Ill start off by saying my own views. Firstly, I am something of a socialist. (For those who dont know what that actually means, I am not a terrorist or a anarchist or any sort of destructive/anti orginazation person). I believe that capitalism is a horrid form of government, based on using those with less money as stepping stones to more dirty money. Although I have somewhat of an affinity for liberals in America, I am not altogether in agreement with them. I have come to realize that socialism does not work on such a large scale as America or anything like that, but I believe that we are well overdue for a reformed capitalism. For instance, the idea of free healthcare, wellfare, and social security appeal greatly to me, but unfortunately were snatched away for an unecesary and unjustified war. How can we deny our own biggoted solopsism? Anyway, on to my questions. How can anyone not believe in social security, or support Bush's new social security reform. Are you willing to let seniors sleep in cardboard boxes as opposed to homes, just so you can get 30 bucks in the mail? Money should go to those who need it, not to those who are going to blow it on unecesary junk. Also, what about the patriot act do you find justified? I hope to hear from people and maybe learn the secrets of the opposed mind.

Capitalism is an economic system not a form of government.
If you think health care is expensive now, just wait till it's free.
If you think money put into social security is a good investment for your retirement, go ahead. I'm thinking I'll need a little more to get by.
