What ever happened to working together to compromise on both sides of the aisle ?instead all I see nowadays is outrageous fake , misleading and predominantly Communist/Socialist narrative being portrayed in the MSM &also being push in the US education system with parents completely unawares!
What happened to the Capitalist ideals that created this Country? I believe we are unaware that the US institutions that held those believe s are under sever and open attack soft targets aka w/o bloodshed attacking the very ideals and traits that espouse a Capitalist mindset.
Your thoughts ATS? Cheers!

First, there are differences between Socialism and Communism, second, if you think that the Democrats are not the same Capitalist scum that the rightist are... you are believing lies, even Bernie Sanders who is a "Social-Democrat" is basically Capitalism with socialised healthcare

Which is precisely why you see so much support for Trump on ATS. The silent majority has come to this conclusion even before he declares his presidential run.

Make a list please of exactly which democrats are pushing a communist/socialist narrative. Maybe Bernie, but his is not a democrat, he is an independent.

Point to us all, which democrats are not deeply in bed with the capitlalist system, which democrats have not relieved much of their political money and their personal fortunes from their success and promotion of the capitalist system.

Maybe what you see as communist/socialism is only neo-liberalism. This is just as hard core capitalist as other capitalist forms but with a more liberal social agenda, believing that capitalism needs to dominate any and all cultural changes within all social structures.

so you don't think conservatives destroyed the 4th by bringing in the Patriot act, surveillance, allowing corporate lobby power to destroy competition?

Please. The divide and conquer scheme is working great. Just look at the op.

Baaaa Loney. California is liberal yes, but the economic strength of that state is solidly grounded in capitalist philosophy. How do all those big tech firms get so filthy rich, by being socialist? Hell no. They are so successful because the generate huge profits for the owners and stock holders of their corporations. Those companies all borrow and deal with the big banks which communism would not. They all play the stock market which is definitely not socialist.

Cali is 14 percent of the entire US GDP.

It's the 5th largest economy in the world. Larger than the UK.

California is not socialists

Seriously, does anyone actually know what that word means, or do you use just as pejorative out of willful ignorance? Brown a socialist? Ha laughable

So it's better that the conservatives pretend and waive their arms around on TV but do the same thing, perhaps more towards crony corporatism?

It is the Duty of Every Patriotic American to Fight such an Injustice coming from Rabble-Rousers and Anarchists . Freedom is the Greatest Force in the Universe , and not to Taken Lightly . If it Comes to it , Conflict will become Inevitable ....

Ok let's talk about the ideals and traits that founded this Nation vs the ideals and traits we see today aka under the title liberal .... Dems calling for impeachment? Students making demands from colleges , elected government calling for open borders and creating sanctuary City s? Fully undermining US enacted Laws? So you don't think the US is under a continuous soft attack from liberalism/socialism/communism?

If you go back to the foundations of the US it was more socialist than capitalist. Capitalism was the just the economic system that took a grip after the dust settled.
But the US has always been a sort of 'open door' to immigrants. And there has always been people pushing kicking out 'non Americans'. A good movie that portrays this is Gangs of New York, it's rather comical how much America hasn't changed.

But let's not talk about the war on drugs, the Iraq war, corporatism, unlimited campaign funding, the surveillance laws, etc..

The traits that founded the nation are classical liberal from the enlightenment era. The closest person like that is probably Rand Paul who his own party think is a radical. His own father was even more so and considered a quack by conservatives.

Guess what social media and the fact we don't have to live on wagon trains croswing the country and dying of basic infections probably has more to do with a change in behaviour than the blame you place on liberals.
