No one called you a whiny bitch.

I think you are a complete and utter fool for being a never-trumper but certainly not a whiny bitch.
You have the guts to share what you think and I respect that.
I was just injecting some humor into the mix.
If you want to call it humor..
Most probably wouldn't. That's fine though cuz I'm not a whiny bitch either.

Romney was the great messiah in 2012 and even I liked him and was going to vote for him.
But now we see his true colors.
The best we had to offer was actually every bit as slimy as the democrats. Just like the messiah before him John McCain.

I was a fool for liking him. I was a fool for liking McCain and I was a fool for liking George W for all his insane spending and licking the ass-cracks of the Saudi Arabians.

How on earth after all this can you not see that it is POLITICANS who are the problem here.

Yet you won't even throw some credit Trump's way even though he is doing a good job?

I am ashamed that I supported the three turd-maggots I just mentioned, but I'm prouder then I've ever been for voting for the first non-politician president.

And I hope the next Republican who wins in 2024 is also not a politician.

Wow...

Didn't know you speak Trumpian.

Can you please explain to me what he meant when he said he was building a wall in Colorado? Does he believe they need protection from New Mexico?

Yeah, ElectricUniverse can speak fluent Trumpian... which actually makes complete sense, since the majority of what he says is complete gibberish.

Name a sector that the democrats don't want to nationalize. Healthcare, energy, transportation, food, retirement, and education are the ones I can think of off the top of my head that (if given the chance) they'd nationalize in a heartbeat. Under the last administration they actually tried to nationalize healthcare energy and transportation.

You're very butt- hurt over........ Nothing. Welcome to the Democrat party. Please continue your complaint about nothing in hopes of making it something.
If you have to actually think about voting between socialism and something Trump said you didn't particularly care for, then enjoy giving away your life for "free" stuff.
Sounds like you already made your choice. As for me. I elected Trump to do exactly what he's doing.

You must not have heard all the names Republicans have been called by the Democrats for the last 4 years.

Human scum is not even noteworthy.

If you give me a minute here I will try to explain the picture as I see it.
I agree with what you suggest above, that yes there is a movement to do what you have have pointed out, but that is not socialism. What I think is important here is just how you and so many others have come to believe that these pushes to ''socialize'' the economy as you call it, is socialism. It is not , at least from the scale of economic systems I learned.

Capitalism. We have capitalism where a guy can own a company and employ people and reap the profits from that company while paying the workers enough money to live. But if the company thrives it is the owner that reaps the wealth while in most cases the workers keep working within the range of salaries that they began in.

In socialism, those companies are owned by the workers themselves and they reap the profit and the wealth from their own labor. If the company fails they fail. If the company is a success, they are a success. This stimulates the workers to work well, sharp because they are invested in their own company.

What you see is not this, nor, is it what I see either.

So why is what we both see called socialism?

Because under a capitalist system, where one person can own a huge monolith of a corporation there is and has been a big fear that a socialist system would take away their private ownership and hand that ownership over to the workers themselves. The private owners did and do not want this. This fear grew out of the Russian Revolution where this happened. But not quite.

What happened there was that when the factories and manufacturing centers and farms were taken by the new government, the government kept control of it all. This was a supposed ''intermediary'' step on the way to socialism..but that next step was never achieved. Why? Well, Stalin for one, a self serving megalomaniac if ever there was one...kept them all in the hands of the government and the workers themselves never achieved ownership for themsleves

Poof,,, good by socialism hello government owned and run everything, a thing that neither of us want or would fight for.

So when I say in that earlier post that socialism has lost and capitalism has won it is because ''real''socialism was never let onto the field.

So just what is this current sense of ''socialism''. What we see is an attempt by certain aspects of the capitalist system to work it in such a way as to keep it running. Capitalism needs consumers and consumers need money.If too many people fall below a low level of monetary power, they revolt and cause havoc within the system. These capitalists want to insure that they do not. These capitalists are battling with other capitalists who just don't give a good God damn. Those capitalists are the skimmers and the ''take it allers'' with no desire to help anyone else except their immediate selves, families and circles, and the rest be damned. ''I got mine and you didn't and quit your crying peasant " type capitalists.

