What evils of socialism..... You're talking about communism ding dong LOL
Socialism is communism lite and communism the logical conclusion of any society structured under the socialist philosophy...eventually, any socialist government will reach a tipping point in its demands from producers where the producers can bear no more burden being placed upon them by non producers and at that point, the government must either tell the non producers that they must produce (fat chance) or employ a new level of heavy handedness upon the producers who will naturally resist resulting in a ramping up of government force at that point, the decent into true communism is inevitable and rapid and the government will become truly tyrannical.

All modern liberal philosophies, in practice, must become authoritarian in nature.

Everybody pays taxes numbskull, only the United States of the b******* propaganda GOP thinks a flat tax is a great idea. So the middle class and our infrastructure etc have gone to hell the last 30 years. You are the perfect chump of greedy idiotic GOP assholes....
I've never expressed an opinion on the flat tax. Stop listening to the voices in your head -- they're unreliable.

TAX THE RICH is not a rational economic plan. I'd prove it to you, but you're not interested. I know -- because I've proven it to you before.
lately the rich have been paying the same percentage wise as everyone else or even less now. Country is falling apart from lack of investment inequality and terrible upward Mobility. Great job! No matter how many $7 jobs there are selling each other cheeseburgers and insurance.....
Yeah, that's all crap.
Sure.

Demise of the American Middle Class In Numbers.

Over the past 35 years the American dream has gradually disappeared. The process was slow, so most people didn’t notice. They just worked a few more hours, borrowed a little more and cut back on non-essentials. But looking at the numbers and comparing them over long time periods, it is obvious that things have changed drastically. Here are the details:

1. WORKERS PRODUCE MORE BUT THE GAINS GO TO BUSINESS.

Over the past 63 years worker productivity has grown by 2.0% per year.

But after 1980, workers received a smaller share every year. Labor’s share of income (1992 = 100%):

1950 = 101%
1960 = 105%
1970 = 105%
1980 = 105% – Reagan
1990 = 100%
2000 = 96%
2007 = 92%

A 13% drop since 1980

2. THE TOP 10% GET A LARGER SHARE.

Share of National Income going to Top 10%:

1950 = 35%
1960 = 34%
1970 = 34%
1980 = 34% – Reagan
1990 = 40%
2000 = 47%
2007 = 50%

An increase of 16% since Reagan.

3. WORKERS COMPENSATED FOR THE LOSS OF INCOME BY SPENDING THEIR SAVINGS.

The savings Rose up to Reagan and fell during and after.

1950 = 6.0%
1960 = 7.0%
1970 = 8.5%
1980 = 10.0% – Reagan
1982 = 11.2% – Peak
1990 = 7.0%
2000 = 2.0%
2006 = -1.1% (Negative = withdrawing from savings)

A 12.3% drop after Reagan.

4. WORKERS ALSO BORROWED TO MAKE UP FOR THE LOSS.

Household Debt as percentage of GDP:

1965 = 46%
1970 = 45%
1980 = 50% – Reagan
1990 = 61%
2000 = 69%
2007 = 95%
No link? Discarded as worthless.
His workup shows that the more that liberalism seeps into our government, the more it cost the average person. The liberal tendency to sock it to the rich, like all liberal ideas, ends up hurting those who can least afford it the most...

They believe that they can help the little guy by tearing down the big guy...
They believe that they can strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...
They believe that they can lift up the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer....
They believe that they can help the poor by destroying the rich....
They believe that they can further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred and envy.....
They think they can establish lasting security on borrowed money...

In short, they think that they can help people permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.

As his numbers show....none of the above liberal ideas work in practice....His numbers show that Reagan's conservative fiscal policies brought the average person to a level of prosperity that they haven't seen since before Roosevelt's socialist new deal was put into place.

Liberal arts major......figures..

