Playing the Part of Acting Smart

 

Ron Paul, self-imposed guru of all things truly American, said at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference (SRLC) that Obama is "not a socialist."

Some guy named Chip gives a little assistance with that assertion:

Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary:

socialist
1.an advocate or supporter of socialism.

socialism
1 : any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods
2 a : a system of society or group living in which there is no private property b : a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state
3 : a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done

So, for the record, ol' Ron believes that Obama is a corporatist. You can look up the definition for yourself... suffice it to say that saying such a thing and drawing that distinction might tempt people into thinking you look smart, but one thing is for sure: Obama does not seek to strengthen corporations as a means to re-order society. He's planning to overtake and abolish corporations.

Romney also plays the part of acting smart, and he's proud of himself for RomneyCare. Romney is right about one thing: "[Romney's] argument is a federalist assertion that the new law usurps powers that properly reside with the states." Yep. ObamaCare violates the 10th Amendment. But socializing an industry is not smart. Ever. Even at the state level.

And let's not forget that Romney is the genius who admired Obama's backbone for firing GM's CEO.

Politicians are jackasses. Less is more...
