Conservatism: We give most of the riches to the rich, who also happen to be closely associated with the state; who will sprinkle a few "trickled down" drops to you suckers.

Socialism: We give most of the properties to the states, whose top officials happen to reap most of the benefits; the state will sprinkle a few "trickled down" drops to you suckers.

Communism: We all have to work and share our profits evenly, except for a few rich individuals who will reap most of the benefits. Those individuals will sprinkle a few "trickled down" drops to you suckers.

Yeah, so what's the difference?

Why right-wingers can't open their mouth without telling lies?? It's like they enjoy being completely wrong.

Bernie called himself a Socialist Democrat. His policies are social democratic policy. I know there is a 99% chance you have no idea what socialist democracy is.

It if looks likes a cow, eats grass like a cow and moo's like a cow... it's probably a cow.

Look how many left wingers believe every conservative is a racist, HRC called 65M voters deplorable and irredeemable and you all applauded her.
Considering the events that have taken place since, I say HRC was absolutely spot on. She saw it coming a long mile away.

I am pretty sure you are not referring to the arrogant hypocrite sitting in the Oval office, which means the irony is completely lost on you.

I'd bet that 80% of people who happily claim to be "progressives' don't have a clue what it actually means, or the agenda of those at the top of the progressive pyramid have in mind; the insidious orchestration of an unsuspecting herd.
Just because you don't know what Progressives mean doesn't mean the rest of us who lives in the real world don't.

This is why the stupid are always kept stupid, and sacrificed at a moments notice. And they will smile and cheer as they are dragged away to be slaughter.

Nice how feminism is the first item on your list that poor people need to be concerned with. Poor and uneducated conservatives want a job. Poor and uneducated liberals want a handout. Either way I don't feminism is a big priority.

Its the same thing. Only difference a Social Democrat is voted into office whereas a Socialist usually gets in power via a coup. Its just a more politically correct way of achieving the same results. The state over the individual.

List of countries that have social democratic parties:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_Democratic_Party

Counties I don't want us to mirror include Belarus, Afghanistan, Mexico, Rwanda, etc. Bernie is likeable but to be like Belarus no.

Poor and being woman is a condition as is poor and black, poor and Hispanic, and they all have to deal with issues that poor and white do not. I know you think that it is elitist to think that way but that is because you do not, do not care to, understand. Sad.

This is a perfect example of the Right's stupidity. Instead of talking about Social Democracy, this post instead lists the countries that have a Social Democratic party. As if that proves something.

Basically, instead of talking about, say what a Porche is like, the poster instead lists countries that have Porche clubs and say he doesn't like those countries so the Porche must be a bad car.

Do you know that countries that have Republican parties include Liberia, India, and Pakistan??

Using this poster's logic, if you don't like Pakistan's economy then you would hate the Republican party.

Time to wise up. Listen to those who are doing the research, studying the problem, proposing solutions. Unfortunately lack of education, and brainwashed minds, have made this useful, life saving, information inaccessible to poor whites. All they know is talk radio and religion. Sad.
Holy crap. You sound just like talk radio. I mean seriously, "poor whites....hate all minorities".

Wtf racist.

the poor come in all shades, their common problem is poverty. White people are the major listeners of talk radio. Certainly not the immigrants.
And indeed talk radio is definitely racist.
