Regarding "Socialists nearly nonexistent in mainstream U.S. politics" (July 27, Page B-7): Are you kidding me? Half of the Democratic Party are socialists, including Barack Obama! The liberals in Washington champion collectivist, big-government ideals like universal health care and redistribution of wealth. And they keep the country in a constant state of class warfare, demonizing wealthy people and corporations. Profit, free trade, small government and less taxes are profane and blasphemous ideals in their minds' eyes.
