Now, you have lost your reason. It's one thing to argue that Obama's
plans are so expensive that they would require jacking up taxes
above what they were in the Clinton years, and that that will cause
such economic cost that, in your view and under present circumstance,
it will bring about a terrible depression. But this notion that that
the difference between socialism and capitalism boils down to the
difference between Democratic taxes and social programs and GOP
taxes and social programs is just plain silly.

Not to mention demeaning to the few real socialists still around.
