When George W. Bush gave AIG, an insurance company, $85 billion of the taxpayer's dollars before TARP was even passed, is this an example of crony socialism?
When the Republican party passed their 'Faith Based Initiatives' in 2001, so taxpayer dollars could be redistributed to a variety of religious organizations, is this an example of crony socialism?

Any chance we are going to get rid of ethanol mandates, which is nothing but a Republican-Marxian redistribution of wealth from America's east and west coasts to America's corn belt? Hence, crony capitalism. Si es cierto!!!

The military is a socialized system, in that the government owns the whole darn thing. The VA is socialized medicine, in that the government owns the whole darn thing!
And if there was any question about how socialist the army is, they removed all doubt when they adopted their last slogan: Army of One. That sounds positively communist. Why don't they just call it the collective? And in the US military everyone pledges to support one another no matter what. No one gets left behind. Everyone gets government provided housing, health care, and even government clothing. The military is the most socialist institution we have.
Does anyone disagree that the military is almost entirely government run? And if you agree to that obvious fact, when you attack all government run programs, aren't you by definition attacking the United States military?
The Republicans need to stop denigrating the troops. They keep saying that the government can't get anything right. How about the biggest government project of all -- the United States Armed Forces? Are the Republicans talking smack about the military -- and hence, the troops? Support the troops! Support government!
