Is the United States slipping towards becoming a socialist state?

I see it happening in the next 100 years. The common person's rights are slow eroding away.

    unfortunetly yes we are,

    more and more the public seems to want to take less responsibility for their actions and let "big brother" solve it for them. God help us all...

    My next door neighbor lived to be 94, he read everything in every National Geographic, Times or Newsweek and could ask you questions on every article to see if you had too. He would go on about how with a one room schoolhouse eductation a lot of the kids went on to build the greatest nation on earth (his opinion), and without all the laws we have today that he said was killing us. He grew up on a farm and had one until dairying got so bad he sold it and went to work on the state road crew. Taxes and government policies are what put most farmers out of business, now everyone whines about preserving "open space" when they didn't care about preserving the people and practices that had maintained it for centuries. Everything has to be done by the government, everyone runs to the government for solutions, and as my neighbor used to point out about the growth of the "nanny state", "A government that can do anything for you, can DO anything to YOU." The joke has always been that if the USA and USSR/Russia survived long enough they would become indistinguishable as one loosened up and the other grew more anal. Thank goodness Putin threw everything there in reverse, huh?

    And 100 years ago, some other guy must have thought the exact same thing (with different wording, perhaps). Funny how it hasn't happened.

    Most definitely, and sadly the same ones claiming civil rights are going away are the same folks that will turn around and demand more federal interference in social issues.

    The US ,like Russia and China , just too big and with too many people , to be generalised into one entity.

    We should be so lucky. More likely, it's becoming a fascist state ... run by two or three mega corporations, and two classes of inhabitants: the very rich and the very poor.

    As long as politicians embrace the poor who don't desire to work themselves out of poverty, we surely will.

    More and more money will be asked of those who do work for a living to support those who won't.

    unfortunantly I see this coming from both sides of the aisle.
