It would be impossible to liquidate those assets. Who would buy them? The Government took all of the money.

What we are seeing here is the result of the Liberal Socialists taking over our educational system and using it to brainwash our younger population.

Because the participation trophy society that these kids were raised in has taught them that they don't have to do anything on their own.

So it's the baby boomers fault..

Health insurance costs buried in our paychecks and weighing down wages allowed healthcare costs to balloon to insane levels. Cheap, easy, long-term student loans allowed college costs to balloon out of control.

Hiding 100% of the cost in our tax liabilities would be the death knell, as the two quickly consume the entire economy. As it is, we will soon all be starving and homeless in order to pay for healthcare costs.

Listening to Bernie, Warren and others really gets under my skin. I already think the Republican waste and spend but these proposals by Socialist Democrats is just off the charts crazy. In this day and age we should be moving towards democratizing science and technology and decentralizing Government. WE"RE 22 TRILLION IN DEBT and they want to take us from a Behemoth sized Government to Thanos.

It would mean the Government will have total control over every aspect of our lives from the cradle to the grave. This is what they're saying:

1. Free College for all
2. Pay of all student debt
3. A job for everyone guaranteed employment
4. Reparations
5. Free Healthcare for all
6. Universal Basic Income
7. They're going to control the climate, stop the apocalypse and save the planet.

I mean, COME ON!

How can anyone buy this nonsense coming from Politicians? In order to do something like this, we would be slaves to Government. All of our labor and wealth would go to a few corrupt Politicians. Why would anyone want this?

Like I said, many in the G.O.P. talk about reducing the size and scope of Government but spend like drunken Sailors. This Democratic Socialism is 100 times worse.

They also say, there's no middle ground on any of these issues. That's insanity. In other words, if you're not a climate change fanatic like they are then you're evil. You just want to destroy the planet. The mindset coming from people like Bernie and AOC is right out of the Nazi playbook.

How do you gain total control over the population?

Promise them free everything if they can just tax you more and tell them you're going to control the climate and save the planet. Tell me, what can't you control in the name of saving the planet?

It's not just politicians. My wife just recently started online college and one of her discussions was about free college. My wife had good points as to why that's a bad idea along with other students and the teacher couldn't find a decent rebuttal so she just gave them # grades. Every assignment she's had so far is some libtard topic that's generally off the wall stupid.

I didn't know how bad it was until my wife started school. It's very clear propaganda. Extremely clear.

If anything the government needs to step in to these schools and force curriculum to either show both sides of an issue or find some better way to combat this crap.

Pretty scary stuff. And even more so that weak minded individuals fall for such a thin pony show and propagate it.
