I am denying it. All that is propaganda garbage. As i stated, socialism, at its core, is ownership of the means of production by all the people.
This is in no wise supported by obama or any of his affiliates. A single payer health system, that INCLUDES the insurance industries, is NOT
socialism, it is still control of the system by the wealthy elite corporate business owners. True socialist systems would by necessity be NON PROFIT,
at least for individuals, as all the profit would be returned back to the people, and our system, including obama and all his affiliates, are ALL
about profit. All his major contributors where large multinational corporations, just like mccain and all the other candidates...except for maybe ron
paul, mike gravel, and perhaps kucinich.
In our country we paint any "social programs" as socialism, perhaps because they share the word "social" and americans seem unable to
differentiate between similar sounding words, Just as when Barrack "hussein" obama was running for president and many ignorant americans kept
pointing out that he shared a name with saddam, and must therefore be similar to him.
In truth, very few americans actually understand anything about socialism, including the fact that most socialist democracies (Those exist, you
know) in western europe actually have better quality of life, standard of living, life expectancy, healthcare systems, education, etc than we
americans with our system. Then again, most americans think we live in a democracy as well.
