Unless your a libertarian in America and I believe that some libertarians actually do want some form of socialism. Even Libertarian Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson has said that he's for Block Granting are Welfare State. Essentially turning over our Welfare State over to the States to ru
What I would like to see America as a liberal and an american, have is an Economic System with vast Economic Freedom, thats well regulated to prevent unfair abuses in the system, with no Corporate Welfare. And we continue to have Low Taxes and a Safety Net that catches people who fall through the cracks of the economy so to speak. But helps them up and doesn't try to take care of the indefinitely just because they are poor and Low Skilled. But empowers them to get the skills that they need so they can become Self Sufficient. For people who say America should become more like Europe especially Sweden lets say the Socialist Utopia. For that to happen socialists in America are going to have to convince a lot more americans, especially the Middle Class where most of us live. That your taxes are two low even though you might be struggling right now maybe just to pay your taxes. And that your better off with less freedom to take care of yourself and set your own course in life and that you would be better off letting the Federal Government take more care of you.
For American Socialists they have a very tough Political Battle ahead of them if they want to convince a majority of americans. That we would be better off living in a Socialist Democracy like Sweden. And having the Federal Government take more care of us and living with less freedom. Because we are a country that was founded by rebels that was trying to get away from a British System like this. And we like our Individual Freedom.
