So do you want our children to grow up with no options or knowlegde to make their own choices about their personal political stance? What if in a socailist world we denied people from learning about capitalism? It's a personal choice. And to quote Alan Moore “Knowledge, like air, is vital to life. Like air, no one should be denied it.” To deny someone the right to learn and make their own decisions is only going to result in a fascist dictatorship.
Also you can not honestly, HONESTLY claim to know what EVERY GOD DAMN PERSON IN AMERICA WANTS!? I know for a fact that some people do WANT socialism.
And I think that making a joke about molestation (also a WRONG accusation) is disgusting.
I always thought that socialism is a economic system, maybe I'm wrong here. Please state one socialistic economic system that Obama personally has implemented. Obamacare is radically evil, not socialism. If Obamacare is socialism then so are laws that require people to have car insurance in order to drive. Driving is no longer a privilege, it is a necessity for anyone who has to go to work every day.
What are cooperative enterprises if not the basis of socialism? Aren't churches cooperative enterprises? Charities?
Wait loosely... isn't medicare and social security socialistic programs where all of us take direct ownership of it via agreed upon taxation? Or can we think about those as just taxes that go to specific places that the legislation body has dictated. And we are powerful to change.
Isn't public education for everyone a socialist ideology? Everyone's money goes to it and everyone benefits from it, or do they?
Direct public ownership... isn't that socialism? Is a non-private park socialism? Are non-private roads socialism?
The serious take home message is this: Parents, don't let your children see there are other ideas out there, please keep them totally ignorant to this fact and you will have good children. Wow, makes me want to puke.
Oh wait, is she arguing to the police officer who is not directly paid by a private organization to uphold the peace. Maybe it is a rent-a-cop. The police are publicly owned aren't they, they serve and protect the USA?
What about people who say they are socialists. Who openly admit they are socialists. I have a few profs that were openly socialists (at SDSU). They completely agreed on what is socialism.
"Not sure our ed system is a point in your favor." What the heck is my "favor", do you think I'm trying to say you are wrong for something? I was alluding to established socialistic norms in our system that exist, and for some reason Republicans (who hate socialism) are okay with.
I understand completely why conservatives hate socialism and why they love free enterprise. I just find it hypocritical that we accept forms of socialism, but say we hate it!
