You’re Both Socialists!

October 18, 2008

Today, John McCain called Obama’s economic policies “socialist.”  Supposedly, being a called “socialist” is much worse than being called a liberal.  Personally, I don’t care because when McCain paints Obama as a socialist, he has nothing to prove how he’s NOT a socialist either.

Both Obama and McCain supported the $700 billion Wall Street Bailout, which is socialism at it’s finest.  Since when is the central government buying stakes in private banks capitalism?  The Federal Government also has stakes in Fannie and Freddie, and AIG, the world’s largest insurer.  So not only does the central government have a role in our finances, but they also have a role in our housing and insurance.  The only thing left is for them to take over the ability for us to cloth and feed ourselves.  At least then I wouldn’t have to work!

McCain needs to differentiate himself, and calling his opponent a socialist isn’t going to cut it.  All it does is add another negative approach to his campaign.  So far he has painted Obama as a socialsit terrorist… what’s next?

So, while Obama might be more liberal than McCain, they both favor big government.  We need real choices between candidates with real differences.

You might say that we don’t have a choice, but it’s because we haven’t demanded a choice.  If we demand politicians that follow the Constitution and limited government, we will have that choice.  There is definite momentum behind the Constitution and leaders like Ron Paul.  Now is the time we need to make our voices heard.  We need less government, less taxes, no nation building and more freedom and liberty.
