10. Why post this vid.Hearing an idiot demean a term just to attack Democrats

 

This nation is a democratic socialist republic already. Republic means a representative government, democratic in that we elect our reps, socialist in that the people decide to promote the common welfare by ensuring thatthose things we all agree are necessary for all of us are provided by this democratic republic of ours like roads, police, fire departments, libraries, healthcare, education, SS, Medicare. etc. Trump's definition of socialism is not even close to reality. His approach is to privatize and profiteer from all our shared needs. The applause is from repub corporatists and should make any moral person vomit. I hope Bernie and others use the term Democratic so0cialists and make those screaming negatives about it tell which social programs they are against...which they want to get rid of 'cause these repubs will choke on it. Do they want to get rid of the police, the VA, SS, Medicare, ...just go down the list then doubters will see what socialism means. We pay 20% more for HC ins now and only 3% for Medicare, savings galore. Tax on Wall street trades- pays for education, increase the cap on FICA deductions, SS & Medicare paid for; Repeal the Reagan tax cuts and watch income inequality vanish. screw these smaLL MINDED GREEDY REPUBLICANS.
