Time to Shrug?

Most individualistic, freedom minded, free-market oriented citizens have read Atlas Shrugged. If Obama becomes president, it may be time for all of us who work hard and do not believe in socialism to shrug.

It is hard to believe that Rand's warning could be so close at hand. Socialism is just a transitional stage into totalitarianism. Those who have read Rand's Anthem, Orwell's 1984 or Animal Farm should understand that when socialism begins to creep in, the societies described in these novels are just footsteps away.

After Reading the comments here about Socialism, and that Obama represents Socialism; I'm beginning to think there is a dumbing down of America.
If you think McCain and Palin are the answer to this country's problems, God help us all! I know Sarah Palin and What you see, is not what you will get....

She raised taxes on big Oil 300% then gave every man, women and Child an $1,200. energy credit above and beyond the regular permanent fund Dividend, Talk about spreading the wealth off the back of Business, now that's Socialistic!!

We have had all kinds of Government programs in this country for 60 years. I'll bet all of you have had to use one of them at some time in your lives.
I'll bet you weren't crying "Socialism" then?!

I have read Atlas shrugged too, ridiculous
comparison!

If you don't want Socialism, you won't want to move to Canada!

You did an excellent job of demonstrating the "dumbing down" you speak of.

Following your specious argument, one who uses socialized healthcare is a supporter of socialized healthcare and unable to aspire to anything better; for them to want want a better healthcare system, they must not use the system in place?

For one to have benefited from a government program does not mean they are in support of the program. There are many who have benefited from the discriminatory affirmative action programs who are vociferously opposed to such programs because they know they are capable of succeeding without the government's assistance.

You may want to read Atlas again.
