    Half of American knowingly voted in a socialist president. The first time they may not have realized what he represented, but now he has a record. The other thing is the comments I have read on here. More and more people from the left seem to except socialism. When people fail to appreciate what they have and to protect their rights, they tend to lose them.

    Cloward and Piven Strategy alive and well.

    It took the government of the United States two centuries to rack up its first trillion dollars in debt. Now Washington piles on another trillion every nine months. Forward!

    A divided nation, YES! Many states and many peoples are rising up and saying "I refuse to abide by these wicked Obama laws."

    After Obama's major case of voter fraud on Election Day, you can't even trust the election process now. You can't trust the democrats to listen to the people - I'm talking about Obama-care. You can't trust the courts. You can't trust the media.

    Get your guns folks and don't listen to the UN or the liberals. We're heading for a 2nd Civil War - it's inevitable!

    Should say for a while, The only thing that will save us ,is after the next two years the loons see all the business's shuting down, all the jobs being lost , getting tired of all the panhandlers crawling over their vehicles at every red light, Having their stuff stolen from the drugged out sofa huggers . Seeing the reality of your energy bills really will skyrocket, When the mid term election comes around next time if after seeing whats really going to be their lifestyle I believe they may have a change of heart, College kids will find out its a waste of time and money they are spending to go to college when nothing is going to be there when they are ready to work. Its unbeleivable its going to take this , But the damage is done just have to hang on and get threw it.

    (CampusReform) A group of college students chanted “Karl Marx” and “socialism” while celebrating President Obama’s electoral victory in front of the White House late Tuesday night, a video shot by Campus Reform reveals.

    The raucous group of students chanted “Karl Marx, Karl Marx, Karl Marx,” and cited abortion, socialism, and “Obama phones” as reasons for their support of President Obama’s second term.

    Thousands of college students from across Washington D.C. spontaneously gathered in front of the White House to celebrate President Obama’s reelection.

    Those students were among thousands from colleges across Washington, D.C. who spontaneously gathered in front of fences around the north lawn of the White House to celebrate President Obama’s election victory.

    Students present at the rally told Campus Reform that they were supporting the President for a variety of reasons.

    We're already heavily socialized. The federal and state governments confiscate roughly half the national income already, and regulate heavily the way we use the other half.

    I should add that while some know only Marxist subcategory of socialism, even Marx himself knew that there were other forms. Of course he tended to sneer them, calling them things like "petit bourgeois socialism," but he knew. While Marx called for government ownership of "the means of production," most forms of socialism, historically, have called for private ownership with government regulation, which characterizes most of the roughly half of our national income that the government doesn't already confiscate.

    maybe... but people fear socialism like its a bad thing yet most people dont understand what socialism actually is. i think some socialism can help this country. if its balanced out with capitalism. too much capitalism can be a bad thing too, nobody fears that word as much as they do socialism.

    If you believe that a lion and rabbit can co-exist together then sure, the enormous drain of bloated government spending won't tax companies into failing.. just look at China now.. their economy is falling and they soon will sell out all of their purchased U.S. treasury notes on a margin call to get their money back.. and of course we won't have it to pay.

    Is it a good answer? but does it get the message out? The people in those states still want more. More free benefits. Benefits at the cost of their friend and neighbors
