    Milwaukee had THREE socialist mayors in the first half of the twentieth century.

    Emil Seidel (1910-1912)

    Daniel Hoan (1916-1940)

    Frank P. Zeidler (1948-1960)

    So in other words, you get the epic fail pin of the day:

    Nice, you found some successful socialist. Well congrates. So, what kind of socialist are they. The soft socialist, that believe in welfare. Or, the hardcore socialist that believes in nationalization of all privately owned properties, and the abolishment of money?

    Socialism on the national scale might be different than socialism of a mayor.

    You get the Apples and Oranges pin for the day.

    Well the argument was that socialism on any scale doesn't work in this country.

    So I gave a argument about socialism at least on a certain scale works in this country.

    By the way, by definition you just want to put as many Liberals under the word "socialist" as possible huh?

    You pay taxes right? You may not like it but you see the need for them correct?

    Socialist.

    Seemed to work fairly well for the banking elite a few weeks back.

    Those insiders now have 1.4 trillion reasons for thinking you're wrong.

    Socialists working in a state which has a long history of being split between rednecks and Minnesota type liberals. Back then they most likely would have been in favor of help, especially given farm conditions, but none too keen on equal rights.

    Again, the claim was that Socialism has never worked in the United States.

    I disproved a claim and proved the opposite.

    In a organized debate, I would win. Simple concept.

    Not saying differently, just making an observation about a state I'm fairly familiar with. Summer home and all. Seriously Scitzoid state. Far left/Far right, simultaneously. :cuckoo:
