The buzz word these days is socialism!
National health care = socialism
Obama = socialism
The end of the world is coming!!!
Of course, there are those who have launched their attacks on capitalism. Apparently, capitalism has become the root of all evil. Lack of government regulation leads to all things bad. Supposedly the mortgage crisis was the result of a lack of regulation. However, it was the change in the regulation a decade and a half ago that caused it. It wasn’t a total free market that caused it. Just like the “deregulation” of the energy industry in CA… That didn’t cause the problems. It wasn’t capitalism that caused those problems. It was the government.
To be sure, all socialized programs are not a bad thing. Not that any of us were alive back during pre-revolution times, but we didn’t have an Army. There was no Navy. No Marines. Not even a Coast Guard until the great Alexander Hamilton made it happen.
The socialist organizations listed above are paramount to American security. There are several other social programs that are important to the the well being of America:
- Police Departments
- Fire Departments
- Public Schools
- Public Highways (although I do believe there should be more toll roads, but even toll roads are socialist)
There are countless others (even at the state level). I’m feeling lazy today, so I’m not going to build an exhaustive list.
However, it is important to note that governments by nature are socialist. Should your Congressman/woman collect payment from taxpayers, they are a socialist. This makes President Obama a socialist. He receives his paycheck from taxpayers. The Senators and Congress members supported by Rush Limbaugh are socialists if they receive taxpayer funds.
