I know this will be an extremely unpopular opinion, but I want to voice it and then read the feed back. I have found that this is a very good way to learn about a subject rather than just reading definitions in some book. First though before you start questioning my patriotism, I am a proud American and veteran. Some are really coming on strong with the socialism issue. I have been reading encyclopedia entries and am not for sure that "nationalization" wouldnt be in this countries best intrest. I know it goes against the free market society we are founded upon but after the last energy crisis and what can only be explained as "gouging" by the oil industry the goverment may need to step in. As in the UK the industries required for the nation to operate the Govt steps in, such as the USPS. I could be incredibly wrong and I am sure many will let me know. But I feel this is a good a place as any to hear both sides of the argument (if there are two sides) LOL.
