Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, July 09, 2018

The question now is whether this flurry of interest in socialism will be sustained and whether Democrats, who have long been harried by red fright and responsible for enabling it, will make space for socialism. While the Republicans continue to decry socialism as a threat to the fabric of our society, the Democrats have a chance to capitalize on the momentum of young, up-and-coming leaders such as Ocasio-Cortez and welcome socialists into the fold for the first time.

How long would this country last on socialism?

It's doing pretty okay with Military Industrial Complex based socialism.

Snippy likes it that US workers would be better off in just about any other developed nation.

Proxy voters for wealthy Republicans are like that.

SS, Medicare, Medicaid, police, fire, military, parks and schools are all socialism (collectivism paid for by government).

Dems are either stupid or liars.

Maybe that should be, "Dems are stupid liars"...

You're right Corky. That's why we need to quit letting illegal immigrants in since they would be better off where they came from.

Since socialism is better than capitalism and Mexico just elected a socialist, I'm sure it's just a matter of time before Mexico builds a northern border wall to prevent Americans from illegally crossing into Mexico.

Dems should run from socialism. Who would want to be associated with an ideology that created Venezuela, or Cuba, or any of the other socialist societies?

"Who would want to be associated with an ideology that created Venezuela, or Cuba"

Catholicism?
European Expansionism?
Conquistadoreanism?

Oh, you mean when the capitalist ideology refused to trade with Cuba, to punish the ideology of Cuba, because capitalism kills other ideologies wherever possible.

In other words...socialism without capitalist backing is already dead.

Like I said. The smart people will run, Dems and everyone else.

Is that what you're calling a government trade embargo enforced at gunpoint, a "lack of capitalist backing?'

What a joke.

Capitalism can't exist in the first place without state to shield debtors from creditors through the legal fiction of incorporation.
