in the current GOP definition anyway.


Security and Freedom (from the Road to Serfdom)
----
There is no reason why, in a society which has reached the general level of wealth ours has, (the certainty of a given minimum of sustenance) should not be guaranteed to all without endangering general freedom; that is: some minimum of food, shelter and clothing, sufficient to preserve health. Nor is there any reason why the state should not help to organize a comprehensive system of social insurance in providing for those common hazards of life against which few can make adequate provision.

the keyword here was in fact "GOP definition".

I don't think GOP definition requires that constraint. There, any redistribution is socialism :)

GOP is outdated. The problem is that many democrats are GOPs deep inside.
