Evangelists Uber Alles
As a disciple of Reaganomics, casting Obama as socialist is laughable. Likewise the convicted felon hedge fund trader Soros. As neoliberals, they and Hillary are Free Market evangelists uber alles. Their support for social programs to maintain control of those dispossessed by US Treasury looting and offshore tax evasion should not be confused with socialism. As the anti-union Obama and the anti-democracy Soros join Hillary in neoliberal coups d' etat worldwide, the Free Trade neocolonialism initiated by President Clinton threatens to crush outbreaks of democratic socialism wherever they occur. As Obama pursues privatization of Social Security, the fact he isn't also a religious fanatic provides little comfort.
