Is Obama A Socialist?

You bet your ass he is. But don't take my word for it. Obama supporters in Minnesota show you all you need to know:

Twenty years ago, hell no, 5 years ago if you told me that the man leading the polls would have supporters hanging signs with the Red Star on it, I would not have believed you. But there it is for all of us to see.

For anyone living in a cave for the last century, The Red Star:

The five-pointed red star, a pentagram without the inner pentagon, is a symbol of communism as well as broader socialism in general. It is sometimes understood to represent the five fingers of the worker's hand, as well as the five continents. A lesser known suggestion is that the five points on the star were intended to represent the five social groups that would lead Russia to communism: the youth, the military, the industrial labourers, the agricultural workers or peasantry, and the intelligentsia. Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels used the red star as a symbol[citation needed]. It was also one of the emblems, symbols, and signals representing the Soviet Union under the rule and guidance of the Communist Party, along with the hammer and sickle. The star has since become a symbol representing socialism of all varieties.

...Are you kidding me?

The five-pointed star is also prominently displayed on such American symbols as our flag. You'll also find red, white, and blue on there.

So, which is more likely: that a red, five-pointed star surrounded by a blue circle is a reference to traditional, American iconography...or that it's a grassroots shout-out to bygone Soviet symbolism?

I go with the latter, N.S.

I'll also go one step further than Texasfred and say Obama is a Marxist.

Stop spinning, The One has already fooled enough people, including yourself, N.S.

Guess what, I woke up yesterday morning and my gas tank wasn't full and my mortgage wasn't paid.

I deserve!!!!damnit. Give ME, ME ME!!!
