So who is the bad guy? Is it the people that want the social programs trashed or the politician that wants the social programs trashed? Ask yourself, who started this socialism is bad craze? You either don't remember, or you remember it was your politician when he/she sent word either on TV, radio, or Internet to you that people don't want a socialist system in place. But who called the United States a "want to be" socialist country? It was again the politicians back in 2015-2016 when Bernie Sanders was running for election. The politicians decided that socialism had no place in the U.S. and the U.S. wasn't going to have it. (Purdue said not on his watch) It had nothing to do with the people. They had no say so. If you ask the people they or at least many don't even know what that means to them in the United States. The majority were just pushing the politician points.
