Obama is considered a Socialist because he spoke of redistributing the wealth. He also has some contraversal ideas regarding healthcare. It's not even universal healthcare, but it would be the closest we have to it if it ever got passed.
Anyway, that's what supposedly makes him a Socialist, and supposedly makes him so horrible.
So here is my question for some here. What did you all think of Tony Blair? He was part of the Labour Party. He supported universal healthcare and other social programs. He also was George Bush's ally in the war on terrorism. Australia was our ally for a while, and yet they have universal healthcare. What about Israel? Only about six percent of its land is privately owned. The rest is owned by the government. Before all the I/P contraversy, they were sort of considered a Socialist country by some. And yet I see conservatives supporting the state of Israel.
So what did you all think of all these leaders and countries that were our allies and at the same time have ideas that are "Socialist"?
