Should the U.S. become a fully Socialist Country?
The U.S. is clearly developed into a semi-socialistic country. Welfare, Social Security, Public Education, government controls over personal property and personal behavior are all examples of socialism by our government already. With socialist like Hillary or Barrack (universal health care, income redistribution, strict controls of business, etc.) poised to become President and Nancy Pelosi controlling the Congress, should the U.S. fully commit to becoming a socialized government and economy like much of Europe. This would be a fundamental change in the theoretical structure of our government where the government is supposed to work for the people. A socialized government focuses on the good of the people as a whole and does not place as great as importance on the rights on an individual. China is more extreme example of a government having a great deal of control of its citizens’ lives. Please say why you do or don’t favor the U.S. becoming a socialist country.
