Conservatives hate socialism (and this country), unless it benefits them
We hear the word socialist thrown around by the right wingers day after day. Obama is turning this into a socialist country, blah, blah, blah. I want my country back, yada, yada, yada, I love Glen Beck. Many if not most conservatives participating in the Million Moron March in Washington this weekend could not give an accurate definition of what Socialism was.
Socialism is a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole.
So let’s list some things that we have that are socialistic in nature, but yet conservatives have no problem reaping the benefits of. Some hate our government (and when you get right down to it, they hate having a black President) and yet they freely reap the benefits of these services even though it’s provided for by the government they hate so much. Isn’t it ironic?
- Paved roads
- Social Security
- State colleges
- Snow removal
- Garbage pick up
- Sewer lines and treatment plants
- Water treatment facilities
- Public schools
- Fire Department
- Street signs, traffic lights
The list goes on and on. So those of you who hate this country so much, those of you who hide behind racism to spew your lies and distrust for my United States of America, please please, please, do not accept these services your government provides to you.
