Without socialism, My streets would not be plowed, My neighborhood would not be patrolled by police and my house would burn to the ground due to no fire department.

Damn you fucking progtards are more confused about socialism than the contards.


What's to be confused about? I've not yet received a itemized bill for any fire or police services I've received. They're funded by a pool generated by taxes. Ergo, Socialism.

There would be nothing and no one who would step in to fill the void of snow removal if not for government??


Sure, go ahead and hire some private contractors to clear your freeway without taxation. I'd be impressed if it worked as effectively as its done now.

I suggest you educate yourself on socialism, because like most conservatives you don't seem to know what the term means.


I suggest you educate yourself on socialism instead. It's not whatever you want it to mean. Like it or don't, We have a hybrid economy with both free trade and socialism. Socialism is stigmata to the easily scared. Any economy built entirely on one model will fail.

Remain ignorant, your choice, but the government providing a service does not make that service socialist.


These services are socialist, no matter how much you say otherwise.
