Letter: Halfway to a socialist paradise

What, you don't remember the Democratic Socialist Party that took over Germany in the '30s? How about the Socialist party that took over Italy, Venezuela or Greece?

We now experience just half of what it would be like compared to a total socialist country. Where brilliant minds become elected officials and bureaucrats making life-changing decisions that affect only the people who live under them.

A recent headline: 5 percent of all working Americans make only $30,000 a year. This is the best they can do. Are we all willing to earn just what the government grants us or earn what our talents and intelligence will give us?
