      My neighbor's expensive smart phone and electronic cigarette was stolen yesterday. When he started complaining to me I explained to him that it was really just "redistribution of wealth" and the only difference between what happened to him and socialism was that he didn't have a gun pointed at his head.

      That's what your simple mind can't understand, it directly addresses your post, this article and your political affiliation.
