Socialism is a range of economic and social systems characterized by social ownership of the means of production as well as the political theories and movements associated with them. The Top 10 socialist countries in the world in 2012: China, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Canada, Sweden, Norway, Ireland, New Zealand, Belgium. Other countries who ascribe to this political ideology are Cuba, Venezuela, Greece and many others. Greece Illustrates 150 Years of Socialist Failure in Europe. There are many varieties of socialism and there is no single definition encapsulating all of them, though social ownership is the common element shared by its various forms. Social ownership may refer to forms of public, collective or cooperative ownership, or to citizen ownership of equity. The Socialist Party of America was founded in 1901. • “Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery” — Sir Winston Churchill. • Garry Kasporov, former World Chess Champion, put it this way on Super Tuesday, 3/1/16: ” I’m enjoying the irony of American (Bernie) Sanders supporters lecturing me, a former Soviet citizen, on the glories of socialism. Socialism sounds great in speech soundbites and on Facebook, but please keep it there. in practice it corrodes not only the economy but the human spirit itself.” • As a great economist Milton Friedman once said, “If you put the government in charge of the Shara Dessert, in five years there’d be a shortage of sand.“ Centralized government control, which is what socialism is, inevitably, ultimately, stamps out individual creativity and talent and industriousness. Collectivism is soul-killing.

AOC burning ad hits a media nerve.

from The Gray Area:

The mainstream media (Democrat propaganda machine) went absolutely crazy over this anti-socialism ad by Elizabeth Heng which includes a burning photo of AOC. They labeled the burning imagery as hate speech, while regularly pushing under the rug all the hate speech and actions of the left (shooting congressmen playing baseball, holding up severed head of the President, shooting people in Dayton, attacking Republicans in restaurants, attacking people who wear MAGA hats, black gang beating up handicapped white boy for being a Trump supporter, calling for people who attend Trump events to be publicly shamed and doxed, attacking right wing news anchors homes, attacking Senate majority leader's home, etc, etc, etc.).

What the Democrats & their media are really incensed about is someone putting an accurate image of the horrors of socialism - are you kidding me - during the Democrat debate. OMG! How perfect. They are also mad at ABC for not censoring that ad. They expect other media and social media outlets to censor any such ads or comments negative to Democrats & their issues, and this one got through. How horrible.

Watch the way Chris Cuomo, CNN, attacks Ms Heng.

He goes on a left wing filibuster against Donald Trump instead of interviewing or even letting her talk. He inserts his opinions as truth and interrupts her answers. He won't let her explain the use of the burning image or her reason for setting up her anti-socialism pact. Instead, using totally upside down logic and rationale, telling her why she did it and how wrong she is. In his filibuster he spouts inaccurate, over-hyped, out of context statements of the President to make Trump the example of Heng's socialist tyrants. Totally the reverse of truth.

They lost control of the message the public sees for 60 seconds, and that makes them crazy.

These attempts to confuse response to a Democrat issue, rather than discuss it, is a standard left wing and media tactic. It is now very obvious. And, very disgusting.

No wonder CNN, and other left wing rags, have no viewers/readers.
