The S-Word

The Dad gave permission for me to post his letter to the Boston Globe:
Many naysayers are hysterical in their fear that SOCIALISM could infect our health care system. Of course it already has, in the form of Medicare.

Following the arguments of the fearmongers, we should eliminate not only Medicare, but also other nefarious tax-supported schemes such as free public schools, public libraries and public roads & highways. Each of these should be replaced by a system of user fees.

As always, he's brief and pithy. Thanks, Dad.
