I can send a link to the article I found that in if you want. So whatever you think about Obama, McCain's hands aren't clean either.
Back to the preposterous socialism claims. Obama isn't the first person who thinks people who have more should pay more. It's not unique, it's not part of some secret socialist agenda. The fact that the rich already pay a higher percentage of taxes tells you all you need to know. Rich people have been taxed for decades and we haven't become a communist workers paradise yet. So what's different about Obama tring to help the middle class than all the other tax legislation through the years?
Meanwhile, if you actually look up what "Socialism" means, instead of just repeating whatever buzz word of the day the right wing wags spit out, you'd see how insane this whole charge is.

So Obama wanting to help struggling middle class families by giving them a tax break is wildly socialist, making him a dangerous commie.
But Palin brags about how the people of alaska 'collectively own the resources' and 'share the wealth' and that's NOT socialist? Seriously? The oil resources are owned by "the people" so when an oil company exploits them, the government mails everyone an equal cut of the profits...that's not socialist?
So why not drop the pointless, nonsensical crap and talk about real policies.