If history doesn't suit the present narrative...rewrite it.
If you don't know history you are doomed to repeat it. Ethics is also a liberal art subject, something that people are forgetting. What a bunch of scumbags your party is run by, super duper. Great job by the GOP making college so expensive liberal arts is being ignored way too much everyone should have 12 hours of liberal arts so they're not an idiot LOL and a total chump of ignorant greedy idiot Liars. Poor America. I was the last year at Hobart College when they dropped Western Civilization. It was two-thirds of the courses you took freshman year and a great thing. At the end of the year, we captured the only agent provocateur from the FBI ever caught, in a semi riot. they ended up arresteing the FBI guy and let everybody else go LOL. Google Tommy The traveler. Charles kuralt came to the school and it was on the cover of Esquire magazine. But otherwise totally covered up and they let the guy go j Edgar Hoover and all you know. He got two freshmen to blow up the ROTC building and was rumored to have been at Kent State if you know what I mean. So Howard Zinn is okay. I just read about him whatever. He said he was a democratic socialist and that is the only intelligent answer. Socialist means in favor of always democratic fair capitalism with a good safety net, super duper. The Marxists and Communists and Nazis tried to pretend they were socialists in their propaganda. As opposed to what you get from Total garbage GOP propaganda OMG.





Shit, you claim to have a Masters in history but have never heard of zinn. That makes you a piss poor researcher.

I'm not even an historian and I have read his dreck. You are remarkably ignorant.
It is entirely possible that he never heard of him..in any given class, in any subject, someone has to finish at the top and someone has to finish at the bottom. The one at the bottom got there because he either was to lazy to do the work...or to stupid to finish anywhere but the bottom.. In either case, there is a world of information that those at the bottom would probably remain unaware of forever since they are not likely to get smarter after graduating...chances are they would become even lazier or more stupid as there would be no pressure to perform as existed in school.
Howard Zinn or whatever is only well-known in brainwashed GOP circles, Super doopers. He sounds a bit ridiculous.
You sure you went to school? Howard Zin is a well known historian, playwright and leftist academic very well loved among liberal elites...how could you claim any sort of education in history and not be familiar with Howard Zin...unless as I said, you barely squeaked through school and didn't bother to learn anything new once the squeaking was finished?
Everything you know is ridiculous garbage propaganda, super duper. Same goes with everything you know about Saul alinsky who I never heard of either. Or the guy that used to be a weatherman bomber or all your other icons of democratic policy LOL...

What a load of crap. Reagan success like W bush and Trump is based on give away to the rich tax rates and cuts and policy and corruption. With Reagan it was deregulating the s&l industry, W bush Wall Street and real estate, God knows what with Trump. After 35 years of GOP tax rates and policy, we have the worst inequality and upward mobility ever and anywhere in the modern world by far. Taxing the rich their fair share instead of like everyone else is only intelligent and not destroying them LOL aaarrrggghhh. Except in brainwashed GOP dupe world.

Everyone in the world outside your bubble of b******* and ignorance believes socialism is just fair capitalism always Democratic with a good safety net. You people are stuck in Cold War propaganda. Now GOP propaganda. "We are all socialists now!"--the prime minister of Finland when ObamaCare passed. Of course he did not realize the bought off evil GOP and its ignorant dupes..... Free stuff oh no OMG aaarrrggghhh. So we as the richest country in the world are the only modern country without living wage Health Care daycare paid parental leave great infrastructure and vacations cheap college and training and mainly taxing the rich their fair share or more like it anyway. Great job!

Oh, the very last thing you want is anyone to wake up. No, you want them to share your fever dreams and your irrational hatred.

They just worked a few more hours, borrowed a little more and cut back on non-essentials. But looking at the numbers and comparing them over long time periods, it is obvious that things have changed drastically. Here are the details:

1. WORKERS PRODUCE MORE BUT THE GAINS GO TO BUSINESS.

Over the past 63 years worker productivity has grown by 2.0% per year.

