Rich people are fine so long as only the powerful elite benevolent ones are the only rich ones.

You watch. AOC could become rich and they'll all be cool with it.

Eh, libertarians with their “free market” theology will lead to the tyranny of the corporations. Today’s libertarians are the opposite of classical libertarian theory, an ideology that’s been twisted and corrupted by the corporations and msm psyops to make the working class vote against their own self interest. They will remove the last restrictions from corporate power.

Thats why I said for now. I don't think anyone one political ideology is the best answer to all situations or problems.

I think we need to shrink govt, fix gov't and conflict of interest, then build gov't backup .

I'm not necessarily opposed to socialist system in certain industries such as healthcare and education , but HELL NO with our current system riddled with conflict of interests. It would make our current oligarch look healthy.

Having said that I would prefer a capitalist solution for healthcare and education versus socialism, but the monetary incentives would be more inline to benefit society and patients. Today the healthcare and education incentives are to benefit the few at the expense of the many.

Capitalism isn't the issue, its our Incentive structure and priorities are fd up .

With the structure we have right now, socialism will not work. Right now, our education is pretty much 100% socialized, and it's FUBAR for most kids. Way too many districts milk the pols for ever more money that disappears to the bureaucrats while the bottom suffers and crumbles through systemic mismanagement, and the kids are trapped with no education at all.

Absolutely it wont. however, neither has capitalism . We have a bastardized oligarch quasi capitalist system.

Agreed its FUBAR. However, I think its the lobbyist and corporations with conflict of interests involved that are drafting the policies who fd up our education system , rather than socialism.

Maybe he should cut all the socialized liberal BS he spends our tax money on?

I live in NY and I don't get free healthcare. But illegal aliens living in NYC certainly do.

Homeless in NYC get free room and board at motels in the winter. Places that cost hundreds or thousands of dollars a day. It's how motels in NYC stay in business over the winter because of the lack of tourism. But how is that fair to the taxpayers?

Our politicians are not beholden to us. If they were given more money, they would make even worse financial decisions than they do now.

Want to make a change for the better? Cut off the line of debt. Make it a federal offense to spend more than they receive in taxes each year. No more spending money they don't have.

The people in NY who care nothing about giving back to society and are nothing but a detriment to the world are well taken care of.

That isn't capitalism's fault though. That's the government getting too involved. Too many rules and regulations, too much punitive tax policy. It's out of balance.

We haven't had a straight up free market of any kind for a very, very long time in a national sense.

When you say capitalism has failed, you talk about it as if it's a political system the same as socialism, but it's not. All capitalism is ... is a word coined to describe a market system that has existed since the beginning of time. It is just the free exchange of goods and services absent government.

Remember, all it is is the equivalent of you and your neighbor coming to an agreement to trade something you have that he wants for either something he has you wants or his services for a period of time. Neither of you needs government for that, but it's capitalism just the same.

I never said it was. My point was that we cant have a socialist society , just like we didnt get a capitalist society .

Regardless of socialism or capatalism We will end up with an expanding bastardized Oligarch control society like we have today, due to conflict of interest

No political ideals stand a chance besides an oligarch controlled society under or current system.

Governor Cuomo is blaming Florida for "stealing" citizens from New York, and Trump for raising New York Taxes, which is accelerating the departure of wealthier New Yorkers.

Clueless Cuomo :

I don't care for the guy but Rush Limbaugh got out of New York and left years ago. I got out in 2014. I am no millionaire but my property taxes dropped from $11,000 on a 2500 square foot home to $4600 on a brand new build 3500 sq ft home in Georgia. Utility and water bills are also through the roof in New York State as compared to the South. Its really too bad that the MSM always lies about everything as educated consumers in the North would then see they are getting screwed in life.

Yet they allow for Illegal Aliens to drive and live in the state.
