|I decided to start a new thread on this, simply because it could get long and very interesting.|
Someone challenged me that I did not know the difference between a “democratic socialist” and a socialist. I responded, “very little.”
So, then, I decided to do a little research, and I discovered that the only difference is time frame. A socialist wants it done now, while a democratic socialist wants to take it in steps. I visited Their website, and I will debunk their BS one item at a time, unless of course, if someone wants to argue their bogus points en masse.
"You also understand that pure socialism means the state controls the means of production - something no Democrat is proposing, right?"
From the DSA website.
“In the short term we can’t eliminate private corporations, but we can bring them under greater democratic control.”
Oh, then what pray tell is your “long term” objective.
So many contradictions on this site it is embarrassing.
And, before I get told to Sieg Heil again, let me explain something to the uneducated.
My father landed on Normandy the day after D-Day and fought to the end.
My Uncle was in the 101st Airborne, landed in Europe the day before D-Day.
Another Uncle was in Armored, fought all the way through.
Another Uncle was an MP, and guarded “the bomb.”
Because I have a German surname does not give you the right to assume anything. Sounds like racism to me.
I am prepared to DEBATE without SPIN.
