“There’s no accounting for what fate will deal you. Some days you will need a hand. There are other days when you’re called to lend a hand.”

This part of the Presidents speech captured beautifully a moral and ethical basis for Americas future. I am not sure I have heard a better articulation of Socialism ever. It was a beautiful and electrifying moment.

Being poor and needy is not a crime and nor is it a sin. It should not be punishable.

That has nothing to do with socialism. Nothing more than some generic speech garbage.

Biden didn't write that. Someone else made that happen.

Well he has to live up to that ideal but as a general principle it is pure socialism.

Socialism in the UK is predicated on the fact that we can all fall on hard times. So we chip in when we are doing well and get help when we are struggling. Its an act of faith.

Too often people on the right stigmatise the poor as moochers or scroungers without considering that it can happen to all of us.

If it isnt punishable, then why do you enjoy punishing the middle and upper class in the name of the poor?
A worthless statement after the Federal Reserve having pumped trillions into the markets. All you are saying is that the rich want it all.

Social consciousness is not synonymous with "socialism". Common action is not synonymous with "communism". Either side, "left" or "right" that tries to make these kinds of connections is using propaganda against the rest of us. The many working together for all is inherently American. We don't need overly-intellectualized 'isms' attached. Using ideas and solutions that work is logical. Imposing ideas and solutions merely out of attachment to doctrine is disastrous.

It isnt necessarily the case. At its core the NHS is a giant insurance scheme. The only difference between that and the US system is that its a lot more cost effective and we are all covered from cradle to grave.

Are you retarded. Socialism is government takeover of private industry. Government sponsored welfare programs isn't socialism.

Charity is an act of faith. What you have is government theft.

The government is creating the wealth with the trillions coming from the Federal Reserve.

The government produces nothing of its own.

The rich is really good at passing the buck and you want to blame the poor.

And there are some nasty people that will demand you lend an unneeded hand.
