These companies will or may benefit from stimulus money. Are they all betraying America's capitalist values?

Are they all helping to usher in socialism in America? If so, will you now and forever stop using their products and services? Including the computer operating system you're probably using right now? :)

    GREAT QUESTION:

    We are going to by military means destroy the legislative and judicial branches and Obama is going to take over the country in a power grab we have not seen in 230 years and socialism will be ushered in. LOL

    I say, give it a rest. We will NEVER BE SOCIALIST, IT CANT BE DONE. I wish people actually knew the DEFINITION

    The stimulus, like the bailouts, is not about socialism but rather about state-supported capitalism. This is worse than socialism. Under this plan, we pay for everything and get nothing. Theoretically, under socialism, we own everything and do not pay trillions and trillions to corporations to get out of the mess that they got us into.

    Obama is not a Robin Hood. He's a reverse Robin Hood. He is stealing from the workers and giving trillions to the rich. He's not a socialist. He's a complete fraud.

    Pay close attention: Obama is not a socialist. He's much worse. He is stealing from you and me and giving our money to the rich. The claims that he's a socialist actually provide cover for him as he robs us for the financial oligarchy. Don't call him that, because it allows him to rob us more easily.
