I do not, therefore I am clearly not socialist. Obama does, democrats do, most Republicans do, most americans do. I still have yet to see a democrat, a liberal, explain why they dont want to be called socialist. Its always "we arent socialists", yet they never try to explain why socialism is a bad thing.
"I happen to be a proponent of a single-payer health care plan" - Obama
"By the way, Canada did not start immediately with a single payer system. They had a similar transition step. " - Obama
.. and if the major beneficiary of the policies of that 'socialist' benefited Wall Street more than actual people .. how was that person ever considered to be a socialist in the first place?
I'm a socialist .. Obama is not and never has been.
Socialists aren't warmongers for the MIC.
If Obama was a socialist, Medicare for All would be the law of the land, nor Romneycare.
But no honest definition can Obama be remotely considered to be a socialist .. no matter what the meme says.
The source of disagreement is that partisans stretch words to mean whatever they want it to mean.

Since the Left bitches about the way the Right uses socialism, I'll put it another way. He is absolutely a collectivist, and hates the way this country achieved its status through rugged individualism; so he aims to change that through a social justice agenda, to correct all his perceived unfairnesses. Those unfairnesses were primarily imposed on minorities by whites, which is why I consider him a political racist. He perceives all things poltical in terms of race.
