Tom Marier’s “No to Democratic Socialism” Letter to the Editor in the April 2 edition of the San Clemente Times was obviously submitted before America turned socialist.

A large portion of the population has been directed to stay home by our state and federal governments, which will be mailing us checks/free money to insure our now-dead economy survives to rise again—once the spread of the virus is contained. 

When will that be? Not even our Lord knows. 

So, until then, my new-socialist friends and neighbors, let’s clasp our virtual hands together and hold on tight, because even though some resist (World to Tom) in accepting our new social order, we are all socialists now.
