    who love using exclamation marks and rhetorical questions in their writing. They use them so much, the devices are no longer effective--no more emphasis. As a result, I tell them they can only use them once per paper.

    I would like to lump "Socialism" with this rule. The Rebublicans have used the term so much as a bogeyman scare that it has lost its emphasis and is no longer scary. Especially since some apparently socialist nations have better health than we do.
