Wheweee, can't answer the question you have to rant about mistruths. The reality is that socialism allows the bottom feeders live off the hard earned gains of those who choose to work for a living and as Thatcher pointed out "Socialism fails when it runs out of other people's money to spend" It failed in 70's Uk, it has failed in Greece and failed in Africa. It is failing in many cities and states of America and the Democrats believe they can still make it work for the whole USA,,, only if they enslave the people like they did before the American Civil War.

Three years ago, I put together a “Moocher Index” that measured the degree to which non-poor people in a state were benefiting from redistribution programs.

As you can see if you click on the nearby table, Vermont was the worst state, followed by Mississippi, Maine, New York, and Massachusetts.

I confessed that my Moocher Index was a crude and imprecise tool, but it was one of my most popular posts in the early days of this blog. Probably because it was a way of measuring the degree to which people were being lured to ride in the wagon of government...
