Oh. I noticed one other fun bit rdm. In addition to your assumption that it's only socialism if it works, you also use one of my favorites: Calling the government, "the people". Isn't is interesting that the government is the people when it's doing the right things, but it's under control of some evil force when it's not. That's another delusion btw. A particularly scary one IMO, but one that I run into all the time.
The government has the power you give it whether it's going to do what you want, or it's going to do what you don't want. So don't give it that much power, OK?
