I laugh when some go crazy about socialism being anti-American. Regulated #socialism has always been a part of our government.
Property taken by eminent domain has been occurring since at least the 1800's. #socialism
Sometimes personal property taken was not just for government use but private businesses under economic development. #socialism
When property taxes were introduced, many cried #socialism.
When income taxes introduced many cried #socialism
When people without cars paid taxes to help build roads, #socialism
Funding schools, especially for people without children, #socialism.
They came out in full force with #socialism when FDR introduced Social Security, after witnessing the elderly being homeless and starving during the Great Depression. These people worked all their lives and were dying shantytown.
I'll let you guys add more, that's just the ones I thought of in 60 seconds. #socialism 😉
Worry and scorn should be directed against #Kleptocracy
"Kleptocracy is a government with corrupt leaders who use power to exploit people and natural resources of their own territory in order to extend their personal wealth and political powers."
