Socialism for me and capitalism for you is a pretty good model.

I'm glad to see you doing your part to keep it that way.

Keep up the good work

communism works very good on a small scale, and very badly on a large scale.

Most people are willing to sacrifice a little for their friend or neighbor in need. You're also willing to work hard on a group project with friends who are also all willing to work hard.

But, on a large scale, screw self-sacrifice for strangers. The Free-Rider problem grows exponentially, and eventually nobody wants to do nothing

democratic socialism,on the other hadn, is a different beast altogether, and is very useful in certain areas.

Roads are the result of democratic socialism, as is air-traffic control, as is the police department. The FDA, NHTSA. EPA are all democratic socialism. Social Security, Medicare, and Unemployment Insurance are all democratic socialism. ICE and CBP are both democratic socialist institutions.

Basically, democratic socialism pertains to performing certain services that should not be done for profit.

Free market capitalism for the poor. Corporate socialism for the elites.

Socialism and libertarian are the same thing. It's part of a spectrum.

Basically, if you don't like something, you label it "socialism." If you do like something, you label it necessary for society.

The military is socialism. So is a local police force, roads.

"Socialism" is the right's version of "racism." Lets just label everything we don't like this thing because it scares people and makes it look like we are standing for our principles.
