It would help if you knew what a “socialist” really is. There is a actual real world definition, and it does not mean someone who disagrees with you. When people within the GOP are labeled Socialists you lose all credibility. The term just becomes an insult without meaning. There is a healthy divergent opinion within the GOP that stretches from right to slight left of center( US context), but socialist is not one of them. So when you throw that term around loosely, you indicate a certain lack of knowledge on history and politics. If you argue that Romney is a more liberal leaning Republican, conservative Democrat like, that is fair and measured. But to yell Socialist just makes fair people roll their eyes, and think they are having a political discussion with a nutter.
Romney is a socialist. He backed Obamas TARP, he backs national healthcare, oh wait!, Romney wants to impose it at state level in order to by-pass the Constitution. Romney has stated that he thinks more government money may be needed to bolster the economy. Romney also passed Cap and Trade in Massachusetts. Yup. That’s socialism. And he wants to share his view with all of America.
Ain’t that the truth!
