No one is turned away from a hospital in this country. And yes - one party is promising unfettered socialism which is not only control of commerce but the power of the state to punish you for whatever it decides is a crime. Look to those who paint over racist grafitti on the street or those who brandish arms to protect their lives and property against the mob. Truth and justice are whatever is deemed such by the "leaders" and socialists will use the full force and power of the government to punish these people by bankrupting them or putting them in jail. You see it is a lesson from history. Nothing undesirable is done without the threat of force. For socialism to work, those same police who are now being called pig opressors will become the spear tip by which socialism is enforced. To believe in socialism as an acceptable form of government is sad and indicative of a failed education system or the desire for a king. Will the lessons of the Book of Mormon never be learned!

I agree with Geoff-Aus that the cost of health care in America is a major problem. Many friends and family members struggle with the high costs of paying for their health care. Some even going bankrupt or are left with huge medical bills that they have to pay off over many years. Australia is not a socialist country but has a universal health system that works well..

Socialism is a system that advocates for the poor. Britain is socialist. Russia is communist. I think socialism is more what Jesus would do than capitalism which is all about selfishness.

Gary, I appreciate your thoroughness and simple explanation of Socialism and its underlying destructiveness!

Agency is one of my favorite topics, because it is so central to achieving our eternal potential and so underrated by the world. I think that it's Satan's doing -- that he hasn't given up on his original plan to remove our agency: https://bryanelkins.wordpress.com/2017/10/11/the-war-in-heaven-continued/

So the only countries that fit your definition of Socialism are communist. By your definition, There is no political party offering socialism in America. Universal healthcare is not socialism, and costs the country less than the current system, and with the virus, imagine you are poor, you have no health insurance, but might have the virus. If there was universal healthcare, you would get treated. YOU COULD HAVE JUST SAID WE DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT SOCIALISM, BECAUSE NO POLITICAL PARTY, IS ADVOCATING FOR IT.
