Jindal: Obama And Clinton Put US On ‘Path Toward Socialism’

July 6, 2015 9:32 a.m.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) on Sunday said that President Obama and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton have pushed their socialist ideals on the country.

“I’m running [for president] because I want to stop President Obama and Secretary Clinton from turning the American dream into the European nightmare,” he said on the John Catsimatidis radio show, according to The Hill. “We are on the path toward socialism. It’s not too late but the hour is late.”

Jindal urged his fellow Republican presidential candidates to whole-heartedly push conservative ideals during the primary.

“I disagree with Jeb Bush. He said we have to be willing to lose the primary to win the general election. Let me translate — he’s saying we need to hide our conservative ideas,” he said, according to The Hill.

“If we do that, we’re going to lose again,” Jindal continued. “Let’s endorse our own principles and fight for what we believe in.”

Numerous conservatives have labeled the President a socialist in the past. Former Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) claimed in 2013 that he was the first to call the President a socialist. Both former Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) and Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) have also accused Obama of pushing socialism in the U.S.
