  • Look at his actions!

    Look at some of the legislation our Dear Leader has tried to (and / or has) passed over the course of his presidency. The Affordable Care Act (AKA Obamacare) is a system of national healthcare in which those who could not afford healthcare otherwise are being given benefits they cannot afford, and those who do not need these benefits (or who need other coverage options) are forced to take them anyway, and pay extra for all others. This is the distribution of wealth - socialism. It is unfair to the producing members of society - the job makers and those who work hard in their professions. It takes money away from them to pay for those who do not work hard and cannot afford healthcare for themselves. What, then, is the incentive for anybody to produce if it will just be taken away?

    Also, just look at two big issues Obama is involved in: the previously mentioned social healthcare, and gun control. I do not believe it is a coincidence that these are the first two things Adolf Hitler imposed upon his country when he took office. He would sacrifice our second amendment rights based upon the actions of a few people. His logic is 'If guns are outlawed, outlaws will not have guns'. When in reality the reason they are called outlaws is because they are outside the law. If guns are outlawed, nobody will have guns but outlaws.

    Finally, take a look at his stance on income tax. He supports the graduated income tax system. In this system, the percentage of your income you pay in taxes increases as you make more money. This system only serves to drain the rich of their money, and lighten taxes on those with lower incomes. In fact, the bottom 50% of the US population pays no income taxes at all in this system. This is once again the distribution of wealth - socialism. The rich are forced to find ways to hide their money, because they know that the government will just take it all away. Why work hard to earn the money when it will just be taken from you? Why work at all then the government will take care of you? These are the questions that come into people's minds when socialism is instituted. A flat percentage tax would be more effective. The rich would still pay higher taxes, but the percentage of the income would remain constant. This way, all citizens of the United States would be subject to help support their country.

  • Yes He Is

    He just dosnt admit it because he would lose all support that he has. He thinks exactly like a cummunist. Heres an example, he made up the parent 1 and parent 2 instead of mom and dad. Also the thing that proves that he is the most is that he supports the idea that the children belong to the cumunity instead of the family

  • It's pretty obvious

    So while Obama has not been able to push every one of his agenda items through, his intentions have been quite clear. That's not to say his intentions are evil or wrong. It's not a bad thing to want socialized medicine or to want to raise the poverty floor in this country. Those are lofty worthwhile goals. It's the methods that become the problem. Nothing is free and some are all too willing to let the government take care of them than to make the attempt to pull themselves out of poverty, which is quite possible and encouraged in Capitalism. I think the issue is there are people in this country that, rightfully, believe they are in control of their destiny, not the government. The other side, if agreed to by everyone, is totally legitimate as well. The problem is that the two ideals do not mix well. Obama is of one side but he knows that he cannot simply wave his hand and make the US a Socialist country. He pushes policy that lead in that general direction. There is no doubt about that.

  • If he isn't, his teleprompter must be.

    Socialism is, at the most basic, public ownership of industry, banking, medical facilities and all other public services. It takes away the incentive for private individuals to succeed because it takes away the reward for doing so. By overly taxing those people who take the risk to achieve, it takes away the reward for that risk.

  • Yes, President Obama's political policies create a socialist nation.

  • Obama is a middle of the road democrat, not a socialist

    Socialism is a system in which there is no class division, only each person getting a portion of the whole as they need. Obama may lean more towards some socialist ideas such as ensuring the poor and less fortunate have access to services that helps meet their basic needs but he doesn't advocate for any kind of pure socialism. Calling Obama a socialist is a tactic to cause fear harking back to the "red scare" of the Cold War.

  • Maybe, leaning towards no.

    There are many different types of socialism. It depends on what definition of socialism you want to use. The purest most basic form of socialism is workers owning the means of production (not the state, or private individuals) & cooperation with others in the economy (instead of competition). The state providing basic services for us really isn't socialism; it's European "socialism", or social democracy. Although social democracy aims to transform capitalism into socialism theoretically, in practice that is hardly the case. If anyone is in a position of power they will strive to keep that power for as long as possible. True reform can't come until hierarchy and privilege are abolished.

  • No, President Obama is not a socialist.

    President Obama has not advanced or proposed any political philosophy for the United States' government policy. In a socialist economic system goods and services are produced directly for the use of the population, instead of for private profit. You'll note that under President Obama's administration the stock markets have reached historical highs and American companies are reporting record profits, the exact opposite of socialist driven economy.
