So, you are saying he is the embodiment of the first definition.
a form of socialism with a democratic government; the ownership and control of the means of production, capital, land, property, etc., by the community as a whole -- combined with a democratic government
Democratic socialism is a political ideology advocating political democracy alongside social ownership of the means of production, with democratic management of enterprises within a socialist economic system.

Well see, words can have 2 different meanings, like another word that is kind of explosive around Republicans : Race, it means 2 things and they do not compliment each other. There is a difference between what you want to see and what it actually is. We are already living in a "Social Democracy" He only wants to expand on that, not implement anything else
Hey, the Socialist President of Venezuela where people are rioting because they have no food just endorsed Bernie Sanders...Americans want Socialism??? Those people are freaking nuts...

The last few days has been intense here. Not like the usual fun. people have been private messaging me to not post anymore. Apparently my view on socialism is taboo.
I disagree with it.
Look, people have different views, and we can all disagree, but good gravy, to silence me? I'm just a fat old man on the internet doing something to pass the time while I transition into retirement.
And I get hate mail? hahahahahahahahaha
I'm a nobody.
I'm nothing. Just a fart in a tornado.
If you guys want socialism, then suppress your neighborhood and go for it!
Tax your dog 500%!
Beat your neighbor, but do it for the state so you can get extra cheese next time you're in line.
But kiss my fat hairy ass if you want me to accept it.
Rant over, but I hope I was able to convey my feelings without harming anyone's safe space.
