The flawed argument is: "The right wing spin machine will really call X, and not Y, a socialist". Responding that they'll call any of them socialists is what will actually happen and not a flawed argument.

Well like the rest of the right you have no clue what socialism actually is, so there's that.

Clinton would be right wing in most western countries, Obama barely centrist.

There are two left wing candidates. The rest are centre or centre right politicians.

HRC basically a republican. Sounds good boys.

Keep on nitpicking that decade old post while also seriously suggesting we spend 90 trillion dollars on new entitlements.

Inso0, you think candidates who are to the right of basically every Western conservative party in other countries are socialists. This is why we make fun of you. You don't even try to be informed or accurate.

It’s pretty crazy that both of America’s civil wars are pretty much going to boil down to mean people vs. nice people.

Yea, you think you think that now that now, but to be a conservative means you didn't think that then. That's the definition of being a conservative, calling whatever is progressive at the time socialist.

I can, if you want, go dig up where everyone who's suggested anything progressive for the last 100 years has been called socialist, but we both know I don't have to.

when republicans say socialism, they really just mean wealth and power distribution away from white males.

when Trump says open the factory, he means to the benefit of white male factory workers.

so it does not conflict.

Some day before I die, I will witness David Skalanski calling out flawed arguments from the conservative side, but that day is not today.

Hey Inso0, how's it going? I'd like to engage with you on some productive and entertaining dialogue that will hopefully educate me, since you seem to know a lot more than I do on this topic. Fortunately for me, we have these wonderful forums with really intelligent people running them who have encouraged us to reach across the aisle in the spirit of productive intellectual discourse.

So, I don't think that the Democrats have 15 candidates tripping over themselves to out-socialism one another. But, perhaps my problem is that I don't actually know what socialism is. I know you're a very successful person who makes a lot of money, given that you often talk about how you have to pay too many taxes, but if you wouldn't mind using a few minutes of your valuable time, could you please educate me on what socialism is? I'd truly appreciate a few sentences about it so that I could figure out which 15 Democratic candidates I need to oppose so that I can fight against socialism in America.

Actually, on that note, I'm a little confused there too. This is obviously just my stupidity, but fortunately you are here to hopefully educate me. Why is socialism bad in and of itself? Why is it such a threat to America?

Thanks, Inso0. I look forward to engaging with you in some meaningful discourse! Once I know what socialism is and why it's so bad, we can engage in vigorous debate and maybe even have a little bit of fun.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

In exciting news from my very minimal look inside the right wing bubble through a Facebook friend, he and some of his friends have declared that if a socialist wins in 2020, they will fight to the death to save the Constitution. I assume this means that if anyone left of John Kasich wins, they're going to grab their guns? They literally said in no uncertain terms that if a socialist wins, they support a civil war.

I think that's probably where we're headed. It's just a matter of the scale on which it happens. But after the next Democrat wins, we're going to see another huge uptick in right wing terrorism/violence.

He also said he wants to "get rid of" all Democrats and start the country over from scratch. I'm not sure if he wants to kill us, jail us, or deport us. I asked for some clarification...

I'm going to have to stop looking inside the bubble, it's too scary/depressing.
