Democratic Socialists are all a quiver what with one of their own, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, actually winning a primary-

She even defined democratic socialism so everyone can love it and decide for themselves what it actually is-

Who could be against socialism, as defined by Ocasio-Cortez as "democratic participation in our economic dignity" and "the basic elements that are required for an economic and socially dignified life in the United States"?

The Democratic Socialist Party was flooded with 1500 new members!



You raise a good point there boss. I read part of the 'Reason' article but didn't read it all because it became repetative and they made their point in the first two paragraphs.

"Communist, red scare paranoia propaganda" of course! The supposed 'idea whose time has come'.

The question is boss, if Trump comes to be seen as a lost cause for his followers, what way will they turn for salvation? (not in the Xtian sense)

I think they voiced their political priorities when they turned to Trump. He was their acceptable alternative to the Dems' Bernie.

So right now I see it as all depending on Trump's hold on his support. Socialism is a very real threat in my opinion if those people turn away from Trump.

The amount of concern the establishment shows will be easily determined by the amount of 'red scare' propaganda they throw at the political scene in the lead-up to the next election.

Safety for the establishment won't just come from the right, but will also come from the Dems. Together they will form a very substantial effort to maintain the establishement status quo.

But the wild card is American discontent. That's something the libertarian 'Reason' site could capitalize on if they have their wits about them, as opposed to the kneejerk 'red scare' idea.

Who knows, maybe they did in the rest of the article I didn't find worth reading. They set the tone in the first part which probably discouraged most people.

You didn't get to the part where it was proved that democratic socialism is the wave of America's future?

I'm telling you, it was proved when the DSP of A was absolutely flooded with 1500 new members Grin Grin Grin

You know why the Dems can't impeach Trump Ruby. Trump has committed dozens of crimes already in the saens of what used to be considered an impeachable crime by a president. Let's not pretend about that not being so Ruby. Anyway, who cares? And it doesn't solve anything to argue about it anyway.


In other words, you don't know of any crimes Trump has committed.  Bullshitting as usual.

Bill Maher wants the economy to crash so Trump doesn't get re-elected.  I guess he doesn't care about the poor people it would hurt.  It just goes to show that those on the left don't really care about the poor.

Destroying "capitalism" and America is necessary to the establishment of a "socialist system", so of course they want the economy to crash.

They think it will be an opportunity not seen since the Great Depression.

They had the Great Recession.  And wasn't it caused by government getting banks to take on risky loans so poor people could buy houses?

Among other things, yes, and the banks are doing it again. So are car dealers. Consumer debt looks as bad as the various government debts.

If they said that they were just guessing or engaged in wishful thinking. It's only a possibility that socially responsible government will be demanded by enough of the people to change things for the better.

I've already explained to you how that could come about.

Frankly, I don't think the time has come yet. But I think a lot can change in two years.

Especially in the chance that the deep state will be able to bring down Trump. Through the courts or in one big squishy thud?

It's pretty much proven that there aren't enough deluded children and young adults to make their demands that government mother them into government policy.

They have always been useful idiots for Communists.

If you want some form of communism, talk about it, don't keep trying to disguise it with "socially responsible definitions".

Are you ashamed of what you plan?
