I don't remember there being so many Socialists in America as I grew up.
They are everywhere. I was at a Boy Scout thing today and this woman I have known for years started telling me her political views. She said something to me and I said, "No, I get it. It's called Socialism".
She looked at me blank faced for a minute, surprised I'd called her a Socialist. And I repeated, "Your views have a name. Socialism."
We steered the conversation elsewhere.
This is not a dumb woman by any stretch. Yet she seemed stunned to be told her views were what they were.Posted by Boudicca at November 21, 2015 10:22 PM
