Are US liberals once again rewriting history, declaring self proclaimed communists and socialists to be something else?

Communism and socialism has had a very bad track record when it is over-employed. So now guess what, the USSR was not communists and Venezuela are not socialists.

But wait. Bernie LOVED the USSR when he visited and thought it was a workers paradise.

And liberals LOVED Venezuela a few years ago.

What gives?

    Don't forget about California. Unchecked leftism has brought about sky high taxes, a low performing school system, a growing homeless problem, sanctuary cities, and will soon have a taxpayer funded health insurance program for illegals that will also get it's funding from Californians who don't buy health insurance for themselves. Look no further than California for a vision of America's future if we put the Democrats in control of this country.

    The DPRK claims to be democratic yet it clearly isn't.

    Self proclaiming yourself something doesn't make it so.

    What gives is simple...both nations are becoming autocratic dictatorships. Putin and Maduro are rapidly removing the last vestiges of democracy from the two nations.

    They ARE something else..Republicans will Hammer on socialism to keep you in tow, only the irony is, Republican President's always out spend Democrats. Your biggest spender, out of that last 5 Presidents, has been George W. (the biggest spender, at 10.626 Trillion)) & #2 is Reagan, and even at one term George H.W. The least was B. Clinton, and YES! Obama (with under 9 Trillion) Mostly stimulus for States that were broke & couldn't pay their bills, and before you explode, The Wall Street Journal did the analysis on Presidential spending.

    Democratic Socialism is not the same as the socialism in Venezuela. The kind of Democratic Socialism that Sanders, AOC and other are referring to does not exclude Capitalism, we just don't want it to be unfettered Capitalism, but we don't want to dismantle free trade markets and create welfare programs. We want everyone to have a job and everyone to get paid enough to not need welfare programs, and everyone to be guaranteed health care. That's the kind of Democratic Socialism we want in America.

    Liberals loved Hugo Chavez, huh? Where, exactly? You seem to know quite a bit about rewriting history yourself.

    Stop generalizing an entire political ideology or else I will do the same to conservatives. Ok here it goes, conservatives view underage marriage as ok, conservatives hate vegans and conservatives hate Starbucks because of red cups.
