Jonah wrote a great book called "Liberal Fascism." In it he relates a brief history of Marxism, Socialism and the Fascism of Benito Mussolini's Fascist Party. Mr. Obama IS an ideological Marxist. However, he realizes that turning the United States into a pure Communist State is impossible, at least in the short term. People will not stand for the government owning the means of production, and being the sole controller of the economy; so he chooses the middle ground of Fascism, which is merely satisfied with the control (through regulations, and taxes) of businesses. He also, like the Fascist President Bill Clinton wants a government/private business partnership (Fascism). There is too much information to place in a comment.
