I appreciate that you can afford the word "progressive" with a range of meanings. Does this meant that your mind is opening to a range of meanings for the word "socialism", as well?

You understand that we are talking about the party who elected Donald Trump...I think it's you whose understanding of things is a bit whack.
If Trump is a Republican that might be true. Trump is a party of one. Even if he did get the endorsement of the Republican Party he is and always will be a party of one. That one being Donald J. Trump.

Yes. When I use the word Socialism and spell it with a capital S I am talking about the economic system*. When spelled with a lower case s I am talking about the word's wide range of meanings. Unless the word is used to begin a sentence and then it is always spelled with a capital S. The same thing goes for the word progressive.

*How long the economic system of Socialism has existed is unknown because it has only been known as such for about 300 years.

All that matters is, he pisses liberals (and other sentient beings) off.

Again you have made the bogus claim that I have not read The Mueller Report. Unless you are spying on me you have no way in hell of knowing what I have or have not read! The only possible basis for that bogus claim is because my opinion of it does not agree with yours. Every time you have made that bogus claim NW you are showing that you do not believe in freedom. To believe in freedom requires the acceptance that others might disagree with you. That you make that bogus claim is an indication that you are like Donald J. Trump. He doesn't like it when people disagree with him. His bogus claim is that it is "fake news." Yours is that I haven't read The Mueller Report or Alan Dershowitz's introduction to it. Contrary to your bogus claim I have read both of them.

I'm glad you are changing your ways. I only posted that because you have been completely unobservant of my small "s" socialism references heretofore.

Jeepers, Hatrack, I had a few minutes at lunch so I searched your posts for the use of both big "S" and little "s" Ssocialism and, I am so sorry to have to reveal this, but you used the forms interchangeably to refer to Socialism (standard political def), but never to any other meanings of socialism.

Major bummer, dude.

[Mr.] Donald J. Trump. He doesn't like it when people disagree with him

He doesn't like it when people disagree with him because he is a narcissist and the true and valid things people say about him do not fit into his delusional vision of himself.

Once you accept Mr Trump is a narcissist, the Emperor will be a man standing without clothes.
