    Right, and so has every President since the inception of the income tax. In fact, the tax code was FAR more progressive under Truman and Eisenhower. Were they Marxists, too?

    So you do NOT think that Obama is a Marxist? Just to be clear.

    I have never called him a Marxist. Whether he is or is not, I do not know him intimately, so I cannot answer precisely whether he is or is not. I think he is just confused about some issues and how they should be handled. That doesn't make him a Marxist. That's my opinion and others may legitimately or illegitimately differ.

    Of course, if I were like some around here from the left side of the aisle, I could say he was a nutcase, but I have not said that either. I don't try to be ridiculous or sublime like some routinely do here. I hope you do the same.

    Well, let's put it this way: it is patently absurd to think that Obama *might* be a Marxist, so it is clearly NOT reasonable to maintain the position that he may or may not be a Marxist.

    I think someone would have to make the argument and provide the evidence that he was a Marxist. If that was done in a clear and convincing way, then I could believe that Obama was a Marxist. To my knowledge, limited as it is on the subject, I don't know of such an argument, but I cannot say that an argument cannot be made.

    Okay, that's fine. And in the same spirit, I would say that Michelle Bachman may or may not be a pedophile. And Ron Paul could be a serial killer. Who am I to say?
