    So move to some other great nations who don't bother with any social programs and have really low tax rates.

    I've heard Somalia is fantastic this time of year (before the famine season kicks in) and their government's so uninvasive that it practically doesn't exist! It is conservative PARADISE, I tell you!

    Modern Somalia is a consequence of militant state communism.
    You guys should read more about these subjects.

    It makes your posts, look ignorant.

    Why would I move? Thats how the US was designed. Just put it back, and then you either like it, change it legally, or leave it.

    I know, but this is what is popularly defined as communism.
    Never the less, these regimes do a lot of things, that some liberals in the U.S. tend to want.

    Industry nationalization and further state control of the economy.
    It's just that they eventually fail because their economies start to suck, from all that government control.

    It's pretty ignorant to call Somalia, a paradise of freedom, when one of the direct causes of it's destruction, is too much government control.

    So the choices are socialism or anarchism?

    Why wouldn't you use an example that's actually applicable, like, I don't know, India. One of the largest growing economies in the world that's also incidentally moving away from it's formally oppressive socialist policies. It's not like India is completely favorable to Capitalism either; there are plenty of problems you could point out. Falsely equating anyone against socialist policies to anarchists accomplishes nothing.
