You don't have to explain Democratic Socialism to me... It's an elementary concept. I am baffled by the fact that you have no idea about my grasp of this concept as shown by my previous comment. I am a firm believer in not having a government entitled safety net or welfare. Anyone can guarantee themselves a life worth living. They just have to get off their asses. You are not educated enough on this subject to argue it with me seeing as you probably have not even read about Marx or his ideal communism, so just stop. Btw its called new money. Read the Great Gatsby motherfucker. Opportunity is available to anyone.

Opportunity is not available to anyone. I know next to everything about Marx' philosophy. I know of several people that didn't have time for school, because they had to work two jobs to get enough money to provide for their family. A system where the people, not the rich, are in charge is better*. It is easier to work your way up in Democratic Socialism. However, if you have a start capital and something to fall back on, you can get higher, faster in the US. You don't have to listen to me, you just have to watch the results. Democratic Socialism is the system that has been the 2nd most beneficial for the common man in history, so far. 3rd being more capitalistic.
We have to take our start boost into consideration. Because of our oil, I like to point to Sweden instead of Norway. They use basically the same system, but don't have the same amount of money.

Your problem is that you are comparing the idea of pure practiced "prefect" socialism to impure imperfect capitalism that is currently being practiced. If you know anything about socialism and world history, you would know that all socialist empires prosper for a short amount of time and then fail miserably.

Democratic Socialism is not Socialism, or Communism. I'm comparing the current systems. Capitalism suck. Communism suck. Socialism suck. Every ism suck. Both the US and Scandinavia have a mixture of different ideologies even though we are slightly more red. Socialism may not work, but you know as well as I that pure capitalism may be what works the least.
The only country that doesn't use capitalism to a big degree is North Korea. Even China, who are communistic, are practically capitalists. Democratic Socialism is a term often used concerning a system where a capitalistic system are used with high taxes as well.

Just mathematically speaking, it's much more efficient. The system is made so everyone will move to a higher class. This doesn't punish the rich or the industry one bit. However, it makes it expensive for tourists when they travel here, as the prices on everything are quite high. People and businesses also get some of what they tax back, depending on a lot of stuff.
There are several parties fighting for lower taxes (the one fighting for the lowest, of the bigger parties, happens to be the same party that got founded to fight for lower alcohol and tobacco prices, so yeah). Most of the people who vote for those parties doesn't realize that the prices in the stores will rise according to the tax reductions, and ultimately make the value of NOK drop a little. Høyre (one of the parties|translates to right, as in opposite of left) is also behind the only time I've seen open corruption here.
I want to add that this high taxes would not be a good option for the States, as of now. I have several ideas that could build up to this, but I would have to get much power and experts for any of it to work. The only action that could easily, and without much planning, improve the US' economy would be to cut the military budget.
