Yes, it's true. The world is going to collapse, OMG!
I decided to do this after some conversations in my family of trying not to tell people that we are socialists when we get to the USA, because we perfectly know that socialism is mostly frowned upon there. So, If I preferably don't express my political view there, I will express it here, in dA, as a good ol' stamp.
Well, pretty much socialism ensures that, unlike communism, you can make money out of your business's profits, but, unlike capitalism, it ensures that other workers in your business also get a part of that profit to cover their personal necessities.
Let's put France as an example. France is a socialist country, and guess what, they have one of the best healthcare systems in the world
. People there have free healthcare, free college tuition and there is less poverty and crime. Also, people don't get too rich or horribly poor, because the government regulates incomes and offers social benefits. So, France is a great example of a socialist government. With socialism, there is no "rich" or "poor", everybody has an amount that can aboard their personal necessities, and at the same time let people have their own business (in large businesses of course that the profit is then managed and regulated so that the CEO doesn't abuse of it)
I am also a socialist because I live in a democratic country, where this is the predominant political view (unfortunately, there are also certain capitalist politicians) Of course that it has it's own imperfections, but at least it keeps people from falling into misery.
Also, I am not a Nazi or something like that. Nazi's had a very different way of working, instead of offering benefits to everyone, they only gave certain benefits to themselves. BIG difference. And last but not least, socialism and communism are way different from each other, they are NOT the same thing. And no I don't support Chavez either.
I know that this is very controversial, and that socialism is not well seen by many Americans (money has lots o' power over people) but this is MY stamp, and therefore MY opinion.
If you do not support this, you can always simply ignore it and go comment in another stamp, however, if you leave a nice, mature comment expressing your opinion, I will respect it and your comment will not be hidden. Flaming/trolling comments will be answered with a
and ignored. If I find it very offensive to my personal beliefs, your comment may get hidden and you blocked.
If too many people start flaming and trolling, or an unfriendly discussion begins, I will simply disable comments to avoid a further problem. If then, people start flaming against this in my profile page, I will simply block you. No second chances.
I hope you understood.

One last thing: This may sound offensive, but I think that when people say that the USA is a free country, they are talking about capitalism (business CEO's can do whatever the hell comes into their minds)
