I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
To call America socialist is really quite funny.. fascist on the other hand it looks more like. It started much earlier but Bush part duh, amplified the fascism. Just saying.

Fascist America in the above
Social welfare America in the 1930's
Conservatives believe the government is incompetent, and seek to elect people who will prove it
Ignorance is Bliss Bliss is the same as happiness US Christian conservatives are the happiest in the US according to studies Do you see a connection?
When did it start? Probably around the time of FDR, maybe a little before with welfare, etc. When did it really get rolling? During the 60s when America took an annoying turn for the liberal. Today, most people think they ought to be rewarded just for waking up in the morning, that's why we're a nation of consumers, not producers. We think we deserve neat stuff because we're alive, not because we've actually earned it.
If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.
If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
The FDR administration's lapdog judges created incredible expansions of power for FDR and subsequent administrations. The abuses of the federal government that took place in the last 60 years could not have happened without the foundation laid by FDR
Another no vote..
Why do you think that socialism is a downward spiral?
Have you ever wondered why so much of the world's population embraced communism at one time?
Have you ever studied the politics of other nations?
They are far more socialistic than we are..

I think it's counter productive to use such labels to describe our country.
(Admittedly I've done it before, I'm making a honest attempt to end it.)
It's an appeal to emotion.
We should be focusing on what works and what doesn't.
There are a lot of things that don't work.
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
When families started to fall apart, when it became socially acceptable to have babies out of wedlock, when drugs became so pervasive, when we lost control of our borders, when an accident became an opportunity to make money, and when we began to be polarized into a "left" and a "right", each with the goal of keeping the other out of power.
That's when we started to fall apart.
It might not be too late, but we'll have to do some serious work to put the family back in place as the basic unit of society.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
You mean like Greece and Cuba?
Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
