Yeah! I'm down with that big time! OP your talking some old cold war propaganda! Your in the 21st century and sh$ts gonna change. The people are risen.


Yeah, like things changed in Venezuela... a country in which a lot of people believed these very same lies Sanders, and others are spouting...

But hey, for the good of all Venezuelans must endure what they are enduring right?... What you, Sanders, and other socialists want is what happened to Venezuela to happen in the United States...

You do know that the socialism Sanders wants to implement is the same socialism that Chavez implemented in Venezuela in the 21st century right?...

The TRUTH about Sanders is he is lying his snip off.



. Between 2000 and 2011, U.S. aggregate net worth increased from $28.9 trillion to $40.2 trillion


www.census.gov...

Yeah people the aggregate net worth of Americans has significantly risen.

Even during the GW years.

I guess 40 trillion is 'poverty'.

Just for more snips and giggles.


House hold Assets at $83 trillion to $22 trillion in corporate assets.

a reply to: ElectricUniverse Yes Socialism is a threat to our survival as a nation. Socialism delivers Slavery. Surprised to see members on ATS who don't realize the implications of Col sanders in office.(free chicken with pot) A giant bureaucracy where there are no services and your liberty and property seized. Just look at what damage the socialist B.O. has done in the last 7 years. Be very careful what you wish for..

What are you referencing?

Anyway...
Household Wealth Is the Highest Ever. Probably Not Your Household’s, Though


Much of that growth was driven by stocks, which grew in value by $742 billion during the final quarter of last year. The value of residential real estate also rose by $356 billion.

The most recent solid data on this runs through 2013. As MONEY recently reported, an analysis by researchers at the University of Michigan last year found that the median wealth of a U.S. household, in inflation-adjusted dollars, dropped 36% from 2003 to 2013. In that same period, the richest 5% of households saw their median net worth increase by 12%.

In 2003, the wealthiest 5% of Americans had a net worth 13 times that of the median household. By 2013, that disparity had nearly doubled, with these households holding 24 times that of the median.

Consider a few historical quotes from the past:

"The goal of socialism is communism."
-Vladimir Lenin


"Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word, equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude."
-Alexis de Tocqueville


"Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery."
-Winston Churchill

“Socialism needs to pull down wealth; liberalism seeks to raise up poverty. Socialism would destroy private interests, Liberalism would preserve [them] ... by reconciling them with public right. Socialism would kill enterprise; Liberalism would rescue enterprise from the trammels of privilege and preference. Socialism assails the preeminence of the individual; Liberalism seeks ... to build up a minimum standard for the mass. Socialism exalts the rule; Liberalism exalts the man. Socialism attacks capitalism; Liberalism attacks monopoly.”
― Winston S. Churchill



“Political corruption, social greed, and Americanized quasi-socialism can ruin even the most wonderful places. California proved that.”
― Tiffany Madison


“State ownership! It leads only to absurd and monstrous conclusions; state ownership means state monopoly, concentrated in the hands of one party and its adherents, and that state brings only ruin and bankruptcy to all.”
― Benito Mussolini


“Socialism provides safety in numbers. And that’s OK, if you don’t mind trading your name—your identity and individualism—for a number.”
― Jarod Kintz, 99 Cents For Some Nonsense


BUT, BUT, BUT - I will agree with one of Bernie's points:

“I think it's wrong that only one percent of the people should own ninety percent of the country.”
― Sally Wentworth, Summer Fire


And friends you know that something is wrong here in America when an avowed Socialist may actually win the nomination of a major politicl party. Time for the Republicans to wake-up - This country does not want Socialism but many are also tired of hearing right wing Tea party dick heads as well. Whatever happened to rightr wing Democrats and Liberal Republicans






"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it"
-- George Santayana

Is love to live in this fairy tale land of 100% capitalism were I never have to pay taxes and there no government and everyone lives prosperous.

But this is the real world and it wont work anymore than communism works.



I would rather just pay my taxes to shut the poor up than wake up to a mob of those same poor dragging me out my house to put me a against a wall to shoot me and takeing all my stuff by force.

In other words better to just give them 20% of my stuff and being allowed to keep 80% than trying to keep 100% of my stuff and being killed for it.

Remember I am outnumbered 99 to 1.

Better to be 80% free and alive than 100% free and dead.

And please enlighten us as to how a socialist occupying the highest office in the land in a country that avowed to throw off such tyranny and be independently governed, is a good thing?

Why can't you see that socialism...and I don't care how 'cute' and 'innocent' you folks try to make it out to be, ALWAYS LEADS TO COMMUNISM!!!! ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS.

It may take years, but once the door is open....

I know right?

But im just being pragmatic.

History shows going to one extreme or the other pretty much ends badly for the hard working middle class like me.

Either way the poor mob ends up with my neck in a guillotine or me in front of a fireing squad.

I'd like to think I'm pragmatic in thought as well.

That being said, I'll be dead in the next 20 years. That's life, or the end if it, to be specific. I'm old.

So I don't have much to lose.

You may be lucky.

The future could be bright or very very bleak.

75% of people in the western would will likely find themselves unable to find jobs within the next 50-100 years.

So unless we find a way to give them "jobs" or feed them then society is heading for a catastrophe.

Thing is the food and resources will be there to feed and support them, they just wont have the jobs and/money to buy them.
Thats a recipe for revolution in the nasty Lenin sort of way.
Its one thing to suffer in povert and starve when there truely is a shortage but people dont tend to take it well when they are suffering when really the food and resources are there in abundance.

I just hope if you had kids you got them trained/educated in science /medicine / law/engineering /robotics /computer sciences otherwise they will likely find themselves unable to find employment and amoung those desperate masses.

Engineering, for the kids.

They'll be prepared.

The thing is, we used to look to ourselves when faced with problems, NOT run to government for solutions.

Jobs gone in the next 50 years?

We need entrepeneurs to create industries that will need and hire people.

So we need to support businesses, encourage businesses.

Not punish them.

No we shouldn't punish business.
Hell id lower or abolish corporation tax if I could.


But we need to look beyond our current economic model.

Our current economic model based around fiat currency may no WILL become obsolete.
All it will take is a breakthrough with fusion (which is going to happen within the next 5 years if you believe lockheed) or a push into space mineing and everything our current model is based around becomes useless.

So we need to start looking at new economic models. Now whether capitalism survives or gets stronger in the next generation of economics I have no idea. Im just a biologist not a sociologists
