    Remove the teleprompter and you get glimpses of the real Obama. Listen to this conversation yesterday between Obama and a plumber. Link here

    Anyone who doesn't think Obama is a dyed in the wool socialist simply doesn't know what a socialist is.

    Hold onto your wallets and purses America!

    Great. The jobless and welfare people will move in next door to me and I'll be paying for it. Nice. The American way. Sounds like Obama wants to be Robin Hood.

    yes, spread the wealth. If you factor inflation in, 401K's, wages, we all took a huge step back so the rich could get richer.

    Think about the company that cut jobs and wages and then doubled their CEO's pay. It's time that they cut his pay back down to where it was before and spread the other half on us middle class people.

    It's not just the CEO. It's the VP's, which can be a dozen in one company, and the guys right below them, then the guys below them. All of their salaries have doubled. That's why they cut our wages!!!

    It wasn't because the company couldn't afford to pay us what we were making before.

    And it sure wasn't for shareholders. No, the fat cats at the top cut expenses/wages so they could get richer.

    And that's why they send our jobs overseas.

    The company will continue to look for ways to cut costs and they won't stop short of cutting your wages too. If you are voting for McCain, think about that. Is your job immune from outsourcing or hiring an illegal? Maybe you are even a VP somewhere. When some foreign company buys your firm and they replace you with a guy who's supposedly smarter than you and will work for half? Don't come running to us crying.

    Socialism is seizing the means of production and making it state-run.

    Care to quote where Obama has said that?

    God are you people stupid.

    How much has the GOP spent on NO BID Government contracts to their buddies like Motorola, Haloburton, AT&T (letting them spy on us), Blackwater and every other Defense Buddy contract?

    $10 billion a month goes to socialist Halborton & Blackwater, right? Why isn't that socialism? The Free market sure isn't buying their stuff. My tax dollars fund those companies you GOP hypocrites.

    The GOP bankrupted us through socialism, if you mean spending tax dollars on an industry like defense. And lets not forget the $700 billion dollar bailout to the banks.

    That's it. There are 2 possibilities... Either they don't know what it is, or they have never experienced it and flat out don't care.

    Does anyone have any facts as to how many people move to socialist countries vs/ free countries?

    I would bet that there are more people trying to get out of countries like Cuba than trying to get in, but maybe that's just me.
