    Military is one of the 18 enumerated powers and is not socialism. Police is a local and state policy...not socialism.

    They conveniently define those out of their notion of 'socialism', but disingenuously. In the same way that it can be said government can 'do' military better than the private sector, you can argue that government can 'do' roads better, or charity, or whatever. By 'do', I mean "make generally beneficial". In some cases we are right to say government can 'do' better than private, in others we would not be correct. But, unless someone is willing to say that government can't 'do' anything at all better, then we are all 'socialists'.

    And by the way, I know that there is some extremist who may see this and trot in here and take me up on my challenge. This will be a person to ignore.

    Ours. With a mixed regulated market. It works. What doesn't work is the crank tea party theories of unregulated market, plutocratic rule, and a weak federal government. We tried that, and got the Great Depression.
