    they are no more socialist than we are!! We had highest corporate tax in world and relied more on top 1% for revenue than they did. Europe has 65% of our GDP. Even krugman says they have Eurosclerosis! Do you understand?

    Until she calls for the businesses of the United States to be owned by either the state or worker collectives, I wouldn't call her a socialist. Not saying her policies are right or wrong, but I don't think it's appropriate to call her a socialist yet, even if she might (inaccurately?) describe herself as one.

    More like you prefer to REWRITE HISTORY to suit your preferred narrative.


    Please tell us all which of the former USSR (60-100 million dead), Red China (60-80 million dead), Cambodia (7 million dead), post-war Vietnam (2 million in the first two years of "peacetime', more than died on BOTH SIDES in the entire 13 years of direct US military involvement there) , Laos, Cuba DID NO HAVE TOTAL GOVERNMENT CONTROL of the MEANS OD PRODUCTION and DISTRIBUTION = "SOCIALISM" ?

    Again you do understand proving a negative fallacy right? For instance you have demonstrated no following of god as a person of faith would do just the hypocrisy.

    green New Deal is not communist? She does not want to own, just assume total control. Do you understand? Modern communists have learned they are too stupid to manage a business. Do you understand now?
