Expanded definition of Socialism

Original post made by Defining Definitions, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Jun 29, 2010

I thought it would be interesting to look at some of the underlying aspects of socialism in our American society

* If you go to the library and check out books or condone the use of library book reading ... you are a socialist
* If you work for the government and receive any sort of compensation or use any government service of any sort ... you are a socialist
* If you drive down the street, use a sidewalk or park your car on the street ... you are a socialist
* If you are a member of congress and get a paycheck, along with medical insurance ... you are a socialist
* If you stop at red light, go at a green light, caution at a yellow light knowing that the light is paid for by taxpayers ... you are a socialist
* If you send your kids to public schools ... you are a socialist
* If you go to jail, prison or insane asylum or are protected by having criminals in jail ... you are a socialist
* If you flush the toilet with indoor plumbing knowing that your waste will be treated for infectious diseases ... you are a socialist
* If you have ever called a police officer, fireman or sheriff in your life or expect them to arrive on the scene of a crime ... you are a socialist
* If you get social security or Medicare ... you are a socialist
* If you have ever used a bridge while driving from one place to another ... you are a socialist
* If you are a member of the armed forces or knowingly accept the fact that we are protected by foreign invasion by our armed forces or have ever been happy to see the Blue Angels fly overhead ... you are a socialist
* If you have ever sent a letter to a loved one or received a Netflix CD via your mailbox or have given your mailman a wave ... you are a socialist

Wow! I'm sure glad we're NOT socialist.
