On the contrary, what is happening in Ameria is not Socialism at all. It may be true that the mechanics used to bail out the big financiess is being conducted the same as the distributin of wealth in a Socalist state, but there the similarity ends. It is in fact exactly the opposite, despite the mechanics. The word Socialism comes from the root that birngs us 'social' and 'society', both of which mean a companionship or camaraderie of all the members of the community. Hence, Socialist---state wealth redirected for the beenfit of all. This bail out is still state wealth taken, but taken for a few, not for all, and that is what makes it the opposite of socialist.

Contact your Congressman and Senator. Advise them of what you expect from government.
We do not expect Socialism. We expect and want to see Free Markets. Let the Free Market system work. No bail out now or ever.

Ask them why we do not see criminal charges against the fraudulent managers of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. What about the oversight responsibility and fraud attributed to the Democrats?

I guess some people only read the headlines and not the whole story.

It would be a horse$hit socialist state if it only bailed out failing capitalists.

First, if capitalism is so great, why are so many businesses failing?

And second, a good socialists state would nationalize the successful businesses -- in our case the oil companies, the insurance companies, the pharmaceutical companies, just to name a few. Let me know when that happens, ok?
