In denial of Socialism in America

We are dependent upon government for food, shelter, education (indoctrination), entertainment (parks, theaters, sports arenas, swimming pools, etc), and now healthcare and even cell phones.

Government tells us what kinds of cars and appliances we can own. The central government took ownership of a major US automobile manufacturer and the national banking system.

The central government owns most of the land in the collective commonly known as the Western States.

We ban God from schools and the public square -- just like Lenin, Stalin, and Mao. Government dictates what can and must be taught in our schools (indoctrination centers) and what is prohibited to be taught. Our "news" media largely broadcasts what the Party wants us to know.

When there is a slight decrease in the rate of increase in federal spending (2013 sequester) or when "non-essential" portions of the of the central government are temporarily closed, we go into a government-dependency-withdrawal panic while politicians and bureaucrats go into a "how dare you defy the government" punish-the-People mode.

We blindly submit to government agencies that eavesdrop on our phone calls without a warrant, maintain massive databases of information on us, search our persons and belongings without a warrant, conduct massive armed raids on our homes based on a suspicion we might have a joint, and confiscate our property.

We elected a president who bragged in his autobiographies that he was surrounded by and indoctrinated by communists throughout his youth and education. Most of the people we have elected to Congress as well as state and local governments also have a government do-it-all collective mindset (our local school superintendent announced last night in a town-hall meeting that all the school children in Iron County, Utah "belong to me").

Yet, most of us deny that we are a Socialist (in many aspects, Communist) nation even though that Socialist mindset has buried us in national debt.
Socialism: a political and economic theory of social organization that advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole
Communism: a political theory derived from Karl Marx, advocating class war and leading to a society in which all property is publicly owned and each person works and is paid according to their abilities and needs
Ya got enough government yet?

We need smarter, moral, and non-delusional voters.
