: Don't be fooled by the politicians' rhetoric. The U.S.A. is a socialist country, and some of the loudest, meanest anti-communists in Congress and the private sector are (quietly) some of the strongest proponents of socialism. I know, because the work I do for a living involves the multimillion dollar socialist programs which keep this country juiced.
