I agree. I support multiple "socialist" programs. Mostly for citizens that can't help themselves; the elderly, children, physically and mentally handicapped, the poor etc. I think our tax system is just plain broken though. The rich are going to use every loophole that they can, and I honestly can't blame someone who is expected to pay half (or more) of their income because they have a lot of money.
