The only thing social security, and other welfare programs PROMOTE.

The united states going bankrupt.

Open borders and socialism??? Do the idiots not realize that either one of these two spell the death of America? Literally. With no borders, we are Mexico. Without capitalism, we are Russia.


Russia allows capitalism.

In fact, I believe there are more billionaires in Russia than anywhere else in the world.

Let me blunt then.

You want socialism because you want free stuff someone else has to pay for.

Our government is corrupt. Socialism would make us a corrupt socialist country.


We will never agree, we will never see eye-to-eye on any of this. You will never change my mind, I will never change yours.


Have a nice day.

Working fine?

What part of the $21 trillion debt did you miss?

The biggest creation of that debt is that fabulous socialism.



You're blaming Socialism for Corruption in Government. Corruption has been in government since the inception of governments.

Socialism doesn't cause deficits. Spending more than you earn causes deficits. Capitalism/Socialism you will still be in debt if your elected leaders are corrupt, greedy and allowed to overspend.

Can you educate me, please? I was told my whole life Russia is communist and is the enemy of capitalism. I thought that’s why they were allied with China

Incorrect. I want certain aspects of our economy to be socialized because it is the right thing to do.

You just think I want free stuff because you have listened to years of propaganda.



Our government is corrupt. Socialism would make us a corrupt socialist country.


Ok. What's your point? Again, you show that corruption can happen, socialism or not.



We will never agree, we will never see eye-to-eye on any of this. You will never change my mind, I will never change yours. Have a nice day.


I do not want to change your mind. I want you to be informed. You can come to your own conclusions, but at least inform yourself.

As of now, it appears you are ignorant and just spit silly rhetoric.

Clearly didn't pay attention to both Europe, and Venezuela.

It's not my job to clean up the mess that has been made after years of propaganda and ignorance.

If you are interested, there is plenty of info out there.

Like your post, but I want to go one further.

Socialism stops the individual from failing . If one cannot fail, one cannot really secede...one can only exist(for a lack of a better word)


Socialism guarantees equal failure.

Including every excuse known throughout the Centuries.

That’s what I thought. You can argue with cowboy because you know you can’t change his mind.
You meet someone willing to hear your “truth” and you got nothing.

You ask for something that is quite complex. It's not as simple as a post or two.

You have to educate yourself on the matter and I get the feeling that you really are not interested in changing your mind.

You're just being dishonest and asking for something that cannot be given in a simple response.

The truth is Putin is a billionaire oligarch.

And Russia should be classified as a crony capitalist mob state.

You underestimate your fellow citizens intelligence.

Yes. If you are not informed on the things you speak of, you are being ignorant on purpose.

If the "U"SA only had a left! Or an Antifa!

All you have is a bunch of your political correct SJW´s, that the rightwingers describe as left.

The left of the "U"SA is only what "U"S americnas think would be a left, the plastic version of a left.

But hey, who needs evil commies, libtards, a left if there are so many neonazis and rightwingers, racists that describe everything that is not far right as left?

The righwingers would get problems with a real left you don´t have but need more than anything else.
Everything is better than a rightwinger nation, even the russia controlled GDR was better for the people than Nazi-Germany!

You guys in the "U"SA need education, you need to learn what a real left is, because you only know the toy version.
Facts, not a myth.

And not an attack, just saying how it is, from the view of people that don´t live in the "U"SA.

And there's the disconnect. Those on the Right have an individualist paradigm. Those on the the Left have a collectivist paradigm.

I've never met anyone whose reasoning for wanting universal healthcare is because they want free healthcare. It's always because it would be more beneficial to society. Those on the Right can't understand this rationale however because it doesn't fit their paradigm.

F**K ignorant US-Americans. You have literally no idea about the world!

Europe a socialist continent? You do not even know the meaning of socialism.
Please, leave Europe out of this. You have enough problems on your own.
