That article is light on facts and heavy on opinion. It doesn't site anything at all, it just goes on a diatribe that is designed more to make people feel better about socialism and worse about capitalism.

I dont know about other Americans but I rail against high taxes or increased taxes and write my Congressmen and local reps regularly about it. I vote in elections and lower taxes are one of the things that I want my Reps to be on board with. Not to say I am always against a tax. I voted for the local tax levy for my local schools. But I am against what I see the Federal Govt doing with the taxes (and money they spend by borrowing) that seem to serve no civic purpose except to feed their own pockets or to buy votes and favors.

Most articles like that are never anything but opinion. Every country where Socialism--actual Socialism, not the mostly-market-based economies in Europe which are not really Socialism but "capitlism with high taxes and a lot of government services"--has resulted in absoluate devastation: starving people (at least when the political leaders aren't killing them by the millions as happened with both Stalin and Mao), political leaders living like divine emperors, etc. In fact, the DPRK still proves the adage that you can see Socialism from space--it is the dark spot on top of South Korea since most of the lights don't work.

Socialism kills; capitalism makes people free.
