Re: Which Future?

Many countries in the world are already dealing  with this issue. They have provided living wages for their citizens. They provide social services like child care, elder care, health care, and retirement in an organized and cost effective manner.  The results have been a happier and healthier population. More robust economies and more economic mobility that in the United States. 

 

In short, the successful future is in social democracy, not socialism and certainly not the "give it all to the top 1%" America has ended up with.

You cannot have such a future by forcing women to bare children they do not want into families that cannot support them, which is the Republican Future.

 

An interesting approach. Shall we say that a woman pregnant with a child she cannot feed must abort the child?

 

Again the thinking of Sanger seems to come up.

In short, they agree with the Democratic Party on these issues, and that bodes well for our collective future. No Billionaires will go hungry, shiver in the cold, remain uneducated or lose everything when a child gets sick AND NEITHER WILL ANYONE ELSE.


You may well be right. The study and recommendations of the Frankfurt School carried out by the political activism of the Progressive Movement have instilled Marxism into the minds of the youth. It is obviously was not an overnight event. But I have always admired their patience and persistence. I remember back in the sixties observing how they were running for the School Board, County Office, all local stuff while the crazy Conservatives were aiming for the "big" offices. The wisdom of their strategy is now being seen.

 

Updated, a few like Warren and Sanders came out of the closet but it took the brash AOC to really light the fire. Right now, her ideas are impractical but, if you can get emotions fired up, practicality is not needed. Add to that the older people who see themselves as "victims of the system" as a way to deal with their failure, there well could be a package that tilts the scales.


Back in the fifties and sixties, eh?

 

That was back when dingbat Robert Welch felt that Eisenhower was controlled by communists, Fred Koch said that the black man featured in the communist plot to take over America, "Tailgunner" Joe McCarthy, running on his usual mix of alcohol and morphine, showed the nation what an evil and deranged crackpot he was, and Barry Goldwater, mistaking his hallucinations for reality, went off on an extreme right wingnut tangent that the majority of the nation's citizens roundly rejected...

 

So we're expected to believe that nutty paranoia from deranged anti-commie Birchers and extreme right fringe republicans and conservatives about the mythical fairy tale marxist threat?

LOL- ROTFLMAO...

 

Don't forget that rock and roll is part of a plot by Satan and Communists to destroy the USA by leading the youth of America to become witches and watch pornography...

 

And - if - as fundamentalists claim - the nation should be governed by Biblifcal standards - shouldn't members of Congress be thinking about stoning trump to death for his adultery?

 

Love that nutty living in a previous century conservative whack-jobbery...

 

Well - at least we got some slapstick comic relief out of the grotesque and laughable conservative wanna-be fascist dictator nonsense...

@controlled: True, that is what they are creating, but at the same time they remove the possibility that medical intervention is available to the poor.

Reject the Republican Future of Feudal Serfdom

 

Embrace the Democratic Future of Social Justice.

Sounds like the thinking of the PP founder Sanger (the eugenicist).

My bumper sticker contains an approprtiate sentiment...

 

"Spay or neuter your conservative"
