Some call it Socialisim
when a community comes together to improve their community by, say, building roads and bridges, establishing a police force and a fire department, inspecting food and produce to insure that the corporations are not spiking our meat with antifreeze or our produce with Botulisim, putting in sewer systems so we are not dumping our bedpans on the street every morning, apparently, this is called Socialisim. I have always called it The American Way. Something is seriously wrong here when the business ethics of China or Somolia are held up as an example of how we should govern our country. I just don't get it. I seriously doubt that Christ, if he existed, would get it either.

3. The RW response of course, would be that China is in fact "communist"
Edited on Sun Apr-24-11 10:55 PM by AlabamaLibrul
what a fucking joke. It's the wet dream of every wannabe 21st century slave-holder Ayn Rand freak over there, and apparently the wet dream of many legislators in Washington for America to become China.

10. almost nobody calls that socialism
except the far left that wants to say any government action is socialism in order to pretend like everybody is in favor of socialism.

The silent thread in SUPPORT of socialism just got something like 250 votes, which is pretty bodacious in these parts.

Now people are trying to pretend they are NOT in favor of socialism, but are instead in favor of the American way. Well, which is it?

12. Good question what is the "American Way".
Edited on Mon Apr-25-11 10:51 PM by OffWithTheirHeads
Is it "fuck everybody else, I've got mine. ?" or is it " we have a society that needs to cooperate for the greater good?' Personally, I have, at the moment, enough that I would be willing to sacrifice a bit more to insure that those that do not have enough have more. I will freely admit that that I have more than I need and I am willing to share my excess with those that don't have enough. Does this make me a socialist? I'm pretty sure it does not make me a contemperary "Christian"
