    Danish PM in US: Denmark is not socialist

    And, of course, others sources have pointed out that, even if it's only "an expanded welfare state," it is also failing, but, having a smaller population than Maryland, made up primarily Danes (88% Danish and most of the other 12% are European immigrants), it isn't failing as fast as we are starting to.

    In short - Denmark sucks, economically, and they are still outraged that Bernie Sanders calls them socialists.
     
    Fred Hansen, nursetim and KIMBERSM like this.

    Well, if they don't want to be called socialists then they shouldn't do socialist things. That's like engaging in criminal activity and getting all indignant when someone calls you a criminal.

    It makes you wonder where their line defining socialism is drawn.

    Socialism is a flawed concept. Big government is like a black hole sucking in all productive activities and destroying them. Sanders is one of those American idealists that is incapable of doing intelligent research and concluding that all examples of socialism have failed. Hamstringing the American economy, building bullet trains that nobody is going to ride, and replacing traffic lights with rotaries is not going to create a utopia. It is going to destroy the strongest bastion of freedom the world has ever known and lead us into a slide backward to totalitarianism and the elimination of the middle class.
    And Sanders looks up to failed European economies as the model he wants to install here.
