    See this is what I don't understand in this country, if there were no foodstamps, social security, medicare, universal education, .. shall I go on--we would be living in a communist country, and there would be a revolution. True capitalists know this and support taxes on the wealthy, universal health care, etc... so that everyone is not too poor to cause a revolution en masse. Capitalism with no restraints always leads to this--complete social collapse and a move toward communist rule. It just surprises me that the very people who say they love the capitalist system most are the very ones who are destroying it from within.
