The left will never succeed. If they get everything they want, what will that entail?
A health care system like Canada's? What a joke.
An economy like France and Germany's welfare state, where unemployment is constantly in the double digits? What a joke.
A tax system like Sweden's? Heck, hypocritical Hollywood celebrities are establishing residence in Colorado to avoid high California state income taxes. What a joke.
America will never adopt the welfare state. There is too much reward to be had for working hard, having ambition and taking risks.

Well, if the Left were to succeed, they would be a failure, in that I agree.
After all socialism, since it in itself cannot produce wealth, requires the presence of capitalism on which it must feed as a parasite.
However, I am not so sanguine as you that they cannot one day be successful in taking control here by appealing, as they do now, to avarice, envy and greed. England, the home of the individual freedoms and traditions that are the foundation of America, has pretty well captitulated it seems.
'Course they do not have a constitution as we do, only a centuries old tradition. But I think our Constitution could lose its ability to protect us if we all choose to ignore it, as the Democrats are already doing.
