>By following the lessons taught by the NH vs. VT lesson

That's a very good point. It's an opportunity for a "West Germany vs. East Germany" semi-controlled experiment.
Yes, that's a good analogy.

Which brings up a good point; if there were any honest Socialists they would want to see a purely capitalist country exist as a "control group" for their ideas.  

So where are all these honest Socialists?  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
I vaguely remember reading about a conversation between an American capitalist and Russian communist years ago, while the Cold War was still ongoing. The Russian said that it was inevitable that the Communists would succeed and take over all of Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, Latin America and Canada. "And then would you take over the U.S.?" says the American. "Oh no," says the Russian, "we'll need to keep at least one nation capitalist so our central planners will know how to price our goods."

But maybe it was just a joke or illustrative story, I don't remember. At least the point is valid, and if a socialist ever did say something like that then there would be at least one honest socialist.  ;D

Freedomroad, "We are speaking of the same type of people.  Look at the support for Nader and other socialists like Al Gore and Teddy Killwomandy in the Northeast.  It is huge!  Hillary Clinton, another socialist is very popular in much of New England."

I'm not talking about people who received votes, FreedomRoad, I'm talking about people who are in office and will fight the FSP tooth and nail. And I notice you failed to mention GW "Patriot Act I & II" Bush. If Al Gore is a socialist then GW is a National Socialist and a Reconstructionist.

Right, the people that win and are in office, like Teddy, John Kerry, Hillary, Howard Dean (not currently in office), Schumer,  Leahy, and Bernie.  These are some of the people that the Northeast loves.  IMHO, Bush is not a socialist.  He is a statist or conservative (depending on how you look at it.)  IMHO, Gore is a statist or a socialist, depending on how you look at it.  

I think Gore is much closer to being a national socialist than Bush (since Gore is a socialist).  Also, the people of the Northeast do not support Bush (as a whole), so why would I mention him if I was talking about socialists that are popular in the Northeast?
