and who hasn't been caught up in this silliness?

political partisan crack? i've tried it many times and had terrible results

if someone is trying use fear and anger to goad you into initiating or threaten some sort of violence or aggression it's probably a bad idea

don't fall for it

Not socialist, democratic socialist.  There are a few democrats that qualify.  Obama certainly isnt/wasnt one of them. So, no you and the tea party were wrong, eh.

Leaders lead by force, or by incentive.

HALF OF US SOCIAL PROGRAM RECIPIENTS BELIEVE THEY "HAVE NOT USED A GOVERNMENT SOCIAL PROGRAM"

It's the "Keep your government hands off my Medicare" phenomena writ large: a society of people who subsist on mutual aid and redistributive policies who've been conned (and conned themselves) into thinking that they are rugged individualists and that everyone else is a parasite.

I witnessed this personally when having breakfast at a local diner one day; an elderly gent who drove a van festooned with Tea Party slogans about the evils of socialism sat at the counter chatting with another fellow about how dependent his wife was on medicare for her continued health, and how dependent he was on VA care.
