Carol--and WHY do you call the President "Marxist?" I think you and a lot of others have just been brainwashed by the GOP into using these words -- communist, marxist, socialist -- as smear words, without knowing their meaning.
Since Karl Marx proposed "From each according to his ability, to each according to his need," no society in the world has been Marxist, including Russia. It's never really worked. And socialism means taking over the means of production -- as if the government had taken over the auto industry instead of loaning them money so they could stand on their own. Even having health care doesn't make us socialized.
