    He's a socialist only in the "cents" that a corporatist is!

    :wink2:

    Like so many of our Presidents of the last 100 years plus and more in keeping especially with the legacy of Clinton and then Bush, Obama really is a Third Way politician and always has been.

    " Because the Third Way most commonly uses market mechanics and private ownership of the means of production; and in that sense it is fundamentally capitalist. It does not incorporate any of the economic theory that would stretch beyond already existing social democracy, which many on the left already see as capitalistic."

    I agree with you, but Third Way is just way to cheapen that capitalist gloss with varying ideologies and flip flopping when persuasion is on the hook.

    nouna political and economic theory of social organization that advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.• policy or practice based on this theory.• (in Marxist theory) a transitional social state between the overthrow of capitalism and the realization of communism.


    There is little doubt that Obama advocates socialism so you can lose the question mark.

    Yeah. The Teamsters are nothing but an arm of Marxist sedition with all their "worker rights" and "benefits". Scott Davis would love to see this become a predominant public sentiment.

    Once you are a full fledged member, you can donate blood and get a free Lenin tat, both at the hall. Really good deal.
