    President Obama's Push Towards Socialism: is it a myth, or is there proof of it's existence?

    GOP Presidential Hopeful, Richard John "Rick" Santorum has said during campaign appearances that President Obama is pushing the United States 'to the brink of socialism, to the brink of losing our freedom' and Mr. Santorum claims he can 'reclaim our country' back from this brink.

    I have a few serious reservations about this narrative, but what I wonder is how anyone believes this to be true, that we are on the brink of socialism and that Santorum can bring us back.

    I see no proof of this brink or no proof that Santorum could bring the United States back from anything, real or imagined.

    If any conservatives, right wingers, and anyone else here who is dissatisfied with Obama believes any of this, they need to offer proof in order to convince a majority of would be voters to buy into this narrative.

    "Where's the beef?" Try proving something right here and now.

    For Republicans "socialism" is any money spent on the non wealthy.

    But many of the programs or parts of the programs Obama has pushed have been Republican ideas or proposals not too long ago.

    :eusa_hand:

    I went to three links you provided. The links back up (as far as you are concerned) your view that Obama 'was' somehow a socialist. One proof/fact is that Obama attended a socialist conference.

    I've attended Republican conferences, and business conferences, and public health conferences, and Democratic conferences.., :eusa_whistle:

    Your other proofs are similar in nature.

    Maybe you had trouble comprehending my questions? I ask for proof that Obama, according to Santorum and others, has brought the United States to the brink of socialism. I also ask about the claim that if this were so, where the proof is that Santorum could bring the United States bank from this alleged brink. ___ You've so far addressed neither of these issues, let alone offered proof that either has a factual basis.

    Want to try again?

    Is Obama pushing for socialism? Yes.

    Will big government republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum push for the policies needed to curtail federal spending? Well, he claimed in favor of TARP, among other big gubmint habits so the answer is an obvious no. Rick's platform is all about trying to bring in the religious and beat the neocon war drum for more invasions.

    How dare Obama invent Medicare and Social Security. How dare he invent clean water and air laws. And what are these public roads and public schools I keep hearing about? Down with the commie!

    Santorum will get elected and God will fix it all. The true believers will prosper while the infidels will burn.

    Why would a left-winger like you have a photo of H.L. Mencken as your avatar?

    H.L Mencken despised everything liberals believe in.

    What proof do you offer that President Obama is pushing for socialism?

    If Richard Santorum were elected President and he was pushing to curtail federal spending that would be proof there the US was on the brink of socialism and he was bringing US back from the brink?

    :eusa_eh:

    Want to try again? I would really like somebody to be able to seriously explain the narrative with proofs of claims.
