Ron Paul: President Obama Is Not A Socialist


Near the end of the third day of this year's Southern Republican Leadership Conference, it was time for Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) to take the stage. Paul, fresh off his victory in the CPAC straw poll, gave a characteristically fired-up speech that took on the views of the Republican party establishment.

"The question has been raised about whether or not our president is a socialist," Paul said. "I am sure there are some people here who believe it. But in the technical sense, in the economic definition of a what a socialist is, no, he's not a socialist."

 Mitt Romney, the guy who shoved government healthcare down the throats of Massachusetts, WHAT SENSE DOES THIS MAKE AT THIS POINT IN HISTORY?

Second, what difference does it make if Obama's a Democrat, Socialist, Fascist or Corporatist? I know that technically there are differences, but in reality, they are all branches of the same tree. To me, they're all the same thing, totalitarianism, statism, collectivism and tyranny. Either way you end up a slave and they control the means of production directly or indirectly and to one degree or another.
