I don't think you guys realize it, but we live in a socialist country already.
We have a 40 hour workweek with a weekend, given to us by the work of the labor unions. We all like that.
We have government paid for k-12 Schools for all, for free.
We have medicaid and medicare and social security and on and on.
The problem is that it's broken and expensive and done poorly. We give social welfare (money) to corporations that already make billions.
That's broken socialism.
We treat everyone medically in any emergency room in the country, but don't give them affordable pre-emtive healthcare or affordable insurance. That's broken socialism.
When you take a guy like Bernie Sanders...he's basically saying that we should fix it and make it work.
The republicans on this thread, will tell you socialism is the work of the devil, but they don't care that we give oil companies and big banks billions of dollars while they collect their (socialist) unemployment checks,
get medicaid and food stamps, while packing their kids lunch for that (socialist) elementary school down the road ( that was build by socialism). But Bernie Sanders is going to destroy the world? LOL
But who's better than Sanders.. not Clinton or Bush, that I agree with. I like Paul. Trump? He thinks the Chinese invented Climate change to make money. LOL

PS: Socialism already works in our country. It's been working in our country since the 30's.
Socialism has been tearing this country apart since the 30's.
Fixed that for you.
