    Obama will be impeached in the first year

    If you think about it Socialism started as soon as the bailout was passed, government run business. I don't think that he had anything to do with that?

    • It is a phony scare tactic to talk about government assistance as socialism. We have had a mixed economic system for a long time.

      In the mid 19th century, Congress gave the railroads huge tracts of land alongside their rights of way to promote construction.Earlier, states had assisted the private building of inland canals. Congress fostered the development of the airplane industry with mail contracts. It has been lavish with its help to the oil industry with the oil depletion allowance and other goodies. There are other examples but i think I have said enough so that you should see that that there is no real departure from what has been done in the past if the government seeks to help improve things, especially in times of great stress.
