    There has to be some level of social programs for a capitalist society to maintain. Socialism is a redistribution of wealth through government control. The concept on face value is alluring to many, but those in power are the ones controlling the means, which always leads to corruption. Too much power over the masses.

    What I'm hearing is that housing will be much less expensive after the revolution.

    Totally lacking in context.

    We agree probably.

    The Gallup questions lacked context.

    Most all posters here support "some form of socialism" when put in he context of publicly owned high schools or Social Security or widely accepted components of long-extant US socialism.

    So, what needs to happen in my eyes is we start calling out, exposing, demonizing and persecuting socialists and Communists. Like in the good ole days! Joseph McCarthy was ahead of his time.

    I’m curious how many here know what the determining factor in socialism really is.

    I'm not sure what you might mean by "determining factor", but I know what socialism is.

    As far as economics it means that production is publicly (government) owned instead of privately. Of course that means that the few, or one, that run the government have the say over the many, in other words the public's overseers.
