Things are moving so fast that it is really hard to keep up. Being 43 I am coming to the conclusion that I will only be getting older and that eventually I will be unable to keep up and or care about most stuff.
But until then here goes...
Is Obama and the government going socialist???
Well if by "socialist" you mean actually trying to help people then I guess the answer is yes. I think for me and almost all of America that is just fine. Since the people who are using the term "socialist" are so whacked out to the right that they think ANY form of government is socialist.
This goes back to what I truly believe and that is that conservatives are not really what they say they are. They think they are conservative but they are really anarchists. Their "its every man for himself" attitude is the epitome of anarchism.
For my part I hardly consider Obama any kind of a socialist. He is not pushing a single payer health care system (something I want) nor is he really helping labor. But he is at least moving the nation in the right direction as far as regaining our power, influence, stature, authority, and future greatness.
The American "right" is very wrong. They are on the wrong side of history, and have been since the founding of the republic. They have done nothing but hold America back. The best that can be said of them is that they have held America back so that the progressive engine doesn't shake the country apart. They are the motor-mount that holds the engine to the frame of the American machine.
If you ask a motor-mount what the engine should do it would probably say that the engine should shut down since that would make the motor-mounts job a lot easier. However that would not allow the American machine to work.
