Certainly nobody wants to see Stalin style rule.  It is one of the reasons we are fighting against Trump so hard as he is trying to implement state support of farmers who should be allowed to go bankrupt after losing the Chinese markets.  State supported industries are a very bad idea.

The biggest problem with the Trump party, since the Republican party died out years ago, is that they moved SO far to the right, anything to their left, they deem either socialist, or communist.

@jimc91  - yes I know my history - I also know that for the last century, the GOP has been a criminal conspiracy dedicated to removing rights from individual American citizens and increasing the power of feloniously dishonest oligarchic groups.

 

One has to make a choice about whether to support or to oppose GOP criminals...

Olderscout:  Why does it not surprise me jimc would pretend the social principles of the Democratic Party originated with Joseph Stalin?

 

 

 

Because if Stalin uttered the words "progressive and democratic" he must have been talking about the American Democratic party in 2019. Smiley Happy

@Olderscout66  - I believe that China knows a lot more about us than our government cares to admit. China understood that it had to exploit the economy, something Soviet Russia wanted to do. American businesses dove in headlong, all in the name of higher profits. ( I worked for such a company in the early 00's ). Now they complain about stolen property rights and having their technology appropriated, but they willingly turned over a lot of their work in order to have the products manufactured there in the first place. The Chinese also were privy to certain business plans and business models, and quickly caught on to everything else. They are very good at "customer service" and they know how to use it to get what they want.

Sad fact is Progressives seek to make America more truely Christ-like while the Regressives of the GOP seek the same enslavement of workers achieved by Stalin under the guise of Communism, only GOPers hide their true intentions beneath a thin veneer of unregulated Capitalism.

 

How is it GOPerBase can claim they are anti-Communist when THEY legislated huge Government subsities for American Companies to send millions of good jobs to commie slaves in Asia?

 

How can even the dimmest Regressive ignore the FACT Red China has become a Super Power, militarily and economically, using the technology our Corporate Oligarchs GAVE THEM in the name of greater wealth for the Oligarchs and lower wages and wealth for everyone else?
