Is Socialism OK?

When looking at America do you see socialism as being OK?

It should be opposed, fought, and stopped. There is no place for it in this country if we are to survive and prosper.

No. People would better served if they could save their own money and make their own decisions on what to do with that money than being taxed to death.

Law of supply and demand would could take care of most social issues.

Some things are nice having in the current system, but aren't necessary to use tax dollars to perform their function.

A few groups groups, would be hard to replace if they weren't functioning off of tax dollars...schools, fire departments, and the poilce department.

Schools could definitely find a solution, but fire and the police, would be hard to find a solution for, other than tax dollars.

How are we using Socialism here? Are you referring to balls-out-total-socialism or socialist aspects integrated into a capitalist framework (what we have now)?

Yes. Nuance and clarification is such a bother. In lieu of such things, I'm going to vote OK.

Seems like there are [at least] three arenas where this idea should be scrutinized separately.

Defense - soldiers, police, firefighters, immigration, FBI, CIA, etc.
Commercial Safety and settled markets - FDA, Product safety, tax and tariff enforcement, piracy deterrence.
Arenas where progress can still be made through innovation, or results can be optimized through striving for excellence, motivated by base instincts. - medicine, prescriptions, auto industry.

You are very socialist. Everything you post supports socialism. The health care thread was the most recent example. Let's not pretend otherwise you are just being silly.

I heard that 53% of all Demorats support socialism. That's why I posted this.

Yes, we do need some confins to this question. Does he mean socialism as the complete means of production being administered by the state or is he referring to a more statist version of capitalism in which there is much government intervention within the market?

I just worded it as I saw it presented. I think it goes without saying that we have to have defense, police and fire. If I were to take a guess on the original poll and certainly how I intended on this being taken here was the dramatic move we are taking towards socialism lately. Bigger government, more taxes, health care, regulation, stimulation, bailouts ect.

If I could answer in my own words I would have said
  • I don't belong to a party and I think we have too much socialism already
so I chose what looks to me like the closest of the options
  • I belong to a 3rd party and do not think it is OK
although, since I typically vote Republican and almost never vote democrat I suppose I could have selected the Republican option instead.
