I would be more surprised to here that 50% of Americans think that circles are round.

Socialist? How could anyone think that of Obama?

Is your local Police dept. and the protection it offers to your community a socialist service? How about your Fire dept., are their services considered to be the result of a socialist government? Or what about the sewer system that serves your community and the highways that provide access to and from your community, are all of these things the result of a socialist mindset or government?

These activities are usually state sponsored not much via federal govt.
So no not really

Now why don't you ask me about welfare and healthcare and if these things are socialist regardless of it being privatized with high profit margins.

The larger needs of any society must be addressed by the society as a whole and the process of doing so should not be considered socialism. The constant use of these terms such as communism, socialism and fascism, as well as many others, are nothing more than words used to frighten voters.

Needs of the whole?
Bailing out friends accommodates the needs of the whole?
Overspending.. ooppss.. I Stimulus packages that promises wooden arrows and stupid stuff is for the people? Pelosi threatening a state of emergency if not approved is for the people?

Wow.. who needs enemies when your countrymen have people like you?

The success of the republican party depends on their ability to make voters fearful of the democratic party and demonizing words like "liberal" or "socialism" is the main course of their diet.

The republican party has been hijacked by neocons and Obama supports the neocon agenda therefore perhaps so has the democractic party been infiltrated.

Scary words... You mean like right-wing militia movements?
Like that?

When they say, "We are going to take our country back," I think they really mean it. Only thing is, I think they want to take us back some 200 yrs. or more. I don't know about you, but forward is the direction I prefer.

You are obviously unaware of the mass corruption currently in office.

Sigh, a picture is worth a thousand words

this is one of the most retarded things i've ever seen:

Obama = Hilter= Lenin...

That's a billboard Tea partiers had put up, but took it down again because someone with a working brain in the tea party movement knew it was to offensive...(and imho retarded, idiotic and childish)

How do you think this makes Americans look abroad?

You are worried about a billboard?
How does EVERYTHING else make make America look abroad?

Illegal invasions, torture on foreign soil in secret black sites, CIA overthrowing foreign govts., Monsanto, Unmanned Drones attacking civilians etc....

And you are worried about how a Billboard will make us look abroad?

over 50% of Americans voted for George W. Bush, too.
Whats your point?

And over 80% still believe they have a representative form of government and believe that there are 2 parties involved called the Republicans and Democrats, Liberals and Conservatives.

Over 80% still believe the official finding regarding all the info surrounding 911 is true.

That Al Qaida, Muhamed Atta, the Taliban, Khalid-Sheikh-Mohammed-Osama Bin Laden, and others like Abu Musab al-Zarqawi all orchestrated and carried out 911, Madrid Bombings and other large acts of terror and that
The 911 Commission Report is solid sound info of what really transpired.

Over 95% still refuse to believe creatures reside in underground facilities refuse to believe our leaders are influenced by unseen entities. After all...that info comes from an insane Soccer player that said he was the son of god thus it isn't true. Right?

I could go on but it would be like trying to convince a cow that it is a turtle. It would just sit there with that blank look in its face.

I take it from your post that you support what Hitler
and Stalin did in the past?
I am not a bit surprised to see that some would find
this billboard as being too offensive.
There are a lot of people that want to sweep the past
under the rug.Then pretend that it never happened,so
they can rewrite history to suit themselves.Everyone who
knew the truth would either be dead or silenced.
Then what?History gets to repeat itself because people
don't learn from past mistakes.

Well, if it is 50%+ doesn't that literally make him a socialist? People give words meaning, right? So, regardless of your view of Obama, the word socialist now means whatever it is that Obama is, because most people say so. Follow my drift?

Anyway, even if you think what I said above is retarded, this is the definition of socialism -

"a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole. "

Seems like that describes modern government pretty well, especially our last few presidents who have greatly expanded the federal government. Our government owns all the money and controls its production, I think it's safe to say it is a fact that Obama (bush was too) and the rest of our government is socialist by definition and interpretation(according to the poll).

Why would anyone deny the fact the US is socialist? I think the only is answer is the brainwashing by the single corporate political party, consisting of two wings - republican and democrat. Sure, you get to "choose" in elections

I don't think he's a socialist. I do however think he is a complete and utter moron when it comes to pretty much everything he has touched. I used to think Bush was bad... but honestly! I often wonder if Obama has ANY understanding of the things going on in this country. He just seems to be so far out of touch.

I am ashamed that I voted for him. Not that McCain would have been any better.

Whaaaaat? You take it from my posts? DO you know how to read?
Where did you get that from? Quote the part where i show "support", i never did and never will.

Where did I show support for The hideous evil things Hitler and Stalin did?

I'm appalled that you think that I support that. At this point you're just making things up now to make me look bad..... which is wrong, and not very Christian like of you.... I bet you thought when posting that: "oh i'll show that god damned atheist..."

To bad the ignore list on ATS only allowed 10 or so people....

So please quote the part where I show support for Hilter and Stalig, or retract your silly post. You're making yourself look bad (again).
