Do conservatives really believe that Socialism (like Venezuela) is the same as European "Socialism" (think, "Nordic Model")?
Conservatives keep calling liberals/democrats "socialists" and then bring up Venezuela to show that Socialism doesn't work.
Yet the policies Democrats propose are modeled on advanced Western economies in Europe which are capitalist mixed economies, with the Nordic Model being particularly popular.
So why do conservatives keep conflating the two?
