. . . or Nirvana, or the Left's day-dream . . . and the price of gasoline will be pegged by the government at $1.00 a gallon, everyone will have free access to a state-run healthcare system, and everyone (but the intelligentsia and commissars, of course) will be paid the same "living wage" regardless of differences in what they do or how well they do it. The result? Gas will be available only on the black market, there will be less healthcare (and what there is will be lousy), and the American standard of living will be reduced to a depth not reached during the Great Depression. But Leftists, naifs (that's most Americans), and power-crazed politicians will be happy -- because government is doing something!
