    Default Socialism is in the air!

    DENVER ? With the price of gas approaching $4 a gallon, more commuters are abandoning their cars and taking the train or bus instead.

    Funny, you learn something new everyday. Mass transit is socialist. Who woulda thought.

    Any American who sends their kids to a public school is practising socialism to a degree .

    As MOJO said on one post -everyone should read Frederick Nietshke [sp]and how Hagellian dialectics play such an important and encompassing role in our lives , whether we realize it or not . Thesis-anti-thesis -synthesis . The model never stops.

    Heck, everyone who collects a social security check, has a medicare or medicaid card, gets government subsidized loans or grants for tuition, has an FHA loan, a welfare check etc. is practicing socialism to one degree or another.

    EXACTLY-yet tell someone they are practicing socialism and they start jumping up and down going all mental and stuff .
    That is why I posted that excerpt from Patton's diary -he was there and putting this down in his diaries shows Europe the wat it truly was at the end of ww2-not some historian's watered down view .

    T-W...that is true, except the drive-by media won't tell anyone. The Euros also lowered corporate tax rates to 20 to 25% and flattened the individual tax rates. Some countries went to a flat rate (may Russia, and several others) and tax revenues are exploding as a result. And yet -- in the United States, I can hear the distant drum beat of socialism and 'fair' taxes. We have the 2nd highest corporate tax in the world (35 to 39 percent), and a very progressive tax rate at the individual level. They want it more progressive.....
