    I'm a libertarian socialist.

    I think people should have a lot of social freedom, but I also think anarcho-capitalism is base, animalistic, and immoral...and also kind of idiotic, as putting large numbers of people in poverty increases crime and disease.

    Cuba
    Laos
    Vietnam

    Yes... I wonder how many people are on this forum.. or have a computer AT ALL living in these places.

    I doubt anyone here wants to support Cuban, Chinese, or Soviet communism, but thank you for sharing. That must have been hard for your family.

    Oh wait...that one weird guy likes China....

    Okay, so the USA has been socialist for most of its existence.

    No, the US is defined as a REPUBLIC, though often called a democracy.. and ya the socialism is undoubtedly coming.

    The US founders tried to severly limit government power with the constitution. The problem is that the constitution is soon to be nothing more than a tattered, dusty, scrap sitting in some library. I'd say things first started to go bad with the (controversial) passage of the 16th amendment under Wilson in 1916 making it legal to tax a mans labor.
