Ah ... so your perception of those people and the situation in general is skewed.

Got it.


They have been telling you over and over and such an action is a line that can only be crossed once, so it has to be something people are sure they want to go over. It's deadly serious. We're talking about initiating an actual war. Maybe you don't understand what that entails, but it doesn't take much imagination to figure it out.

Before you take that step, you have to make sure not only that you're ready, but that most of your fellows are too.

It's not something to be done just because you're pissed. If you don't have the ready sympathy of a large section of the American public, then you've lost before you start. It's hardly a simply thing, but people in general will lost patience with this, especially when they start to see that this disease isn't nearly as dangerous as advertised or at least only seems to be dangerous in NYC.

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?


So... all of these things are happening right now... under the TRUMP administration...

No, your interpretation of what I'm saying is skewed.

People are saying it can happen but if they don't have the sympathy of the american public then it is never going to happen and the fact is that people are comfortable enough to not make that move against the government.

About this disease not being as dangerous as advertised, you say that like it is a given. I learned from my elders that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. If you look at the curves in countries that were hit hard you would see that if the US curve moves in a similar fashion you are just starting out and it might surprise some people.

Notice the ifs and cans? Might not happen that way, but then again it might.

Skewed? This Newspeak regarding another war pisses me off. What's it then, a war on the health sector and we're about to witness it's death toll on our communities?
Are we going to discuss droning people for the freedom of our markets next? Cool! Shotgun? Me first. Me, me, me!

Good news for socialism and all that, here's more:


US hopeful of avoiding projected death toll
Mitigation efforts are working, White House officials have said, leading to cautious optimism the pandemic will not claim between 100,000 and 240,000 American lives. One model run by the University of Washington School of Medicine predicts the virus will kill 60,000 people in the US over the next four months. The virus response coordinator Dr Deborah Birx said: “What has been so remarkable to those of us who have been in the science field for so long is how important behavioural change is and how amazing Americans are in adapting.”

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

Or one could also argue that taking one for the team so to speak (adhering to the advised guidelines for public safety) is more of what a patriot would do. Because the alternative is being a selfish pr!ck, which means ignoring the guidelines and doing whatever you want, because your a special snowflake.

Just depends on how you look at it.

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!
It’s not that it’s happening under “Capitalism”. It’s actually happening under the auspices of the One World Government and the World Health Org, which interestingly has Bill Gates, the Vaccine Guy, as it’s biggest donor.
They do seem to have our POTUS under their wing at present, but it doesn’t mean he supports socialism/communism. They seem to have him over a barrel but at least it’s in general the Democrat governors who are the most fascist Mussolini types, most notably the Vermont gov suggesting that people should be social distancing in their very homes. Can we say 1984 please!
Now some (Capitalist) stores, such as Albertson and Town n Country are putting signs up saying only 2 of each item per customer or other types of limits on purchasing. In this way they prevent a run an items on their stores. It is voluntary per store.... not gov imposed. I think that’s fine as a temporary solution after people were going around buying up all the toilet paper and selling it online with price gouging.
However, Bill Gates wants a mandatory vaccine in order for people to be able to go back to work, and that’s some serious totalitarian measure forcing us to take whatever little cocktail they are designing into our very bodies. I am sooooo against that. I hope you are too.

This is all waaaayyyy too complicated for the TDS crowd. They saw a meme about "socialism under Trump." That's as deep as their thinking goes.

The late Professor Antony Sutton said the NWO is neither right nor left but a synthesis of the “managed conflict” created by the Hegelian dialectic. You can find that in Alex Jones Prison Planet or in his book “America’s Secret Establishment”.

Really? So Bernie's pledge to voters was to make sure everyone ended up with no jobs? Sounds like a stupid idea to me. Did he really say that?


Government pays for everything for everyone.. check


Again, I doubt Bernie said this. On the other hand Trump is doing it. Wow!


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


I don't know if you noticed it but US debt is at record levels. Seems like Bernie never had a thing to do with it!


No toilet paper... Check


Maybe the right wing tabloids that have brainwashed you might come in handy here. You can thank me later.


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


Yes correct, Bernie's plan was to make sure you had nothing to eat! Wait, when did he say that?


We are all equally miserable... Check


Do a quick google search and you might find that the US is the most depressed nation on Earth. I guess you wanna blame Bernie for that too right?


No purpose to life.. check


What happened to the American dream?


People dying left and right... Check


The last time I checked the covid-19 death rate globally wasn't anywhere near the civilian death rate caused by your last conservative government in Iraq. But hey, securing resources for corporations is worth it right?


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


Pfft! We all prefer the previous plutocracy much better!

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...



Dont give them any ideas!


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


Where did you hear that? Got a link?

This is life in a crisis/state of emergency.

Bernie wants us to do this without the crisis/state of emergency. He thinks this is what normal countries should always be like.

Oh didn't you hear? National Socialism "wasn't really socialism." Just like every failed experiment with socialism wasn't "real."

Oh, look! I found an expert on Krautsalat! Good thing you're here to educate the unwashed masses.

So that's why my Grandpa and his Nazi chums went for the workers first, socialism? What's with this SPD idiot Noske and his Freikorps shooting at... errr... socialists way before the Nazis were even a thing, was that socialism as well? You've got it all figured out already, socialize me that?

Your absurd assumptions aren't going to win you any points on this end, especially when the attempt is so blatantly lopsided. I.E: why is it that I'm accused of being, "an expert on Krautsalat" but ManFromEurope is not similarly challenged on his Yankee expertise?

Puleeze...

Socialism has its place in households & families (virtually the world over); or small, voluntary, communities and/or groups etc., but on large scale such as states or countries, it can not be sustained without force, thereby necessitating some form of authoritarianism (i.e. "Boot").
