Regarding socialism, it wasn't that long ago, only about 10 years, that Democrats were singing a different tune. In reaction to a 2009 Newsweek cover entitled, "We Are All Socialists Now," then Rep. Carol Shea-Porter, D-N.H., at a town hall meeting in 2010, exclaimed, "I don't think anybody in this country believes in socialism. I don't know 'em, and I don't hang out with 'em, but maybe you do."
You can't hardly say that anymore. Socialism/communism/leftism is on the rise, especially among younger voters. A Fox News poll from just a couple of weeks ago "finds 31 percent of voters view socialism favorably, up 6 percentage points since February (the first time the question was asked)." MORE
