    If John Gerzema's statement about Sweden and Canada being the polled youths definition of "socialist" countries, it's only a sad proof of that generations abject lack of knowledge. I'm originally from Sweden, and I can guarantee that it's not a socialist country by any normal definition! I would also presume that Canadians, while proud over their welfare state, vehemently would deny their country being "socialist". Let's not use terms were know little or nothing about. It's like many Trump supporters

It's like many Trump supporters haranguing and harassing liberals without actually knowing diddledit about what that is! Knowledge is power!
