If you witness a state, county or town fireworks display this Independence Day, you have enjoyed the fruits of American socialism.
Social welfare, public programs and any service that is not performed to make a profit have often been sold to the uninformed, feeble minded and people who do not read books with big words as Socialism. Why, everywhere you look there is socialism. From the public water fountain that does not require quarters to operate, to the fireworks going off over your head this evening, everywhere this Independence day you can find a small bit of what some people call “Socialism” free for your benefit and enjoyment.
What an amazing country we live in!
Help celebrate America’s rich social history with me below the fold.
