You’re falsely equating Democratic Socialism with historical Socialism. (What a surprise) I’ll give you a glimpse of what DS looks like: Germany.
Germans have better quality of lives, are richer than us, and (drum roll, please) UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE. So guess what, buttercup? They live healthier and longer than us. And also, since Republicans have to be told infinity times, we already HAVE elements of Socialism in this country. Who pays for the roads and highways, the parks and libraries, and police and fire departments? Give up?
WE DO. That’s Socialism at work, big guy. Read a book sometime.
