Young people are not happy with the unequal world they’ve inherited. Millennials are embracing Socialism because unfettered capitalism failed them. Many grew up in cars or tenement slums during the great recession when GW Bush's call for "deregulation" allowed financial institutions to peddle toxic mortgage packages to anyone with a pulse, and ratings institutions such as Standard and Poor's looked the other way. As the economy crashed, and things got worse, the right wing refused to agree lend even a small a hand to the many who suffered needlessly, while the few at the top became wealthier still.

Young people, along with women and minorities watched as the economy slowly healed over the next 8 years with President Obama at the helm, and witnessed 30 million Americans who previously had little or no healthcare benefits could now see a doctor without medical bankruptcy in the back of their minds. The right wing screamed SOCIALISM! of course, but they didn't care - They now had medical coverage. They also watched Donald Trump do everything in his power to strip them and their families of that protection, while offering nothing to replace it with except - "Go see your insurance man"


Sorry Republicans - Socialism doesn't scare them anymore... :bye1:

What a load


The problem is that leftists don't teach their children what a great country we live in and how they should appreciate our wealth and opportunity. They teach them to appreciate nothing and if they don't get every self absorbed wish granted they were screwed.

The Greatest Generation may have been the greatest generation. But they were the worst kids. They raised the baby boomers
The real problem is that conservatism has an assclown as its principal spokesperson.
Biden's such a dick. Only a dyed in the wool partisan Democrat like you wouldn't see that

If I'm a Democrat, you're a Socialist. Is trolling all you have? (yes).

You keep repeating this stupid shit that Trump is an ass (he is) without any acknowledgement that Biden is a dick (he is).

Nope. I've said repeatedly I'm not voting for Biden. You simply ignore it and keep chanting the same stupidity. Maybe you're not a troll. Maybe you're just a fucking idiot. Hard to tell.

A fucking idiot says:

Trump is an ass

Biden ... {silence}

Yeah, I'm a fucking idiot because I think they are both asses. Sure, Speed Racer. Sure.

I don't think you are intellectually a Democrat. But you are clearly emotionally attached to them

Biden isn't an ass. That's the problem. He comes of as moderate and reasonable compared to Trump - but he's not. He's very dangerous. And he's going to win because people don't see that. All they see is a reasonable candidate against an unhinged clown. Supporting Trump is like hiring a deranged drunk as head salesman for your company.

No. You are lying. Again. It's pretty much all you do.

Oh please. Every time Biden opens his trap he's arrogant, angry and on the verge of losing his temper. The guy is a total dick. He's rude and disrespectful to the office he's running for by constantly saying "Trump." And the ad hominem is to the point of delusional. The jackass said no one would have died other than because of Trump. "Check the data." It's just your emotional baggage that ties you to Democrats that prevents you from seeing that.

And you're the only "libertarian" on the board who keeps arguing that Biden is better, yet you keep repeating this bull shit that I'm the one somehow out of step

I still don't get the logic behind shaming "fence sitters". If we were all "fence sitters" we'd have a lot better government.
If we all stayed home, how could they claim to have the consent of the governed?
I'm not really referring to staying home. But blind loyalty to a party or leader is simply giving up. It's telling them "Go ahead. Do whatever you want. I'm your huckleberry".
Fence sitters are pretty much the same way...But they'll vacillate between which despot they'll choose....Almost exclusively guided by an away-from motivational strategy.

They're even more worthless than the party-line sheep.
I disagree. They make either party work for their vote. We should all hold that line.
In a time when there are two American parties presenting their ideas on how to make America even better and more American, sure.

When there is one somewhat American party and a other party that wants the entire country destroyed, there is no use for fence sitters. They have to make their choice then, and Mac has. He prefers socialism over capitalism and anti-Americanism over Americanism, that's all there is to that.

Socialism is inherent to all human societies.
When we were hunter/gatherers for millions of years, do you think we did not share?
It's inherent to stone age societies. If you want to progress beyond that, you have to adopt the institution of private property.

"Nobody ever got rich working for a living"

Hard word will never lead to being wealthy...unless you only work hard at sucking up all the money that you can...and making NO productive contribution to the economy whatsoever.

That's the whole idea behind profit...getting more out of an endeavor than the value of what you put into that endeavor.

Profits are parasitic by definition.
That's not according to the actual definition of profit, moron.

Surveys say your wrong. They see much more than that.

I think we'd have a better government with a more non-biased MSM who is less motivated by money than they are honesty. We ween what all the Presidents went through, their family, even children at times. Who wants to subject themselves and their loved ones to all that in order to win a government job?
I thought you were a capitalist? Why would a capitalist think that the MSM should not be motivated by money? Isn't the free market sacred to you?

Or is your idea of capitalism a free market for a select few, while the rest are supposed to be good little slaves that only exist to serve you?

But I do agree - anyone that WANTS to be President has to be CRAZY and should be automatically barred from the position (Catch 22).

The Presidency should be filled by conscripture only.

Wow, given that 42% of voters are Trumpbots, you can't even convince all Trumpbots that Biden has dementia.

They can still make money without lying to the people or exaggerating stories. It seems that politics has seeped into every nook and cranny in our society today including the press. Years ago before cable television, the media did lean left, but they didn't lie about the right either. They didn't tell only part of the story, they also told the part of the story that explained the Republicans position.

Today the MSM is more or less to brainwash people. You can read the results in USMB. We have leftists out here blaiming a Republican President for Democrats destroying Democrat cities, all because of what a cop in another Democrat city did to a black guy. Nobody with an ounce of common sense can come to that conclusion. It's brainwashing that does it.
