    Have you ever lived in a socialist country?

    This question is mainly aimed at people on here who claim to be socialists.

    Have you ever lived in a socialist country? Do you have any personal experience with socialism?

    pardon me if i highjack your thread for a moment.

    you do know that democracy is socialism don't you, its just a clever rouse to confuse the people.

    democracy allows people too create their own rights ,thus creating every handout they the people wish give themselves.

    this is why the American founders say that in democracies , they fail.......when people find out they can vote for anything from the public trough.

    republican forms of governments ......rights are endowed by the creator...and government is limited.

    I've spent some time in a socialist country (Russia)... and as far as governmental criticism... it was pretty terrible. and you can tell that people lived in fear and was afraid to say anything bad about Putin.

    So I'm going to put you in the "no" category, because you've clearly never experienced actual socialism.

    the USA has immigration laws, which are not being followed by both parties.

    in the constitution of the founders, your money is your, not other peoples...a direct tax on the people is unconstitutional.

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    the truth is, yes i have, ..why?

    because the union is not being run according too the constitution, and government has moved us away from republican government of the constitution , and moved us closer to democracy which is a collective type government, which redistributes wealth, and tells people its impossible to make it without government help " you didn't built that"--obama 2012

    republican government ,there is no direct taxes on the people, and people's property rights are totally secure, in the USA property rights are NOT SECURE.
