Actaully, Chris, you are missing my point: Your very security is socialized. Your foods - regardless of whether they are meat or not - are part of a rigorous governmental food safety program, and many crops are subsidized by governmental subsidies. I appreciate your family's service. I'm sure your family appreciates my serving in the Navy. But spouting right-wing bumper stickers screaming about socialism without acknowledging the benefits you receive from large governmental programs like these is problematic, wouldn't you agree?

Chris, let me help you out here...this one's a freebie, so don't think your family has to repay their dues for it, but.....not to be a stickler for grammar or anything...... could you please recount for me the tales of the multiple Battles of Natick your family has fought in? I think you MEANT to say that your family, which is from Natick, has fought in 2 World Wars and in Korea. I'd hate to see what condition Natick would be in if so many battles were actually fought there.

This is a post about the debate. Not about people's families. All posters: please keep the personal attacks out of your comments and focus on national politics.

What is as clear as day, is that Mitt Romney is trying to let people know, that there has been a huge perception around the globe for many years now, that many folks here in The United States of America, have had a sense of entitlement that many do strongly believe is owed to each and everyone of them by Our Government. Unless your sleepwalking here in The States, its has been quite noticeable over the years, nothing more, just a factoid or two on that very state of being, that's all.....Enjoy!
