    I think being an all volunteer service kinda kills the socialism argument.
    No, that is nothing like what he is saying. You did not notice that key word "state". Apparently the one who is shakey on what socialism is is not hatuey...

    When I receive a Christmas bonus, that's socialism? How about a company car? Or, if I go a trip on company business and the company pays my way, that's socialism? If I get compensated by the company for purchasing personel protective equipment: hard hat, safety glasses, steel toed boots, etc.; that's socialism? If I work on an offshore rig and they feed me and provide me with medical care while I'm there, that's socialism?

    Is socialsm voluntary?

    Is your company "the state"? What part of that is complicated for you?

    Technically, the military isn't the, "state", either. The military is a seperate entity that is maintained by the government to insure national security. Providing basic needs for soldiers is maintaining a healthy fighting force. You were in the Navy, you oughta understand that. Were you forced to join the Navy? When your enlistment ended, were you forced to re-enslist? After you reached a certain rank--E-5 in the Army--could you rent an apartment off post?

    I lived 'off post' as an E-3.

    The state is who pays for, controls and maintains the military.

    Rank was not a determinate to living off base.

    He will never admit he supports certain aspects of socialism that pertain to his liking.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    I thought you had to be an E-5 to live off post unless you had dependents and post housing was available. I never wanted to live off post when I was a private, so I admit I wasn't exactly payin attention to that regulation.... But, it was a long time ago when I was a private, too. Not sure when you served, so maybe there was a regulation hange between my private years and your's.
