When did socialism become associated with tyranny?
Why do Americans hate social institutions so much. Its greatest achievements have been through socially funded through collective efforts: the military, education system, the highway system, the nuclear bomb, civil rights, great public works like the hoover dam, TVA and other great systems. But yet they believe that socially funded health care is evil, that caring for your fellow citizen is evil, that anything not run by private enterprise is weak and inefficient. You have to realize that all other industrial countries have socially funded health care, and get better care at far lower costs. Your economy is losing, your jobs are going away, GM, Ford, the steel companies are all carrying the burden and penalty for insurance companies greed. The denial of basic human rights and insurance companies being a leech on the american economy is the true tyranny. It is time to smarten up. The world is waiting, puzzled that you have not. Just an fyi. Military, education, public works, highway are all funded by common funds. Why are they acceptable for public funds and health care not. Should everyone build their own roads, be their own army of one, home school, dig their own ditches and sewers, log onto WebMD or is it that some things are best and most efficienty accomplished with a collective effort.

It's not. Socialist policies are adopted by the richest countries in the world to help build roads, fund schools, police, firefighters, government, universal health care, etc. for the greater good of society. Tyranny has nothing to do with this.
