The opponents of Obama consider him as socialist. But, the actual socialists do not call him as socialist. This is the opinion of Billy Wharton who is the co-chairman of socialist party in USA. He says that Obama is neither a socialist nor a liberal. Obama was described by other socialists as the one who safeguards the wealth of the top five richest people of America. Democratic socialism involves protecting common man from unregulated capitalism by the rules and taxation.
Since about 50 years socialist revolutions are fighting with the capitalism in United States. The socialists were trying hard to transform this nation into socialist country. But, several Americans were not ready to accept this while Barrack Obama was supported by the young people in this regard. Obama said that everyone in the US has the right to get Health care. This opinion of Obama is also the major belief of Socialist Party in USA. The labor unions were given permission to organize without a secret ballot which was also strongly believed by the Socialist party.
The socialist party in USA visualizes the need for having right for everyone to have adequate house. Obama was observed to have suggested the ACORN (association of community organization for reform now) workers to arrange for mortgages that have enough security. This was told to be given for the sufficient number of people who were unqualified. Socialist party in USA thinks that socialism does not go hand in hand with capitalism at any time. Obama has worked in Annenberg challenge along with Bill Ayers to propose $5 million for education projects on anti-capitalism. Socialist party has supported the six months residency as the necessity for citizenship in US. Obama has also supported the illegal immigrants in Chicago standing for comprehensive immigration amendment. When socialist party wanted the US troops to immediately move away from Iraq, Obama was ready to end the war irrespective of failure or victory. Obama also supported disarmament suggested by the socialists and also encouraged ‘livable guaranteed annual income,. Obama also promised to elevate the tax burden on the rich, to balance the wealth towards the poor.
These are some of the evidences to say that Obama is a socialist.
