Discuss political cartoons on the phrase “what sick socialist bastard would like to provide free health care to the poor”
The words state “what sick socialist bastard
would like to provide free health care to the poor.” This is an ironic statement. First and
foremost, America is not a socialist state. Thus referring to Obama as a socialist is representing
the opposite. However, let’s take a step back and understand the elements of Socialism.
Socialism’s key element is the communal ownership of property. Socialism does not propound for
state ownership of property. In a socialist community, there is no class stratification. All people
are equal and have equal rights to the property. In such a community there are no poor people who
need help. In fact, that is why socialist countries are said to be poor They do not encourage self-enrichment at the detriment of others.
