    Which of these socialist programs should be eliminated?

    For those of you who cannot stand the idea of a national health care program because it's socialism, which of these other socialist programs do you think we should eliminate?

    If you do not choose all of them, please explain why.

    Or how about the money given to Wall Street bankers for executive bonuses or given to defense contractors?

    Not sure what your point is. If I created a similar poll asking proponents of national health care to say whether or not they supported things like socialized food, socialized housing, and a socialized economy, I would wager that most of them would say that they did not. Have I uncovered some brilliant failing in their logic? Of course not.

    You make it sound as though the right-wing does not routinely object to the principle of socialization.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Again, what does that have to do with my point? I don't know any politicians who are advocating for a 100% socialized system just like I don't know any who are advocating for a 100% capitalist system. The fact that a politician objects to one particular iteration of socialism in one particular sector does not mean that it's hypocritical for them to support it in another.

    Public libraries. education and parks for the most part of state concerns and do not violate the tenth amendment.

    Socialist security, Medicaire and Medicaid clearly are unconstitutional under the tenth amendment and should never been allowed in the first place. VA hospitals while "socialist" in some aspects are a benefit for serving and are clearly legitimate under congressional power to raise and equip a federal army.
