I always thought the basic premise of socialism was the state owned the means of production.

How the hell can the public financing of education be socialism?

Education has nothing at all to do with producing a good or service. It is something the community at large funds for the common good of the community. Like parks or roads, only much more important, because we are raising the next generation.

I hope some day some Democrat will have the guts to stand up to these 1950's paranoid scare tactics by the right and expose it for what it is, nonsense!
