First let me say that I was delighted to see a Democrat like Jim Webb in last night's Democratic debate. I think if he were to be the Democratic candidate I could vote for him depending on who was on the other side of the aisle.

However, the other candidates were absolutely loony toons crazy. I couldn't believe the blatant attacks on Capitalism and America.

Now, don't get me wrong. I think that there is plenty wrong with America, but I also don't believe that the fundamental system is broken. Anyway, it is scary how mainstream these folks are becoming. They are a threat to the very fabric of the country I love.

So do you agree with the article premise? Are THESE the politicians we deserve?

I hope not.


It’s comforting to project all our anger onto politicians. Lord knows, they deserve a fair amount of it. However, the difficult reality is this: America’s biggest problem is its citizens, not its politicians. Indeed, its politicians are a symptom, a reflection, of its people. They may manipulate and coerce and propagandize, but when it comes down to it, in a democratic system, if a bunch of lunatics and scoundrels are in power it’s because the people chose to put them there. The sickness originates, then, with the people. And the people’s sickness is rooted in the soul.

My mind kept going back to this fact last night as I watched the Democrat debate on CNN. To be honest, I’m not totally sure why I watched it. Clearly, a person must have some serious psychological issues if they elect to spend an evening with Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. It’s like choosing to be mentally water boarded for two and a half hours. Only a troubled man would willingly subject himself to such torment. I’ll be making an appointment with a therapist later today.


and more


With the frazzled Muppet from Vermont leading the way, all of the candidates (except Jim Webb, who apparently stumbled into the wrong debate) spent the first several minutes complaining about “income inequality.” This was a theme they’d all return to incessantly throughout the evening, because there’s nothing more exhilarating than listening to old rich white people complain about old rich white people. Bernie Sanders lamented again and again that the “middle class is collapsing,” but never expressed any interest in seeing us poor middle class folk move up and out of the middle class. For Sanders and the rest of them, the “middle class” should be all we peons aspire to. Success and wealth ought to be solely possessed by the left wing ruling class. Wealth is evil, you see, so that’s why we should let our great and generous protectors carry the burden.

Middle Class! Inequality! Greed! Middle Class! Inequality! Greed! I can’t really blame them for shouting socialist catchwords all night. This is what their voters desire. They don’t desire capitalism, because capitalism means opportunity and freedom, and opportunity and freedom mean hard work. Economic freedom is so unpopular among liberals that Bernie Sanders openly disavowed it to the sound of roaring applause. Clinton was hesitant (for now) to fully label herself a socialist, so instead she said she’s a sorta-capitalist who thinks “capitalism has to be saved from itself.” This is another way of calling American people children who need to be rescued by benevolent bureaucrats, but that’s OK because Democrat voters fervently wish to be treated like children. They want their own failures and struggles in life to be the fault of “the rich” and they want a president who will magically make it better.

It’s a bit awkward, of course, because they already voted for a guy who promised to do just that, yet the “income inequality” has only gotten worse. This, as Hillary asserted several times, is still the fault of the Republicans. Even when we had a Democrat president and a Democrat Congress, all of our economic woes could be laid at the feet of Republicans and “the rich.” But not every “the rich.” Just “the rich” who aren’t Democrat politicians, or Democrat donors like Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan Chase, or union leaders, or Planned Parenthood executives, or Hollywood liberals, or university administrators, or any other group comprised mainly of wealthy left wingers.

Everything they are clammoring for was tried in Venezuela.

Heck, hollywood is in love with Chavez's policies.

Google Venezuela and what is going on there economically and socially.

If you want a nearly pure socialist state like Venezuela: vote for Hillary

If you want a more socialist country than Venezuela: vote for Sanders

Make Hollywood proud of their support of Chavez and how he has
turned Venezuela into a nearly pure socialist country. Vote Democratic.

Venezuela is the very best example out there of a country run
solely on socialist policies.

Mencken agrees.



When a candidate for public office faces the voters he does not face men of sense; he faces a mob of men whose chief distinguishing mark is the fact that they are quite incapable of weighing ideas, or even of comprehending any save the most elemental — men whose whole thinking is done in terms of emotion, and whose dominant emotion is dread of what they cannot understand. So confronted, the candidate must either bark with the pack or be lost... All the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically, the most devious and mediocre — the man who can most adeptly disperse the notion that his mind is a virtual vacuum. The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron. Baltimore Sun (26 July 1920)

Hey, Charlie? Is this like those comments where people who lean left praise someone like Kasich for sounding "almost reasonable?"

You are so right
Webb looked like something out of Disney's animatronic studio,
only a little less animated.

It is a pendulum. The farther it swings one way the farther it swings back.

This is peanuts to what is coming if something is not done about gross income equality that permeates every facet of living in the country.

How much further left will it swing before it swings back? We've gone quite a ways already under Obama.

Venezuela has been hailed in the press as a country
that has nearly eliminated income inequality.

Please read up on the current state of this socialist utopia
who has nearly eliminated income inequality.

Hollywood loves Chavez and Venezuela:
read it here: www.newsmax.com...
Prominent Democrats " Sean Penn,Kevin Spacey, Danny Glover, Oliver Stone, Harry Belafonte, Naomi Campbell, and Princeton University Professor Cornel West all adore Chavez and his policies."

Then vote for Sanders or Hillary whose dream is to make
the US economy free from income inequality just as
Venezuela has done.

I didn't even know webb was running for president, you hear so little about the democratic candidates. Of course the republican candidates so much saner now, don't they????

Probably is, Kets...


Just something that became apparent as the debate went on.

For those of you too lazy to google Venezuela:

An article on how successful Venezuela has been at eliminating income inequality
oxfamblogs.org...

How well socialism is going in Venezuela:
thesaker.is...
hotair.com...

Here are the joys of living in a socialist utopia that has eliminated income inequality
www.reuters.com...
www.cnn.com...
www.businessinsider.com...


Like what you read?
Think Sanders is spot on in bringing this to the US,
Then vote for Sanders or Hillary,
since the US is so much larger than Venezuela,
the success seen in the articles will be as proportionately large.

Go Democrats!
Go Socialists!

Read the articles and use them to back up
all the reasons we should vote for Sanders and Hillary,

because their policies
(the policies Sanders and Hillary are wanting to enact)
are the policies that made Venezuela what it is today!

What does Christianity mean today? National Socialism is a religion. All we lack is a religious genius capable of uprooting outmoded religious practices and putting new ones in their place. We lack traditions and ritual. One day soon National Socialism will be the religion of all Germans. My Party is my church, and I believe I serve the Lord best if I do his will, and liberate my oppressed people from the fetters of slavery. That is my gospel.”Joseph Goebbels


I pass on socialism.

Politics is like football, imho.

Everyone has a favorite team. Everyone yells at the tv on Sundays trying to convince the image that running up the middle when your 3rd and 10 is a bad idea. And like politics, the tv image doesn't ever listen. And like football, life continues on Monday morning.

I used to vote. I also used to throw things at the tv when I saw a stupid play.

Both were just meaningless gestures. On one, I got my tv wet with spilled beer, on the other, I wasted an hour voting.

Democrats are idiots. Republicans are idiots.

And we're all idiots who keep voting for idiots to represent us.

imho.

Oh but there were wars in the Star Trek Universe.

Lot's of them.

Hell the commies were 'awesome' that would be the 'federation of planets'. Call them the Democrats.

And the bad guys were the Klingons, and the Ferengi, call them guys the 'republicans capitalists'. That believed in personal responsibility, etc.
