"Obama is such a Marxist!"

"Really? What part of his policy do you think is Marxist?"

"All of it!"

"Could you be more specific?"

"He wants to take away our guns!"

"You do know that Karl Marx never wrote a thing about gun control."

"Well Stalin took away everyone's guns."

"So did Hitler. So did Franco. So did Pinochet. And Pinochet launched a coup against a Socialist administration."

"So..."

"So taking away guns isn't a Marxist thing, it's a gun control thing. And besides, Obama has done the least to restrict guns since Carter. What other Marxist things is Obama doing?"

"He wants to take MY money away from me - and give it to poor people!"

"I do too - but that doesn't mean I'm doing it. Taxes haven't been lower since FDR, and the welfare program was pretty much gutted, by Clinton, a Democrat."

"He's a Muslim!"

"And that's Marxist?"

"It means he's against America."

"Let's stick to the issue at hand, OK? Obama's Marxist, or lack thereof. How is he Marxist."

"All I know is he hates America!"

And at this point, I shake my head and walk off....

1. Yep

I've found that most of the people who say Democrats are socialists or Obama is a socialist don't even know what socialism is. Obama is probably about as pro-business as you can get for a Democrat. A small percentage of Democrats are socialists, but they don't have any control within the party.
