They are both extremist parties now. Their is no moderate in politics over here anymore. The Dems are Socialists in a Government that's suppose to be a Democratic Republic and want the Government to run everything and the Repubs are Christian fanatics who want to force their morals onto everyone. They are both Criminal enterprises as far as I am concerned.

the Progressive Caucus is the largest political group within the Democratic Party making up over 1/3 of all Democrats in the House


Even if this is true, which I highly doubt, that would mean that 2/3rds are NOT socialist, so your thread fails. Not to mention that many people want a combination of capitalism and what you call socialism- not just the extremes one way or the other.

Well i don't know much about that which you spoke of in the OP.

But i'm glad we can agree that the current system is BS and does not represent the people, it represents the bankers and corporations that basically buy our laws.

I can respect you knowing that you know this truth.

I will continue to read and listen.

There are 192 Democrats in the House

www.thecapitol.net...

71 of them are in the Progressive Caucus

en.wikipedia.org...

Factor in there was 6 in 1991 and now there are over 80 proves exactly what I said in the post, Oh BTW that's another thing I noticed about asshurt Democrats in denial or some Socialists, when they quote you they only include the parts of the sentence they want too and not the whole quote

"
It is a fact the Progressive Caucus is the largest political group within the Democratic Party making up over 1/3 of all Democrats in the House with more voted in each election. "

please notice the part you left out where I stated more every year as it proves a pattern most Dems do not know.

Oh and as for making things up I didn't say I am just going to assume you were not referring to me to have said exactly what people want when I did no such thing.

"Not to mention that many people want a combination of capitalism and what you call socialism- not just the extremes one way or the other."

Thanks you. It''s not a truth I wish was true, but it is. I didn't just make it up and I think the Repubs are just as bad. I was just curious why Democrats try to deny they are Socialists. That's what the whole post was about

ahhh, I'm glad you added "the repubs are probably just as bad"

You should have put that in your OP, it would save you from a lot of ridicule.

I left it out intentionally to expose the fact that some people only believe in their party and not America. The fact is there has been a Dem President and Repub Congress or vise versa for the last 30 years, so in fact every bill that has passed was passed by both parties. I knew some would attack me as being a Repub when I am not to expose the conditioned response they have assuming I was. I actually thought I would get a lot more "party" people who ignore the facts and just attack "the other party" than I did lol

This is why I didn't respond to the posts about duopoly or ones about there is no difference between parties, I know that but as you can see by the conditioned sheep most of them do not.

except Germany which just switched to Socialism and Sweden,
Nice try on the misdirection thou


What? We just switched to Socialism? When did this happen or did i miss something?

Eastern Germany was "socialist" (communist actually)...but the wall came down 1989, obviously it didn't work for them in the East since their society/economy collapsed from it.

Saying that Germany is "socialist" is as dumb as saying that America is socialist every time a DEM is in power.
Or does unemployment insurance etc..etc.. make a country "socialist"? I mean in the "bad sense socialist" as it is obviously always used by Americans...like "a dem is president...OMGZ! we are going towards socialism!".

The Democrats are Socialists? Great, when they start acting like it and get the spine needed to get their way, I'll be sure to vote for them.

If you don't have the faith that Socialism could work in America, then you're no true patriot because you don't believe this is the greatest country in the world!

Actually I am a true Patriot, unlike Socialists I will defend the Constitution with my life if I have to where as they want to destroy it.

As I said in a previous post, all you silly little Socialists say the same things like " this time it will work" when it is a fact it has never worked in the history of mankind after over 70+ attempts lol

Not everyone in the progressive caucus is a socialist, otherwise...they would be members of SPUSA (Socialist Party USA).

It's true, the DSA is not it's own seperate party. During a socialist convention during the 1970's the DSA seperated themselves from the SPUSA because they felt dominated by the two parties and understood that a third party was hopeless in America, thus they 'joined' the democratic party by pushing more candidates that are in-line with their ideals.

The only true socialist party in America even have their own presidential candidate. You never hear about him, or any of the other 290+ candidates running for president though.

DSA is not it's own political party because they would then have to raise funds and report to the Federal Election Commission. SPUSA is a political party and have to raise funds and report to the FEC.

The Democratic party may have some members that are socialists (myself included) but that doesn't mean the entire party is socialist, I identify more with socialists than democrats. Just as a handful of constitutionalists in the Republican party don't make the entire party the Constitution Party, particularly because there's already a Constitution Party.

When we only have two parties to choose from you're going to get a little bit of everything under the banners.
