LOL-  Slight reduction in spending dosen`t equal a balance budget -Remember Obama doubled the national debt from 10 trillion to 20 trillion.

I remember many of the Cons here insisting Obama was a "socialist".  Too funny.  As rker say's, many are strongly ill-informed

Kind of amazing how much your argument sounds like it came from North Korea though. So it seems  the liberals  prefer life in North Korea than Conservatives. For example -OAC wants us all to travel by train rather than gas cars and planes. So like Kin Jung Un we will take 3 days to travel by train between New York and  California and forget about going to Hawaii.

Redistribution of wealth never works with socialism, and the liberal radicals in Congress will bankrupt the country.  LOL!  The Libs are who have reduced debt AND, when was the last time Conservatives have had a balanced budget???

 

Imagine what will happen with their insane climate change plans-No plane travel,no gas fuel car travel(No fossil fuel at all in 12 years)  Just imagine......bigly new industries.....

 

Guess we will all have to travel by train to Canada to catch a plane to Europe or Hawaii and the same when we return.  Just more fear-mongering......just like the faux caravan hoax....we read endlessly hear.  Any germs yet????

There is no country in the world where socialism has actally (sic) worked .  LMAO!!!  Is that a fact or just your biased opinion?  If it's a FACT, please provide an actual verifiable reference.  In fact, searching the net, the US isn't even in the top 10 of "best" of most lists....

 

Capitalism is what has made this country great .....a Conservatives "opinion".  and other countries want to emulate. LOL....not really.....

 

2020 election will be Capitalism versus Socialism and this is the fight the Republicans want to have.  Of course they do.....they LOVE the fear-mongering.....it's all they have.

@ChasKy53 Nicely put. I still say our "capitalism" has become "crony capitalism", which, imo, appears to be the welfare system to the rich!--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Socialism is trickle up poverty by confiscating the wealth of the wealthy. Remember ,nobody ever got a job from a poor person.

Rker wrote-It is also well known that Capitalism and Communism  do not work.  they both have been failures for a very long time. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Quite the contrary- Capitalism is what made America great for almost 200 years and the reason Russia chucked Communism and has been moving more and more toward Capitalism since Reagan (and even China has been moving toward capitalism). Socialism is more what Cuba has and who in our country wants to live like that?

The first thing that many in this message board need to do is have a strong knowledge of what is Socialism and then come back and discussed this subject. Otherwise they put foot in  mouth in a very strong way.

Yes yes, we have all heard the arguments that the common man is doing so well under the current system and should be glad for every crumb granted by the ruling classes.  

 

Would you like to see a straight up comparison of American heath care costs and outcomes with Canada and the Nordic Countries?  Retirement security? How about economic mobility and prosperity?  Call me when the American aristocracy can meet those numbers, much less exceed them.
