LD, that is exactly what is wrong with liberals thinking, Most Americans do not think like that, and want less government intrusion in their lives, smaller government, less taxes and more freedom to make their own decisions and mistakes. Most Americans live within their means, and have made considerable sacrifices to reduce our personal debt while the feds run wild with spending and failed programs and projects.
Now lets talk about socialism. NAZI Germany, NK, the Soviet Union and China. In everyone of these examples the communist leadership live like royalty while the average citizens live in poverty. Take one look at GoogleEarth(TM) at NK and then look at SK and China. Do you see the difference? Americans are not buying your argument!
