Socialism in America

What a dirty word!   It seems at least to me that Americans have been so conditioned to react to this word as if the Devil himself had conceived of it!    What I really fail to comprehend is the overall lack of understanding of just how socialist we are.   If you ask the average “Joe” if they would prefer to have private and competitive fire departments to put the fires out in their home, they would say NO.  If you asked if they would prefer that our country hire a contract private military to fight our wars in lieu of having a US military, they would say NO.  The list can go on and on to include law enforcement, public roads, libraries, schools, etc…   And nobody wants Social Security messed with either!   I just fail to see the disconnect.  


On the way to work today, I heard a great piece on PBS radio and think that it did a far better job of discussing the matter than I ever could.   Thus, if you would like to read a great article on the subject of our taxes and what purpose they serve, please go to this LINK and read: “All tax plans are wealth redistribution” by Will Wilkerson.
