When will this “road to serfdom” nonesense end? Probably never. Republicans love it too much, along with the claim that America is becoming just like Europe, and not in a good way.
The latest is Bobby Jindal, another GOP presidential hopeful with absolutely no reason for hope. On a radio program in New York on Sunday Jindal accused President Obama and former secretary of State Hillary Clinton of dragging America to socialism.
“I’m running [for president] because I want to stop President Obama and Secretary Clinton from turning the American dream into the European nightmare . . . We are on the path towards socialism. It’s not too late but the hour is late.”
Oh, please. You are not on the path to socialism, and I say that as someone who wishes you were. Americans can’t even wrap their heads around the need for a single-layer-health-system like so many other civilized countries.
The hour is indeed late, but not in the way Jindal thinks.
