    Businesses that couldn't survive, without federal-subsidies, wouldn't exist.​

    It would look pretty much how it looks now. The only truly socialist countries are countries like Cuba and Venezuela where the government owns and runs pretty much everything. Just because we have some social programs and a social safety net does not really qualify us as being socialist.

    But we seem to be sliding in that direction, and Obama and his minions are greasing the slide.

    I disagree base on my thread question (any socialism)! I'm sure wingnuts REALLY disagree.
