    Oh yeah, things are awesome in those countries. You can't even fart too loud, or you'll go to jail. How are things in Greece and Spain?

Can't say for sure, but life there is still probably better now than it was 100 years ago.

    So... no, it hasn't. Not by a long shot.
    The United States is propping up those countries with foreig aid.

    It certainly improved things in Cuba.
    Oh yeah! Cuba is a perfect example of a Communist utopia. You sold me! Jonestown was awesome too.

    However, they're not totally socialist economies.

    USPS is suffering due to the explosion of email and other electronic communication, UPS, and other electronic communication. it has nothing to do with "socialism".

    Obamacare hasn't even been full implemented yet.

    many public schools in this country are doing fine, though they have less funding due to property tax decreases.

    got any more dishonest comments?

    I'm sure I know more about certain aspects of the Soviet Union than the average Soviet citizen, yes. But that wasn't the point; the point is that I most definitely know more about socialism than this person.
