“To get a Democrat to admit to practicing socialism is a lot like frisking a wet seal.
To get Republicans to confess to their role in socializing America is an equally slippery affair.

Obama is an adherent of this socialism; as is McCain. And so is George Bush, who, as a campaign ploy, had promised to reform America’s steep tax system, but decided to stick with Karl.
Indeed, America, the cradle of capitalism, clings to Karl. Russia, the cradle of communism, has abandoned him in favor of a flat—and very low—tax on income. …”
