Your problem is the same exact thing.

You think you know it all when it's painfully obvious that when it comes to economics ... you know nothing, Jon Snow.

And your problem is you can’t see past your own ideology. Do what Obama did? Obama did the same things as trump. Gave massive money and freedom to the corporate sector and wealthy elite. You’re so blinded by your own opinions that you can’t even tell when someone is supporting your team or not. So long as they have the wrong “label”. Obama was a massive bank whore, expanded wars all over the Middle East, crushed self determining nations around the world, exacerbated wealth inequality, all your favorite things. Tortured hajjiis, massacred Africans, stole gold from Asians.

What do you know about economics? You think the us is doing great! You think trickle down economics works. You think giving tax breaks to the wealthy will bring middle class jobs back to the us. You think the wealthy are “forced” to leave our country, offshore their wealth, and outsource their labor in order to make a profit. You don’t see any conflict between thinking the nations economy is doing great, and the massive unrest, addiction, mass shootings, suicide, debt, and all the other markings of a failing society! Open your #ing eyes.

I think Warren is dead serious on wanting to implement her plan.





I agree. And there will be exemptions, just like with Obamacare.

Failing society is about more than just the dollars.

A large part of it has to do with the destruction of the culture. That has little to do with money and more to do with erosion of morals as much as you leftists wish it didn't.

No, it’s mostly about the dollars. Don’t fool yourself. How many rich, middle class, or even just plain solvent people are running around robbing people? Causing social unrest? Committing suicide? Descent into barbarism and anarchy comes from a loss of opportunity and control.

“Erosion of morals”, what the fk does that even mean? Other than, I expect, that you assume you have morals others are lacking. At any rate, I largely agree. People have become used to dehumanizing other people. They have lapsed into judgment over others, and assumptions about their worthiness or value. There is no outcry when we randomly go kill millions in other nations, or when we overthrow governments and destroy the lives of millions of citizens all in pursuit of profit. When our congressmen vilify lifestyles such as homosexuality, and then are regularly cought in the men’s room with their dick in some boys mouth. When we support massive waste, fraud and abuse from corporations, but then castigate the poor for wanting some level of reasonable subsistence. Yes, the collapse of morals is definitely a large part of our problem.
