Should all leftists advocating socialism go out and spend their time/money to start a business that they can then give away to the workers?

What is stopping them from living their socialist lifestyle?

    Socialists generally like to take over a capitalistic economy. Not start one from scratch. I sure didn’t see them protesting to take over toys r us.

    Ah, you're confusing communism for socialism. In communism, pure communism not the thing China has or the Soviet Union had, the workers own the means of producing goods and services. So giving away our business startup to the workers would be communism.

    We libs don't advocate communism. That's a flawed economic model.

    We advocate socialism. Using your case, it would work like this.

    We'd spend our time and money with a startup business. And then sell our business to the government that would then own and operate the business. And the government would ensure a fair and equitable distribution of the goods and services produced. That's socialism.

    If you understood what socialism actually is your question would make more sense. Shall we start with the basic truth that not all "leftists" are socialists? There are liberals, social democrats, communists, anarchists and many other subdivisions, just as there are fiscal conservatives, social conservatives and outright racists on the right.

    This "leftist" was born owning a share in a dozen businesses and a whack of real estate, and sneers at the obvious ignorance you demonstrate here. I strongly suggest you find out just what socialism is, compared to other "leftist" philosophies, before you make a fool of yourself again.

    They should recognize the benefit to all people who live in a capitalistic country.

    Yes, however there are so few leftists advocating socialism that it would have no discernible impact on America.
