Democrats, do you realize the Coronavirus Lockdown is just a glimpse of what Socialism would be like?
While in a socialist society there may not be obvious physical barriers there are invisible ones. You can't make too much money. You can't hoard resources. The Government makes all those decisions for you, including rationing. Isn't it funny then, that with the Coronavirus Pandemic we see people hoarding toilet paper!? Well guess what ? Since far left liberals seem to want socialism, what they don't realize is that in a "fair," society there won't be any toilet paper to hoard! The bottom line is, Democrats think socialism is a good idea, but it's actually one of the worst ideas this country has ever seen.

The US Federal Government has taken no real actions on this. The US is an example of what happens in a Country with limited government response to a crises. Panic buying in unregulated markets, individual states an counties doing what ever they want, companies deciding what kind of worker protections will be enforced. Unfocused, rumor packed, fear driven.

No, especially not those of us who have visited a warsaw-pact country. Socialism means no unemployment, no billionnaires and no homeless. It means miners get paid more per hour than doctors. Actual Socialism means the means of production are owned by the people/workers, and the profits don't go to some CEO or shareholder

Then you must be against farm bailouts, unemployment insurance, FEMA, the current bailout money that the federal government is allocating to people and small business, social security, public education, etc
You must be for private hospitals, private highways and roads, private EMS personnel, private law enforcement, etc. You must be against any enterprise that isn't profitable. What you are currently seeing in the US is the result of unbridled capitalism and the dismantling of any policy that is concerned with the public good.

I lived in Sweden and it was great. Socialism works. Just look at our socialist programs like Medicare, Public Schools and Social Security. All are Socialist programs. If they were adequately funded like they are in other actual Socialist countries around the Globe, they would work even better. You really are wasting your breath demonizing Socialism as intelligent folks know what it is and what it is not. It is not anything like what the ignorant so called "Conservatives" call it. And nobody is going to do away with the Capitalism we have.... no more than Sweden, Denmark or other Socialist countries would do that. You can have a capitalist socialist country, we are already partly there. I suggest you look at Germany or some of the other more successful Socialist Capitalist societies around the world. You probably have never even been out of this country. There is a whole world out there to explore and many of the best places are Socialist. Countries like Venezuela are NOT real socialism any more than USSR was real communism. They were both hijacked by Dictators who perverted it. Just as the Far Right Nazi's did when they called themselves socialists. Anybody who reads history knows these things. Try reading a good book on why are Socialist programs have made this country #1. . You will see Universal Medical Care in our lifetime....a great Socialist policy. Probably sooner than you think.
