California is a good example of decay from liberal control... the massive homeless in the streets.

If this were true democrats would be the top contributors to charitable causes. Silicon Valley would be known as the valley of giving, and not the valley of wage disparity and poverty while the rich live lavishly.

I think most of the "wage inequalities" the Democrats complain about exists in Democrat controlled environments 🔥

I for one would be delighted to pay more in taxes if I benefited from it. My family has spent over $20K the past two years on healthcare alone. Did we have single payer universal healthcare, the net result from that alone would be that we would have more money in the bank. That would be fine by me. Don't fear what you don't know. Educate yourself to facts, to truth. We are far better off not allowing fear and irrationality to dictate our beliefs, or allowing those in power to manipulate our thoughts.

I have educated myself on it.

People with rare and/or highly individualized conditions that need doctors and specialists free to treat as they see fit and not according to bureaucratized bell curve bean-counter medical charts, lose bigtime under socialized care because they lost access to treatments that might make all the difference for them if they cannot afford to go outside the government network.

The most amazing thing of all is there is not one single law that I know of preventing all the people who want to give their money to the poor from doing it right now. The government doesn't even have to be involved with it. All they need to do is get off their asses and organize it and make it happen. Nobody needs to be forced. It can be 100% voluntary. Though I suspect that most of the people voting for giving away other people's money would not actually give theirs away because they know the progressive tax system will discriminate against people with a higher income and they won't pay much if they make less.

Could it be that the vast majority of people who claim they'd be willing to pay higher taxes actually wouldn't pay higher taxes if such a system were put into place? Could it be these people are all for it because they're #ing broke? How is the IRS going to go to collect higher taxes from people who don't have the money?

he's right.

A lot of people are moving to Texas all the time, because the economy there is always growing. At one point it was a thousand people a day, moving to the lone star state. Many of them legally.

Many folks really ARE delighted to pay more, to move to Texas.

You thought he said TAXES? Vick no, that'd be moronic.....

Oh he's not an idiot. The idiots are the comfortably middle class people who vote for people like him. It's certainly not stupid to vote for socialism if you're broke and damn near homeless. Sanders is just a typical political predator who knows how to sell his platform.

What he really wants is anyone's best guess. Maybe he really believes in what he's selling (there's no accounting for taste, as they say).

I think it's safe to say that most political agendas are driven by ego and will to power. Even if he's too old to be around when his "grand vision" come to pass, people will do that. They think there's some kind of special purpose in having a legacy (there isn't but if the thought of it drives an individual, reality doesn't matter).

Whatever. I mean, from the average person's POV, socialism is certainly appealing (especially if you're on the lowest notch of the economic scale). Desperate people cannot be blamed for advocating for themselves. When you're desperate, you do what you have to do. It's best not to go there. I just think it's better to look at the situation the way it really is. As long as there are people who are not well served by the current system, there will be a "market" for socialism.

Don't worry. All too many of those people are all too willing to vote for the same policies that made where they were living the crapholes that drove them to move to Texas, and when Texas becomes a craphole too, they won't figure out it was their own destructive wishes and desires that did it. They'll simply pick up and move on to the next place where the grass has become greener like a swarm of locusts.
