A lot of the correspondents on this page use the words 'socialism' and 'communism' as if they are the same thing. Both are left wing political philosophies, but they are not the same thing.

look up 'meanings' in a Dictionary or "Wikipedia".

I have studied every form, from the National Socialist Party of Germany, which morphed into fascism, to Marxism, Leninism, Stalinism, and Maoism.

Personally, Obama himself seems to have aligned himself as a Marxist, but in the general scheme of things I believe the liberal elites in this country are much more like Lenin's Vanguard, ruling over the masses.
