I had a friend who I thought was Conservative, until one day he asked "What's wrong with Socialism?" It wasn't the question that pissed me off so much as the way he posed the question. Actually it was more like a challenge. I couldn't believe my ears. In essence, I was hanging out with a closet liberal! Our friendship has toned way down over the years, but not so much because of that idiotic question, but because he's an incredibly selfish person (which, of course, is a common trait among liberals, to begin with).
