    That is the part that you don't get, Jimster.
    What we have here IS free will socialism.
    If it wasn't we'd change it to something else.
    We live in a democracy.
    Ther may be a minority thathates the way it is, but that is the way od democrcy.

    I wouldn't change it for the " Bread and circuses" kind of "democracy" that you have, that is for sure.

    You dont get thrown in jail if you dont pay your high taxes?

    I agree that you guys have a pretty good system, sounds like your debt to GDP is getting a bit worse though.

    For me personally, Sanders scares the shit out of me. Some of his ideas are okay, but the changes he wants to make will not be able to be made without massive corruption, inflation, and a giant increase in bureaucracy. You will get a new agency that takes 2 bucks to distribute 1 dollar. Oh, well.

    What do the Iran hostages have to do with socialism?
    Or is that just some news.

    Nothing as far as I know, just some news.

    Yeah, I guess a huge underground storage complex for natural gas is leaking and sending up quite a lot of gas.

    They cant get the gas stopped around the well head, so they are going to try and drill next to the old well and kill it from underneath. I assume they will cement the old well closed at the bottom.

    No, keep on keeping on jim. Just wasn't clear if the Iranian thing was connected to socialism. But I see it was just a bit of interesting news. Don't mind me.
