Re: Socialism?

Anything that gives government control over any economic sector, unrelated to their primary role of enforcing laws and ensuring public safety, sure is socialism.

Socialism really got its start with the 16th Amendment. It enshrines the second plank of communism in the US Constitution ("[a] heavy progressive or graduated income tax"); it also removed the requirement for income tax to be apportioned among the states and made the federal income tax permanent (which was originally unconstitutional to do).
