Well I'll be damned.

Give the man a pension and a comfy chair.

I'm all for celebrating old age but I draw the line on making them leaders.

We've enough senile leaders on earth.

Oh really?


The term socialist has been thrown around quite a bit in the past few years. Not since the cold war has the term garnered so much attention in the press and from politicians. But when you look at countries who actually have a socialist economic structure, you can see some similarities to the United States – but there are some really stark differences.
Below, you will see some of the most socialistic nations in the world today:
China
Denmark
Finland
Netherlands
Canada
Sweden
Norway
Ireland
New Zealand
Belgium

You expect a woman to give birth and return to work the next day? Good luck! Will you throw the baby out with the bath-water?


I don't.

The Democrats railed against in the OP are fighting either to keep or attain the social benefits that you, as a Netherland's citizen, take for granted everyday.

Living in a country does not mean you agree with the politics of the country. Since WW2, the Netherlands always had a rightwing majority in the House, and still has. Also 'we' have more than 2 parties in our Chambers, so things are not Black-White, but there is a big spectrum in the middle.

Still I feel this a diversion from the topic and is pushing this topic Offtopic from the US to the Netherlands.

It's not much different in the U.S. than the Netherlands, though. There are only differences on the periphery. For instance, you guys window shop your prostitutes, while we elect ours. You guys have dope in coffee shops, the dope here in our government offices. On the other hand, maybe you guys are too stoned, to get emotionally involved.

Americans are trashing you for negative comments about your country while trashing America themselves.


We should export hypocrisy. Seems we have a surplus.

I don't mind women taking control of their own womb. It is not as easy as you portray in your post.


Is the women's reproductive rights status quo in the Netherlands at risk, under attack? Are doctors, and their staffers, who offer abortion services lives' at risk?



Our socialize medicine is not as socialized as it seems


How often do you hear about your citizen's losing their homes because they, their child or a parent got sick?



Also, being a part of the most anti-democratic institution of the western world (the EU), our freedom is not guaranteed.


Then Trump's agenda should concern you!



I wish we had someone like Trump over here...


Really? You want someone to come in an demolish your health care system? To demolish your social safety net? If so, perhaps you're more closely aligned with modern day hotsy tostsy Nazis than you let on.

I have a slight suspicion that you 'might be' a Democratic partizan. But, please correct me if I am wrong....

The problem with most partizans is that they refuse to see anything that does not confirm their bias. They will also be triggered by anything that does nog fit their party's narrative. So sad... (fits both sides!)

Oh who could doubt such a credible blog as your source for information? Perhaps with time you can expand your references to Comedy Central reruns or even, gasp, Mother Jones!

I am not a political partisan. I am a person that is passionate about women's reproductive rights, equal rights for LBGT, compassionate application of current immigration laws, including refugee and asylum seekers, better public education in lower income communities and I'm strongly for criminal and prison reform.

These are the things that the politicians that you rail against in the OP are fighting for.

I'm particularly disturbed by the SCOTUS nomination, whose paper trail continually cites and relies on the unquestionable legal and moral authority of Merrick Garland. And I'm disturbed by how he's being pushed through by agenda driven Republicans, while the Democrat politicians you rail against in the OP, continually provide documented evidence as to why he shouldn't be confirmed.

Your OP, while claiming foreign non-partisan observations from a safe socialist space, sounds like it was pulled right out of Putin's handbook, doesn't address the issues driving the opposition mad, or the reason people, on both sides, percieve Trump actions as unhinged or how and why people are reacting to those very unpresidential unhinged reactions. You're just "dog whistling", by shouting out outspoken Democrats names, Democrats who passionately represent issues important to them and their constituents.

Is that your way of denying that citizens of the Netherland enjoy socialism to a much greater degree than we do in the USA?

Now now, no need for that logical and ethical take upon political affairs within the US.

Diatribe. It's the ethos of US politics. Why won't you get that?

As is though I fully agree with your take on the issues at hand, especially your well made point. I see nothing but irony when people attack those that genuinely try to represent and cement individual rights and freedom.

Meh. For what it's worth, keep on keeping on.

You almost made mee pee my pants laughing... Your avatar is really non-partizan! You mentioned almost all the Democratic talking points. You seem really objective to me! Also the 'documented evidence' part was really good! Hope I can still read them after I wipe Cory Bookers crocodile-tears off...

Also, I will ask my parents for confirmation on my heritage, cuz I am sure I am not a Russian.

EDIT: And why the hate for Putin, he is such a lovely Socialist!
