Based on all  the laws being passed and the  freedoms being removed from
the People of  the United States, I would say  we are definitely sliding
into collectivism/socialism.

Look at the  recent ruling surrounding ``eminent domain.''  Any law that
allows one  man (or corporation)  to take  away the property  of another
man, is clearly socialist.

Its wrong for me  to steal from my neighbor, but if I  own a big company
and can pad the pockets of the politicians, suddenly it is legal.

Oh, its for the good of the society they say... socialism I say.

And to Lonnie Olson who thinks socialism can work, we have Russia, China
and Germany to study as stark examples of just how well it can work.
