  • Every democratic industrialized country in the world, including the US, uses a capitalist system with limited socialism. Democratic Socialism is not a different system but may favor slightly more state sponsored services. All capitalist countries provide most services provided by corporations and privately owned companies. All capitalist countries also provide some services such as fire fighters, law enforcement, public schools, public libraries, construction and maintenance of public roads, highways, and bridges, etc. provided by the state which is socialism. Those are important services that cannot be available unless everybody pays into them whether they like them or not and whether they use the services or not. Some countries have included petroleum companies because the product comes from the earth and is a necessity for the people. The cost of healthcare insurance has become out of reach of a huge portion of the population so most countries (not the US) also provide that along with fire fighters and law enforcement because it is also a life or death necessity. Systems of pure capitalism or pure socialism have never existed in the US. The notion that allowing any socialism will be "death to America" is ridiculous because we have never had pure capitalism or a total lack of socialism. That rhetoric is, unfortunately, politically charged and motivated to sound patriotic. It is, however, ignorant and clueless but ubiquitous among some groups who don't seem to know any better.
  • It doesn't differ. It just sounds better for the sheeple so they can say that it's not really socialism.
