PostSubject: Socialism   Mon Nov 09, 2015 8:00 pm

One of the presidential candidates for the next American election is a socialist democrat (Bernie Sanders).  I have noticed that a lot of people (not anyone here just American's in general) don't really understand what socialism is and often compare it to communism. 

A few (not all) of Bernie's ideas are:
Free and equal healthcare for all Americans.
Free public college for furthering education.
A minimum hourly wage of $15 per hour.

I want to start a discussion from all sides.  We have ladies here from all sorts of places and some actually already have some of these active in their countries.  For you gals, do you think that any of the socialist views listed above are beneficial?  Do you think that some can be improved on or that some didn't even exist in your country?   

For the American ladies, do you like any of the ideas listed above?  Do you think that America as a whole would benefit from them?  

(Please note that this particular thread is not to discuss how these would be financed, if need be I can make another thread for that to be discussed.  The goal of this thread is to learn more about the ideas themselves.)  

To read more of Bernie's issues that he supports you can visit his website at https://berniesanders.com/issues/

I love the free public college and free and equal health care. I think those would be beneficial for everyone. 

I do not agree with minimum wage going to $15. If you want to make that or more further your education or apply for better jobs.
