This is going to sound partisan, but I still struggle with how you cons define Socialism. Our recently elected Republican Governor, Bob McDonnell yesterday announced that he has requested money from the Federal Government to assist Virginia with digging out of our recent snows. Virginia's annual budget for snow removal is around $79M. Before last weekend's additonal snow, Virginia had already spent $84M. So, by begging the Federal Government for money, is McDonnell a Socialist?
