    Great, cue the "Obama is an idiot socialist, Marxist Kenyan muslim who sacrifices small children and puppies working for the 'New World Order' to enslave all of us and put us into FEMA death camps under the Denver airport while secretly worshipping Satan and selling arms to Communist nations..."

    :rolleyes:

    I see people throw the word Socialist around online so much that I really don't think 90% of them know what it means. It's like the Red scare of the 50's all over where anyone who disagreed with the US Government was automatically a Communist.

    Exactly. Ironic that we have socialist programs; civil servants, teachers, police, firemen, etc. I suppose we should eliminate those social programs.

    It's frustrating having grown up in London with better healthcare than the U.S. (actually, I think Somalia has better healthcare lol). Then again, we outspend North Korea 75 to 1 on our military budget (roughly 51% of tax dollars). No wonder we're so behind in education and healthcare compared to other first world nations.

    Not sure about all of that but he is absolutely a Marxist and Socialist. Not sure he is an idiot as I think he knows he is destroying America as we know it and that is his intention. He is creating a "Detroit" or "California" out of the United States. That is what FAILED liberal policies bring...

    He is lining up his Lemmings quite well...

    And the conservative policies from 1920-1928 and 2000-2008 helped us to prosper..... Not to mention conservative policies in the 1980's helped us out as well where the path of uncontrolled spending started.....

    One sided policies screw us all.

    Right....except you don't have any 'real' facts to support your statement.

    i.e.: FOX talking points don't count as facts.

    Actually, the US has some of the highest quality healthcare in the world. The problem with it is that between the insurance companies doing what they do, the constant barrage of malpractice lawsuits doctors have to face, the twisted, serpentine course medicare and medicaid have taken over the years due to political infighting, and problems compounded with problems compounded with problems, practically no one can afford it without having to lean on various companies who may or may not have your best interests at heart.

    If this is true, then he is simply building on the hard work and tireless efforts towards these ends by the previous administration. Something tells me that you probably thought those guys were cool.

    I want you to give me five examples of socialist and/or Marxist policies implemented by Obama since he came into office 5 years ago.

    Just five. Certainly you can do that for me, right?

    Look up the definition of liberal, marxism, socialism. Tons of liberals are down to the earth hardworking honest people. The conservatives on the other hand seem to only care about exploitation of wages and pupetteering the politicians. But no go on touting your pathetic nonsense. the conservatives of today are in fact completely insane, they couldn't get along with Reagan.

    I get it... You are from that country that is on the path to where others must do everything for you. Let me look up the definition of the descriptions of the US Obama administration.

    Marxism: : the political, economic, and social principles and policies advocated by Marx; especially : a theory and practice of socialism including the labor theory of value, dialectical materialism, the class struggle, and dictatorship of the proletariat until the establishment of a classless society

    Socialism: any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods

    The government is on the path to run everything!

    ----------

    Conservatives stopped slavery and the Democratic Party fought for slavery to the bloody end.

    Keep laughing, but educate yourself long the way.

    The old old republican party was founded on modern democratic ideology. Notice the term: modern. Founded in the Northern states in 1854 by anti-slavery activists, modernizers, ex-Whigs, and ex-Free Soilers, the Republican Party quickly became the principal opposition to the dominant Southern Democratic Party and the briefly popular Know Nothing Party.

    Then things flipped and the conservatives became the racists and the Democratic party fought for civil rights. Lincoln wouldn't be apart of todays Republican party.

    Hell, if Teddy, Lincoln, etc were alive today they would probably form another party seeing how far lost both parties are worrying about their own self-interests, agenda, and power.

    No he's just factually completely wrong. How can the old republicans be conservatives IF THEY WERE NEWLY FORMED AND IN OPPOSITION TO A PREVIOUS PARTY.

    Socialism is not different based on opinion. Socialism IS: any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods

    This president absolutely lives out this agenda in almost all of his policies. He wrote books how he advocates and surrounds himself with socialist. He wrote it in HIS OWN book. It does not matter if someone disagrees. The definition is the definition!!!

    It's the worst kind of statement. It's a true statement. I know you still think Mitt Romney was winning the election right up until the votes were counted but NO.

    Well then we are a socialist country by default then because the constitution explicitly states that the federal government is in charge of how businesses operate here in the US.
