Billy has some problems With Dale Franks suggesting that First, Socialism is an economic system, and is not particularly related to a particular tax system.”

I’m not sure, here, Billy. I’ve gotta tell ya that I’ve always considered that socialism was in fact an economic system, albeit a fraudulant one… and was centered, not in theory, but in real world application, around who gets the money. Invariably, it ends up being the ones at the top of the supposedly non-existant pile.  We see that real-word application being applied increasingly, the world over to varied degrees. I’m unconvinced that in the end it was ever anything more or less.

Now… as to the rest of your argument, it looks from here like your larger concern is what you didn’t quote… the incrimental argument… and we’ve had that discussion before.
