Are we entering socialism? Does America even know?
"Claims of "wealth redistribution" and "class warfare" aside, it's worth noting that Obama's much-attacked health care plan is based around private enterprise -- not around government control of the means of production."
Completely bogus. European statism which certainly is collectivism/socialism allows private enterprise which is directed by a political elite, naively assumed to be working in the general or social interest.
The general American understand socialism more in the above definition. As we use communism to expressed Merrian Websters now clearly out of date definition as commonly used.
Word games do not cover the reality. Obamacare is sold as government directed but the end point of most Progressives is single payer or full government control. So they have a perverse incentive to see Obamascare fali.
Obama has stated to his Union cronies that his ultimate goal is Single Payer, which would eventually drive private insurers out of business. He estimates this will take 10 to 15 years. Based on his track record and his ramming Obamacare down our throats, anyone who believes otherwise is either deceiving himself or has his head in the sand. If you listen closely, he always says what he plans to do.
