It may take more than a 150k clothing allowance to hide the balls it took Sarah Palin of all people to accuse anyone of being a Socialist. Just ask yourself which of the 50 states is in fact the most Socialist state. If you come up with any other state besides Alaska, IMO you either haven't investigated or are given to self-deception. Having read the definitions proffered on another thread while sincerely trying to eliminate Alaska as socialist and failing miserably what can I do but offer this opinion. If the government takes the profits gained from a natural resource and disseminates a portion of taxes gained from this industry so as to eliminate state taxes and even after that actually gives a share of said profits to each and every citizen can it be called anything other than Socialism? It would seem that Sarah has no problem with Socialism as practiced in her home state, she only has a problem with anyone else trying to somehow share the wealth and thereby possibly actually help the middle class out. While this is far from the first and only example of hypocrisy exhibited by McCain's choice as VP it is easily among the most amazing example of don't do as I do, do as I say.
