To the editor: I read Jack Strausser’s article in the Tuesday, Aug. 24, edition of The News-Item in which he obviously is in favor of socialism and gives examples of it in our government.

He writes about how we must pay taxes, obey traffic lights and enjoy the benefits of government programs, such as Social Security and welfare funds. Basically, saying that Big Brother is there to protect us and provide for our welfare.
