Is Obama a Socialist?

I hear people say that Obama is a socialist.

If its true, it is hard to imagine what Obama will need to do once he gets into office.

The government has "spread the wealth" by giving the Secretary of the Treasury the power to spread a lot of money, some say $850 billion, some say more. He has already given quite a bit of it to the banks. The lying liberal media says that this money is to be used to help the banks generate more loans. However, the Treasury Secretary has admitted that he did not give the money to the banks with any pre-conditions. Maybe the banks will spread the wealth around by giving out more executive bonuses.

The government took over Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac, and it may now own your mortgage. The person who holds your mortgage can pretty much tell you where to live. Socialists do that. Bush did that.

The government now owns your bank, and can deny you the small business loan you need to get ahead in this world. They could probably deny you the right to take your money out. Socialists do that. Bush did that.

The government can eavesdrop on your conversations, and on this e-mail exchange, for any reason at all. Bush did that. The lying liberal media complains that the law says that they can only eavesdrop on you if they suspect that you committed illegal activities. Nope. Under the Patriot Act and the Military Commission Act, and the revised NSA the government can do what it wants. And can enlist the phone companies and the internet companies to help out. Socialists do that. Bush did that.

The government can take you away in the middle of the night, say that you do not have the proper papers to establish your American citizenship, label you an enemy combattent, and can detain you indefinitely in Cuba, Iraq or more likely, Eastern Europe. Socialists do that. Bush did that.

Wherever they can take you, they can torture you. In the 3rd debate and in a speech yesterday, Barack Obama again congratulated McCain for opposing torture tactics that were supposed to be in the Military Commissions Act. No. McCain opposed those tactics when he went on Letterman and Oprah. But when it came time to twist arms in the backroom, he made sure that all those torture tactics remained in the law. Only socialists and communists and Nazis torture. And George Bush. Thanks for the help, John. I guess torture is only wrong when you get tortured.

Bush did not raise your taxes. Instead, he borrowed all this money from China. One day, China will decide it wants its money back, and we will not be able to pay them. Then we will be even more in debt to the socialists than we are now.

Remember when we owed the Saudi Arabians so much money that Bush 41 was forced to fight a war to pay back the debt? Remember when we couldn't go into Iraq and get Saddam then because the Saudis didn't want us to?

Who do you think we'll have to fight a war against to pay back our debt to China? What actions will we not be able to take for fear of offending our partners? Remember how Bush spoke out against human rights violations at the Olympics? Oh, sorry, that didn't happen. The President of the United States is not allowed to speak truth to Communist China.

Heckuva job, Bushie! See you at Red Square!
