You're kidding, right? No, I'm saying that socialists of any stripe, Democrats or "moderate" Republicans, will always use power to make money for the politically dominant.

Oh ... now socialists are NOT those who take money from the rich to give to the poor - Socialists are those who use political power for capitalistic motives.
So a polititian who campaigns on creating a busness climate conducive to growth and prosperity, and who receives donations from businessmen based on his stated goals is a socialist. Interesting take ...
