    As much as any president. Our market has almost never been a free market. It's also never been socialism. Still isn't.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Rather, it has always been a bit of both.

    But Boo believes that Barrack Obama, that famed Venture Capitalist with the tax payer dollars, is not a Socialist. Maybe we need other more definite definitions of what socialism really is.

    Sort, of, yes. Regulated, with rules. The completely free market has as much trouble as the completely controlled market. Different issues, but problematic s sues all the same.

    He's not. Again, that word has a real definition.

    No, I think he is a little bit to the left of most presidents but he comes no where near the level of socialism. And there will not be any post US any time soon. The world has a lot to learn about peace and prosperity for there to be a post-any country.

    Our sensibilities are so exquisitely sensitive days (and the worry about litigation, frivolous or not, so real) that some individuals who are lacking in common sense are going to overreact. So long as it's not an affront to public decency or seditious in some way, I'm for "live and let live."

    Well it seems that there is a dictionary definition, as supplied by Boo, and then a mix, as defined by others. It would seem that Obama is at least part Socialist, a term Boo appears to deny. There also appears to be a stigma attached to Socialism because its seems to be made in Obama's defense that he is not a socialist.

    Which leads to the questions as to whether 'stealth socialism' really does exist and as a nation is undergoing greater and greater socialism it can only be completed, ii it ever can be completed, if the process is always being denied.

    Yeah... I wonder where that stigma came from?

    I get the feeling that if you were ever asked to debate a policy rather than attack general terms and phrases you like to banty about, the conversation wouldn't go very far.

    That's called Paranoia on your part.
