Socialism is workers owning the means of production. Nothing to do with taxes nor the government.

99% of the people have no clue what socialism means.

The guy totally owned the ignorant interviewer !!!

The idiot interviewer doesn't know the VA benefits were earned. If that wasn't the case anyone could get VA benefits !!! People have to preform often at lower wages and heaver work loads to get VA benefits !!!

They guy with the sign may not be the best at explaining his beliefes but he is on the right side of the issue !!!

The false accusation on the perceived racist comment is noted !!!

There was a bar off 88th and Washington in Thornton Co. with the name "The Ghetto" !!! It was there for 50 years and wouldn't have been allowed if it was racist !!!
It would have violate city policy !!!
So what is it ?
Is the word community now racist or just when the two words are connected ? Absurd in the extreme !!!

You were reaching OP with this thread and got a handful of desperation and lunacy !!! Good job !!!

Looks like you are one of the best the left has !!! I celebrate you and hope to see more !!!

Its always pleasant to see the left running campaign adds for Trump !!!

Comments...

Lie by the host - the debt has not doubled.

Why are people living paycheck to paycheck? Could be a myriad of reasons ranging from people mismanaging their own money , lack of education to get a better job, government regulations forcing higher prices on goods and services...

2:45 - Note how the host twists his answers - the guy never said that we have fewer people on welfare than we ever have in history.

The guy answering the questions in not uneducated. The host is just trying to make him look stupid. A lame attempt to mimic what those on the right do - when they find liberals who know absolutely nothing about basic issues.

No one is advocating for the workers to take over the means of production. That you are afraid of the workers taking over at a time when the ultra wealthy are more powerful than ever is absurd. Even if a so-called "far left candidate" wins, the super rich have enormous control over Congress, the judiciary and the economy to make sure that workers will still be at a massive disadvantage and there will be no meaningful increase in benefits for the disabled, the sick and the poor, calm down.

At best, you might see a public option happen in 10 years time after big pharma and the insurance industry have spent billions fighting against it. But even that is unlikely even if a "far left candidate" becomes president. Thats how much power the billionaire class have compared to regular Joe Sixpack.

Progressivism is a stepping stone to socialism, which in turn is a stepping stone to communism.

It's one of those terms that's meaning has changed in the modern American lexicon .

You know.......like the way you guys call people Nazis who aren't actually Nazis....

So getting nitpicky over whether or not someone is using the dictionary definition to your approval is rather petty and irrelevant.

Socialism, like so many other "isms" is very complex in nature. And nowhere near as simple as you state. It's a demonstration of cluelessness in itself.

That doesnt make sense. A proper government public safety net, like FDR advocated, is intended to make sure that workers DO NOT revolt against capitalism, because the safety net gives provides an escape from the worst desperation and keep the workers quiet. FDR always said that he saved capitalism.

A capitalist system without any form of safety net is the true stepping stone to socialism, workers taking things into their own hands and revolting. Thats what the ruling class is truly afraid of.
