Socialism: The New Four-Letter Word

What’s the  one label that many on the left shy away from? No, it’s not Liberal, and it’s not Progressive. But call someone  a socialist and you might as well have grabbed a silver cross and shoved it in the face of Dracula. The Left spit and sputter and start screaming protesting against the word.

Gone are the days when liberals actually believed that Government didn’t have the right to listen in on phone calls. Gone are the days when liberals thought taking from one’s  401K was wrong. Gone are the days when liberals believed that free enterprise was not the greedy monster of capitalism but a job where one could retire at. Gone are the days when liberals believed that Wall Street was the thermometer of the economy instead of being the greedy ogre that sapped our economy.

Now what exists is the fine line between liberalism and socialism and sometimes it’s hard to tell which one is which. But when you see names flung around like Saul Alinksy, the stench of Marxism becomes even stronger. And when you see groups like the SEIU supporting Obama, it gets even worse.

Liberals scream that they are not socialists. If so, then please explain the difference?

“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism, but under the name of liberalism they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program until one day America will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened” – Norman Thomas, 1948

  1. Socialism = “We The People”

  2. According to Andy Stern of the SEIU, it sure is. Remember “Workers of the world unite?”
