Comrades Bush and McCain: Socialism is the answer



Yeah. Very interesting that when unrestricted free market capitalism gets into trouble, the answer - from just about everybody - is Socialism! Huh. Who would have thunk it?

Now, question here. If we socialize banks, mortgage companies, insurance companies, etc. when THEY get in trouble, might it make sense to socialize medical care? We have at least 40 million people in desperate need. It's certainly an emergency. Just wondering...

Good point, but ...

The banks, mortgage companies, insurance companies, etc. are not actually being socialized. They're being nationalized. Unless the "people" benefit, these moves are closer to fascism than to socialism.
