Accusations of “Socialism,” and the Dustbin of History

Before there was Glenn Beck, there was Ronald Reagan, red baiter:

“[I]f you don’t [stop Medicare] and I don’t do it, one of these days you and I are going to spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it once was like in America when men were free.”

The problem with slippery slope arguments is that, when society doesn’t fall down the slope, you’re left looking like a fool.

  1. Why are people still listening to Regan. Even if what he said at the time was correct, he is 20+ years out of date. Times change, move on.
