13. Yes, it says we shall always be stuck in an oppositional politics

Can we stop the capitalism VS socialism thing?

Letís innovate!

I like the new model where REGENERATIVE INFRASTRUCTURE is at the core of every democracy (and includes a constitution, courts, elections, wind/solar grid regulations, mass transit, affordable college tuition, net neutrality, trust-busting, etc.), and a CIVIC FREE ENTERPRISE circles the former.

6. These assholes are so dishonest they tell people that "socialism" equates a "Marxist regime."

Yeah, I'd love to live under those "Marxist" hellholes of Denmark, Sweden, Norway & Finland for 6 months. Or forever.

8. Socialist aren't Marxists, you stupid, fucking ass...

No more than all capitalists are brown shirted fascists. All it takes is a few clicks on the google, along with 6th grade reading comprehension. Of course, that might take the energy necessary to fire a few neurons. Too much to ask I guess.

14. Charlie, get out of your moms basement, stop playing

16. All democracies have elements of socialism ingrained in them

It comes with the understanding that we are all in this together.
A democracy is a cooperative venture of a large group of people that, by its very nature, is concerned about the welfare of all of its citizens.
Marxism is not socialistic. It is a dictatorship of a small, privileged group that falsely claims to stand for the good of all, while curtailing personal freedom in favor of maintaining the rigid ideology of the Marxist dogma.
Democracies, on the other hand, are socialistic in nature. There is an inherent belief that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, and that we have a responsibility to help each other to sustain what we have.
We are stronger when we stand together...all of us together.
In that combined strength is a willingness to allow people to be who they are, and an understanding that it is our diversity that is our strength.

17. I agree with both, the problem is that what repubs call socialism

is not socialism, true socialism is just a theory that doesn't exist anywhere in the world, what does exist is social-democratic regimes that create an almost perfect balance as many European countries have demonstrated.

Every communist (dictatorship) regime starts with socialist rhetoric, once the "socialists" get to power it immediately moves to a communist-dictatorship that includes repression, corruption at the highest levels, the elimination of the middle class, anyway...look at Russia, at Venezuela, at Cuba, that is where "socialism" ends, in a perverse dictatorship that resembles more the Nazi regime of Hitler, than anything else.

And that is why I responded to many people, here in DU, when they used to defend Hugo Chavez, to move to Venezuela for just a couple of weeks to experience firsthand for themselves the regime, and if they were able to come back alive, then to tell us about it.

Now, should people spend six months in one of the social-democratic countries in Europe? Most definitely!

18. OK, I'll move to Denmark.

Higher taxes, more government services, much more socialist, and one of the happiest countries in the world!

19. Just a point: The Democratic Party is not socialist.

It believes the few social programs the country has, as a safety net in our capitalist economy. But it's not socialist.

Don't let them get away with portraying the Democratic Party that way. It's a whistle call.
