The six contradictions of socialism in the United States of America:

4. Their representatives run the government - yet the poor keep getting poorer.
5. The poor keep getting poorer - yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.
6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about - yet they want America to be more like those other countries.
That, my friends, pretty much sums up the USA in the 21st Century.
Get out and vote and set this country back on its course!
