Republicans scream and yell about “Obamacare” and how much they oppose what they consider to be the socialist who’s currently the president. In a recent poll, republicans and tea party members were asked if they considered Barack Obama a socialist. 71% said yes, and only 17% said no.
This must be a joke, because Republicans are little more than the pot calling the kettle black.
So, let’s take a look at that – first, with a definition of socialism.
Socialism. so·cial·ism [soh-shuh-liz-uhm] noun
(in Marxist theory) the stage following capitalism in the transition of a society to communism, characterized by the imperfect implementation of collectivist principles.
