And there isn't a single self declared country that's truly socialist. Sort of like calling the US a democracy.

the u.s. is called a republic and a democracy:



I often hear people argue that the United States is a republic, not a democracy. But that’s a false dichotomy. A common definition of “republic” is, to quote the American Heritage Dictionary, “A political order in which the supreme power lies in a body of citizens who are entitled to vote for officers and representatives responsible to them” — we are that. A common definition of “democracy” is, “Government by the people, exercised either directly or through elected representatives” — we are that, too.

The United States is not a direct democracy, in the sense of a country in which laws (and other government decisions) are made predominantly by majority vote. Some lawmaking is done this way, on the state and local levels, but it’s only a tiny fraction of all lawmaking. But we are a representative democracy, which is a form of democracy.

And indeed the American form of government has been called a “democracy” by leading American statesmen and legal commentators from the Framing on. It’s true that some Framing-era commentators made arguments that distinguished “democracy” and “republic”; see, for instance, The Federalist (No. 10), though even that first draws the distinction between “pure democracy” and a “republic,” only later just saying “democracy.” But even in that era, “representative democracy” was understood as a form of democracy, alongside “pure democracy”: John Adams used the term “representative democracy” in 1794; so did Noah Webster in 1785; so did St. George Tucker in his 1803 edition of Blackstone; so did Thomas Jefferson in 1815. Tucker’s Blackstone likewise uses “democracy” to describe a representative democracy, even when the qualifier “representative” is omitted

Because it can't work. Socialism is like tying a rope around your waist and trying to pick yourself up.

And yet you liberals keep on wanting to try it (like in Denmark where it's a failure).
You've clearly done no sailing... sailors regularly pull themselves up the mast.

now, tell me about Denmark's failure...
Their healthcare is NOT free, their standard of living is not higher. The people are HEAVILY taxed.

So, now that that's cleared up, tell me. Why has socialism failed everywhere it's been tried? The USSR, N Korea, Cuba, where the gov't controls it all.

Great definitions. I applaud the time and thought you put into finding your response.

And how many times have you heard tea party conservatives claim this is not a democracy?

Why are you complaining about Socialism?

And what do you think the stupidest man in American political history would know about it?
