I continually read editorial describing Obama as a Socialist committed to destroying America and bringing us pure Socialism. The problem as I see it is that most people who think in this vein really have no idea what Socialism is. In my opinion Obama isn't a Socialist. He stands in front of a group of Elitists that have nothing less in mind than Extreme Capitalism with a capital E and that form of capitalism, which we have now, destroys everything in it's path.
There are benefits within every form of government in their purest contexts. Pure Socialism, pure Communism, pure Marxism and pure Capitalism, they all have parts or portions of their tenets that are beneficial to humanity, that is, the proletariat meaning you and me as opposed to the Elite.
So this cartoon struck me as being terribly accurate in describing America and Socialism.

Socialism is sometimes a good thing for all of us.
