The label “Socialist” is being resurrected by certain age group who were around during the 1950’s. The rest of the chatter is from people who have no clue whatsoever on what they are talking about. These nostalgic group of people have been indoctrinated to use socialism as a tool to induce fear.
Conveniently, socialism has been used in the past to associate any alternative view just so that a political gain could be made. It worked effectively during those days in destroying any one’s reputation by just spreading actual or phantom rumors. It looks like those old tricks are being sought against Obama in hopes of garnering support against his administration.
I doubt socialism will be able to ever make a comeback, because the ideology is proven dead by even the most ardent socialists. However, it looks like that some angry elements are bent to destroy Obama until proven wrong. In time they will be drowned by their own babble; and fade away for lack of proof. Now days, we should be fearful of tea-baggers who have no coherent stand on any social, economical, nor political views.
