Obama’s war for socialism.

Diana West explains what a lot of us have known, but not articulated nearly so well.  This is a sobering outline of how arrogant, irrational, unfeeling and gangsterish this administration truly is.

Toward the end of the article, there’s this: a discussion of why we’d better start recognizing and defining exactly what we are dealing with in this power grabbing government.

But there exists a potent taboo against the S-word and other terminology essential for analysis. Jeb Bush’s aversion to the term is typical. “Is Obama a socialist?” Tucker Carlson recently asked him in Esquire magazine.
Bush said he didn’t know, and called the president a “collectivist.” Same difference? Perish the thought. “Socialism is pejorative in America,” Bush explained. “So people stop listening. People are tired of it. That word won’t stick. It’s a turnoff. It doesn’t help.”
“It’s a turnoff”? It had better not be a turnoff. Because if we don’t talk about it, we won’t think about it — until it’s too late.
