You can have a private economy and welfare state

    Agreed, they are not the same. The welfare state is a little less disgusting.

    If it looks like socialism, sounds like socialism, talks like socialism, and tastes like socialism, then it's socialism.

    Because they don't know the difference.

    A welfare state is a type of mixed economy, the welfare state funds the governmental institutions for healthcare and education along with direct benefits paid to individual citizens. Modern welfare states include Germany and France, Belgium and the Netherlands,[4] as well as the Nordic countries, which employ a system known as the Nordic model. The various implementations of the welfare state fall into three categories: (i) social democratic, (ii) conservative, and (iii) liberal.

    Socialism is a scareword they have hurled at every advance the people have made in the last 20 years. Socialism is what they called public power. Socialism is what they called social security. Socialism is what they called farm price supports. Socialism is what they called bank deposit insurance. Socialism is what they called the growth of free and independent labor organizations. Socialism is their name for almost anything that helps all the people.

    Where do socialist welfare states get the money? From people that work for it.

    • From corporate taxes.... instead of in America where they take taxes from people and the give it to the corporations.

    Liberals are so in love with socialism they find any country they like and say it’s a socialist state. It’s due to their lack of education and knowledge of history.

    Why are you calling them socialist? Because you’re the stupid one. What about Denmark? Are they socialist?

    • Only stupid people would call a country like Norway anything but socialist—a country with a higher quality of life and lower debt than the USA
