Oh! I see you graduated from one of those new Common Core schools. How did that math program work out for you? I see you showed your work at least, so you get points unlike those horrible children who will simply tell it's 4. They get nothing.

So your personal situation reflects the state of our entire country right now? Hardly. We live in a materialistic, self-absorbed, selfish society in America.



LOL you're a loon if you think that's only unique to America.




It has bred a business ethic and political system where personal gain is valued above the greater community. Look at the candidates we have in place, they're selfish and arrogant for the most part, taking money from billionaires and dancing to the tune they play for them.


Hmm who doesn't do that in Europe? Why don't we sit down and talk about FIFA?




It doesn't matter how much money YOU have saved up, other people aren't making enough money to save up to begin with today. Like I said, your situation does not reflect the current generation that is growing up in our country.


Then maybe the current generation should forget about liberal arts degrees? I've met plenty of people aged 21-25 who've graduated college and immediately started out with $60k a year jobs, so your points do not reflect the current generation either.

Oh but see? We should all be in unions. Then we can all go on strike like they do in Greece. Throw Molotov cocktails in protest because the government ran out of money to pay us.

And the socialist impulse to take what others have that you don't makes you just as greedy and materialistic ... such an irony that you are incapable of seeing it.

You and the rich look like dogs playing tug of war, but those of us who are the ones who end up paying for it all and just want out are the ones who suffer for your childish tantrums.

This may come as a shock to you but I don't support public sector unions...especially cops!! The FOP isn't a union....it's BS>

I think you're thinking 5th Element.

We should just skip to communism, I heard the average person in China is doing great. 20 cents an hour sounds really nice and eugenics. What's not to love?

I don't know why you people like so much the idea of one world government when clearly you need 2 so each half got an external enemy to prevent they killing each other internally (America needs a communist threat to function properly otherwise rep vs dem would sabotage each other to prove only the, can govern correctly, killing America in the process)

We will have only 1 government when we have an external enemy, aka aliens

If you want to make america great again you dont need the trump you need strong communist Russia

Sorry, but anything I work hard to build up and earn in my life ought to remain mine to dispose of after I die ... that includes giving it to my children if I desire.

If you abolish that, it goes to the government.

Do you want the government to end up owning ALL the land in the country? It's not like they sell it back.

I do want to thank everyone who participated. Even the ones that wanted to insult.

The People's Basement awaits us all. Some will go willingly, others kicking and screaming.

And please, scream loudly.

It amuses so many.

Go right ahead. In my system there's no money, and everyone gets a house. If one of your children decides to keep your house after you pass, they simply give up the house they were provided.


If you abolish that, it goes to the government.

Do you want the government to end up owning ALL the land in the country? It's not like they sell it back.


"Government" as we know it, can be changed. It has to change. I think getting rid of money is the first and most vital step.

I don't want your money.

I don't deserve your money.

I didn't earn your money.

I keep what I earned.

You keep what you earned.


If you're so against socialism, stop paying taxes.

Stop paying taxes then.


I wish I could.

The government has shown itself to be a poor steward with MY money.

But if they had everyone's money, then there'd be no issue!

So you're against what our founding fathers stood for? Against the Constitution? Because the Constitution and the founding fathers thought taxes to not only be necessary but essential to our countries foundation. You can't have a functioning country without taxes, you can't have a functioning society without people being taken care of.
