    Re: Is Obama a Socialist or a Communist?

    You forgot the "facepalm, my countrymen are politically and economically illiterate" option. That's the one I would have picked. I feel like we're in a library full of elite historical texts by learned scholars and my fellow Americans choose to get their history from "Shoot'em up War Comics: The good and the bad in clear black and white." I think some Americans are watching an old B Ronald Reagan movie with a creepy narration, "And then the bad Muslim guy came to town to had been yelled at by his preacher to hate America... he had been instilled with MARXIST ideas and was a bad guy pinko COMMIE." I think most Americans could not even begin to correctly define Marxist or socialist political philosophy, much less have an intelligent conversation about the merits or lack thereof of such systems. They're stuck in comic book mentality.

    He is one of them. He is a political agitator. He knows them well and they know him.

    He must be defeated. Crushed. And tossed onto the ash-heap of history. Remember to get out there and vote for president Obama on November 10th!

    Wow! I am convinced. LOL. NOT.

    Are those of us who post here indicative of most Americans? I tend to doubt it. There is good. And there is evil. We are in the midst of evil. We can, and we must defeat the one term Marxist in November. That is true even if you see it through a comic book lens.

    Youre right of course - the top tax rate in the 1950s was NOT 52% - it was around 90%.

    See what happens when you are not up to speed with the facts?

    You paint yourself into a corner you cannot possibly extract yourself from - lol

    The 52% is an average tax rate for the top 400 income earners in the 1950s.

    I can only suggest that you look at the data rather than just saying "I DONT BELIEVE YOU" and assuming that I am fabricating the data to make a political point

    He told Putin to cut his some slack. He told Putin that he could be more flexible after his re-election. Obama, the one term Marxist, is our enemy. He is not our friend. He must be defeated and sent out to play with Slick Willie.

    It's hard to take you seriously when you don't know what Marxism is.
