But seriously, there hasn’t been an intelligent dialogue about Socialism in this country in ages, if ever. GOP memory isn’t a fraction as good as their national symbol. Here’s a reminder: Reaganist capitalism has failed (tax cuts for Richy-rich, trust the magic of the market, Deregulation, repeat until filthy rich)
Since Republicans don’t generally respond to logic, reason, and a collapsed economy, then perhaps a rebranding is in order.
Maybe something a little more age appropriate to guide them along—imagine if socialism got a new symbol— like Barney!
Check out Joan Walsh’s amusing blog post on socialism at Salon.
“There is no ‘truth’ about socialism, there are truths; just as there is no socialism, but many socialisms.”
“CNBC’s crazy Jim Cramer recently called Obama a “Bolshevik,” an even older, more obscure, more irrelevant slur.”
