It occurred to me that our existence during this wonderful Covid pandemic is like a tiny taste of what our lives world be like under the socialist policies of the Bernie Sanders and AOC's of the world.

No job.. check

Government pays for everything for everyone.. check

Instantaneous mass build up of national, state, county and local debt... Check

No toilet paper... Check

No food at the grocery stores and a shortage of everything.... Check

We are all equally miserable... Check

No purpose to life.. check

People dying left and right... Check

How are you all enjoying your tiny taste of socialism so far? What's it taste like?

People in socialist countries, get murdered by their governments en masse... that isn't happening here.

That crap won't happen here, because of the 2nd Amendment.

Thank you, Founding Fathers...

Yeah, for now. If they ever get rid of the 2nd Amendment, or make laws that basically render the 2A unusable we'll see what happens.

I see that in china that they were binding and putting very sick patients into body bags, and dropping them off at the morgues to be burned alive, because they were full of virus

And yet, it’s happening right here, right now under TRUMP.

Come on, this is like that meme two or three weeks ago.


It is happening now. That’s capitalism! You are feeling the ugly boot of capitalism in your neck!

The gun owners are hiding under their beds, because "Stay at Home to flatten the curve"

If the patriots were going to do anything - last week, the week before and the week before that was the time to act

These arguments are ridiculous.

I hate the trope that "why aren't you doing anything with your guns" over every little thing.

The conundrum is that once that domino is tipped, it's all over. The moment the people of the US flip the switch and use their weapons to overthrow the government. The entire world will burn, It will end up being a point marked in history for the next 1000 years.

Maybe it's not that people won't act, but they take it as the serious action that it is and refrain. The moment the tide turns, it turns forever and will define the future of humanity.

Or, it’s what things are actually like under a Donald Trump Presidency.

Crazy idea I know.

You are encouraging violent action.

Patriots do not want violence. Patriots can ride out a storm, without conflict.

Patriots take care of their neighbors. Patriots watch over their communities.

Patriots don't act on internet fearmongering.

Take a deep breath... step back.

Seriously.

The difference is that it's temporary (a few months) under Trump. Permanent under the Dems leadership.

It's an action that there will NEVER being any going back from, not just for america but for the world.

Not hard to understand that those would treat it as such.

I know I do, as well as many others.

Amen.

Let rationality prevail, over senseless bloodshed.

Those that clamor for war, have never actually seen it.

I have seen it. It is gruesome. It is horrific. Avoid it, at all costs.

To be fair, the government debt has been building for decades.

Under Obama, the National debt briefly exceeded GDP, but they (Congress, not the President) reigned it in.

Under Trump it has always exceeded GDP, for the whole three years and there's been no attempt to cap it (not really Trump's fault as budget is the domain of Congress).

Still, you'd think a successful businessman director would know the difference between debt and capital and would raise some ruckus if the board are screwing the company over.

Even if the cost is a socialist america?

I think the question, "When is enough, enough?", is pretty legit.

Especially when the OP is saying that this is a taste of socialism and in other threads people are saying that this might be a permanent thing.

I hadn’t thought about it, but you are spot on. We are living in a “socialist utopia” right now. I can’t say I like it one bit.

I like tim pool's(he's entertaining, rarely agree with him) interpretation that covid19 is a 30 day free trial run.

Like those old AOL cd's that were mailed out.

Everyone gets to try it, lets see who ends up paying for a subscription.
