    “If you don’t pay the fine, they imprison you,” argued Paul. “If you will not listen, ultimately, what has happened in history, people get mad when I say this, but they exterminate you. That’s what happened under Stalin.”
    Damn straight, bolsheviks should not be admitted to polite society.

    Employing a bolshevik is worse than employing a member of the Manson family...

    ...the Manson people only killed, what, 50?

    The bolsheviks killed 100+ million.

    personae non gratae

    The black listing in the 50s didn't go far enough; McCarthy was right.

    They deserve nothing but eternal contempt and hatred.

    I concur, it's time to call a duck by its proper name. Labeling oneself a "Democratic Socialist" is essentially labeling oneself a "Socialistic Socialist", democracy is socialism, and both should be rejected for the same reasons.

    Indeed

    If I owned a restaurant or other sort of similar business, I'd hang a sign outside "Bolsheviks Not Welcome."

    ....course, this would just confuse most patrons, but nonetheless.

    No rational man/woman should employ them, sell food/anything to them.

    Preferably, they'd die on the street, qua hobos.

    ....unfortunately, many of them have tenure at prestigious universities.

    Socialism is armed robbery while using the slogan of "helping the poor". You can give money to homeless people but you don't need to rob a bank in order to do so.

    "Democratic socialism" and "state capitalism" are the same thing from a slightly different angle.

    Sanders is no socialist. Socialists believe that the means of production should be owned by those who directly use them. He proposes nothing of that sort. He's just another run of the mill statist trying to dress up political beliefs with some sorta radical edge.

    We on the right spend a lot of time getting irritated with leftists defining capitalism for us. Doesn't mean we need to go around defining socialism for the left either.

    The big problem is that while people don't like to pay taxes, not everybody logically equates that to 'big government'. Some people just don't ever consider government getting small. Government truly is the 21st century religion. People consider government something all-powerful and all-mighty, perfect even, in the way they follow it. The government 'has always been there and will always be there' kind of outlook is something I encounter a lot with people.

    People are just scared to take care of themselves. That's the real problem. People want to have their liberty but most people do not want to be free. 'Democratic' socialism can be defeated by taking responsibility for yourself and making that popular with other people.

    Technically speaking, no one on the right is defining socialism, the people who did that were the ones who founded the Union of Soviet SOCIALISTS Republic, as well as all its puppet regimes throughout Eastern Europe and Asia. The collectivization of the means of production was attempted in every 20th century communist country. That's not ideological rhetoric, that's history 101.
