    well, I'm not so sure they think it through to that extent. but they clearly do want their "free stuff". they do not fathom that it's not free nor that it cannot last long.

    I'm curious to see how those in the lowest tax bracket react when they discover that they got their tax rates lowered a third by the so-called Bush Tax Cuts that expire in January.

    You do not have Socialism in the USA and never will. What you have is outdatedr racial, gender and class beliefs by a minorirty. At least they lost.
    Calling people goons and praising capitalist like the face book founder just proves this.

    If it is government spending on the poor it is socialism which obviously = evil
    If it is government money given to the rich is it is capitalism which obviously = good

    That is why banks nationalise their losses and privatise their profits

    And this relies on a nation of gullible lunatics to support it

    Government forcibly taking money from someone who earned it and handing it over to someone who didn't earn it is evil - regardless of whether or not the recipient is rich or poor.
