Carlos Watson wonders about 'socialist'

I consider myself a Socialist or Socialist-influenced in many aspects -- I don't consider Obama to be a Socialist at all. Carlos Watson is right that "Socialist" is being used these days as a code word of sorts by the right wing which doesn't really discuss Socialism at all but is being used as a boogeyman word to smear Obama. Like a way to say the "N" word without actually saying it. Anyone who knows anything about Socialism would have to be an idiot to label Obama with that label. This is character assasination. I just feel depressed that a whole lot of people are falling for it.
