Name a socialist policy of Obama. Can you define socialism? The fact is, Obama would be considered far right in most western democracies – but the American political landscape is tilted so far right that a man who has only slightly deviated from the far right policies of his predecessor, a “Bush lite”, can apparently be labelled a socialist. The reality is that America’s politics seem to be sliding closer to fascism than socialism – and looking at countries like Norway, which can lay claim to to at least being social-democratic, if not socialist, they have produced a society of enviable health and services – and have a government savings fund of over 600 billion, which means their government can largely be run off the interest. Sounds like those “socialists” know how to turn a tidy profit.
