It is definitely an interesting concept: Even Tomas Jefferson had something to say about it: Socialism for the rich and capitalism for the poor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Some sources state that it is 'the poor' who bear all the risk in our society. I would differ and suggest it is the middle class who bear all the risk. We are NOT a capitalist society. And for all on here who preach 'free market' this and 'free market' that when it comes to health care and other things that would benefit ordinary Americans, someone needs to step forward and explain why Chrysler is still in business. If not for American socialism in the mid 90's Chrysler wouldn't even be around now. We have seen socialism for the wealthy and the middle class absorbing the losses the last 4 years. Anyone who thinks the wealthy in today's world got there by pulling themselves up by the boot straps really needs to think again.!
