    Socialist? Communist? I often notice some of you extreme righties throw the invective, “communist” or “socialist” around. It looks like these invectives mean to you anyone to your left. If they mean something else, would one of you please explain to us what you mean by these?

    Read the Communist Manifesto and you will know why the current administration along with many democrats get that name. Some in the dem party are outright socialists. Such as B. Sanders.

    It's what Fascists, Theocrats and Republicans call people they don't like.

    Birds of a feather..

    Fascists and Theocrats are often excellent socialists, swallow.

    Mussolini, for example, was a direct product of the Socialist Party.

    You need to study up on your isms instead of your jisms.

    They're "isms" that should teach us to take with a rather large grain of salt, anybody touting one.

    It means you can no longer tell the difference between the DNC homepage and the CPUSA homepage; they say the same thing.

    It means many USMB Liberal posts are like they were cut and paste directly from the SP-USA homepage

    "THE SOCIALIST PARTY strives to establish a radical democracy ... where working people own and control the means of production and distribution through democratically controlled public agencies; where full employment is realized for everyone who wants to work...where the production of society is used for the benefit of all humanity, not for the private profit of a few"

    Those words have become conservative dogma. Use of such words denotes mental laziness.

    I agree they don't mean much, except as something with which to flog opponents. They lost a lot of their meaning when TP types started yelling "STOP SOCIALISM" one minute and "DON'T TOUCH MY MEDICARE" the next! :eusa_eh:
