(08-02-2018) How are President Johnson, socialists, a CEO giving an employee a car, universal healthcare and office birthdays connected? Read on. The media are abuzz with 'socialism' and 'democratic socialists'. Technically, a democratic socialist is an oxymoron. Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are social democrats. They don't want a totalitarian government like in Venezuela that takes away your business.
(03-20-2016, updated 07-14-2018) Bernie Sanders alienates folks by using the wrong term. Democratic socialism is an oxymoron. Although he's otherwise pretty shrewd, I don't understand why Bernie Sanders refers to his ideas as such. It scares people and it's incorrect. He's a social democrat. His ideas: democracy and capitalism, but keeping the well-being of everyone in mind.
