#1 The brand of faux socialist self-aggrandizement and fascism supported by leftists is even worse. It may not aim to, but it won't bat an eyelid before allowing things worse than Stalin or Hitler. But they will do it with verbiage that makes them appear helpless, innocent and well-intentioned. Simply let the lawless and the corrupt take over slowly until everything's fucked. And then resign like May and say "I tried my best. I guess it was just America's time to go... sniff, sniff"

The bastards.

#2 The Communists called their nation the "The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics."

A Sov'et is a council, which in their case was a pretense at "democracy."

#3 Let's pause for a moment and listen to (avowed communist sympathizer) Pete Seeger's Sixteen Tons... The irony, at least to me, is that in a Socialism the whole economy is a "company store" owned and managed by the Government. They decide what is for sale, they decide how much it costs and they decide if a bank will loan you money to buy it -- freedom and democracy in a Democratic Socialism is a mirage...

#4 ^^ The only way to be free in Socialism is to be a criminal: "Anything that is not expressly permitted is forbidden."

#8 Communist = liberal = progressive
They change the name once the rubes figure out its the same blood soaked poverty machine.

#9 One difference is that the DSA types use taxes. They don't dare try to "own" everything, namely, private property & capital, so they use the tax man.
