Re: Santorum Drops Out


I'd like to know what exactly you have against socialism. Did a socialist touch you in the naughty place as a child? Its just another way of doing things, one with both positives and negatives, same as with capitalism.

No system is perfect. Some things are better handled by consumer demand. The government has no need to be in the cell phone business(except insofar as it regulates the electromagnetic spectrum, a public, and very limited, resource).

Some are better heavily regulated. Unlicensed nuclear power plants would be a Very Bad idea.

Some are better handled by private industry. No, we don't need a state owned TV station like the BBC.

Some are better handled by government. I don't think anyone wants to go back to the days of for profit fire services letting houses burn because the owners won't pay them.

When did 'socialist' become a swear word to you?
