    If Obama has anything to do with capitalism the word must be accompanied by prefix "crony."
    Dr. Paul is on point about socialism in specific and collectivism in general is, by necessity, authoritarian. My son put it best in response to an economist who said, "As an economic system I prefer socialism, but that's just me."
    My son protested, "No, no, that's just the problem with it. It's not just you. You can't do your socialism without forcing me into the system. But I can do free markets without coercing you in the least. You're for a system of slavery and masters."
    From the mouths of babes.

    Bush not a fascist, but Obamas a socialist? Leave it to Fox to defend Bush. *sigh..

    they're both puppets to the plutocracy. It is a combo of Corporatism and AuthoritarianSocialism.

    I'd like to know where those 39% have been. Those are the Loyal Lemmings, but their numbers are dwindling. Thank Goodness.

    Obama is not a socialist. He is a fascist! Fascism, communism, fascism are all isms made up by the ruling elite to hoodwink the masses and the intelligentsia. Obama is working for the bankers which really makes him a fascist.

    Obama is a rat, give it a name. he wants to protect the illegals while they break into our country, and guarantee that no unemployed black males will ever find work in this country. how could he possibly has any support in the Black community. Blind prostitutes in Kansas City can see what this rat is, why cant the fools who elected him?

    And I strongly believe it's because of Ron Paul and the grassroot movement he's inspired that's allowed the american people to hear enough information to propely label him. He's not a progressive, he is not an enviromentalist... he's a socialist/facist/corporatist or whatever (distinctions minimal). In any case he's really an authortarian. He believes in "orcherstrating" a better life for people instead of giving them the ability to decide for themselves.

    There is no doubt that philosophically, Obama's values are toward a Marxist ideology.

    They're poor, because the only way for most people to survive is to become a peg, or a cog in the wheel of the machine. Poor people might not be able to get the education they need to persue their dreams, or they might be told that self-education is not credible, that they need a fancy piece of paper to be able to convince people of their skill, talent, and passion. America has already adopted the 10 planks of the Communist Manifesto.

    The fact is that the Bill of Rights amended both the Commerce and General Welfare clauses to end ambiguity in those parts of the original Constitution.

    The Bill of Rights exists because our Founders realized that ambiguity requires interpretation which leads to tyranny because power naturally concentrates and corrupts so our natural rights needed protection from unlimited gov't.

    When politicians and the courts interpret law instead of simply applying law, citizens ALWAYS lose liberty!

    We do NOT have a seperation of church and state. The State ALWAYS stops the free exercise of religion whenever possible.

    "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;..."

    Progressive-Socialists worship the State and the State hates competition!

    "Maybe I did well and maybe I led the battle but nobody ever said we were going to win this thing at any point in time. Eternal vigilance is required and there have to be people who step up to the plate, who believe in liberty, and who are willing to fight for it." -- Milton Friedman

    Statists call themselves Liberals/Progressives to fool sheeple into believing that liberalism/progressivism is the same thing as libertarianism/liberty instead of 1890s era socialism ahem.. (anti-progress)

    The US is more economically socialist than China. Who cares about arguing about what you label someone if the economic and social reality is characterised by red tape, monopolistic industry leaders and welfare from cradle to grave. The government hand has never worked better than the free market system and never will.

    Socialistic tendencies are nothing new in the US or Europe for that matter.

    Because the government hand is so entrenched now in the economic and social system I don't see anyway to reverse this trend through election of a president like Ron Paul. It needs a deep crisis where the system collapses to start again from a lower base, and then, it will grow again.

    Republicans are kissing Ron's behind because they realize their 20 billion dollar a month military-industrial entitlement program is coming to an end soon. The resultant debt and raised taxes used to remedy it will stifle business productivity and the ability for businesses to hire all these unemployed workers. The Dems are kissing his behind because they will soon see their social programs, including amnesty for illegals and over-spending on Yolanda's 9th and 10th kids ballooning benefits from cradle to grave, blow up in their faces. Spoiled Repubs will not get their military toys for more wars. Spoiled dems won't get their outrageous union benefits and pensions or checks for their 7th through 12th kids, usually concieved under the weight of unemployment and few prospects for jobs in the forseeable future.

    Obama is a pure Corporatist with Socialistic agendas with using Government to control everything. The last thing we need is a Corporatist, Socialist, nor a Fascist in the white house. Ron Paul is neither the three.

    We have separation of Church and State, how about a separation between Corporation and State (in a limited sense).

    Obama is a Socialist...If not, then he's just an idiot....Some people even believe that he is Islams Manchurian Candidate. I don't believe that anybody voted for him on the basis of his leadership abilities, but rather simply for the color of his skin....I am not racist, I would gladly vote for a black person if they appeal to me. Its obvious that Obama is all talk and no do....All he did was carry out the generic democratic agenda. I believe that he is going to have the reputation of being the worst president in America's history.

    I hope Ron Paul runs for president in 2012. We need him. People are fed up with Obama and the two parties I think Ron Paul really has a chance. People would be more open to what he has to say. However The host and the guy seated next to him are crazy. They act like all republicans are great and bush wasn't as bad as he really was.

    2:35 : "The world has buried in it far more corpses resulting from the envy of socialism than it has from the greed of capitalism."

    The truth in that statement aside, I don't think it's good to make those statements when promoting the merits of capitalism. The reason is that capitalism is not reactionary but inherent. It is not a system that was formed by activism against the shortcomings of human nature, but rather it is nature itself as freedom to choose your way is your natural born right.

    At 74 years of age and 40 years of working patiently to convince Americans to protect their freedoms Ron Paul has broke the smoke screen of the Republican / Democrat divide. Now he can wipe the floor with Obama and lead America to a new dawn in 2012. Dr. Paul we want you to complete the revolution and take over the White House, if only so we can explain to our grandchildren the merits of your values, courage and your heroism.
