Default In case anyone is curious

"We live in a time of growing inequality between the rich and poor, when the environment is being destroyed to the point of threatening our very existence, because of a system that prioritises profit. Here are 10 reasons why socialism is the way forward to solve society’s problems."

It is funny to me that only the Left is for Socialism/Communism.

Republicans believe in taking care of themselves and their families, like they have for generations. But Democrats feel the need to have the Government help them at every turn.

But I am starting to see the need for Socialism now. The Democrats have done a great job of building a society that NEEDS the government.

While the right is having less and less children, the left is having more.

Democrat politicians have encouraged their constituents to rely on the government more and more, paying them to give birth to more Democrats
that need government assistance.

It's a sick game that the left is winning.

You're right. Today the fascists call themselves progressives.

The government can only have great good health and flourish if it's revenue stream continues to grow. That requires more people and higher taxes.

I don't see the problem, a little self promotion, a little problem creation and magical cure, could it be Santa Claus by any other name?

I feel so safe, cradled in the loving arms of the government.

Indeed, socialists have long masked their toxic ideology in high sounding names such as National Socialist Workers Party. The radical Leftists running the Democrat party today are following Marx's dictum that capitalist governments must be transitioned to socialism first.

It's the same website Salty, Socialism and Fascism go hand in hand.

Socialist/Fascist Governments both stifle free speech, and control the majority of the media. And they do everything they can to denigrate the opposition through violence and intimidation.

Socialism leads to Fascism virtually every time.

Socialist become fascist once they get the power

Socialism seldom lasts for long. It always fails. ALWAYS!

Fascism, once in engaged, usually last for decades, even centuries.

When asked about his change of perspective from endorsing Marxist Socialism to supporting Capitalism, Thomas Sewell responded,,, simply and succinctly...."FACTS."

This appears to be stated ironically; yet it is certainly true that the Democrats have done this.

(1) Fascism is actually a part of the far left--not the far right, as some imagine. (Hitler and Stalin were really very much alike; the principal difference was that Hitler preferred national socialism--hence, the shortened term, "nazi"--whereas Stalin preferred international socialism (a.k.a. communism).

(2) The OP seems to imagine that those of us on the right (actually, the center-right, in my case) would embrace a fascist website. (And that, of course, is utterly absurd.)