But after 1980, workers received a smaller share every year. Labor’s share of income (1992 = 100%):

1950 = 101%
1960 = 105%
1970 = 105%
1980 = 105% – Reagan
1990 = 100%
2000 = 96%
2007 = 92%

A 13% drop since 1980

2. THE TOP 10% GET A LARGER SHARE.

Share of National Income going to Top 10%:

1950 = 35%
1960 = 34%
1970 = 34%
1980 = 34% – Reagan
1990 = 40%
2000 = 47%
2007 = 50%

An increase of 16% since Reagan.

3. WORKERS COMPENSATED FOR THE LOSS OF INCOME BY SPENDING THEIR SAVINGS.

The savings Rose up to Reagan and fell during and after.

1950 = 6.0%
1960 = 7.0%
1970 = 8.5%
1980 = 10.0% – Reagan
1982 = 11.2% – Peak
1990 = 7.0%
2000 = 2.0%
2006 = -1.1% (Negative = withdrawing from savings)

A 12.3% drop after Reagan.

4. WORKERS ALSO BORROWED TO MAKE UP FOR THE LOSS.

Household Debt as percentage of GDP:

1965 = 46%
1970 = 45%
1980 = 50% – Reagan
1990 = 61%
2000 = 69%
2007 = 95%
No link? Discarded as worthless.
His workup shows that the more that liberalism seeps into our government, the more it cost the average person. The liberal tendency to sock it to the rich, like all liberal ideas, ends up hurting those who can least afford it the most...

They believe that they can help the little guy by tearing down the big guy...
They believe that they can strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...
They believe that they can lift up the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer....
They believe that they can help the poor by destroying the rich....
They believe that they can further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred and envy.....
They think they can establish lasting security on borrowed money...

In short, they think that they can help people permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.

As his numbers show....none of the above liberal ideas work in practice....His numbers show that Reagan's conservative fiscal policies brought the average person to a level of prosperity that they haven't seen since before Roosevelt's socialist new deal was put into place.
What a load of crap. Reagan success like W bush and Trump is based on give away to the rich tax rates and cuts and policy and corruption. With Reagan it was deregulating the s&l industry, W bush Wall Street and real estate, God knows what with Trump. After 35 years of GOP tax rates and policy, we have the worst inequality and upward mobility ever and anywhere in the modern world by far. Taxing the rich their fair share instead of like everyone else is only intelligent and not destroying them LOL aaarrrggghhh. Except in brainwashed GOP dupe world.

16 years of Obama and Clinton didn't fix anything?

Why would anyone ever vote for such weak, useless twats?
Oh being civilized and worrying about the truth and not enjoying being a Chump of greedy assholes, super duper. Next time the nuclear option for everything your garbage party has held up for years. I wish....
You've already admitted, Dems are useless.
For once, you're right.
Now go cry yourself to sleep, whiney twat.

NY 26th FINALLY DEM!
Howard Zinn or whatever is only well-known in brainwashed GOP circles, Super doopers. He sounds a bit ridiculous.
You sure you went to school? Howard Zin is a well known historian, playwright and leftist academic very well loved among liberal elites...how could you claim any sort of education in history and not be familiar with Howard Zin...unless as I said, you barely squeaked through school and didn't bother to learn anything new once the squeaking was finished?
Everything you know is ridiculous garbage propaganda, super duper. Same goes with everything you know about Saul alinsky who I never heard of either. Or the guy that used to be a weatherman bomber or all your other icons of democratic policy LOL...
Stick to your useless French history. Because you don't know shit about any other kind.
European and French history and of course a lot of American history since I live here!!. Since Teddy Roosevelt American history has been the GOP and its doops screwing up. Wrecking the treaty of Versailles and the league of Nations.The Great Depression Richard Nixon Ronald Reagan and the giveaway to the rich with propaganda machine never-before-seen. Great job. S&l crisis and bust, real estate World depression, and now Trump chaos and ridiculous tariff Wars etc. And of course allowing 911 through sheer incompetence and the worst wars ever.... Great job! Wake up and smell the coffee
Oh, the very last thing you want is anyone to wake up. No, you want them to share your fever dreams and your irrational hatred.
Sure troll.

Considering you're paid to post here, perhaps the "troll" label is not one you should be tossing about.
