Jefferey, you're the one being confrontational and resorting to name calling. I'm just trying to tell you what I think will happen over the next few decades and why I think it will happen,

Watch how I write the word...r/evolution. Did that go over your shiny little head? I believe society is going to evolve into a social democracy over perhaps the next three decades. This isn't new, I haven't changed.

Did Bernie or any other progressive call for armed insurrection? Nawp. Maybe you were too busy attacking "Bernie Bros" to notice that Sanders called for a political revolution. What that means is a revolution at the ballot box. A social uprising to seize power from the minions of our corporate overlords.

No we didn't have the votes. So the thing to do is give up, right? We'll never have the votes so why try? Let's just vote for who they tell us to vote for and everything will be fine.


No, I don't want to give up and a political revolution is a wonderful idea, if we ever manage to get the damn numbers where they need to be.
The one thing I happen to believe would make that damn near impossible however, is another Trump term in office.

I think that is the only area where we disagree.
And yes, my head's shiny...grass doesn't grow on a busy street!

You got yours and f*ck everybody else? Me too, dude. I'm livin' the socialist lifestyle! I've got a rich kid and I've got a poor kid and I'm really concerned for the poor one's future. The two have never met.

Mine's not even grey. Hasn't started falling out yet either. I keep it buzzed off so the other old men don't get jealous.

I have a very dear friend up in Seattle who is 63 and still has a glorious head of hair, and he teases me mercilessly about it.
So...on a scale of 1-10, ten being the worst, you're about a six.

Thing is, with Republicans at the helm, we won't see New Deal stuff, Bernie stuff. The Republicans aren't the least bit concerned about throwing us some socialist paper towels, or even much more than paper towels, but bear in mind how they view socialism.

To them, if they apply a socialist fix, it's a short hop to authoritarian fascism because all they have to do is rotate the vector to the wealthy after they've tossed us our Bounty Quicker Picker Upper.
Not Che, more like Generalissimo Franco, or worse.

Beware Republicans who diddle with socialism..it's like handing blasting caps to a ten year old with antisocial tendencies.

You know he's going to cram them up the cat's butt.

Other than saying the social programs that the U.S. DOES have is not socialism, they're completely on-board for corporate socialism. Hmm

Wouldn't that be akin to giving a 73 year old failed businessman and failure in life the keys to the kingdom which the Republicans have already done?

Conservatives seem to have a problem understanding some concepts. For instance, they do not comprehend that what many say is racist. I have concluded that means they believe a statement is racist if it means you own slaves. Likewise, socialism to them means communism.

I am not sure if that is simply an issue of ignorance or stupidity. But when pointed out in detail, they still do not git it.

I am not questioning the good intentions of those on the far left and supporting, for the most part, Communism and Socialism. However, one can only wonder. The United States, for instance, has been at it for over 200 years. Can anybody tell me of one nation that has lasted that long under the rule of either of those two doctrines? I don't think there are and I tend to believe there is a reason for that.
