This may be a surprise to some of you, or probably to most of you. Did you know that Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barrack Obama, all retired U.S. congressmen, all retired civil servants of the state and federal government, all Texas retired teachers, and all legless or armless veterans on 100 percent VA disability are socialists?

This revelation came to me through these comments from a reader, “Your O6 (colonel) military retirement pay is at least 100K per year. I know my son is O5 (lieutenant colonel). You probably also have Medicare, Social Security and VA benefits. How can you publicly bemoan ‘socialism’ when your ‘nest egg’ is just that. Shame on you.”
