That response hit the Marx...
@Poser Pete, he isn't Lenin her off the hook.
@Poser Pete, there's no time for Stalin when you're Russian to impress her
@Poser Pete, he'll entertain no Mao of her bullshįt.
"If you support socialism you don't understand economics"
Trying to impress her:
"I've never been out of the country either.. I still live in the city I went to high school!"
@TaoOfThug, its worked so well for the working class of other nations..... oh wait.
"America is the wealthiest, and most unequal country"
@TaoOfThug, you realize i cant follow that link because its funny picks right?
@BlazingBowman, not with that attitude
@TaoOfThug, also im at work no computer. ( on break right now)
@BlazingBowman, tbh, the establishment of the NHS in late 1940s was a remarkable achievement and one of the best achievements of any government. Now, however, the NHS is in a shîte state due to over population and immigrants coming over for healthcare and leaving immediately after
@TaoOfThug, well having an entire country rest on the backs of the working class/people who had ambition to make money, breeds less ambition to make my own money because i can have his.
See the problem?
@Caine, tell me how I can have someone else's money. I'd love to know. Educating yourself for free and being able to afford Healthcare has absolutely no relation to ambition. On top of that, what has ambition gotten us? Major corporations destroying the planet in the name of profit? Yeah that's way better than being educated and healthy.
@TaoOfThug, lol if thats your take on it.
@Saxamo, insightful comment
@big freedom, necessary
That man just performed the elusive accidental roast
I'm a democratic socialist, so...
@Peewee2000, I don't understand economics either
@Peewee2000, so you don't understand economics either?
@Burt Reynolds, although most people don't really understand economics they just throw out opinions that aren't theirs told by people who if they do actually understand understand economics aren't telling.
@Peewee2000, *grabs popcorn*
@Burt Reynolds, "I'm not a socialist, I'm a socialist when the majority of people vote for socialism" - Peewee2000
@Peewee2000, Because it's somehow less socialism if you throw democratic in front of it? Have you ever noticed how communist nations often throw democratic in their name? (ex: democratic people's republic of Korea)
There is a reason that the US is not a direct democracy, because it is tyranny by mob rule.
@Peewee2000, democracy is inherently bad my friend that's why we live in a republic. The founding fathers believed so because it left out the individual for the group.
Democratic socialism is a political ideology in which the socialist revolution is brought about peacefully through legislation in the existing system.
@LeafOnTheW1nd, because voting for a failed system makes it better
@Peewee2000, anyone ever find it funny when the ones who are the most religious start bashing socialism. It's like," be honest, compassionate, and help thy fellow man to be rewarded in the afterlife". Unless it's socialism. Because helping everyone less fortunate is since they are taking your choice of who you want to help away. Reserve your right to help only the people who go to your place of worship.
@Seohn, When was religion ever mentioned? Anyone ever find it funny when people complain about religion when no one ever brought up religion?
@Seohn, That is a false equivalency. The key diffrence is that religion sets forth charitable giving as a path to being a good person it requires that you willingly give of yourself. In socialism people decide that you (or someone) has more than them therfore they don't deserve it and they take what they have by force. Socialism is based essentially on theft, theft even if done for altruistic reasons is still theft.
Oh boy fp trying to start comment wars down here
