Lsherm: Everybody loves socialism as long as you get more than you're giving.
Lionel Mandrake: unlikely: This just in: Some people still don't understand the difference between Socialism and Communism.Hell, a significant number of douchebags don't know the difference between Stalinism and socialism. Or fascism and socialism.
mrshowrules: You could get 25% of Republicans to say Elvis is still alive, milk comes from cats or that they like the taste of bleach.The fact that 94% were for Free Enterprise and only 72% were for Capitalism shows that you aren't dealing with Rhode Scholars or that 22% were Trekkies hoping for their own space ship.

Lansydyr: Being a liberal in the Infantry (which is actually a dirty word to some guys I work with...), I'm often called on to try to defend "Obama's Socialist Takeover" of America. Here's my argument as to why some socialism is good, but all or none is bad:"Look, you obviously don't actually know what socialism *IS*. The definition of socialism is, basically, 'government control of a certain industry.' That's not a perfect definition, but it's pretty close. That doesn't have to mean federal government. That can mean local, like city, county or state government. Now, an example of national socialism is actually our Army/Navy/Air Force, etc... We as a country have decided that it's better for government to control the method of national defense than to contract it out to mercenary groups (or at least we used to).......
