How Long Until USA Became a Complete Socialist?

Tidbits - This country is NOWHERE near or even close to becoming SOCIALIST or COMMUNIST. What we are moving toward is FASCIST. What we already are is Neo-Fascist Plutocratic Corporate Surveillance State.
I think you're exaggerating but I do consider our government a plutocracy. It would be impossible for a normal person to ascend to any position of note in the is government. One may be able to become a representative but I don't think they would last long. Phone Post 3.0
