    Socialism only ends up with massive death and economic ruin. You honestly think it's not a bad thing?

    Take a look at the red states. You will find that most of them are federal welfare states, receiving more back from the fed than they pay in.

    Take away the federal tit they are sucking and they would likely collapse

    Yeah.. because we have all kinds of room for military bases in high income and tax cities like Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago.... and the federal interstate miles in Kansas are less than what they are in Connecticut....
    Yes, there are problems in the pet projects many representatives get for their states... but don't just paint this as a blanket picture

    Unless, that is, you wish to use the same argument for individuals who pay no income taxes that are gaining benefit from entitlements

    She has a point but at the same time, why not take the low hanging fruit, a conservative would have to live like Daniel Boone not to be "hypocritical" in the big government era where everything from holes in Swiss Cheese on is regulated and micro managed by government intervention.

    Personally, I'd tell DC to "get bent" but then ;like Ron Paul; I'd probably get about 2% of the vote in the process so my thoughts are to fight it but don't look a dense jackass in the mouth either , take what your being forced to pay for weather you like it or not.

    If Obama is a socialist.... If socialism is a system that the left wing want to replace the Constitution, then we should have an open and honest debate. Run as socialist, be open about shredding the documents that founded the nation. Make the argument and let the people decide. Easy

    Personally, I don't think he's a Socialist, I think he's like most, he's into fascism far more than he is socialism.
