My son, I asked him how many times I needed to tell him not to do something before he understood, and we narrowed it down to 10 times. So now I ask him "Do you need me to ask you that 10 times, or are we good?" And he gets the point quicker.

If I can find out what some of you guys' currencies are, I'll start to use it.
Ok I will say this, Obama is not a member of the Socialist party but his policies (and McCains for that matter) leave nothing to the imagination and you can draw no other conclusions that he is in favor of Big Government, Government run Businesses, and a much heavier hand of Government in people's private lives as well as business lives. That is what socialism does. If it were based on Nationalism it would be Fascism. So hence we were faced with a choice of McCain (Fascism) and Obama (Socialism). In the end Socialism will always be easier to defeat.

Well I'm not an expert by any means, but I don't think we're in any danger of becoming the type of socialist society that completely erodes individual incentive to achieve. This is the squabbling of the uninformed. I won't say how or why, but trust me when I tell you that rich people aren't concerned about Obama because he's a socialist, or McCain because he's a fascist. Most rich people (not the uber-rich/famous/philanthropic rich) are concerned about the bottom line, to the exclusion of anyone or anything else. Their votes are based on who takes less of their pile of marbles, and secondarily, who creates more opportunities to cash in on the public at large with the least amount of effort.
