The ROAD to Socialism

I see a lot of confusion about the term socialism.  To separate fact from fiction, truth from myth, I offer the following.  There are 20 variants of Socialism.  In its pure sense it does mean non profit driven control of production by the government representing "The People".  We are currently on the track of one variant of Socialism and that is what concerns many since it is a departure of what made this nation the most productive, profitable, land of opportunity in the world.  The Social Democracy variant is a political ideology that considers itself to be a form of reformist democratic socialism. Whether stated or not, it is a path for peaceful, evolutionary transition of society from capitalism to socialism.[2] It asserts that the only acceptable constitutional form of government is representative democracy under the rule of law (Lawyers sort of become the ruling class).[3] It promotes extending democratic decision-making beyond political democracy to include economic democracy to guarantee employees and other economic stakeholders sufficient rights of co-determination.[4] Common social democratic policies include advocacy of universal social rights to attain universally-accessible public services such as: education, health care, workers' compensation, and other services including child care and care for the elderly.[5] Social democracy is connected with the trade union labour movement and supports collective bargaining rights for workers. Obama and his administration are not pure socialists.  However, assertions to that effect are partially correct because of the Social Democracy variant.  Any questions?  Remember I am a consultant and it is my job to be thorough, honest, and factual even if the truth is unsettling at times.  I am sort of a messenger, so don't kill the messenger :)
