    They live at 50% of our GDP and always have 10% unemployment. Even Krugman says they have Eurosclerosis. Just another example of socialism in action. Ever heard of Cuba/Florida??

    ?? Europe combines more socialism and lives at 50% of our GDP and would live at 30 % if not for our inventions. Do you understand? They riot weekly in France despite confiscatory taxes. Do you understand?

    I was teaching you the Great Christian Commandment and explaining how relatives of school shooter's victims wish you had not killed the school shooter's God.

    most adults here have smart phone toy super computers in their pockets at $150/month while 2 billion people live on
    $2/day or less. Now does the liberal understand?

    yes its basic science, survival of the fittest, not survival of the least fit who live on the dole. Do you know about science? Do you know the liberal nanny state is bigger and more crippling than ever and so of course Sanders wants yet another huge increase because the old, anti-science survival of the lest fit, nanny state failed so badly?

    it does not matter if its 10 or 30 million. Libs now say wall is immorality and must come down to let another 60 million in so real Americans will never see another wage increase and libs can claim capitalism does not work. See why say liberalism is based in pure treasonous ignorance?

    Yale, MIT study: 22 million, not 11 million, undocumented immigrants ...

    Why would they when Marxist Democrats need to create a lower class with welfare dependency as a solid voting block. Do you think its coincidental that blacks vote 97% for the lib nanny state?

    Marx popularized both terms. Socialism was a stepping stone to communism.

    Lenin: "The goal of socialism is communism."
    Its astounding how little a liberal will know.

    I suspect that blacks vote 97% Democrat due to the fact that the Democrats supported the 1965 Civil Rights Act while Republicans courted the Southern White Supremacist vote. Based on what I've seen of the Trump administration & its policies, the Republicans are still courting that vote.

    Your claim of 60 million illegals is not now, nor ever was true. Fake stats. Pure propaganda for the fear-mongering radical conservative Republicans. Not based on facts. Pure BS. :(

    We need more socialists, libertarians, Worker's party, constitution party members in our legislative bodies. heck maybe even maybe an avowed fascist or communist or two aren't a bad idea. we need a far broader spectrum of ideas and ideologies, and we need media coverage for the entire spectrum for a healthy republic.

    Other free people don't have a monopoly for determining my value in the marketplace. I'm surprised you'd give that power to someone else to evaluate yours.

    You support extreme economic inequality as a positive force in China. I do not. You believe that same inequality here is acceptable. I do not. We disagree.

    There are no guns involved here. But I do think government should pass laws requiring large companies & corporations contribute more of their profits toward establishing & supporting social programs to help those incapable of providing the basic necessities of life for themselves. That's a small burden for those capitalist companies, but a huge benefit for the general public & society at large. You will defend & protect the businesses against the needy. But I, as usual, disagree.

    Answer the question. Prove that class mobility surged after the Regan tax cuts. I know being called on to justify your claims is inconvienient but perhaps you should learn not to make things up.

    Nope. Haven't seen any proposal from him for total immigration control, other than vague statements with absolutly zero specifics. But perhaps you can provide a link to his dtailed plan for a total renovation.

    And by the way even Trump isn't calling for a wall not to mention one that covers the entire border.

    China is still a totalitarian government that severely limits human rights. Economics isn't all there is to be concerned about.