And the thing about capitalism is that it has within it's own philosophical system no regulations to keep this from happening, to keep all the wealth from cycling to the top of the ownership pyramid. There is a mystical ''hidden hand'' that is supposed to take care of this, where competition and innovation and productivity are supposed to balance all of that out but it hasn't by what we can see today. It's all rising to the top where they do not give a crap about anyone but themselves. Gee, that sounds a lot like the ''socialism'' the we are suppose to fear so much.

Dear Aces

Glad you could make it back to toss more derisive stuff at me, I enjoy it so.
I might say though that apparently you ''think'' he is doing what you want him to do because that seems about all you have the capability to see.
Yours again


Buttercup.

PS, make that Butthurt Buttercup.

Yes, you are human scum. OWN IT


I am a deplorable, Trumptard, fascist, racist, and whatever else 'they' might call me, but I own that.

Having a bad label is the modern penalty, unfortunately, for having your own opinions, no matter how small.

We are all heathen in the minds of those at the top.

So please stay human scum, and you are better for it. I will remain a Trumptard hahaha …. and we can all compete for the worst sounding labels perhaps



PS - gave a flag and a star, because this is a VERY timely and worthy topic.

Ahhh the no true Scotsman fallacy.

The funny thing about the russian "socialist" revolution is that it proved marx was wrong. Marx thought socialism was a stepping stone to communism when in fact there's no such thing as socialism, just communism. Socialism can only exist in theory, it can never be practiced. Every organization needs leadership.

Oscar from 'the office' may have put it best when michael and jim were made co-managers: "what company that thrives doesn't have two heads? Where would the catholic church be without two popes? " Now expand that from two heads to everyone as a head. This is why scholastic socialism is a unicorn. There is no practical application that could be sustained for more than a short time.



And the thing about capitalism is that it has within it's own philosophical system no regulations to keep this from happening, to keep all the wealth from cycling to the top of the ownership pyramid. There is a mystical ''hidden hand'' that is supposed to take care of this, where competition and innovation and productivity are supposed to balance all of that out but it hasn't by what we can see today. It's all rising to the top where they do not give a crap about anyone but themselves. Gee, that sounds a lot like the ''socialism'' the we are suppose to fear so much.


I would take great exception to this on many fronts but I will start with only two:
1) The united states has the highest standard of living in the world. Our poor are in the top 1% of the global population. The median per capita income throughout the world is under $3k/yr. The US has a median per capita income of over $28k. So when you and others complain that you're not rich enough, it's really just a complete lack of awareness of where you stand in the world.
2) All one has to do is take a look at the socialist/communist countries around the world to know why you should fear those styles of economy. China, Barbados, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Greece, North korea, Cuba, Venezuela, etc. They are pillars of poverty, totalitarianism, and oppression.

Seriously? Trump has some serious issues from an objective point of view. One not be a democrat to have issue with his tweets, strangely limited vocabulary, and lack of understanding on certain subjects.

You know I believe you are right. Socialism is find as theory but getting it in place to overcome Capitalism is a pipe dream.
I think that Marx and others were correct to critique capitalism as they did but the solution was impractical . This however to me does not remove the need to continue to adjust it within itself to ensure it continues to provide the best for the most. It's when the ''best'' comes at the expense of the ''most'' is when I think it needs to be, dare I say , controlled?

By that I mean, is this system of economics a system for all or is it a system for the few. More and more it seems the few.

As for me you misconstrue my critique of capitalism.I'm not crying because of capitalism. I have not had to work for 17 years and live on modest acreage with 3 acres of river front viewing from my deck. I"m comfortable fat and sassy.

As for the country s you list, could not their ''socialism really be called feudalism? Peasants living under the regimes of totalitarianism that are only ''called'' socialist? That's how I see it anyway.
