With millennials coming of age, the US is and has been moving leftward for years. Capitalism, like all other systems of distribution has its major flaws. I’d say in the next 25 years democratic socialism will outweigh a capitalistic society. To answer your question, I’d say yes in some time.

Not Socialist, Democratic Socialist. There is a difference, words and definitions matter.

Whatever, where is the Democratic process in Socialism. NO WHERE. Do you really believe Putin is really elected? How about Fidel Castro? The Socialist decide who you will vote for. How in the hell is that even close to Democracy?

It needs to head towards a more socialist agenda but even countries like Canada are not considered socialist.
It’s a dirty word for the right as they don’t seem to understand that there’s a heck of lot of social programs in America.. and the people love it.

Name one Government program that people love.

@Richard1962 Medicare, Medicaid, unemployment, social security, chip

Roads Dick, we like having fucking roads. And public schools, among other things.

@Richard1962 REALLY!

Because Socialism sucks. Don't believe me ask the people in Venezuela. You name me one Govenrment controlled program that is worth a shit, besides the military?

@Green_eyes All ran like shit. I want one Government program that the Government runs well.

@Green_eyes, @Xuande How many roads, Dick, do you know are kept in good conduction? Every thing the corrupt Government gets it's hands on is raped until it does not work. You want the Government to tell you your job, your pay and after you too old to pay in anymore, what happens?

@Green_eyes, @Xuande Public school are shit too, dick.

@Richard1962 the talking points are real. Are you reading a script? How are private prisons faring? There are things that cannot be privatized, not and done well. With actual investment, our public roads, public fire departments, public police academies, public military, public schools and yes, our public jails, all do better dollar for dollar than private counterparts. I called you dick because your name is Richard, btw.

@Richard1962 you honestly think the military is run well. For an area that receives more money than the next ten countries combined, it should be perfection.. but it’s not. You can’t go off on education where this is not a priority for this administration despite the right continually cutting funding leading teachers to leave the profession. America’s academic scores are pathetic compared to the rest of the world.
As for healthcare, America is the only developed nation where life spans are decreasing every year despite paying three times as much per person than Countries with universal healthcare.

Not in this lifetime. But, it would be Nice. I predict a totalitarian government first. And massive decline - a bit faster than our current slow bleed.
