Do you really, truly think the Democrats are using Venezuela as their model, instead of Germany, Canada, Australia, Norway?Ah, so when the right misuses the term, it's confusion and refusal to understand. When the left does it, it's for brevity. Lol. You "my team good, your team bad" types never cease to crack me up. The tribalism is so thick with some of you folks that I can damn near put a coat of paint on it.They didn't. They aren't.So, just to be clear: You think that the Left wants us to more closely emulate Venezuela, and not Canada, Australia, Germany and Norway.
Is that really what you think?
.Oh? What industry did Canada nationalize? I had no idea they were implementing centralized economic control.I hardly see people protesting in the streets in Canada.
The Right refuses to recognize the difference between actual socialism and social democracy, so you get confused.
The Left just calls it "socialism" now simply for the sake of brevity now, I assume. But more than that, the Left also knows that the Right has completely diluted the term to mean almost anything, the word only scares right wingers at this point, and no doubt the Left is very thankful for that.
Personally, I don't get confused by how low info types, left or right, use the term. I'm pretty confident in the definition I'm using.
Do you truly believe that?
Yes or no?
