    Socialism didn't really kill 120 million. I tend to take a more circumspect view of history rather than fall back on sloganeering.
    Now listen Donald, stay focused, hold it together. Put down the bucket of chicken. Stop tweeting. Go into the next bedroom. Get under the bed. Calm down. Now the next part is very important...

    has she ever said a positive word about capitalism?? Isn't thinking fun??

    To me, what socialism means is to guarantee a basic level of dignity. It's asserting the value of saying that the America we want and the America that we are proud of is one in which all children can access a dignified education. It's one in which no person is too poor to have the medicines they need to live.

    It's Republican scare tactics. She's not.

    She doesn’t fit the definition of a socialist and it’s not up to me to prove a negative it’s up to you to prove she is fully a socialist which you haven’t.

    Zero on its own because an economic system is just a construct for running things. Same with capitalism. It's only when we attach these monikers to the crimes of a regime that the body count starts to climb - and i could as easily do it for capitalism, but that would be equally fallacious.

    The mantra you're referring to is that communist governments and dictatorships - yes, sometimes with the help of a mismanaged socialist economy - ended up killing a lot of their own people or others in wars. I get that. They also often nominally did it 'for socialism' but that was just their replacement for the more traditional 'in god's name'.

    But one cannot argue the kind of socialist policies practiced in modern economies like Norway or New Zealand are on a murderous rampage. History is far more complex than a slogan on a T-shirt.

    The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of 'liberalism' they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.

    Again you lie she doesn’t hate capsilism only when it is regulated by the rich. Why is it you lie so much? Lying is against god so the only thing you have proven is you are against god.
