    Europe is most certainly socialist. Where have you been? Most countries in Europe practise democratic socialism. Not as bad as communism but Karl Marx considered socialism an intermediate step before full blown communism. The gov raises taxes and owns many key businesses. People are forced to surrender many rights to the gov, rights that we still have. We stand to lose those rights if the anarchist BLM and Antifa have their way. They set cars on fire and break storefronts and loot businesses but our Democrimers call that a "peaceful protest". One of these guys shot a person who did not agree with him point blank.
    We showed Europe that personal freedom works and works well. Most of Europe dumped their kings trying to compete with us. But many EU countries now buy into the One World Government utopian myth being spread by the UN and Pope Franny. And buying into OWG requires giving up freedoms to the gov. And when OWG is in place people will learn the truth by giving up a bunch more freedom.
    Why do you want to give up so much personal freedom?
    Let me ask you a question about racism. In my town 11 whites were killed last year by blacks. Funny thing but no "peacefull" protests and the media reported these deaths once and were done.
    Is this racism?

    So does every government on the whole world.

    For example in Germany some airports, the post office, the federal printing office, railway, some tv and radio stations, air traffic control, one telecommunication company.

    Firearms law is the only thing that comes to my mind. Have you a few examples of the many rights?

    That simply is wrong. The kings were dumped in 1918 at the end of World War I when peoples demanded sovereignty.

    @Centrehalf just to let you know I've split the thread.

    Europe, among other places. Where have you been?

    No they don't. They have market economies. They are not socialist.

    They have taxes for sure but as for government owning key businesses...not so sure I agree with you on that point.


    Such as?

    Funny thing about this...the countries that Bernie pointed out as Democratic Socialist all have market economies and all still have monarchs. Stop watching Hannity.
