Rand Paul, a to-be candidate for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016, told a radio show Tuesday he believes President Barack Obama is trying to “transform America into a socialist nightmare.” This is a standard rallying cry from the far right, even if it’s rarely laid out in such plainspoken language by a mainstream politician. The United States of America, it goes, is becoming a socialist hellhole.
But here’s the problem: The numbers don’t back that up. Instead, they reveal an America that is running away from a “socialist” anything.
As President Obama enters the final half of his last term, he has left us with an America that conservatives should love.
