Re: Re:trump is not immune!

Why is it you lefty's go to great lengths to find fault of those on the right but never come up with anything to support your choices on the left? Do they suck that bad you have to dig for dirt on the other side?

Re: Democratic Socialism Explained

Nothing new. Vladimir Lennin did the same thing. Called it essentially the same thing, one hundred years ago:

 

In autumn 1893, Lenin moved to Saint Petersburg.[32] There, he worked as a barrister's assistant and rose to a senior position in a Marxist revolutionary cell calling themselves the "Social Democrats" after the Marxist Social Democratic Party of Germany.[33] Publicly championing Marxism among the socialist movement,[34] he encouraged the foundation of revolutionary cells in Russia's industrial centres.[35] He befriended Russian Jewish Marxist Julius Martov,[36] and began a relationship with Marxist schoolteacher Nadezhda "Nadya" Krupskaya.[37] By autumn 1894 he was leading a Marxist workers' circle, and was meticulous in covering his tracks, knowing that police spies were trying to infiltrate the revolutionary movement.[38] Although he was influenced by agrarian-socialist Pëtr Tkachëvi,[39] Lenin's Social-Democrats clashed with the Narodnik agrarian-socialist platform of the Socialist–Revolutionary Party (SR). The SR saw the peasantry as the main force of revolutionary change, whereas the Marxists believed peasants to be sympathetic to private ownership, instead emphasising the revolutionary role of the proletariat, or urban workers.[40] He dealt with some of these issues in his first political tract, What the "Friends of the People" Are and How They Fight the Social-Democrats; based largely on his experiences in Samara, around 200 copies were illegally printed.[41]

 

Lenin (left) in December 1895 and his wife Nadezhda.
Lenin hoped to cement connections between his Social-Democrats and Emancipation of Labour, a group of Russian Marxist emigres based in Switzerland, soon visiting Switzerland to meet group members Plackhanov and Pavel Axelrod.[42] He proceeded to Paris to meet Paul Lafargue and to research the Paris Commune of 1871, which he saw as an early prototype for a proletarian government.[43] Financed by his mother, he stayed in a Swiss health spa before traveling to Berlin, where he studied for six weeks at the Staatsbibliothek and met Wilhelm Liebknecht.[44] Returning to Russia with a stash of illegal revolutionary publications, he traveled to various cities distributing literature to striking workers.[45] Involved in producing a news sheet, The Workers' Cause, he was among 40 activists arrested and charged with sedition.[46]

Refused legal representation or bail, Lenin denied all charges against him but remained imprisoned for a year before sentencing.[47] He spent this time theorising and writing, focusing his attention on the revolutionary potential of the working-class; acknowledging that the rise of industrial capitalism in Russia had led large numbers of peasants to move to the cities, where they became proletariat, from a Marxist perspective he argued that they would gain class consciousness and then violently overthrow Tsarism, the aristocracy, and the bourgeoisie to establish a proletariat state that would move toward socialism.[47]

Re: Democratic Socialism Explained

Doubt very much that Democratic Socialist is the same as Social Democrat.

Re: Re:trump is not immune!

Exactly!   Why are you dimocrats not embracing Trump?  He is for abortion, nationalizing the banks, single payer healthcare, he thinks obma is doing a great job and probably voted for him, he loves bill and hill, he has not expressed any respect for the constitution, he will rule unilateraly and continue the fundamental transformation.  Admit it libs, you've been to one of his rallys.
