According to Hayek, socialism occurs when the state owns or controls the "means of production" in an industry. Under ObamaCare, the private insurance companies are required to not disqualify people for pre-existing conditions, to provide preventive care, and to cover children stuck in the young adult "doughnut hole." But they remain private insurance companies. Health care is delivered by private physicians, working in private offices, private clinics and private hospitals. The government takes over none of those institutions. Pharmaceuticals are provided by private manufacturers. Health care devices are manufactured by for-profit, private companies. The government owns or controls no "means of production." Socialism? Where?

Do you have any understanding at all, of any thing having to do with capitalism and the understanding of what a contract is?, Much less, the unconstitutional mandating of a forced contract? If you do not like the word socialist, how about a variant of it, fascism, where the state , also, chooses winners and losers. Where do you draw the line in our countries drift towards the totalitarian state. I hope, my friend, that you do not have to wait until the state comes to claim the rest of your family. To quote William F Buckley, "Stop the world, I want to get off.".

Spoken like someone who hasn't a clue as to what it takes to start or run a business. The state, local and federal regulations and tax code make it almost impossible to start a business and hire employees without massive sums of money.

How has the modern education mill worked out for ya?

Obama's stated ultimate healthcare goal is the single-payer system, completely run by the government; i.e., socialized medicine. He has stated that goal cannot be achieved immediately, but incrementally over a period of years. Obamacare is the structure by which insurance companies will eventually be driven out of the healthcare business, and patients will be driven inevitably into government programs.

And as in the movie , when one turns 30 years old , the person is sent to the solent green factory . NO if ,and,or butts. Folks we are indeed headed in that direction.
Who or what company is going to invent the next medical brakthrough if there is no reward for doing it. O right , the do nothings will demand they do it and then the do nothings will get their fair share.
Liberals , socialist and Democrats are all one in the same now and are the liying scumbags of the earth.

I got some interesting feedback yesterday after I compared President Obama’s speech at Florida Atlantic University to speeches and writing from Vladimir Lenin and Benito Mussolini.  

I’m surprised people would want to look the other way and imagine that such comparisons are harsh when indeed the aim of those dictators was to take power from a small ruling class of rich people and redistribute wealth to the masses.  

Of course that’s the official theory on socialism and Marxism. But  of course it never works out that way. Yet still today the hype is nonetheless the same.  I’ve written about this before especially comparisons of...
