Is it "preposterous" to regard Mr. Obama as a socialist?

In my 2008 post I was responding to specific words uttered by Mr. Obama.  I am not claiming that Mr. Obama wants to "nationalize" anything, at this point, except health care.  He is on record for favoring a single-payer system, and that is, effectively socialism, is it not?  Jumping to the present, the Affordable Care Act is a form of economic fascism, as practiced by Mussolini and Hitler.  Private citizens are permitted to own enterprises, but they are effectively controlled by the government.  That is the very definition of fascism, or "crony capitalism."  It's form may be capitalistic, but the government actually controls the property.
