Socialism is problem, not solution

A recent letter writer supports socialist Bernie Sanders, and that's his right. He likes socialism and says most Americans don't understand it. I understand it and don't like it. Sanders is a nice guy, but he's dreaming when he thinks our government should provide everything to everybody for free. Nothing is free, somebody has to pay for it, and there aren't enough rich folks to pick up the tab. Socialism didn't make this country great. The letter writer won't like this, but capitalism and individual freedom made us great. Remove a citizen's incentive to "get ahead" and redistribute his wealth to others, and you will destroy America. The letter said capitalism "in the extreme defines dictatorship" but overlooked the Soviet Union, China, North Korea, Vietnam and Cuba, which are all socialist and are dictatorships. Karl Marx was a socialist, though he called his system Communism and said the "dictatorship of the proletariat" was necessary to make everything perfect. Communism is socialism in its purest form, and when I worked for your FBI, we investigated Communists because they were considered evil and thought to pose a threat to our freedom. Were we wrong? I don't think so.
