Any amount of government committing armed robbery to take money from one citizen and give it to another is "too much"
You think the only alternative to socialism is anarchy?

Edit: No, sorry, you meant things like corporate welfare and the seizure of property without trial or evidence, stuff like that, right? And Social Security too.

Russia and China know that if they attack the US, we would retaliate with equal force.  They also know that invasion would be impossible because the US is the only country in the world where the number of guns exceeds the number of citizens!   Any invading army would be decimated.

You think citizen militias or individuals with guns will be an impediment to a modern invading army? Do you envision a long fought guerilla war by survivalists against the People's Army Army?

What will our army be doing?

But the question was "conquer" not simply invade...

The real Communists have always believed that the U.S. will collapse into revolutionary warfare and they can just come in and re-organize along good communist lines.

That seems more likely to me than an invasion.

In fact, domestic communists have been trying to get a revolution started since the '60s. Maybe they'll succeed.

Conquest is impossible without putting boots on the ground.  They might crush our infrastucture with bombs, but at some point they will need to occupy.  This is when they will suffer heavy losses and retreat/disband.

They're making progress toward that end. 

"Democratic Socialism" is a code for:  Soften up the masses.  Transfer rights and power from the people to the government -  Very  s l o w l y - over a long period of time,  so they don't notice.   Smiley 

Wait for the right opportunity for communist takeover.

They won't know what hit 'em!!    Grin    Grin    Grin

Exactly. Take over the government and no military conquest is needed.

A funny thing happened at the California’s Democratic Convention last weekend.

Democratic Presidential Candidate John Hickenlooper made a fatal mistake that will effectively take him out of the race for Democratic Party nominee.

He told a crowd of 4500 socialists:

“If we want to beat Donald Trump and achieve big progressive goals, socialism is NOT the answer!”

The room erupted in BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

The clamor lasted nearly 30 seconds.   To Hickenlooper though, it probably seemed like 30 minutes.

He tried desperately to silence the booing....

"HOLD ON!! HOLD ON!! . . . I want to give Americans a reason to look forward tomorrow!  As president, I will make health care a RIGHT, not a privilege with a real public option!”

But the damage was done.   Put a fork in it, John.    You're done.

You see, Socialism IS the answer for Democrats.  Comrade Bernie's popularity is testament to that fact.

Time to pack it in, Hick.   See ya!    Buh-bye.  Don't let the door hit yur ass on the way out.

How many people will abandon the Democratic Party as it finally admits it's not about democracy but really about control of everything by the Party?

Let's hope libertarians offer a sane alternative to those democrats with actual liberal minds...

Hint: The sane alternative isn't anarchy.

It does seem that no one who could win the nomination could win the election.  But this country keeps careening to the left, eventually they will win

You are mistaken about our country "careening to the left".

It's the Democratic Party, which has been far left for a generation, that is finally admitting what they actually want to impose on us.

Is the Democratic Party gaining membership?

Who would join after listening to the current clown parade of candidates?

Edit: Yes, lots of young people are enamored of the promises of utopia. That's common throughout history...
