American Socialism

True or false?

12 comments:

  1. 7. Many in America decry Government telling businesses how to operate, calling instead for free markets. And then support price subsidies for farm and agricultural interests.

    1. And many don't! Like those of us who have decried subsidizing tobacco and the people it kills. Whether it's sending money to the welfare queens of the urban core or the welfare kings of ADM - we're agin' it!

    2. Bay... it's a shame we don't hear those words from more on the conservative side of the ledger.

      I know the left opposes the subsidies because they want the $$$ for other projects, but I've always wondered why the GOP, et al, just aren't philosophically against it, or more open to speaking against them.

      Maybe it is just votes on both sides...

  2. It's way more than half the country that is subsidized... and it ain't just the people Romney infamously fingered.

    Apolitical corporations and global financial behemoths with no loyalty whatsoever to the US are feeding at the trough

  3. Silver, that is exactly true... and it is on both sides. That's why I don't get why for the most part, the GOP gets a pass from many conservatives on this issue.

    Everyone, it seems, likes their subsidies, most not your subsidies!

    Unrelated... I can't for the life of me get Disqus to send me the confirming email to comment at your site. Just an FYI... unless of course you've deemed me unworthy...

    1. You are always welcome at Western Hero!

      You shouldn't need any confirming e-mail. You should be able to pick the option in the comment block to comment as a non-DISQUS user.

    2. Could it be because you are a Obama apologizing kook aide drinking Bush Blaming BS artist?

  4. I'm still trying to understand the POV that can classify Obama and Hillary as socialist. Seems that any manifestation of the social welfare state has the right conditioned to scream, socialist.

    Pretty limiting.

    1. Funny, I could say the same about the Left's referring to every evil in the world as "capitalist".

    2. How is a "the social welfare state" NOT socialist?

  5. When that psychotic left-winger Ronald Reagan squandered the opportunity to nuke the Commies off the face of the Earth, we should have known we'd still be dealing with the creep of socialism 35 years later.

    1. Beamish,
      Congress wouldn't have stood for that.
