My iphone is weird when i use ats, again to have a tantrum that would mean i was wrong, which i am not, you bring zero to the table, then insult me lol.
At least like i told you earlier you get stars for trying real hard.edit on 14-5-2016 by dukeofjive696969 because: (no reason given)
In every completely Socialist system in history, the ruling class is exempt from it's own policies. Why do you think they lived in mansions and palaces while the majority lived off bread lines? When you think about it, it boils down to nothing more then crony capitalism with a select few controlling a monopoly on the means of production while enforcing communism on the populace. There is a reason why Socialism is right below Fascism in the Oppressive Authority index.

Rant over, but I hope I was able to convey my feelings without harming anyone's safe space.
Funny that you needed to rant about the fact that people disagree with you

The definition of socialism is government controlling the means of production.
Yes I would say that is correct. The people in power usually have more of everything. Look who are some of the biggest proponents of socialism in the US today.... Nancy Pelosi, George Soros, Warren Buffett, Al Gore(because Agenda 21 is socialistic and totalitarian with pretty sounding words) etc ad nauseum.... they all have money galore they made off capitalism.

Okay, but why is this a topic?
No one running for president wants socialism.
No one on ATS wants socialism that I know of.....
Some people want more implementation of social programs and government funding.. But we have that.
You drive on roads, you go to parks I bet, you might even use electricity or the cities water.
What exactly are you arguing? Who exactly are you arguing against? Socialists hardly exist on this site.
