Will someone please ask the next Trumper what part of socialism they want to toss?
Is it SS, Medicare, the ACA, is it unemployment insurance? What? In socialist countries they have FREE healthcare, free higher education, some have free medical education, paid vacations for 4 weeks, paid family leave...we have none of that. So what the fuck are they talking about.
Public schools for whites? Magic funding.
Universal healthcare for whites? Magic funding.
...and people wonder why this rebranding never works.
...so, if we were to put all the same proposals under a new label, like "blueberry cheesecake," it wouldn't be so knee-jerk unacceptable. I'm proud to support an agenda of Democratic Blueberrry Cheesecake!
And no Western European country is socialist.
Is it any surprise that republicans are able to scare people with the socialist label when so many progressives dont know what it means?
No success country has the means of production owned by the state. Thats socialism. What you are talking about is how far a nation should go to mitigating the excesses of capitalism. Every program you mentioned does that. Like you, I want much more mitigation.
But only capitalism has proven the ability to generate wealth. Also, unchecked, the ability to insure the capitalists have all the capital.
believe it too.
