Democrats are very different than Socialists. Even AOC and Bernie are not true Socialists.

They're getting pretty close to being Democrat-Socialists. Free Medicare for all! Guaranteed income! Guaranteed jobs! Subsidized housing! Free college! Universal pre-school! Wow, and all for free. I don't know how that doesn't qualify for Socialism.

The Democratic party is moving towards socialism. While the next election may be up in the air the Democrats have the distinct advantage moving forward. The momentum is moving towards socialism. I really believe we will be living in a socialist society within the next couple of decades. Its not if it will happen it is just a matter of when it will happen!!!

Lol. No.

Should the Republicans call themselves the Nationalists? The Fascists?

Is this poll serious or a joke?

Also, and nobody will answer this question--Is the redistribution of wealth from taxpayers to farmers, basically as bribes, socialism?

Fascism is a type of socialism, so it would make no sense for the Republicans to refer to themselves in this way.

Is minority rule fascism?

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.

Time for the democrats to start a third party named, 'the democrat party'. Their ship has been hijacked and dems have been set adrift by the mutinous pirates.
