Nearing Critical Mass

A recent Gallup Poll points out that 47% of Americans would consider voting for a socialist for president.

Rise of a New Socialist Party

America is ready for a Socialist president.

Socialist policies grew America's middle-class; capitalist policies destroy the Middle-class.

When the industrial revolution began in America and individual liberty and autonomy began to erode, many Americans chose to flee the capitalist-controlled industrial centers.

Go West Young Man.

Go West Young Man became the motto of Americans who rejected industrialized capitalism, moving west towards the frontier in search of a more “equal” agrarian-based society.

Eventually, the historian Frederick Jackson Turner would ponder the psychological and sociological affects in control of capitalism would have on the individual psyche in his speech that considered the closing of the frontier. Americans always had a frontier to escape to if things became to difficult, a phenomenon revealed in the famous Little House series written by Laura Ingalls Wilder. That westward movement over several generations, however, eventually consumed the frontier, leaving nowhere for the next generation of Americans to flee to.

The economic crises caused by the Gilded Age inspired President Theodore Roosevelt's Square Deal for the American workers. That progressive movement caused the economic prosperity that followed. But, when capitalists began to meddle in American politics again, that era of prosperity ended with the Great Depression.

Each era of increased capitalism led to a financial crisis. Every time socialism is increased, an era of historic economic prosperity begins.

Capitalism oppresses people with under-employment and low-wages. Socialism, on the other hand, restricts those who have been placed in position of trust from using their positions to oppress others. Or another way of putting it – Socialism oppresses the capitalist's ability to oppress the workforce.

Socialist Party Protest for Fair Wages

Are You A Socialist?

Defining Capitalism, Socialism, Communism & Fascism

Caveat: There are some inherent pitfalls trying to offer simple, bite sized definitions of capitalism, socialism, communism and fascism.

For a point of reference, the United States is a Constitutional Democratic Republic that has long embraced both capitalism (free markets) and socialism (public schools and universities, and public works – parks, roads and highways, sewer and water, dams, harbors, as well as social welfare, such as worker’s comp, unemployment insurance, social security etc.).
