Is the Income Tax Socialism?

Sarah Palin and John McCain have been claiming that Barack Obama's tax plan is share-the-wealth socialism -- taking your money to give to somebody else.

We have had a progressive income tax system in the United States for a century, with adjustments here or there along the way, and some calls for a flat tax.

Some links on this issue (I'll add a few more to round this out)
