The spectre of communism is invoked at every turn, but when you ask people how they might feel about losing police, and schools, and firefighters, and roads...suddenly state run safety nets don't seem so bad. Yet, at one point, all of those institutions were privatized; fighters from a fire company from which you did not have coverage would watch your home burn, waiting only to make sure it didn't spead to houses they DID cover.
Now, such a system is unthinkable. In time, nation-wide healthcare will be the same.
I have heard that firemen will let houses that dont pay for fire department crud burn if you're outside the district/at its limits, or something of the sort.

So, paraphrasing. . .
Rob: Man, I'm sick and tired of conservative asshole "X". I think he's a hypocrite an an attention whore so I'm not gonna say who it is.
Ethan: Hey, everyone! I am an attention whore so I'm telling everyone I'm conservative asshole "X"! Now, my poorly socialized fans, go forth and harass Rob so Bleeding Cool will run a story about ME."
. . . .
Never thought I've ever be so solidly on Rob's side about anything before.
The funny thing is I honestly thought the Rob was a conservative himself.
Can someone ask Grant Morrison to give me a haircut?
