    Socialist/Capitalist hybrid more like. Similar to the current system that we already enjoy. Medicaid/Medicare, social security, unemployment, the public school system, public library, road systems, or any other government system that benefits the people is socialism. The fear of USSR or Venezuelan style communism/socialism is not what they're talking about here. It's more about spending tax dollars to benefit the people and maybe spending a bit less on corporations and making weapons. Baby boomers were programmed to fear the "S" word and this will not change. Maybe a synonym is in order to reduce the left over cold war fears. It's amazing to me how many people are against spending tax dollars to help out the people while there is very little backlash over spending money on instruments of destruction. I'm not naive, I understand the importance of having a strong military but it is at an extreme level of funds that could help people instead of killing them. Invest a small fraction of this money into education and see the positive impact after a couple generations.
