Socialism is achievable in the US. And don't tell me it can't be done.

If by failed nation you mean the greatest nation with the best ideas, people, businesses, policies, social reform, education, cuisine and moral standards then I guess yea your right.


LOL.

Clearly someone has drunk the whole bottle of Kool Aid.

Those of us who live in REALITY know none of that is even remotely true.

Then prove it. Sources. Evidence. That's what I thought. You cant prove it because everything I said is right.

My source: My eyes, ears and brain.

YOU are the one making the claims, YOU are the one required to produce evidence. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof.

I shall await your evidence with baited breath.......

I wondered if your post was a Poe then noticed you said cuisine and realised it had to be.

Well played sir.

Well I'm still waiting for his evidence. As none has been posted one must assume that he was either deliberately trolling or just plain delusional.

If you are using Libya as a bright star to prove a point, then you are on thin ice at best.

Try not to believe the propaganda. Gadhafi was also a dictator who repressed his own people and thought nothing of hanging people who he did not like. Research the "Green Terror" to balance the rosy view that Gadhafi was a big, pink fluffy bunny. Gadhafi fell because he was out to violently crush dissent.

I think you could make an argument the USA is pretty nearly socialist already. Those who work are taxed heavily to provide for those who don't work. About 90 million people in the USA that don't work yet can survive quite comfortably compared to most countries.

Everyone works for everyone. Everyone pays to everyone. Everyone earns from everyone. There is no contradiction. I scratch your back. You scratch mine. I teach you to read. You mow my lawn. No money involved.

I don't want the government to decide how to spend my money.

If you think the government can spend your money better than you, great. Don't suggest the rest of are like you, please.

So you want the U.S. government to take over all industry in the U.S. then. General Motors, the state coorporation. AT&T, the state company. State owned McDonalds; state owned Apple. Amazon.gov.

Newsflash, no kidding.

I'd prefer they not also spend my take home money as well that i can use to decide if i want to build a deck, buy a new car, or go on vacation with.

Did you seriously not understand that?

That's probably the most retarded and ass backwards piece of brainwashing propaganda I've ever seen.

Thanks for that.

Hardly.

The only propaganda in this thread is pushing socialism as the cure to societal ills.

It's true.

Capitalism allows everyone a shot at making something of themselves. I grew up in poverty, but worked two jobs to better myself, and now live a good life. I'm sure many of you socialists think exactly that way.

Why is it a bad thing hard working individuals should reap the fruits of their labor?
