There is a reason it only rears its ugly head when times get tough, it is a symptom of a larger problem - not a solution. Never has been, never will be.

Such drama. There is no socialist party here in the USA. The "left" in the US, which isn't leftist by any definition are center-right corporatists just like the extreme corporatist right wing. But fear mongering for the win right?


Of course, we don't have any party that would dare to call themselves socialists, but isn't it odd how all the politicians who openly call themselves socialists run as Democrats?

Times aren't even tough. Things have never been better for me as a middle class person.

Ridiculous and ignorant. We live in a society, jam packed with 350 million people. Unless you want to go live in a hut in the middle of Alaska there's no such thing as in control of your own life.

Well all right then, I'll just sit here and wait for someone else in society to pay for all my bills, earn all the money, take care of my health care, see to it that my clothing is washed, wipe my butt, etc.

Because, you know, you just told me it's impossible to be responsible for and take care of myself because there are 350 million other people around to do it for me.

we have no control of our own lives? what a ridiculous statement. I suppose we might as well let the government take over everything, leaving no stone unturned. I mean, we have no control anyways, might as well let our friends in government to decide how we live entirely.

It's that leftist mentality. Defeatist victim mentality.

You didn't build that, those jobs aren't coming back...It's sad that so many Americans have been conditioned to that thought process.

It's how they keep them in the gutter begging for the fruits of other people's hard work.

Of course it's a scam.

There's nothing democratic about socialism.

Trading one boss for a new boss that's suppose to be better.

No,
It's nepotistic totalitarian socialism. They just added fluffer words to make it sound nicer. When the chairs of the DSA openly call for the govt. takeover of all business and production. Any capitalism is long gone by that point.

What you're describing sounds more like the Nordic version.

I believe for that you would have to go into the actual socialist parties

The DSA is just a way to capitalise on the "radical democrats" votes

I agree with the notion that Democratic Socialism is a scam. Does that make Capitalism any better or different? nope.

Socialism = corruption.

The elite run the corporations they take over for there own ends.

They put other elite (party member) in charge of the corporations and skim all the profits.

They also put in party supporter in as workers and get rid of anyone else.
if you are a long time member of the party you become a boss.
If you want to work you join the party as a supporter. and if you believe the party does not know how you vote vote the wrong way and you find you are out of work.

Worked in china. russia. NK and cuba.
