Socialism in the U.S. is growing fast.
That's not a critique of the government. Membership in the Democratic Socialists of America has tripled in the past year, the Los Angeles Times reports. It now boasts more than 19,000 members, a record for the 35-year-old organization.
That's certainly far smaller than the major political parties and even other grassroots groups. But it's the biggest openly socialist group in America in decades.
