Obama started a big swing to the left, then Trump followed with a huge swing to the right, and it looks like the next swing will be a swing towards "Democratic" socialism (as we saw with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defeat of Congressman Joe Crowley at the end of June).

Thoughts?

I wouldn't use Venezuela as the prototype for Democratic socialism!

As a Venezuelan, I would ask why you wouldn't.

Chavez was democractically elected and began implementing social programs to help the poor, who then became his loyal voting bloc. Even when a half-witted bus driver was named as his successor, they voted for him.

Keep in mind, people who support democratic socialism point to Norway as an example, but Norway rejects the term.
