I use the word socialism because that is precisely where we are not only headed, but currently are. Regardless an interesting link provided to me by a reader, Brian, provides not only additional proof that socialism is being implemented, but also proves;
1. Detroit sucks
2. Places that we crazy with the housing also suck
3. The rest of the country is paying to create jobs for Washington bureaucrats
4. Portland is a place I never plan to visit nor invest in.
The chart is a bit large, but it's insightful.
