Bill O'Reilly Asks "Are You a Socialist?"; Cites Poll Showing 53% of Dems have Positive View of Socialism - Video
Here is video of Bill O'Reilly last night doing his "Talking Points Memo," where he asked the question "Are you a Socialist?"
He cited a shocking Gallup Poll which found that 36% of Americans have a positive view of "Socialism," and a whopping 53% of Democrats! O'Reilly defined "Socialism" as "the exact opposite of "Capitalism":
"Socialism says the government has the right to control/and or seize private property and regulate the distribution of goods."
"In other words," O'Reilly said, "the government has all the power and you have none."
O'Reilly said the Obama Administration has tried to implement some "socialist tenets," but stopped short of calling Obama an outright socialist.
O'Reilly closed by saying "Socialism" has no place in the United States, and he believes Americans will ultimately reject it.
