The majority of Americans support socialist programs- from universal health care to affirmative action programs to investments in education.
Most Americans support universal health insurance, but not affirmative action. If you doubt this, ask any white person who's scored 100% on the applicant exam for either the police or fire departments and been rejected simply because he/she is WHITE.
Americans, who support investments in education slave at work each day so that their kids can attend private schools, either in the City or suburbs. They don't go to City Hall, walking around with signs on their backs begging...begging and more begging.
Guess what! Cambridge, Ma does not represent the USA in the slightest. Just check out their goofy Mayor or their ridiculous police Department. Or if that isn't enough, all the slobs at Central Square sitting around all day long begging for money.
