Well, Chile has elected a new President, with the promise of a shift to the left, more education for all, and the very wealthy and corperations paying more taxes for that. Something that we should emulate here.

Why yes, I am on the left. However, I really would like to see the citizens of the US enjoying a living standard ranked at the top, instead of being listed as a has-been as the nations that manage their wealth better pass us by. When I was young, so many years ago, the US had the highest standard of living in the world. And a 90% income tax on the very wealthy.

We already have.
Meanwhile Venezuela is paying the price for electing someone who promised something for nothing: shortages and economic disaster.
The problem with socialism is eventually you run out of other people's money.

Someone called a moderate socialist, just goes to show how far left you truly are.
LOL You say left like it is an insult. It isn't. I would be insulted if someone called me conservative. Leftists are progressive. Progressives are forward thinking, open minded, innovative, promoting or favoring progress toward better conditions or new policies and ideas. There is nothing insulting or offensive about being labeled a leftist. It is a compliment. :)

And, more often than not, they know how to spell and how to punctuate a sentence. :lol:

Oh look we have the spelling and punctuation police on a chat board. The last ditch effort of those that are intellectually inferior to the rest of society. Hence why the far left considers themselves the elites of the human race. Remember to them you are just a dollar figure and a potential vote as you conform to being a lobotomized supporter of their cause.

If you had a brain, do you think you'd ever be able to find it in time to say something intellligent? You obviously do not have any idea what either propaganda or irony are. They seem to be just words you throw around hoping to suggest some type of insult. Tip: it helps if you know the definition of a word when you want to use it for some purpose.

Pointing out the propaganda and irony of the far left is the intelligent thing to do. The far left is not capable of saying anything intelligent, it is all from the far left programmed propaganda of the DNC like good little lobotomized followers not capable of any independent thought.

A 90% income tax on the rich? You've got to be kidding! They would cease being rich and be lower income like the rest of us and would have no incentive to lead corporations and deal with the stresses that go along with it.
I have no problem with some socialist programs like social security, a government run health program for all its citizens (not for illegal immigrants) and good schooling for its citizens. Other than that, you should be expected to make your own way in life. The government doesn't owe a living for being born. Your parents created you and are responsible for you up to adulthood, then it's out the door and best of luck.

That's exactly what we did.

It isn't working out too well, is it?

Great stuff, especially the word "promise". What a nice word.

I guess we'll see in a few years, huh?

Is anyone taking any bets?

That only occurred because the rest of the world was bombed into the stone age in WW II. That's what the tax the rich into oblivion crowd keeps trying to ignore.
