Obama. The Worst President in American History?


#455

Dont forget roads.


#456

Yes, the roads. How else are the socialist police going to get to there socialist police stations. :grin:

Oh have to understand that most conservatives define “socialism” differently than moderates and liberals. Here, let me help you out.

Liberal/Moderate: Socialism is that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.

Conservative: Socialism is any govt spending or program except ones that I agree with.


#458

About the only 2 countries that are truly free of socialism are Somalia and the Sudan.


#459

I understand that, you needed to see who I was responding to to understand my statement.


#460

Using an actual dictionary, with definitions, is not fair. :wink:


#461

He was the one I was actually posting to. Hopefully he gets the message.


#462

I never said America was a Socialist country???


#463

You said this:

Sounds like you are saying that the US was non-Socialist.


#464

You’re right. The US has never been a Socialist country, and I never said that it was.


#465

Liberal/Moderate: Socialism is a way that we can be a one Party system,
and the Liberals have all of the power and take everything over, and everyone
counts on them for everything.

Conservatives: Socialism is the opposite of what has worked in America, and is the opposite of what makes America so great.

Is Ocasio a socialist because she wants to raise top marginal rates to 70% on $10 million+ ?


#467

The US has incorporated elements of socialism since it’s inception. We’re currently a mixed economy, incorporating elements of capitalism and socialism.


#468

No. But that doesn’t help either.
She’s A Socialist, because she admits to believing in Socialism for America.


#469

First Socialism, and then Communism comes next.


#470

More conservative camp fire scare stories.


#471

Especially considering its never ever worked like that.


#472

It’s nice and cozy by the fire.

Ganna roast me smore Dem Marshmallows.


#473

What countries has full fledged Socialism and not just bits and pieces of Socialism
worked for again?


#474

Ok, so your point is that adopting certain socialist programs will not lead a country to full blown socialism. I agree. So let’s stop with the slippery slope socialism cries and evaluate each program in its own merit.

Socialized medicine seems to be working for most countries.
