We Are All Socialists NowThe image to the left is Newsweek’s latest cover. Unlike Obama, Newsweek is openly admitting the Socialist path of this country is rapidly following. However where they have it wrong is that it is the liberals, led by Obama, who are attempting to quietly guide us to a Socialist system using the names of “stimulus” and “American recovery and reinvestment”.

Granted, Bush stupidly started us down this path, with TARP and Medicare drug benefits. However, Obama’s supposed “stimulus” bill is designed to create an unprecedented new level of permanent and sustained government expansion and new level of dependence on welfare, and hence the government. Furthermore, within the next day or two Tim Geitner will announce TARP II and other government expansions into the private sector (Update: Geitner has announced up to another $1,000,000,000,000 for TARP! But hey, what’s another TRILLION when the government owns more and more industry?) . So no matter how much Newsweek, though I appreciate their openness about our move toward Socialism, attempts to blame Bush, Obama’s actions speak otherwise.

If Obama did not believe in the United States of America becoming a Socialist state, he would reverse Bush’s Socialist policies. However, Obama is taking advantage of his vast popularity to expand his Socialist agenda with an unprecedented amount of vigor. Sadly, there appears to be no end in sight as our society seems to have forgotten what personal responsibility is and desires the government to take care of their every need.
