It's just a hard reality.

To wake up and be living in a full on socialist country.

We would be in full recession if it weren't for government intervention which has gone way past emergency funding. So I guess the government is the economy.

53% of children are now on WIC. And I stopped counting how many were on welfare when it encompassed the entire states of California, Texas, and Florida.

Government hiring has outstripped private hiring since April.

Plus, our new beloved government run health care.

Punishment of every productive sector of the economy in favor of throwing money at the nonproductive sector.

And the thing that is so bothersome is I walk around and I bet most of the people living in this state don't even know or care they are now living under almost textbook definitions of socialism. It affects how I interact with people now. I have to categorise them out. Complacent or clueless..or completely tuned out.

No, honestly, the most bothersome part is that even members of my family believe in socialism. It was sort of scary/cute while they didn't hold the majority. But now they do, and for the life of me - I don't know how we are gonna get out of this. My experience is a lot of them don't grow out of it.

All to true. But when I try to point this out to one of my liberal co-workers, he's all FOX NEWS, and but..but..but...and corporate green and wage gaps and the government has to do something.

Oh you lost little lamb.

You should try to tell him that the way government deals with income equality is to make everyone equally poor. Not the other way around. Is that what he wants? Because if so ... I suggest you find new people to hang with. That will tell you everything you need to know about his personality.
