My uncle forwarded an email to a bunch of folks, and I really had to respond.   He's my mom's oldest brother, and like the rest of my family he grew up in Kansas, but now lives in Montana along with most of his children.   I now live in Michigan, and my siblings are on either coast, which means we are all in blue states these days.

I'm posting this in case others would like some ideas on rebutting cries of 'Socialism!' from ill-informed and misguided relatives.   And I think I can say with confidence that we all have a few.

Join me over the flip for what he sent me, and what I sent back.
