Well, actually Howard Dean dares speak it quite a bit: We’re going to be socialist.
Oh, don’t get him wrong; we’ll still have capitalism. Just, you know, enough capitalism to finance the Democrats’ socialist schemes. The problem is, that kind of thing has a limited shelf life, as the public “option” (and we’re not just talking health insurance here) eventually crowds out private enterprise. And in the end, you’re left with neither socialism not capitalism — just bankruptcy.
Still, it’s nice of the good doctor to be so honest about his party’s intentions.
