I’m not at all sure on what basis you equate socialism with a lack of freedom.

 

Perhaps you can explain.

Roobaa said "she promises socialism at the expenses of us taxpayers and less freedom." which means she promises socialism AND less freedom. Nowhere did Roobaa say socialism meant less freedom.

One has to look at WHY they don't have $500 in cash before making sweeping statements. Do they smoke and drink alcohol, spend the money on Xmas presents for the kids, buy expensive food etc etc.

Whenever the media does a sympathy piece on the "poor, I've yet to see a starving person interviewed. In fact, they are usually quite plump, have a car and tv etc.

Of course, the poor are poor because they are freckles.

 

 

Take some time to watch this:

I really, really hope that Warren wins the Dems selection, and I bet the GOP do as well. When Trump finishes his bedtime prayers he probably says something like " and please let Warren win the Dems selection".

The entertainment factor of the debates will be YUGE.

Love her or hate her, she's probably right about one thing....

 

["By the time we get to 2020, Donald Trump may not even be President," Warren said to voters in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, gathered at the Veterans Memorial Building. "In fact, he may not even be a free person."]

Let's start with the national debt: Doubled by Trump's tax give away to the hyper wealthy.

 

Millions of Americans are being reminded of what the fundamental injustice actually is (not what you want to convince us it is) when the complete this year's tax returns. The taxes of blue collar and middle class Americans hiked to pay for Trump's tax give away to the hyper wealthy.

 

Your argument regarding taxing the rich falls flat when faced with the fact that throughout the post war years until the 1980s, the maximum tax rate never fell below 70%. And yet this is the period of growing prosperity for working class and middle class Americans.

 

 

Meanwhile over 60% of Americans do not have $500 in cash to cover an emergency.

 

So let's keep giving tax breaks to the hyper wealthy, let's keep increasing the national debt to achieve those tax breaks, let's continue to increase the tax bill for ordinary Americans.

 

As for your straw man "The assumption is people don't earn their wealth or success and those who don't have success have somehow been oppressed by the wealthy."

 

The actuality is not a simplistic 'success/fail', the truth most Americans live is working hard, to barely get by, barely cover their cost of living, barely cover education costs, health insurance cost. 

 

Hard working Americans floundering under a system rigged against them.

I am always curious, why is it I see you guys bitch about the taxes the rich aren't paying, but never about the excessive spending?

Hey, Warren! This is February, 2019.

Rather than babbling about an election nearly 2 years away, do your job as a Senator and focus on the issues at hand.

I think I got both birds with one stone when I pointed out Trump’s tax giveaway to the hyper wealthy has doubled the national debt.

 

But I do accept such a plainly stated observation of fact may have evaded you.

Hey, Trump, This is January 2017.

Rather than babbling about an election almost 4 years away, do your job as a president and focus on the issues at hand.

She wishes. I wish for a million $, but it doesn't mean I'll get it.

If Trump was removed by some chance, the guy who becomes president will make them wish Trump was still president. 5555555555555
