You're invited to participate in a moderated discussion of how Gaetz' criticisms of Austin and the Biden Administration beg an elucidating set of questions to be put before Gaetz, the Biden Administration, and US citizenry regarding the US military and US strategic aims.

Here are four prompt questions for this evening's moderated roundtable:
1) Define Socialism
2) Distinguish Socialism from Democratic Socialism
3) Distinguish sales taxes, income taxes, and other taxes in terms of socialism
4) Distinguish land value tax (LVT) from other taxes, and how LVT distinguishes itself from those taxes as a distinctive sort of socialism

Taxes are socialist in their very nature. Which sort of socialist are you, Matt Gaetz, Sec. Austin, President Biden?

Be prepared to speak and listen to criticism of Gaetz and Austin's notions of US military strategic purposes.
