Now this is funny! It is socialism. The only difference is, it would be voted on instead of by force!

Funny how democrats call republicans Nazi's when it was Hitler who fooled the people into socialism and the democrats are crying for socialism.

HILARIOUS!

As the article states, Democratic Socialism is state control of the economy, the opposite of Fascism which is Economic/Corporate control of the state. Left or right are only points on a circle, not two ends of a line. Socialism and Fascism are the joining of the economy/corporations and the state. The only difference is who wears the pants in this governmental marriage. We have hybrid version of these two seemingly opposite types of rule now. The difference being the word Democracy. We are not a Democracy, we are a Republic. There is a difference.

A Republic has rules that cannot be changed by a vote alone. Democracy is mob rule. We all vote to kill you, we do. In a Republic murder is illegal regardless of the vote.

We currently live in a Fascist Socilaist Republic. As to what side has the pants at a given time is what has made this country great. A balance of power.
