45 percent of US Democrats favour socialism. Fortunately most Americans still believe in capitalism – Telegraph Blogs

There are other words for socialism that means basically the same thing. Collectivism is the term that defined the early creation of communist states such as what Lenin achieved in Russia and what Mao originally drove into China in the 1950's. This economic system did not last long as problems rose almost immediately and in the case of China, a massive famine ensued.

As economies failed and leaders had to tighten political power to control unsatisfied people, nations were forced to control people through nationalism and patriotism. Fascism which emphasizes certain ideologies such as nationalism and patriotism which can be considered reactionary forms of collectivism, as they emphasize the role of the nation or the state over individuals. Sound familiar?

in addition to collectivism and fascism, socialism is also described as communism or Marxism as Marx and Engels were the inventors so to speak of these economic and social techniques.

So what is with these foolish Democrats?
It reveals that Democrats are evenly divided in their views on socialism, with 45 percent viewing it favourably, and 45 percent negatively. This is a strikingly high level of support for socialist ideology within a political party in the United States (and the ruling party at that), and strongly suggests that Democrats are increasingly moving towards a continental-European style approach to economic issues, advancing a big government agenda that resembles that of European Social Democratic governments
