Socialism is a word a lot of citizens fear, but Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Food Stamps, military and other social programs administered by the U.S. government are all socialistic aid the U.S. uses.

Linda Weston pled guilty on Wednesday for stealing over $200,000 in Social Security benefits from disabled people. She and her co-conspirators held disabled adults and their children captive for roughly a decade.
"Saving Social Security for future generations is far more popular than any of them ever will be." So remember that this is the best financial decision and vote accordingly.
