says the chick who doesn't know shit about socialism except what she heard on FOX.


And you actually learn stuff from CNN? Wow, I'm so impressed - that you know crap about me. What's really funny is that I don't even have a Fox channel on my TV LOL!! |My understanding though is of all the MSM Fox is the most balanced. But I cannot personally vouch for that. I have also heard that CNN is mostly B.S. but I can't vouch for that either until I see clips of said B.S. on the internet.

So I guess you would prefer to be told what to do, when to do it and how to do it. You also prefer to mimic others thoughts and beliefs because you aren't allowed your own. That's what socialism is.

I prefer to make my own decisions because I generally know what's best for me and my family, not government or any idiot with a little bit of power that has gone to his/her head thank you very much!

We're way less socialist than y'all. Only about half of our population is covered by government-run health care.

Neither one of our countries are "socialist" and you know it. Quit baiting the brainless right wingers.

I know, but you're not one of the american right. You have a working brain.
And as such, I know that "socialist" is just a right-wing scare word for "bad."

The middlin' famous picture of the old woman brandishing a sign that said "Keep your government hands off my Medicare" is a pretty good example of the depth and breadth of the right-wing understanding of "socialism."

No, you bone head, it was Communism that killed people. You right wing dingbats don't know the difference cuz you're willfully ignorant.
You are getting dangerously close to the "Hitler was a socialist" territory.

The objectives of socialism and communism are symbiotic.

Why? It's fun.
I hope you understand that the American right regularly presents Canada as an example of the horrors of socialism.


Actually you know that the Left (i.e. Sanders & Biden) keep mentioning that Norway is a socialist country and they're wrong about that too. Canada & Norway both have some "socialist" policies i.e health care as an example but we are both capitalist societies. I rarely hear the "Right" mention Canada which is fine by me.

For those who don't know - they're pretty much the same! Clear?
No, they are not. Communism (there has never been a true communist state) is more like fascism/totalitarianism. Socialism is more about equality, justice and shared economy. Capitalism is about exploitation of workers, resources and the accumulation of wealth by the ruling elite. But I know that right wingnuts don't understand much cuz of they're willful ignorance. They prefer to be told what to think and believe. Have a nice day.
