For over 100 years now, the Democrat strategy has been to funnel everything to the poor at the expense of the middle class and the wealthy. That strategy serves two purposes. First, it purchases votes (power) from the entire lower class. Second, it forces the middle class into the lower class and the upper class into the middle class. The more poor people dependent on government, the more the Democrats ensure a large voting base for themselves.

That strategy can be clearly seen in the "Affordable Healthcare Plan". There is nothing "affordable" about it and it has devastated the middle class at the benefit of the lower class (the Democrat strategy flawlessly playing itself out). It has even collapsed the healthcare exchange - with something like 14 of the 17 insurance providers dropping out.

The responses here from a tweet by Nancy Pelosi illustrates the catastrophic effect it has on the middle class...

Actually, of course, the exact opposite is true.

This election put the final nail in the coffin of the middle class. It also means we will never catch up with the rest of the world.

What an absurd thing to say given the economic numbers coming out since the election.

We don't have 'classes' in the USA.....we have people who make different incomes and whose incomes can increase/decrease depending on the individual and his efforts.....but these terms have been used so much that we tend to use them now unfortunately....

I get what you're trying to say - but there are different levels of income and that in itself is a classification (just as color, gender, religion, sexuality, etc. are also categories for classification).

No worries. At most it's just 4 years. Possibly a lot less if Trump stays on the current trajectory towards disaster.

Helping people is not evil as you suggest. The problem is that Democrats want to empower government and it becomes very expensive because of bureaucrats. When I talk about bureaucrats, I am not talking about the park ranger. Meals on Wheels is a program that works and it is cost effective. Yet Trump wants to cut off funding. We need to look at these programs and decide how to make them work. The goal is right however the implementation is not working. Trump claims to be a bman so make it work.

Wrong. We need to eliminate these programs and let charity handle them. That's why charity exists and that is not why government exists.

Like I said before, I could not have predicted Russian sabotage and FBI treason. And Hillary still got 3 million more votes than the cheetoh.

Fotrunately, the Russian sabotage and FBI may end up being what takes down that cheetoh.

correct.....however always beware when the Left pushes such terminology......

instead of focusing on making healthcare truly more affordable through free markets and increasing jobs and incomes for more people the Dims want us to think they are 'helping' the 'poor classes' by instituting socialism/communism.....socialized medicine....

"Communism holds that the only way to solve these problems is for the working class (or proletariat) to replace the wealthy ruling class (or bourgeoisie), through revolutionary action, in order to establish a peaceful, free society, without classes or government."

Which shows your astounding level of both ignorance and arrogance. Even after admitting you couldn't predict something, you come forward with yet another idiotic prediction. :laugh:

Russian sabotage and an FBI investigation into it is not a prediction comrade. It's actually happening :thup:

No - those are not a "prediction". They are vintage tin-foil hat conspiracy theories. But that's not what I'm talking about. You said:
I could not have predicted Russian sabotage and FBI treason.
To which I responded at the irony of you making yet another prediction after admitting you couldn't have predicted something as an excuse for your failed prediction about President Trump being elected the first time.

In other words, you have neither the intellect nor the humility to realize that there were unforeseen things which you blame for Donald Trump winning the election the first time and that there could be all kinds of unforeseen things that will get him elected a second time.

Why would we want to "catch up" in the race down the toilet bowl?
