I like some Socialist ideas but fully-fledged and flourishing socialism is Utopian.

Capitalism works great for me. I got a good education, I have excellent healthcare, very nice housing and enough disposable income to enjoy my life. While I'm far from elite, I have made a very comfortable life off of the capitalist system.

Let me guess you were totally brainwashed by some liberal latent homosexual college professor?

I'm not entirely sure why a college professor who is in favour of socialism would have to be a latent homosexual. Perhaps you could explain.

It is no coincidence that when student loans were not available, education was much less expensive.

I would not want to privatize our police force, our firefighters and our utilities which are socialized.
I don't think I would want to live in a socialist country either though.
It depends on what degree you talk about and what you are socializing.

Yes, donations are tax deductible in the US. I know you are not going to try and claim tax deductions are a tenant of socialism.

someone must be real bitter and greedy to care so much about money.

I really don't care how much money the gouvernement takes from me as long as I live a happy life, even then i still got enough money to do things i want. I don't have to worry about anything cause i know when something happens to me the gouvernement will help me. In socialism it's mayby impossible to have 8 houses and 20 cars but then again 95 procent of americans won't be able to have that either including you and shawn.

But you make sure you keep a thight grip on your money, i bet it loves you just much as you love him
