In Response to Re: STEALING SOC SECURITY AND MEDICARE:
Crepplrm and Janmb: Obama is a SOCIALIST and so are his union buddies Richard Trumka of the AFL and the head of the SEIU. What I, as an American resent, is his eroding of our freedoms. To appease his union thug buddies he's appointed socialists to the NLRB who tried to prevent Boing from setting up shop in the Carolinas because it was a right to work state. He's used "fast and furious" to circumvent the second amendment and in the process two US members of the border patrol were killed along with hundreds of Mexicans. He's forcing a cookie cutter healthcare plan down our throats. He's putting hundreds of thousands in the US energy industry out of work. He's making impossible for business to operate by creating all sorts of rules to hinder them. He's distributing money from one group of Americans to another. I'd much rather have a choice in who my charitable contributions go to rather than have the government do it for me. The government is probably the most inefficient resource for doing things. There are NO economic restraints!!!

Greenspan went before the senate (look it up) and testified that he was WRONG about deregulation remember the MESS on Wall Street. Less regulation---business are operating as usual---we need MORE REGULATION----look at CHASE BANK NEW TODAY !!! I don't know where you pick up this kind of lousy information.
Most of our elites would certainly not entertain the question: “Is Obama a socialist?” Only irresponsible fanatics carelessly throw around such epithets, they say. Polite circles ignore such goofiness. TO FORBES who is capitalistic...& professionally studied and written about comparative economics, capitalism, and socialism for decades, the reticence to probe the core beliefs of a political leader like Obama seems odd. “socialist,” I do not mean a Lenin, Castro, or Mao, but whether Obama falls within the mainstream of contemporary socialism as represented, the kind we all love and use....schools, military, libraries, nat'l parks, police--fire etc then yes.....
