Socialism Socialism Socialism - that is all Republicans say in response to any steps to make things better
When one proves with mountain of FACTS that IF you really want to "Cut Spending", if you really want to put the US economy on a competitive path, THEN you would do these things:
1- Have Universal Nationalized Health Care, so health care will cost a typical family of 4 $600 per year as it costs in all European countries, Canada, etc. vs $15,000 per year in US, so that health care will take 9% of the GDP as it takes in all European countries, Canada, etc. vs a DEFICIT busting 18% of GDP in US,
2- Cut the size of US Militarily, down to about $200Bill per year, still the largest in the World by far
3- End the Unnecessary Wars
Then all Republican Luntics can say in response is: "Socialism Socialist Socialism Socialist ..."
NOT facing the fact or being too brain washed by the LYING right-wing Media (TalkRadio, Fixed news, etc.) to know that:
1- The way Universal nationalized health care is operated is the same way that we operate the US Military, Police Dept, Courts of Law, etc. so then according to Republican lunatics US Military is "Socialism..."
2- WE already are a Socialist country because we HAVE TO PAY Taxes. That is the moment you have to PAY TAXES by Law or you go to Jail if you do not pay Taxes, then you are a Socialist country. After all why do we pay Taxes for? To help our Society, our fellow man, which is what the meaning of Socialism is.
So the question is NOT whether we are going to become Socialist by having Universal Nationalized Health Care or Government regulating Mines from being operated for maximum profit and minimum safety, or Government regulating Oil platforms off-shore from being operated to maximize profits without regard to taking every step to avoid leaks, because we already are a Socialist country since we HAVE TO PAY TAXES. The only question is what happens to our Taxes? That is:
1- Is our Taxes wasted on one unnecessary war after another? Like Iraq, Vietnam, etc. etc. unnecessary wars.
2- Is our Taxes wasted on a Gargantuan military? Considering that US Military budget is larger than Military
budget of all other countries on Earth combined while US economy is now barely 15% of world economy.
3- Is our Taxes sent to Rich & Big corporations? As in in $750Bill bail out of Wall Street Banks in 08
4- Or is our Taxes invested in our People and cities via Universal Nationalized Health Care and other Social services as ALL European nations already do. And lets also state this FACT, that as a result of which "Socialized services" the rest of the "Capitalist" part of European economies does much better than the US as EVIDENT by how MUCH MORE valuable Euro is vs US Dollar.
So You see the Republican and our right-wing Media, as agents of Big Pharma, Big Insurance, Big Military, Big Banks, etc. aka Wall Street Gang, for too long have been playing the Ultimate Con Job on American people by brain washing, specially the uneducated masses, that is people who listen to Beck, Limbaugh, Fix news, etc. as to the above FACTS. That is they have been playing the Ultimate Con Job on American people by labeling any attempt to get more value from our Government, which really means from our Taxes, as "Socialism", while the fact of the matter is that you are a Socialist country when you HAVE to PAY TAXES, and the only question is what happens to our Taxes, which means our Government, that is it operated for the benefit of the people or for the benefit of the Big Pharma, Big Insurance, Big Banks, etc. aka Wall Street Gang.
Ask a Republican what "Socialism" is?
You want to see what lunatics Republicans are?
Then ask them to describe why for example Universal Nationalized Health Care is "Socialism"?
You will see 2 things happen: their head figuratively will explode with spasms of ""Socialism" "Socialism" "Socialism" or maybe "Liberal" "Lib" "Lefty" etc. one word rants OR they will describe what "Socialism" is, which is the following:
1- That institution, such as health care, is paid for from the Taxes that we pay,
2- The salaries of people working in that institution are set by the Government,
3- That institution is pretty much operated on a not for profit basis.
So then point out to them that the above description of what a "Socialized" institution is, is EXACTLY how we operate the US Military, Police, Fire Dept., Courts of Law, etc... AND then watch them realize, if they are not totally brain washed by now by the lies of the right-wing Media, that the way we operate the US Military, Police, etc., which are on "Socialized" basis, are great and necessary ways to operate certain essential institutions and that is why health care should be operated on the same basis as the US Military, Police, Fire Dept., are operated on, which is on "Socialized" basis and that is WHY the Conservative parties in UK, Conservative parties in France, Conservative parties in Canada, Conservative parties in Germany, etc. are ALL 100% for their Universal Nationalized Health Care systems, which means for their "Socialized" health care systems, which should then bring you at the realization that Republicans in US are not Conservative at all, but that they are simply paid agents of Big Pharma, Big Insurance, Big Banks, etc. aka Wall Street Gang and that they will say any LIES, or anything no matter how lunatic, in service of the their real masters and against the well being of American people such as saying "Socialism Socialism Socialism Socialism" in response to everything, more on this here:
