3. As Newfie11 observed...

... the drones of the conservative hive regurgitate Neocon talking points that conflate socialism with communism. While I doubt that facts can ever penetrate the ear-to-ear bone of malicious Teabagger trolls, maybe if I write real slow some glimmer of truth will seep in:

SOCIALISM SIMPLY MEANS THAT A GOVERNMENT PUTS THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE PEOPLE AHEAD OF THE BEST INTERESTS OF CORPORATIONS, WHOSE BEST INTERESTS RARELY, IF EVER, COINCIDE WITH THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE PEOPLE.

And it is the PEOPLE that are the nation, NOT the government, and CERTAINLY not corporations.
