Crazy nut U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren has apparently gone off her rocker completely.

Now it seems she has come up with a proposal that would end up Nationalizing big businesses !!

It's called the "Accountable Capitalism Act" of all things !!

Yup, the Democrats are exposing their true colors this election season 💥😃💥

Liz will really be waving her arms and bobbing her head with this one 🤓



Elizabeth Warren’s Batty Plan to Nationalize . . . Everything

Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts has one-upped socialists Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: She proposes to nationalize every major business in the United States of America. If successful, it would constitute the largest seizure of private property in human history.

Warren’s proposal is dishonestly called the “Accountable Capitalism Act.” Accountable to whom? you might ask. That’s a reasonable question. The answer is — as it always is — accountable to politicians, who desire to put the assets and productivity of private businesses under political discipline for their own selfish ends. It is remarkable that people who are most keenly attuned to the self-interest of CEOs and shareholders and the ways in which that self-interest influences their decisions apparently believe that members of the House, senators, presidents, regulators, Cabinet secretaries, and agency chiefs somehow are liberated from self-interest when they take office through some kind of miracle of transcendence.

Did you ever think that Joe McCarthy wasn't wrong, just early?

He wasn't either.
Nor was he the first but few were listening

I'm not sure what this

The act will require corporations with more than $1 billion in annual revenue to procure a federal corporate charter, which mandates that directors consider “all major corporate stakeholders” in decisionmaking, according to a piece Warren wrote in The Wall Street Journal.

means for reality, but

Corporations would also be required to have at least 40 percent of their directors elected by employees and at least 75 percent of directors and stakeholders would have to approve any “political expenditures.”

sounds REALLY cool. I like that idea.

a political and economic theory of social organization that advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.

this part actually makes sense though so that the average employee who has zero leverage actually has a say in things, of course it will be corrupted

A bit of embellishment in the OP.

That's what I'm saying. It sounds like a really good idea and could potentially go a long way to helping the ongoing wage stagnation our country is experiencing. IF implemented properly. Big if there I guess.

I'm in no stretch a Warren fan.... But this isn't the worse idea I've ever seen, and if improved it could actually have some weight to it.

So, their pitch is going to be "demonize Big Corporations and Capitalism, Nationalize the Demons, Tax the #ell out of them, and...oh, yeah...for the youngsters just entering the voting age...FREE STUFF FOR ALL, Yaaayy!" Have I got that right?

No he was just a prick.

Witch hunts and ruining people's lives without evidence in witch hunts has no place in any society.

Why make the private sector more like the public sector?

It's the public sector that's screwing us!

The public sector(government) has proven time and time again it's incapable of promoting job and wage growth with outside influences. Let the private sector(the people) determine wage and growth.

This is just more socialists worshiping at the alter of the state.

I can say from personal experience the more involved the federal government gets the worse things become.

Only an IDIOT would think a business should be run that way.


Brain child of Warren.

Enough said.

Read the second link that is in OP. It is far from the spin attempted to make it look like socialism. In fact, I'd go as far to say is it actually makes the Billion+ dollar corps look more like capitalist entities..... I know, I know, sounds crazy coming from Warren, but I'll give credit where credit is due.
