    DG, you really know better!(I hope)! This "soschulism" crap is just an emotional trigger word that gets the uneducated dullards all panty wadded up. Its been a Rethuglican tactic for decades now. Do you think that the Scandanavian nations are under a despotic, crushing regime? No, they practice 'democratic socialism' that the people vote on.It has NOTHING to do with Communism or fascism!

    Labels(words) often conjure up images(sterotypes)the belie the true meaning and is used a great deal by the right to get the peasants all outraged!

    It can lead to terrible WITCH HUNTS like Mccarhyism, and Reagan's Screen Actors Guild fiasco, and Nixon's HUAC persecuting innocent people all for dirty political purposes!

    It is SO DIVISIVE it hardly bears mentioning!

    Words like socialism and Marx do indeed seem to trigger very emotional reactions from the left that supports those things and the result is lashing out at the right. Why is that?

    If the Socialists in the former Dem party don't want to answer for the issues of socialism every time it has been tried then that is fine.

    You should also to be consistent and cease the Nazi references to Trump and the GOP. Very recently you called them the "Reich Wing". That is the height of hypocrisy. What is outstanding is unlike the Dems openly calling themselves Socialist, no on in the GOP even compares themselves to Nazis, (why would they since the Nazis were a party of the left)>

    Bottom line not only doesn't Socialism work, not matter if it is applied by Stalin, Pol Pot, Mao or Hitler, Castro, Chaves or even Jenny from the Block it also kills!

    While I say that and mean it, I do recognize different agendas. The left wants big central government to push social welfare if not communism, the right social mores and community.

    Bingo Chris! I love how they actually advocate for these things yet deny they advocate for these things? Puzzling....

    How were any of these a threat to the fabric of the country? How was Reagan's whatever-it-was-you're-talking-about or Nixon's whatever-it-was-you're-talking-about divisive?

    Did those people vote on taking in Arab refugees? Chavez and Maduro had the people vote. Not much of a selection. Moreover.....they continue to move left. Anything left of Democratic Socialism is Communism.

    Oh and as others pointed out. Its the left embracing Socialism. Has nothing to do with any Labels coming from the Right.


    The DNC chair said.....its the future of that Demo Party.


    As usual only the Deviate Demos try and project what they are into.....onto others. Then look to blame others for what comes out of their own mouths.
