I'm sure I've done the same thing in the passt: Call someone a "socialist", but over the years I've become uncomfortable with using that word as a negative attirbute. Not that I mind people calling someone a socialist, but rather than use it as a dirty word, explain why socialism isn't a good thing.

We're seeing this to some extent in the Benie Sanders campaign. Now Russian chess expert, Gary Kasparov, comments on it. At least he explains himself to some extent. If the image below is too hard to read, you might try clicking on it. That will take you to Facebook, though:

Addendum: The fellow featured in this article says Sanders isn't a socialist.

Democratic socialist countries like denmark, sweden and Germany are the MOST BUSINESS FRIENDLY countries in the world and the HAPPINESS countries in the world.

You sound like an uneducated fossil talking about political systems like this. It is 2016 and you sound like joseph Mccarthy.

Here is the most ironic thing. You and all the other fake conservatives laughed and cheered whIle we sent our jobs to a REAL communist country called China. After spending untold trillions fighting the spread of communism, good old Nixon went over and kissed ass to REAL communists.

Yet, we have ignoramuses who couldn't tell you the difference between there head and there bottom side, yet alone distinguish political systems.

Why misrepresent Bernie Sanders political party? He is a DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST. Not a socialist. A very simple Google search will tell you all you need to know.

Unless you find it cute to misrepresent things. Not like many people in Humboldt would know the difference.

The puppets won't wake up until after they find themselves dreaming of a pay raise because equal $10.00 per month, a brick of cheese & a loaf of bread just doesn't go very far. They don't allot for pet food either, except for service dogs. Once they're no longer of service, they're disposed of. There will be no choice. The homeless shelters go empty because they don't allow pets. Conditioning.

If Bernie is such a socialist, why are he and Donald Trump the only candidates talking about trade protections for American workers?

Calling people names who are trying to get our jobs back. Sickening. Lying about the people's political party. Even worse.

I will be voting for either Bernie or Trump. Both support trade tariffs, both favor legal pot, neither will spend all of our money and youth on war and destruction, neither of them care who, where, when and why I am having sex, neither will bow to any of that religious nonsesnse. Oh yeah, they both support universal health care and planned parenthood too. Both lifelong pro choicers.

It saddens me that the population of America is unable to distinguish COMMUNISM from SOCIALISM

Quoting a person who milked his own country before leaving it is a pretty poor choice

To a large extent America needs a socialist influence on government, NOT a socialist government just an influence, to put some perspective on exactly how unjust the government is

BTW much praise for Blair in the day, he was the leader of the British Socialist government at the time he dragged us into Afghanistan

8:50, Gary Johnson might be worth your time to research. He believes in the true free market, not the convoluted congress type.

Democratic is mob ruled. A constitutional Republic is individual rights protected. (yes, even short people). The constitutional republic uses the democratic process to vote for constitutional issues only. Self governing without harming others is off limits to governing.
Denmark is a monarchial constitution. The king reigns.
The EU is a parliamentary, where those in office decide who will replace them.
The USA is people ran. Well, it's supposed to be, but the anarchists have taken over office. Anarchists reign through fear. The biggest bully wins.
The only perfect way was the original constitution, not the perverted constitutional law that replaced it, through ignorance of the people.
The constitution allows freedom of choice for all. Need a social program? Create a voluntary one in your neighborhood. Have surplus coming out your ears? Vote on how to distribute it.

Socialism is the transition stage between capitalism and communism. One is by vote, one is by force. But, the interesting part, is that it is unconstitutional to elect those who do not protect the self governing rights of the people, limit the govts, and promote (not provide) well being.

I found this article on the different types of govts to be enlightening.

Another thought. When 100 people out of 100 people all work and contribute, there is unlimited prosperity for all, When 75 out of 100 people work and contribute, there is the "getting by" phenomonem, which we are all accustomed to. When 25 out of 100 people work and contribute, everyone suffers. This is common knowledge. Yet, through media manipulation, we are led to believe that the 25 must cough up more.

Typo: Democratic should read democracy.

Except that there are billions of homosapiens, so unlimited prosperity for all is ancient history, Never gonna happen until 3/4 of human population disappears.

10:20 exactly. The number one cause of suicide? Financial stress. They have it covered.
The number 2 cause? Emotional stress. They have this covered. The smoking age limit they're trying to pass TODAY has nothing at all to do with health. It has everything to do with CPS having yet another excuse to kidnap your kids.
The number 3 cause? Fear, anxiety, pain, PTSD from rape, war, & other trade dies out of your control.

Giving them the right to control the age a child is mature, means they can change it for all cases & agencies. Don't think for a minute they won't change when a child can be on their own. The CPS receives $$$ for every kid they confiscate. The foster homes receive the $$$ too, PLUS they receive bonuses for every "problem" child they put on prescription medication.
