    You must not read many of my posts. I only drew parallels between the two, dispelled myths, and showed Hillary was even worse. I supported Ted Cruz.

    No. You said he was a fake that actually lived in a Penthouse apartment and didn't really care about the poor. You're wrong. I hope as you get older and you live through life's experience it will help you make a more informed decision on life. Maybe one day if God forbid you have a disaster in your life that makes you homeless, you'll learn that this world isn't all roses. You really have no idea how close we all are to living on the streets one day.

    I've lived it. I've had the american dream, with a house, a brand new car, and a good paying job. I've also had nothing but a trash bag full of clothes and living at a homeless shelter for 5 months. So yeah... nothing is a better teacher in life than living it.

    I was referring to his ideal lifestyle. What he wanted to do. Living in the USSR as a politician, living in a penthouse, convincing the poor that they live in paradise. I already knew of Bernie's ACTUAL living conditions. He IS a fake, though. Well, less a fake, and more someone who tricks the uninformed into thinking Socialism is an ideal that actually works.

    Calling yourself informed is misusing the word. Being poor at one point in your life is not an excuse to advocate a system that can't work, which steals from the successful, and rewards failure.

    Maybe you should have equipped yourself with the skills to succeed in life, you'd have never been poor.

    Maybe you'd be at home in the Green Party. They carry your ideals.

    And if that happens, it's their own fault, absolutely nobody is obligated to help them, and forcing them to is thievery.

    I'll remember you when I need an example of how age doesn't always mean wisdom, and farting dust doesn't mean you're worldly.

    If something happens in life that makes someone poor it is their own fault? Gotcha. Enjoy your youth. Ignorance is bliss!

    Edit: I guarantee you will not find a single person on this forum over say... 40, that will say that you don't learn more from life's experiences than you do in reading books and on the internet. Try it.

    You'd know, wouldn't you?

    Of course it's possible. Some people just choose not to learn, or are incapable of learning. Socialists are a prime example of choosing not to learn.

    I'm not trying to be mean to you. I know you can't control how old you are, but it is what it is. You absolutely can not substitute books or internet for life's experiences. You have no idea what responsibility is until you have to get a job, pay mortgage, pay a car payment, pay insurance, pay for food, shoot a gun, train in the military, have to defend your life against an attacker, ... everything. Or until you deal with things like finding a friend overdosed on drugs, or traveling to a different country, or witnessing a murder, or having a long term relationship, or having major surgery, or so many things that you just have to experience.

    I'm serious, if you don't believe me, start a thread about it. Ask people if you can gain wisdom and just as much experience from books and the internet as you can with life's experiences. Don't believe me? Ask the people.

    I won't deny I haven't experienced some of those, but you also don't know what I have experienced. You shouldn't assume I don't know anything just because I'm less than half your age.

    You don't understand what I'm saying. Of course it's POSSIBLE to learn more from life than you can from books, but it depends on the person. Some people, like Socialists, refuse to learn.

    Wrong. Sorry. Way to change your tune though about life's experiences.
