Socialist?
If he wants to regulate the public transportation, real market, education, etc, to make it accessible to all- I salute it.
No matter what economic form you want to choose, it is important to make it fair to all.
After Bush came, we have a USA in a capital oriented-centralized mafia’s hands, and no one does anything about…

Hey Franz1.0, sorry again for earlier, I coulda swore your location said anytown, alabama lol.

If I could move to Australia, I would. Believe me, if they put me back on my feet and it was a successful operation, I would love to do IT for anyone there. Or teach, or work anywhere I was needed. A long time list is better than no list at all.

:)

I do not really understand how the healthcare works in America

In Austria we have full healthcare, but it is also very expensive for the country. It would be best to have full healthcare with private accounts, with a choice of private or government healthcare. That way, everyone gets better faster, and government healthcare is not so expensive for the country.

Socialist healthcare is not so bad, but it needs reform, and socialists do not want the reform, they want higher taxes and more spending

I cannot speak for all Socialists as many have different views I favour higher taxation of the rich and higher middle class and more spending on the people themselves as opposed to the current norm for most governmental bodies which is too spend tax money recklessly (wars, tax breaks for the rich and big corporations,the sponsorship scandal, appropriated funds which are used to accomodate politicians).

If you tax the rich too much, then they will go away.
Elimination of the bourgeois class is a pre-condition for proletarian emancipation and control of the means of production.

Then you will not make money anymore, yes?
That's perhaps the main focus of Communism elimination of a society regulated by money.
