    And if anyone is unconvinced of this, just ask the people here to define "Socialism." They never can.

    Indeed.

    ďAsked about their impression of socialism, only about a quarter of Americans (28%) said they have a favorable view, while almost 6-in-10 (58%) said they had an unfavorable impression.Ē

    Thatís why I posted, go Bernie, go.

    He has no chance of winning a national election with those numbers.

    Go Bernie, you would be the easiest to beat...in a landslide.

    Um...wrong, Pebble by pebble.

    Socialism is an economic unit where goods and services are controlled by the state.

    It’s very close to Communism where goods and services are owned by the state.

    Control is very close to ownership.

    Why would you believe that conservatives are dumber than you?

    No, it doesnít get old.

    Itís a shining example of bloody Socialism...death and starvation. There are other examples of the failure of Socialism. Socialism light will not happen in America.

    What Democrats are supporting is a stone Socialist, the old fanatic Bernie. Free everything until it isnít free.

    Thre is no Socialism. There has never been socialism. Just like we are not a Democracy. Just labels that cannot resist scrutiny. We are much similar to the other capitalist countries except they spread the fruits of their economic system across the people more fairly. Why the working class, the poor and the middle-class vote to have the wealthy take the profits from our system is a mystery. But name-calling the other countries as Socialist somehow scares the people from demanding fairer and better treatment here. It makes no sense. We are so easily suckered into voting against our own interests.

    Spoken like a true socialist. No wonder he thinks he's owed something. He doesn't have a clue as to what he's demanding.

    I don't have one anymore because the word means nothing now. It was used too many different ways for too long. This is why you never see me call someone or something "Socialist."

    If he was describing someone who doesn't use the word, Socialist, sure.

    According to the Unhinged Right, it seems like "Socialism" is whatever they need it to be at whatever time.
