It'll be just like being a kid again. No decisions to make, no worries about where your next meal is coming from (only what's going to be on your plate), maybe you won't have to worry about having a job....just pick from the menu of those the government has left to fill. What's your prob?
Well, it's about time. Most of us old enough to know the difference between a republic, a democracy, socialism, and communism have figured that one out a long time ago. Hopefully the younger, less aware voters will start to investigate what that really means for them and where it can lead.
Sen. John McCain stepped up his rhetoric against his Democratic rival on taxes in his weekly radio address Saturday, comparing his plan to "socialist" programs.
The remarks were part of a theme McCain has used since the final presidential debate, but his most recent comments were the first time he used the word to describe Sen. Barack Obama.
In the radio address, McCain didn't directly call Obama a socialist, but he let the now-famous Joe "the Plumber" Wurzelbacher nearly do it for him.
"You see, [Obama] believes in redistributing wealth, not in policies that help us all make more of it. Joe, in his plainspoken way, said this sounded a lot like socialism," McCain said Saturday.
Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has used the word in speeches the past two days as well.
Asked why McCain used the word "socialist" in the radio remarks, a spokesman said, "That's what it is. 'Spreading the wealth' around is socialism."
Palin invoked Wurzelbacher again Saturday, needling Obama for having a "staged photo-op" interrupted by a voter asking him a question about taxes.
"So when he left Joe's neighborhood in Toledo, our opponent didn't look real happy,Seems that the staged photo-op there got ruined by a real person's question. So here's a guy working -- standing there in his neighborhood when a candidate for president shows up, and he wanted more than just a handshake and a campaign button. He wanted some answers."
