@tsarstepan,
Oddly, our military falls into the socialist category.

Hopefully, we can educate people out of the knee jerk response to the word.

@Lash,
Admittedly, many of those (including that one) don't make sense to me as well. That doesn't fit at all. The author was pushing the definition a bit way to far there.

@tsarstepan,
In a nation that is mostly frontier, the 'conservative' notion of self reliance, shunning social programs, can work fine. But, when society is populated by city people, social programs are not merely desirable; they are a necessity. You can't live like Hugh Glass in downtown New York.

The military can legitimately be considered socialist because of the way it's constructed--funded by the many for public use (ostensibly).

I strongly prefer Democratic Socialism. 😉

@tsarstepan,
The public good is not socialism. I don't know why that always gets pulled out when these topics come up. Nationally run and tax payer funded are not socialism.

SOCIALIST PARTY USA

Quote:
Socialism is not mere government ownership, a welfare state, or a repressive bureaucracy. Socialism is a new social and economic order in which workers and consumers control production and community residents control their neighborhoods, homes, and schools. The production of society is used for the benefit of all humanity, not for the private profit of a few. Socialism produces a constantly renewed future by not plundering the resources of the earth.

Hillary Clinton's Campaign Turns Over Email List To DNC

The Democratic National Committee announced on Sunday that Hillary Clinton’s campaign had turned over its email list, giving the party a major boost as it rebuilds under a new chair and prepares for the midterm elections next year and the 2020 presidential race.

The list, provided as an in-kind contribution from the Hillary for America campaign organization, includes more than 10 million new names that the DNC did not have on its voter files, according to both Clinton and DNC aides. The contribution was valued as $3.5 million, according to data from the Federal Election Commission.

“This information will help candidates up and down the ballot engage with voters and win seats from the school board to the Senate,” said Xochitl Hinojosa, communications director for the DNC. “We’re seeing momentum and energy across the country, and this investment will help us harness the energy and turn it into votes.”

@revelette1,
And as for whoever this person is?
Xochitl Hinojosa as the communications director for the DNC?! Has a tiny online footprint in respect to a Google search of her name?

I'll follow her on Twitter to see if she can properly energize the Dem base or not.

Interesting to watch the special election in Georgia today. I doubt a democrat will win, but if Jon Ossoff even gets close, I would consider it a win just because it is in Georgia.
