    It's a poor system of government based on a poorly written constitution.

    Evidenced that no other democratic country uses the US system to base its system of government on.

    Our Founding Fathers did an most excellent job at the Convention with our federal Constitution and supreme law of the land. We could not do a better job today, even with Quantum Supremacy. A new plan for the new world.

    This guy again. He actually believes that socialism doesn't imply or employ a specific economic system. So take what he says with a grain of salt.

    Or, in this case, a 500lb truck load of salt.

    Our form of socialism is defined by our federal Constitution and supreme social law of the land.

    We live in a constitutional representative republic, not a socialist, or "leftist" utopia.

    EDIT: This type of government is essentially the polar opposite of a socialistic system. For example, we don't have mass genocides here, like in every other form of socialist government.

    Wait, we do have mass genocides here. It's called abortion. But according to the liberal left abortion is not genocide, so if we play by their rules the 65,000,000 unborn children who have been aborted do not qualify as victims of genocide.

    Hey, I'm just playing by their rules here...

    Government is socialism. Our welfare clause is General and must cover any contingency.

    The founders certainly didn't and came up with a half assed constitution.

    I think 2 or 3 ordinary guys could write a better constitution on a Sunday afternoon, after a couple of beers.
