    Biden is team barbarism like any good liberal.

    I could swear I heard Biden say somewhere that he believes in the social ownership of the means of production in America. Or maybe it was AOC or some other "socialist" or "Commie" in Washington.

    Maybe Biden realizes that he won't be able to accomplish anything with Republican majorities in the House and Senate. Elections are won and lost based on branding not subtle distinctions. The Democrats would do well to heed the words of Abigail Spanberger, a moderate Democrat who flipped a previously Republican swing district in 2018 and was reelected by a hair-thin margin in 2020. Spanberger had some advice for the party if they wanted to retain their majorities on the use of the term "socialism" she specifically stated:
    This Democratic Congresswoman just spoke some hard truth to her party - CNNPolitics
    When Bernie Sanders or AOC use the phrase "Democratic Socialism" what they have in mind is a European style welfare state similar to that of Denmark and the other Scandinavian countries. When a lot of American voters especially in swing districts hear the word "socialism" Cuba, Venezuela and the former Soviet Union come to mind and the Republicans are going to label every Democrat candidate by reinforcing that perception. Biden realizes that and doesn't want to hand the Republicans an effective strategy on a silver platter.

    Wow, the CIA lady is against socialism too. Shocking! How many people does the CIA have to kill before people realize socialism is bad. :)

    The only socialists in this country are Democrats.

    Given the choice between the CIA lady who happens to support Joe Biden's agenda and a Republican who would kowtow to Kevin McCarthy and vote to block every remotely progressive legislative initiative occupying the seat for Virginia's 7th district I would go with the CIA lady.

    Unless the CIA can end the filibuster, who gives a shit. The progressive agenda is already DOA with a Democratic trifecta lol.

    Let's be honest, he doesn't even watch the videos. He reads the title and thinks that's enough. I know this because he has sent rebuttals to me with links to videos. I watch them and they have nothing to do with the title. That's how you get clickbaited.

    Democrats may be socialists, but they definitely aren’t the only socialists. There’s a reason Hayek devoted The Road to Serfdom to the “socialists of both parties”.

    If you find tedious arguments over points of order entertaining, we might make a socialist out of you yet.
