  •  Liberal socialist democracies have been tried (0+ / 0-)

    already--seemed to work for a while--but now Europe is going broke and having extreme austerity imposed on it by the bankster international banking cartel.

    A mixed economy with enough capitalism to produce needed goods and services and enough socialist taxes and subsidies to bring the bottom half of the socioeconomic heap up to a level of modest comfort may be the best we can do.  We have had electric and gas utilities and phone services recognized as natural monopolies and heavily regulated.  We probably need to treat health care the same way as utilities--with Medicare for the elderly, orphans, and disabled, and Medicaid for the poor to help pay for it.
