    Then you better be against it, because the Dems are in power.

    And much of their defense responsibilities are taken up by the US.
    Why should they, there is a fool born in the US every minute willing to foot the bill for them.

    I hear that a lot from some, that we're right and the rest of the world is wrong. I give that type of hubris all the consideration it deserves.

    FAIL. The purpose is quite irrelevant. Socialism is by definition when the state controls the means of production.

    Stop making up your own definition of socialism.

    Under your definition, if the state controlled the means of production and gave away the produced goods only to a select few, that's not socialism despite state control over the means of production.

    Huh:

    Socialism refers to the various theories of economic organization advocating either public or direct worker ownership and administration of the means of production and allocation of resources.
    [ame]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socialism[/ame]

    The state owns the equipment. Employs the doctors. Controls procedures. That is public ownership and administration of the means of production and allocation of resources.

    You are defining socialism as you see fit independent of what it actually is.

    Just as I cannot be sure the rest of the world is wrong about this, how can you be sure the rest of the world is right?

    As the saying goes, only time will tell.

    Of course, it could be that BOTH methods work...

    And which one to use is a matter of political decisions...

    That's how it's not a right.
    No one has the right to steal money for any purpose. Including provinding for their defence.

    An excuse that every 5 year old who has faced the horrors of broccoli used.

    I'm sure it makes sense to other 5 year olds. Us grown ups know better.
