From what I've seen, all that happened is your country swapped one dictator, who took all the goodies for himself and his friends, for another dictator, who took the means of producing those goodies for himself and his friends. Sorry, but I am going to disagree with you completely. that was not the case. at all. yes we did have a dictator in Basista, but we change a dictator for a different type of political system called communism. I do hope that you understand the difference.

 

Some people think wanting to make our country better means we don't love it. But the ones who REALLY hate America are the ones who hate AMERICANS, who happen to be non-white and non-rich. those people call themselves "Conservatives" but all they want to "conserve" is Rich White Domination of America. The only way they can hold back the future is to work as fast as they can to turn the bottom 90% into "wage slaves" who cannot afford to dislodge the Corporate Oligarchy and restore the Freedom their parents had back before Reagan when the profits from their labor showed up in their paychecks.


So Scout, the only people that understand ethnic minorities and racism  are the Democrats? please!!!!!  I wish it was that easy. This country has been a racist country for over 200 years, and to date, you have not been able to resolve this issue.

I have said this before and will say it again. you will never ever understand how racist this country is, until  this country stops differentiating people by their race and national origin. It is a disgrace that in this date and age. there are such things as African Americans, Jewish Americans, Cuban Americans,Asian American and so on and on  and on. and don't understand that  alone that differentiation will not allow this country to overcome their racism  If you are born in this country you are an AMERICAN,  period.

My daughter Ashley, has been to Sweden 6x . She just loves it there. I wasn't to happy about seeing her on a mountain on New Year's Eve. But, she came back in one piece.

I do, in amounts that make itemizing a good deal come tax time. But my meger personal resources are not adequate for the task, so I use my vote to do what citizens of every other Democracy have already done - arrange for We the People to work together through our Government to satisfy the needs of the Least of those among us.

 

Problem is Republicans keep Gerrymandering and voter suppressing their way into power, and instead redistribute what the middle class has into the pockets of the Uberrich, calling it "tax cuts" and claiming someday it will benefit the bottom 99%.

Good question. Usually, it is the Republican aristocracy.

Based on the content of their posts, IMHO our Regressives need to pack their bags for Somila as that is the place with the kind of Government they strongly support and want to bring here.

 

Progressives love America but we love the PEOPLE of America more, so they see what COULD BE and want to give it to the people we love.

It’s terrible to live that way, isn’t it? How can they not prefer to live in a trump authoritarian state, with sky high costs and a system of winners and losers?

trump, his friends and repubs have set in place a “dracula” society... they need live bodies that they can suck dry, over and over and over!
