AIN'T THAT AMERICA?

Quote:
Socialism has been the buzzword for "evil" for quite a while. It really came to the fore when Barack Obama began campaigning for President.

All the while, the attacks were filled with ignorance. Wall Street doesn't understand Socialism. Paul Braun can't tell the difference between Nazism and Marxism. But the meme has spread. Socialism = evil.

This ignorance even struck last week as protesters compared health care reform to the Holocaust.

And during that "press conference", one of the protesters suffered a heart attack and 10 government medical personnel arrived to save his life. Socialized medicine is awful...right?

As I noted before:


According to the Future of Freedom Foundation, any government-owned, -funded, or -subsidized operation is considered to be a socialist program.


In America, there are many things that would fall under this definition:

*publicly owned airports
*sports arenas
*public schools
*public parks
*public libraries
*fire departments
*police departments
*government-funded universities
*Social Security
*interstate highways

Wanna jettison all those?
