Let's not forget the Republicans have a long, long history of their own Socialism. Here's one small example.
"President Bush signed into law an emergency aid package for the U.S. airline industry Saturday, saying that 'terrorists will not shut down our vital businesses or thwart our way of life.'"
Once again, a Republican would call this a 'necessary capital infusion.' A true conservative would call this the 'Marxist redistribution of wealth from the American taxpayer to large stock exchange listed companies.'
