Re: I wonder if anyone else

that's about as hateful a comment as anybody could make, I noticed you put Christians separate from "the compassionate folks", another hateful comment regarding Christians who spend their money helping the poor and downtroden rather than creating them as socialism does.

Wrong! Socialism helps the less fortunate that are left impoverished by the capitalist world.

Re: I wonder if anyone else

I think right now, we have 2 major political parties, both of whom put politics, pandering to various factions, and campaigning for the next elections above the common good.  As long as people who follow the same old party politics, we are going to get more of the same.

 

Did anyone notice the reactions to Brat winning the primary?   It seems that both Dems and Repubs are up in arms about it.   My guess to why, is not so much his stances on things, as it is he is not part of the 'establishment'.

I mean, seriously, a professor of economics, running for office at a time when half of Congress can't seem to figure out that you go backwards when you make $3 and spend $4, should be someone that everyone takes a good look at, before they condemn him.

Re: Good post

 I'm extremely weary of all the infighting, but logic is telling me that the gap between the two parties is just way to big. Although I wasn't alive at the time I had a college professor tell me one time that the Nixon and Kennedy debates were incredibly boring because they actually agreed with eachother on so many things,and would publicly admit it! That just isn't the case now. Would the democrat party of 1960 have anything to do with Obamacare, would the southern Democrat party have anything to do with a black candidate, no probably not, and of course there are repig examples too I'm just using generalities there you get the point. My opinion the country you and I for the most part grew up in is gone, could it be for the better sure it could, do I think it's gonna be better, no I don't.

Re: I wonder if anyone else

That is why socialism has never really been tried. Both socialism and capitalism are plagued with the influence of money and power.

 

 

I don't advocate socialism or communism but I don't think the lack of profit should deny humanity the right to basic human rights. As long as profiteering is the primary motive we will have people of need sorely lacking. Raising wages is not  a gift. It is paying what something is worth.

 

Just because there is no or littl profit to providing health care to the impoverished, that does not mean they should be denied health care. Single payer merely gives everyone that same basic right to health care. Germany is not socialist. Canada is not socialist. Britian is not socialsts. They are all healthy capitalistic governments with social concerns for theiir society.

 

Educating people is to americas advantage for both employers and employees. If there is no option to finance your education you will remain uneducated. Congress and the people decided it was in the best interest of our government and it's people to facilitate student loans. Banks will not or cannot lend education funds with out adequate collateral which most youthful students do not have. Assets.

 

So our congress and the people decided that government guarantees would facilitate advanced for large numbers of our youth. Thus thousands have been provided the opportunity to higher education that would not have happened without the gov't intervention.

 

Thus you ought to give up the notion that all government is bad. I don't know why people think government should be smaller when the population is at an all time high. The truth is not neveryone can pay less. We have to all share in the responsibility. That is those of us with the income to support it. Everytime we give one group or another a tax incentive to change their behavior, we add to our own burden of responsibility

 

Government is not free and those with the income need to share in the expense.

What we have going on now is nothing in comparison to what is to come.

How's the prepping going comrade? Got that bunker filled with guns yet? Make a video of yourself for future reference so the socialist aliens can see what could have been. Write your wisdom on stone and get some idiot like Moses to read them after the dust has settled.

Only those intellectuals will woo the day they let knowledge like yours be in the ashes of history. Praise The Lord and pass the sharp axe boy. It's back to work for us mere mortals.

When are gonna get sick of having your guts ripped out by me? You are like taking wheat from blind chooks.
