The Left is obsessed with importing illegal immigrants who possess little skill or wealth and only further grow the gap between the rich and the poor. Then the Left has this eternal argument about how they have right to tax the top 1% or even rich successful people like millionaires. I think America needs a cooling off period to allow the illegals to assimilate into American culture. And that means stopping all immigration also known as pulling a FDR Who was a Democrat Trump on steroids.

Rush made an excellent point about immigration why would you bring your kids here to such a racist sexist misgyony Society such as America? Yes America has it Sins like slavery but at least American civilization never performed human sacrifice such as the ancient societies of Mexico. I mean just imagine if America had a cooling off period of just 10 years. We might actually be able to save hand out programs like Social Security.

It seems to me that the left is only interested in the votes of the illegals. Because if people truly wanted to experience the American dream he wouldn't be taxing the rich or even moderately upper-class citizens that America has already. The rich provide the jobs.

The better question is, why do many people on the right seem to worship them? They seem to think that because they have money, they also have all the answers to everything.

The left mostly is rich successful people and poor minorities who buy the media propaganda.

Everyone else wants the government out of their business.

Jealousy.

The left likes to whine about greed. They never talk about envy.

The only way they like rich successful people is when those people spread their wealth.

No one hates the rich and successful..

The left goes after those who make themselves rich and successful on the backs of those who they don't even pay enough to feed , cloth and house their employees...

Does the left hate hollywood, where everyone makes a decent wage??

What about google, tesla and Cisco, who are held up as proof you can do it the right way??


But when Walmart makes 16 billion in profits while paying the average employee 8$ an hour, and 8 an hour can't even pay for the worst apartment, the worst food and clothing and the worst transportation and phone . Then obviously their is a problem.

Should you be able to make a billion dollars a year off the work of 5 employees you pay 7.25$ an hour too???


How in the most modern country on the planet, can you work an adult for a full time work week, for less pay than that person needs just to make it back and forth to that job...


While tax dollars go to welfare to provide what their employer is not..

It's not worship.

Certain people see someone who is rich and aspire to be rich.

Other people see someone rich and want to take their money because they are not rich.

The reason you would bring your children here is that it is less sexist and such than there home country...

Obviously that would not mean that America isn't racist, sexist exc.. just that it was LESS than their 3rd world home.

That is both a logical fallacy you AND an over generalization.. both big debate no nos...

Why do people paint everything with such broad strokes?

Nope. Demand creates jobs. "Regular" people having money to spend creates jobs and businesses.

Yes because if we deregulate the rich and get rid of the min wage, businesses will just decide to forgo profits and pay people more out of the kindness of there little wall street hearts...


You only have 2 options.. trust big buisness to do the right thing even though they are beholden ONLY to profits...

Or expect the government to do the right thing, because at least they are beholden to us through the election process..

Had I wanted another opinion from you, I would have asked for one. Are you aware that most of the "red states" are the ones who use more public assistance such as food stamps, and aid to dependent children? Are you aware that Murdoch owns many many news outlets, including Fox? Do you think he's the one spreading the 'propaganda"?

Are you aware that the current President is filling his cabinets with billionaires, and wall street bigwigs?
How is that going to help you? You think because they have the elusive "money", that seems like such an "unobtainable" to you, that they must know everything? That they aren't sociopaths? That they "care" about what happens to the middle class, other than to make them underlings who work their butts off, to only make them richer?

Simple answer, the left doesn't hate rich people, and such a statement is absurd right wing, pro-elite propaganda.

The *real* left, not Democrats, are against exploitation by the oligarchy and generational wealthy, tax cuts for the rich, good schools for the rich and bad schools for the poor, stagnant real wages for lower and middle class since the 1980's (while the 1% continue to enjoy increasing income), etc.

It's about anti-exploitation and basically the uber rich syphoning off all of the economic dividends of the economy while lower and middle class have seen no growth in income since Reagan. Economic facts. Data proves it.

If you are for a very small percentage of the population getting virtually ALL of the profits and increased GDP, while no-one else sees any of it, there is something morally wrong with you.

If there is an abundance of jobs and a shortage of workers, wages will go up.

If the opposite is true, wages will go down.

Simple supply and demand.
