpaying diners will start to get hungry and angry. The first person they’ll blame is the greedy resturant owner who was driven to bankruptcy and then they’ll turn on the former paying diner.

In the end the freeloaders will turn on each other because that’s all that will be left.

The “paying diners” should understand that they need to own and practice with firearms in the face of the eventuality of the freeloaders personally coming to take whatever he has left.

Also, compare Obama’s economic policy objectives with Lenin’s New Economic Policy of 1921.

Not an exact matchup, but does catch the major points.

Huh?? Modern Democrats themselves are wealth-redistributing to the core.

It would be more accurate to say Obama is a Marxist wolf in Socialist’s clothing.

Skip to comments.Google: Obama’s Residence Linked to PSL Phone Number
© 2008 TexasDarlin/TD Blog ^ | December 17, 2008 | by texasdarlin

Posted on 12/18/2008 3:54:57 AM PST by Fred Nerks

This is curious and bizarre. A reader, Jane, conducted some Google searches related to the Obamas’ Chicago home on Greenwood Avenue, and discovered the following, which I verified with my own searches, and documented with screenshots at approximately 2:30 PM ET on 12/17/08:

A Google search of the Obamas’ address, 5046 Greenwood Ave., Chicago, yields this:

Greenwood Ave. Search 12/17/08

The phone number listed for the address, if you can’t make it out, is 415-821-6171, a San Francisco area code. When I Google’d that phone number, this came up:

Greenwood Phone Search 12/17/08

The phone number associated with the Obama’s mansion is the number for the national Party of Socialism and Liberation. When I clicked on that link, I got this:

PSL Home Page 12/17/08

And a tab for local offices on the PSL site shows this:

PSL Local Offices Page 12/17/08

Why on Earth is the phone number for the Party for Socialism and Liberation linked to the Obamas’ private residence in Chicago?

Theories?

Thank you again, Jane.
