    It seems the word "socialism" comes up more often than it has to and apparently the people who use it, i.e. the talk radio and TV political blow hards, don't seem to quite know what the word actually means. Maybe they like the sound of the word or the sound of their own vice when they shoot their mouths off. Obama oponents use it alot to describe the Healthcare Bill and the bailouts. But yet we have government subsidized education, libraries, human services, pell grants for college, postal service, etc. So by the way the right wing noise machine been using the "S" word, by their definition, the U.S. is already a socialist country! So what's the line that defines a socialist or a non socialist country?
