They don't own land and other material things?
They don't have the power to hire people or pay them well enough so that other people can own land and other material things?
People on Social Security have paid in more than they will ever get back and some of us will never see a goddamn dime of it but we still pay it, so how about dropping that from the entitlement rhetoric?
Tell your billionaire friends to stop hiding their money off shore, tell your friends in the defense industry to stop buying politicians that vote for more war
Unless Obama is proposing turning over all production in the US to it's laborers than it isn't Socialism, it's something else. What else could it be?
No person in this country owns the land their homes or business sits on thank that genious idea to SOCIALISTS as in property taxes after all the needs of the many outweigh the need of the few.
Oh yeah with what the rules and regulations of Government lets them.
When people are consuming more wealth than they are paying that aint capitalism.
Yes they do own the land. Property tax has not one thing to do with Socialism. Socialism is worker ownership of the means of production, how does property tax have anything to do with that?
Another side effect of Capitalism. When the richest private owners buy the rules and regulations that don't apply to them in order to keep the small guy, small and thus never a threat.
LOL! Read what you wrote then think about how ironic that is considering the camp you're arguing for.

I'm losing track of the comparisons to what President he and his people most want to say he's like? Is it Lincoln, Roosevelt or Reagan? They'd have us believe, it seems sometimes, they are all interchangeable.
Titles are not important….intent is.
Regardless what you call it, Obama wants an entitlement society and he wants to rule it.
“The right to own a home”?? Isn’t that the kind of crap that gave us the Fanny-Freddie housing bubble fiasco?

There is a difference between EQUALITY of Opportunity and Equality of Station in Life by taking from those that have and giving to them that have not ("taking from each according to his means and giving to him according to his needs").
Obama wants an entitlement society? Where does this crap come from?
It is as bad as people tossing around the word socialist like they have any clue what it even means. It really gets old. Just once it would be nice to have some intellingent critisms of the President instead of the same old crap that has lots of neat buzz words but zero logic or facts to back it up.
The camp I am arguing for is what people use to call LIBERAL meaning freedom from Government.
