Democratic Socialism and Socialism - is there really a difference?

Steven Crowder explains this 'lipstick-on-a-pig' nonsense:



It's more of the flagrant double standard of the left where they claim they protect minorities from the majority then declare direct support for the tyranny of the majority

Bernie Sanders is the only major 2020 Presidential Candidate to self-identify as a "democratic socialist",  but most of the Democrat candidates enthusiastically embrace socialist policies.

It shouldn't be surprising that democratic socialism appeals to ignorant younger voters.   Studies have shown that most of them don't even understand what socialism IS. 

Bernie Sanders defines democratic socialism as "the understanding that all of our people live in security and dignity" and "a government and an economy and a society which works for all." 

It sure sounds nice.  But incredibly mendacious.

Here's a more accurate definition of democratic socialism:

Government controls the means of production, distribution, and exchange.  It discourages entrepreneurship, innovation, and growth.   Eventually, everyone becomes equally poor, except for the ruling-class elites. 

"Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery." - Winston Churchill
