Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
North Korea is no model for socialism.
North Korea can best be described as a Narco-Terrorist Tyrannical state set up to support the Kim Family and the ruling elite.
They are the only ones who benefit from the state existing at all.
Citizens specially selected to live in Pyongyang do well by North Korean standards.
But North Korea is FAR from socialist.
They have something called the Songbun system, which is a cast system based on the political, social and economic backround of their direct ancestors.
It affects everything from education to employment, those descendents of Korean War Veterans and high ranking party members tend to have very high songbun...
Socialism is an economic system, not a caste system.
You have good Songbun, you get to live in Pyongyang and have greater access to services and food.
No definition of socialism fits that definition except the bizarro right wing definition where literally anything they don't like can be described by that word.
That said, maybe we can work out a trade. I'd be willing to give them a half dozen or so of the prisoners we have on death row for this one prisoner they have. Such a deal. Lil Kim should be tripping all over himself to accept.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
