    Re: U.S. Capitalism or Socialism?

    I already did.
    I was referring to the OP, but ok. So you define socialism as state ownership. That doesn't really say much.

    I suggest you and other liberals
    "I disagree with him so he must be a dang lib'rul!"

    People are not interested in diversions created to subvert a topic
    On the contrary, it is fundamental to the topic; we cannot determine if the US is socialist if we do not even have a definition for the word.

    Anything to **** up a thread, right? You people are freaking lazy.

    Capitalism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Socialism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    "Socialism refers to a broad set of economic theories of social organization"

    It seems that you're the lazy one.

    I'm just curious to see what people think and see what some of our most partisan members think as well.
    I think that the U.S. is a mixture of quasi mercantilism/socialism.

    Depending on who is in control it shifts from one direction to the other but it mostly holds this position.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I’d go with the free market.

    Socialism - Any agreement among people that makes it so that raw production earns you merit in fields that we normally reserve for smart people.


    Or you can go by this woman's definition :p It's pretty funny.

    Populism seems much more relevant than socialism, or more so in the minds of democrat politicians and their supporters.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.
