Many people seem to think that Barack Obama is a socialist.

And, by the way, what does option mean?

Roland,

I am not sure that I am ready to call President Obama socialist, but will say that his big central government views would at the very least allow me to call him a Progressive.

As to the rest of your list, you may be stretching a point on some of the items in asking the question. One at least however we know is not socialism. Social Security is in fact a government run ponzi scheme.

Tim,
Thanks for your comments.

In regards to "you may be stretching a point on some of the items in asking the question., I'm not so sure that it is an unrealistic stretch on my part. None-the-less, I did ask as opposed to profess, proclaim, or state others have alleged. They are all food for thought, IMHO, when one considers the label of socialism.

In regards to "Social Security is in fact a government run ponzi scheme.", my initial response was and is ROFLMAO all the while realizing that you have made a very legitimate analogy. Thanks for a perspective worthy of a thinking mind.
