1. Any of various theories or systems of social organization in which the means of producing and distributing goods is owned collectively or by a centralized government that often plans and controls the economy.
2. The stage in Marxist-Leninist theory intermediate between capitalism and communism, in which collective ownership of the economy under the dictatorship of the proletariat has not yet been successfully achieved.
Barack Obama told a man that he wanted to "spread the wealth" aka redistribute money, which is a socialist policy.
Take from those that work hard for their money when they work hard enough to make XXX amount, and give to those making less and has not worked for the other person's money.
No matter how you cut it, it is socialism and Barack Obama said it on video when he was asked a question.
Sarah Palin has finally called it what it is, at a rally in Ohio:
The remark came at an Ohio rally in which Palin was discussing Joe Wurzelbacher, more commonly known as “Joe the plumber,” who told the Toledo Blade that Obama’s plan to “spread the wealth” was “a pretty socialist comment.”
Palin picked up on Wurzelbacher’s quote on Friday.
“Sen. Obama said that he wants to spread the wealth and he wants government to take your money and decide how to best to redistribute it according to his priorities,” she told the audience.
“Joe suggested that that sounded a little bit like socialism,” she said. “Whatever you call it, I call it bad medicine for an ailing economy, and it's what Barack Obama will do to those who want to create jobs and we're willing to call Barack Obama on it.”
Before that moment Obama hid his intent behind pretty words about helping middle class families, but when Obama was asked a direct question, didn't have his handy teleprompter to give the "pretty" answer, he finally told the truth and said he wanted to "spread the wealth."
Spread your wealth Barack, it is yours, but do not touch our money like some dictator deciding that what WE have worked for should be handed to someone else by you.
The video of Obama saying "spread the wealth" should be blasted on every television from now until election day.
When you rip the mask off of Barack Obama, you find a Marxist/socialist and it is time American voters be made aware of that basic fact.
McCain himself has avoided referring to Obama as a socialist, but he has left the door open to that assumption. In July, he told the Kansas City Star that Obama’s senate record is “more to the left than the announced socialist in the United States Senate, Bernie Sanders of Vermont.”
The GOP nominee was then asked if he believes Obama is a socialist.
“I don’t know,” McCain responded. “All I know is his voting record.”
Exactly, one look at Barack Obama's voting record tells it all and Palin needs to continue pounding that point home as does McCain.
Well said Sarah, KUDOS.
