I haven't heard anybody calling for public ownership of industry, Tomar. You have no idea what socialism is. Perhaps you just like hyperbole, or parroting what you hear on talk radio? If you construe socialism to mean social reform, then you're on track. It's plain to see capitalism has unfairly concentrated power and wealth among a small segment of society that controls capital. At last, the America that has helped countless entrepreneurs create enormous wealth has declared it's time to give something back. That's not socialism, it's justice.

Tomar, you are so ignorant of your own belief system you don't even know rightwing noids like yourself are PRO COP and PRO LAW ENFORCEMENT, even libertarian idiots are one hundred percent in favor of cops for preserving the propertied class police state, for the gods' sakes. Geez, maroons like you aren't even fun to pick on, you're just pathetic.

I think most people don't even understand what socialism really is and they have been tought to fear it by nut job politicians. For certain things socialism would be completely acceptable and better. Research things on your own and don't just listen to politicians. The only thing that democrats and republicans have in common is that they all lie.
