A little more about the election

Yep  – still thinking a lot about the election. Some of assertions (Obama wants to make us socialists and wants to create a welfare state) strike me as specious at best – but are tossed out by the folks who:

  • Support the home mortgage deduction
  • The military complex (think Boeing, Haliburton, Blackwater and others)
  • Converting television to digital only signals
  • The wall street bail out

I’d like to know what part of those things don’t fall into one of the arms of socialism or welfare? I’m sure I could think of a few more examples if I tried. And while I’m not hot on our military spending – I can easily understand the why of it, if you get what I mean, just like I understand the why of federal highways. So – why not they why of public electricity, public water, public transportation and a few other things?
