If you're not a math person, that's 57X as large. Shall we talk population as well?
Now, the original meaning of the "socialism" is that workers own the means of production, and is sometimes used to describe a country such as the USSR or Cuba. However, socialism also means things like publicly owned health care, or generous welfare systems, or other things such as you might find in a country like Sweden. Going back to Wikipedia:
"Socialists disagree about the degree to which social control or regulation of the economy is necessary, how far society should intervene and whether government, particularly existing government, is the correct vehicle for change."
So yeah, I'm pretty comfortable calling Bernie Sanders a socialist, and I doubt he would disagree with me. It's not meant as an insult, merely a statement of fact.
That all being said, I won't argue too much with you over this. I'm assuming most of the people here know what you mean when you call Bernie a "socialist," and I think your argument has merit to it. I just think that we as a society need to more careful about our use of that word, and make sure everyone understands what it means in the context that Bernie uses it in.
