Socialization Of Our Country

Is this really what we've come to? Is this what you hoped for when you pulled the lever for Barack Obama? In this video from last year, Congresswoman Maxine Waters actually uses the word "socialize" when referring to her position on the oil companies. She then explicitly states that the government should take over the oil industry. Right, we want the government running private sector industries.

I looked up the word "communism" in the Merriam-Webster online dictionary and the first definition that came up is "a theory advocating elimination of private property". Someone please explain the difference to me between that definition and what Waters advocates to do with the oil industry.

Folks, we are smack dab in the middle of the "de-Americanization" of this country. We all better take a good, hard look at the direction we're heading. When our elected leaders start using words like "socializing" and "nationalizing" private industries, it had better come as a serious reality check to everyone, regardless of your political affiliation.

And I would guess that she would happy with a one party system too.
