Just taking a line from the book of my "favorite" political hit-pieces, and one I hear/see being used all the time.

Everyone is whining about socialism - as if the U.S. doesnt have a myriad of different socialist programs.

Here you go

So I'll just leave it at this. Don't like socialism?

Then you can get the **** out!

A deeply penetrating analysis which challenges the long standing conclusions of economists and lovers of freedom and liberty for centuries.

Bravo, slam dunk.

Socialism, but not necessarily communism, would help in many situations in various countries. It would be a lot better if we had governments that actually concerned the people, not occupy themselves with lining their own pockets and advantaging their businessmen mates.

Or since I actually served my time to protect freedom and the democratic republican government of this nation, you can gtfo to any of a number of your idiotic socialist utopias at your whim!!!

We don't want that retarded crap, take it back where you found it and live there with it!

You already have this retarded crap though.

You are too late, man.

Sorry.

And uh... democratic republican of a government? What does that mean?

Are you trying to refer to a Consititutional Republic?

It may also behoove you to find out what a polyarchy is

And honestly, I don't care if you fought overseas for "my freedom."

I can still be arrested for smoking a plant.

I can be arrested, without reason, without trial, or access to a jury, and also be tortured - legally.

Thanks, man!

That's what I was going for.

Deeply penetrating analysis don't seem to matter to Americans unless it's in the form of Jason Bourne or the Cards/Cubs game.

Just thought I'd simply for some, we've had socialist programs for a long while.

Just weird how "socialism," is just now becoming a pressing issue for some.

It's been a pressing issue for many since the 1930s.

I prefer to fight against socialism instead of GTFO as you so eloquently offered us as our only option. Just because we have unjust socialist policies now doesn't mean we can't fix those and fight against future encroachment by liberal elected officials.

Socialism is an enemy of freedom and a failed philosophy that caters to the lowest common denominator. It fails to reward exceptionalism and rewards irresponsible life choices.

Instead of GTFO I will opt-out of the socialist BS.

Why do governments need to get involved? Why can't there be a government that actually leaves people alone who want to be left alone.

In this socialist utopia, will there still be 535 bottom feeders currently referred to as "congress"?

I think you've put the cart before the horse because no system will work until you address lobbynomics.

Just stop it, paying you and I the exact same, even though you produce at full tilt all day while I do nothing and sleep half my shift is the best way forward... Obviously.

I mean paying you more because you do more.... What kind of evil greedy wretch ate you anyways...

I can't believe you, thinking you working your ass off deserve more than me for sleeping all say and doing nothing productive... Where do you get off....

Talk about entightlement.... I bet you also think I don't deserve a house car and free food too!!!

I was born, I deserve everything you have, no matter how lazy I am.... I meant how hard you work!!!

Every time someone tried, they got economically attacked from all sides and/or was still stuck with a crooked bank regime feeding of the workers.

It never has been tried, but capitalism sure as! And it's been overdue for quite sometime unless you aren't seeing how eternal profits are killing the earth.

Suuuure got a working system now do we!

Capitalism has always led to higher living standards for the citizens of said country, as well as more freedom

Socialism has always led to lower living standards less freedom more tyrany and more abuse at the hands of the state, up to and including in most cases, mass murder in a wide spread, Nazism like scale

Hhhmmmmm..... Yes capitalism is not perfect, but compared to every socialist state in history....... Heaven in comparison, no seriously, heaven in comparison, we can compare the two if you want.

I bet one Stalin or mao killed more of their own people in 10 years than the west in every war fought since world war 2 combined..... Wanna bet on that?

I got $10 bucks says I'm right


Edited.... My autocorrect.... It will be the death of me I swear!!!

The simple answer is because they've all been taught that it is "sharing." I was raised that sharing is when I take my sandwich and give some to the other kid, not when the teacher comes and takes away half my sandwich to give to the other kid.

Or, in other words, socialism is when someone else gives you the shirt off my back.
