    Right Winger and Pogo are not "leftist trolls". In fact they have yet to post a thread in my experience which qualified as trolling; your post meets that standard and then some.

    You must know the Tea Bagger movement had its moment in the sun; that sun set as people learned the ACA was not socialism, per se; both became as popular as Medicare and Medicaid which are public -- private collaborations (though the private sector has been exposed for fraud on many occasions).

    I read your effort as a failed attempt to support trump,and his effort to exploit Socialism, not as an economic system, but to use it as a pejorative. The inference he hoped the biddable population to take away from his mendacious rhetoric, was that the ACA was the first step in a slippery slope to bring communism to America.

    Interesting that the link above goes to a page that prominently displays a picture of AOC. However, the actual conference site doesn't mention AOC as attending or speaking. Seems like a blatant attempt to link the Dems to a group they have little to do with. I'm guessing the Right would object to a Left-wing blogger writing about a Nazi website and displaying a picture of Trump.

    If the Right has truth on its side why be so deceptive? Are the Russians at work here?

    To all Trump Supporters:

    Above is a post y'all should emulate. Stop with the lies, conspiracy theories and character assassinations and try to do the difficult, defend Trump and the Republican Party.

    At this point in history, the Republican Party seem intent on going the way of the Whigs. Where did the real Republicans go, a party which was conservative, but rational and open to compromise?

    IDK....but are you saying that AOC disagrees with what was written in the article? Your equivalency is false. AOC admits she is a Socialist. Trump doesn't admit he is a Nazi.

    That party is long dead. As is the old Democrat party.

    Republican Party = Nationalist

    Democrat Party = Socialist

    This was a dishonest hit piece blurring the distinction between Dems and the hard-core socialists. AOC admits she is a Democratic Socialist a distinction the writer goes to great pains to blur and I doubt she believes much of what was written. The piece talks about AOC's Green New Deal but it is unclear if this was even discussed at the conference.

    A typical snippet of this biased Right-wing writer:
    While the panelists and attendees were certainly radical, and often expressed contempt for the Democratic Party establishment, it was nevertheless clear how seamlessly they blended traditional Marxist thought with the agenda of what’s becoming the mainstream left.
    The writer apparently saw no reason to support his opinions of the mainstream left
