OP knows this. Must be a slow news day in Russia.

Like clockwork, when Trump says something stupid his bots like to bait the liberals. It's a distraction.

Team Red and Team Blue need to openly admit their love for Marx.

Admission is the first step on the long road to recovery.

If the following does not sound like Trump rule, nothing does.

Fascism (/ˈfæʃɪzəm/) is a form of radical right-wing, authoritarian ultranationalism characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition, and strong regimentation of society and of the economy which came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe.
That sounds like the babbling typically associated with a particularly advanced case of TDS.

Do you consider the fire department, police department, the military, medicare and social security, just to name a few, to be socialism? If so, you are a socialist for using them.

This country will never be a full blown socialist country, not even close. Most people also know that nothing is free. That is just another conservative media talking point that stirs up their base (you).

They should do so right after the Republicans drop all pretense and rebrand themselves as the Fascist Party.

Stumped? You don't have an answer, do you?

Personal attacks are usually the symptom of having no answer to rational questions.
