Say what you want, it is pretty clear that if Obama is a Socialist, then so is Roberts. How exactly does one rationalize one's way out of that?

What conservatives never acknowledge--in part because of their crippling tendency to think in black-or-white, either-or terms--is that the U.S. and all of its chief allies among developed countries has long had a mixed political system. Thinking people recognize that capitalism has strong virtues -- promoting freedom, opportunity, and creativity.But it also has weaknesses -- a civilized society must be something more than a grasping "I've got mine, tough luck for you" entity. By the same token, a society loses a good measure of freedom and creativity if it pushes socialism too far. The answer is to seek a balanced system that draws on the strengths of both paths. And that's what has long been happening in the U.S., Canada, Australia, etc.

Fed up already. Taxed enough already.
