Why don't Democrats openly endorse socialism?

It seems to me that Democrats want socialism but are afraid to say they want socialism. Why is that? Is it because they are embarrassed to be socialists? Is it because they can't make an affirmative argument for socialism? Or is it because they know it is wrong to steal other people's money and they don't want to go on record as being thieves?

Can some of you more socially minded fellows explain what your hold up is on socialism?

Sure, but to get there they first have to go through liberalism, radicalism, socialism and then they can get to communism.

First the liberals have to take away OUR 2nd amendment rights. As long as we have that one, they know we wont allow them to end up Communist or Fascist

Well then you are simply not seeing straight or don't understand what that word means.

Socialism would be government owning majority of the means of economic output, very few Democrats support something like that.

Can some of you more socially minded fellows explain what your hold up is on socialism?

How do you personally define socialism?

We already have plenty of socialist policies in place in the U.S., dingus.

And, both Democrats and Republicans love them.

Dems want to be socialists without any of the affiliated baggage.

Socialism to me is the pictures below. No matter who ends up in control of Socialist Government it always ends in disaster.

Some Democrats already do endorse it.
Yep, and they became much more open with it when Bernie was running.

The question is whether it's traditional socialism or a Euro-social democracy that we're talking about. More of them support the latter.
.

Bernie is as much a socialist as he is a monkey...unless you think Sweden has a socialist economy of course.

Congratulations, you're correct for a change. Democrats are as much socialists as they are monkeys.

So it should not be that difficult for you to make an affirmative case for socialism, right? Go ahead. Tell me about the formal socialism of socialism. Can you do that?

How do you personally define socialism?
Socialism intentionally denies examination because it is irrational. There is no formal defined dogma of socialism. Instead there is only a vague, rosy notion of something good, noble and just: the advent of these things will bring instant euphoria and a social order beyond reproach. Socialism seeks equality through uniformity and communal ownership Socialism has an extraordinary ability to incite and inflame its adherents and inspire social movements. Socialists dismiss their defeats and ignore their incongruities. They desire big government and use big government to implement their morally relativistic social policies. Socialism is a religion. The religious nature of socialism explains their hostility towards traditional religions which is that of one rival religion over another. Their dogma is based on materialism, primitive instincts, atheism and the deification of man. They see no distinction between good and evil, no morality or any other kind of value, save pleasure. They practice moral relativity, indiscriminate indiscriminateness, multiculturalism, cultural Marxism and normalization of deviance. They worship science but are the first to reject it when it suits their purposes. They can be identified by an external locus of control. Their religious doctrine is abolition of private property, abolition of family, abolition of religion and equality via uniformity and communal ownership. They practice critical theory which is the Cultural Marxist theory to criticize what they do not believe to arrive at what they do believe without ever having to examine what they believe. They confuse critical theory for critical thinking. Critical thinking is the practice of challenging what one does believe to test its validity. Something they never do.
