REMEMBER the US was specifically founded as a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC, not a democracy. The Idea of a democracy even a monarchy were floated and REJECTED.
From Democratic Socialist of America Website: Democratic socialists believe that both the economy and society should be run democratically—to meet public needs, not to make profits for a few. To achieve a more just society, many structures of our government and economy must be radically transformed through greater economic and social democracy so that ordinary Americans can participate in the many decisions that affect our lives.
Democracy and socialism go hand in hand. All over the world, wherever the idea of democracy has taken root, the vision of socialism has taken root as well—everywhere but in the United States. Because of this, many false ideas about socialism have developed in the US.
That statement alone should be enough to cause anyone to have their warning lights and bells wot start blaring. Yet they would try and convince us the vision of socialism has taken root as well—everywhere but in the United States. NOT!
