What exactly is meant by "Obama's policies are socialist"?
Seamar stands by a classic definition of socialism. Obama doesnt fit a very old and very narrow definition of Socialism.
Obama does want income redistributed. He wants to scoialize the medical system. He wants more day to day government control over business.
These are all socialist beliefs.
Social-security is income redistribution.
Income taxes are income redistribution,
Subsidies for farmers are income redistribution.
Tax loopholes are income redistribution.
Tax breaks for certain businesses are income redistribution.
And property taxes, which are based on the value of the property are outright Marxist. "From each according to his ability; to each according to his needs." If your fire department is funded this way then you are supporting a bunch of out and out Marxists. Be sure to point that out to them the next time you see one.
I am sure glad that no conservative or tea party member takes advantage of any of these programs.
