    If a Republican called me a socialist, I would wear that as a badge of honor.

    I would thank them, I would say I am proud to support social security and Medicare. I am proud I want health care for all Americans. I am proud I want a clean environment. If that's socialism, then I am proud to be a socialist.



    The Democrats in congress need to learn how to fight when the Republicans label them is these simplistic ways. The Democrats run scared when the Republicans try to label them. That's why it works.
    Right. Jack*sses hope we think all they want are "social security, medicare, healthcare, and a clean environment" when people are hoodwinked by those who advocate for SOCIALISM and a SOCIALIST agenda. Then they get in, have the majority and push ahead with true socialism even though most people do not want it.

    Jack*sses are hoping people are dumb to their plans. And when it is shown that they are not they start mocking them to obscure their true agenda.

    5. There's a big difference between a Social Democrat as in western Europe...

    and a socialist. Social Democratic countries are thriving capitalist societies which are well regulated and taxed to rrovide generous soccial services like free health care and education for its citizwnsl

    In socialist countryies on the other hand, the state owns the means of production . The state doles our goods and services to the people—fron each according to his/her ability, to each according to his need

    You sure you want that?
    Democratic socialist or Democrat socialist is just one step toward full on socialist. It's the throwing the frog in cold water and then slowly heating the water..........and the frog is deceived and doesn't jump out and then it's too late to do so.

    6. The label is political poison, tho the substance is popular

    We need a new name.
    Right call it something different to obscure the truth. Just like climate warming, climate change et.al.

    13. My post is a response of sarcasm. Mock their simplistic, stupid labeling.

    instead why don't we come back at the repugs by telllig them to stop advocating fascism, which is what trump and his sycophants are doing.
    Fascism:
    fascism


    [fash-iz-uh m]



    noun

    ( sometimes initial capital letter ) a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism.



    https://www.dictionary.com/browse/fascism
    It's Democrats who want complete power as long as it is THEY who have the power and who are even NOW forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism - shouting down conservative speakers and even going so far to riot to keep them from speaking, defining MAGA gear as "hate" and deserving of beating someone up, banning conservatives from social media, defining all beliefs that are not appropriately liberal as "hate" to justify shutting down their ability to speak, etc. It is Democrats who want more and more regulations and rules for business and commerce and make them beholden to the government. And liberals "nationalism" is adherence to a secular leftist society and hostility to religion and their growing racism toward white people, especially white men and their growing antisemitism.

    It is Democrats who are fascist, and there's no obscuring that fact.

    As an aside the leftist site Wikipedia adds to the definition "right wing" although that is not part of the definition of fascist. That site cannot be relied upon for accurate information if there is anything political about the subject.

    Socialists have slaughtered something like 100M in the past 102 years, ignoring Hitler's National Socialism. My Grandmother lost her brothers to Stalin's Socialism. Socialism has been the most murderous philosophy in human history. I do not have polite words for shockey80's assaholic ignorance. And don't want to cause SR or SLW to have to edit my post.

    Note to "Warpy" and "shockey80": I voted for Donald Trump! I would do so again!

    First these assholes don't know what Socialism or Fascism are ( they always seem to get it wrong ).
    Second, they always see themselves as the guy in charge, instead of being a farmhand on turnip farm like they envision for you.
    Third, I never met a Socialist who didn't want to be rich; they hate the idea of you wanting the same thing.

    DUmmies, I hope all of you and your ilk make tons of
    money and are willing to see it all taken away from you
    no matter how hard you work! Oh wait...all your Socialist
    heaven is supposed to be "free".

    What happens when all you rich Socialists run out of money???
    Or are you creeps "special" and don't have to pay? So who will
    pay??? Is oBAMA going to pay?? Is Kerry??? Is AlGore???

    Don't kid yourselves you morons. You know what you are
    going to get??? The living shit taxed out of you. And you'll
    all bow down to AOC as she takes your $$$ and gives you
    back a Degree in "Climate Change". A degree that will of
    course be worthless.

    But your Socialist Leaders will keep getting richer and you
    idiots will just call Trump evil to make yourselves "feel"
    better.

    Good luck with that pipe dream.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    No edit needed. I agree totally with you.

    We live in such a little bubble in our daily lives, blissfully not confronted YET with the curses of socialism. Right now it's "just" death by a thousand little blows.

    This week I was at the podiatrist and talked to one of his assistants. She is from Bosnia. At first we talked about her trip to Bosnia to visit relatives still there. Then the talk turned grim, talking about how her mother is so quiet, still with the memories of what had happened during the Bosnian war. She talked of rape (I'm presuming of her mom) and how babies would be raped and otherwise attacked just to torture the parents viewing this.

    We cannot let our company drift to socialism. Things won't return to the old Ozzie and Harriet days, but our country is still the best in the world and needs to stay that way. We don't need to become Venezuela or descend to the European countries that are reaping the whirlwind with their too liberal immigration policies.

    Go to Gatestone.com and see what's going on in Europe. It's chilling. We can't be an ostrich and put our collective heads in the sand.
