Corrupt Capitalists are bad... Corrupt Socialists are bad...
All things then being equal...
Explain to me how the basic tenets of socialism are bad? What's wrong with the idea of we all looking after each other? And what's wrong with
redistribution of wealth exactly, except for the selfish lame argument of "It's MY money! I worked for it! They Didn't!!'
Or is it only certain kinds of redistribution we don't like? Like, when its given from rich to poor?
Corporate Bailout Redistribution of wealth is OK?
You realize this country has NEVER done anything to address poverty? We can attack and rebuild entire countries, and they want me to drink the koolaid
and believe we can't put a roof over everyone's head? Give them a meal? PROVIDE FREAKEN BASIC LIFE-SUSTAINING HEALTHCARE?
We need to take care of each other. Some people can't take care of themselves. But until we hold our representatives accountable, nothing will
change. In the words of the late genius George Carlin, my friends, "This country was bought and paid for a looong time ago."
