I agree with you 100%. We are being brought up on America being a nanny state.
I do not disagree with assistance programs, but they need to stress more training, schooling, and incentive to be gainfully employed.

Its American corporations, American lobbyists, American politicians that are the REAL socialists. They are the only ones receiving Welfare; they earn it, they breed it, they legislate it. Its the poor, its the displaced immigrants ; a result of American foreign policy, Nafta etc that create welfare. As is so often the case - the VICTIMS are those at fault. Maybe someday all those gung ho Americans;mostly poor whites (mostly Southern) poor blacks, poor Latinos that feed the DEATH MACHINE (Military Industrial Complex)may be able to get an education, benefits, and health care without having to put their lives on the line KILLING other POOR foreigners so that the OLD RICH MEN in the USA (the real Welfare bastards)can make their billions.
Democratic Socialism is being in business first to BENEFIT SOCIETY then make a profit. Why is it that the USA is in hock to every major industrial nation; especially China, and Japan, and a looming 10 Trillion dollar NATIONAL DEBT - where in short order just THE INTEREST PAYMENT on the DEBT will EAT UP all tax income the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT has. You need to get some LEARNING pennsylvania independent, and then go to Iraq and put your butt on the line so that your FAT CATS back home can keep selling you out!

And yet, while you are being taxed like a socialist state, you are not reaping the benefits of a socialist state.

As a Christian I find authoritarian capitalism to be at odds with the Gospel message.

It therefore deeply saddens me to see the so called Christian leaders of my nation and yours, celebrate a culture that applauds getting rich at the expense of others. I'm not against the accummulation of personal wealth... but I do oppose it when it willingly exploits the poverty of others.

We don't live in a democracy, or even a meritocracy... we live in a plutocracy.

Despite this, Merry Christmas to you! (not of the Coca Cola Corporation variety though)

God bless
