    The new face of today's Democratic Party and an old face of socialism rearing its ugly head again. Failure just doesn't resonate with the left on any issue. Let the dumbing down of America continue and class envy, jealousy and warfare thrive
    Good! I wish more democratic politicians will remind conservatives what a hoax "trickle down economics" is. It started with Reagan - so go ahead and blast the ****er (and I voted for the guy the first time).
    102 contacts between Trumpís team and Russia linked operatives, 28 meetings. None of these contacts were ever reported. Instead, the Trump team tried to cover up every single one of them.

    How can one group socialism with communism? It is capitalism and communism that are at the more extreme ends and it is the extremes that most hurt society.

    I too voted for Ray-gun, twice. I learned that "trickle down" was called "piss on" by the elites.

    It's all in how you package it.

    FDR interned Japanese-Americans in concentration camps, while Reagan politicized the crack epidemic with countermeasures that dis-proportionally targeted people of color in the 1980's and 1990's (and even today although it is slightly approving). "My heart and my best intentions still tell me that's true but the facts and the evidence tell me it is not," was Reagan's piss-poor whining response to being exposed for having lied about the Iran-Contra scandal. Seriously. But, go ahead, keep bitching and moaning about a 20-something-y/o lefty that only now just began her tenure in government. Seriously, who the **** knows what's going to be coming out of a potential Senator AOC or perhaps President if an earlier scandal doesn't consume her.

    And if it doesn't, it'll be because of the incessant 'boy who cried AOC' threads/nothingburgers that kneecapped any viable criticism of her earlier on when it didn't matter.

    Oh up yours!

    You completely miss the point of the 2nd sentence.
    The point that even in socialism and communism both end up with some who are treated better than the rest, and the example given were politburo members.

    This is historically accurate if you look at both the Russian and Chinese politburos as well as the Venezuelans in their government and military, who receive preferential treatment.

    Wish more people understood personal responsibility so the rest of us didn't have to fund yours. Amazing how poorly informed and easily indoctrinated you are. It actually started long before Reagan back to JFK but you are too blinded by your own ideology and feelings to understand the foundation upon which this country was built and I assure you it wasn't socialism

    Up mine? No way this is in keeping with the forum rules.

    Why not simply learn from my post instead of being so rude opinionated and aggressive toward reason?

    It is amusing reading the rants of right-wingers, who have such a hard-on for AOC, whose actually political philosophy and policy proposals aren't any more 'radical' or 'socialist' than what already exists in Western democracies, like Denmark.

    Why AOC evokes such fear in these these right-wingers is because she doesn't run from the 'Liberal' label, as they want Democrats to do. Right-wingers have succeeded in the past by hurling that label at their feet, 'Liberal,' as if it were something to be ashamed of, something dirty, something to run away from, and it worked. Now, we have a crop of Democrats that pick up that label and wear it as a badge of honor. That makes right-wingers deathly afraid. Why? Because most Americans agree with AOC's proposal to tax the rich at a top marginal rate of 70%. Moreover, more than 80% of Americans support almost all of the key ideas in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal.

    AOC's economic ideas are well-founded in American values and principles. During the Progressive Era, it was commonplace and widely accepted to support high taxes on the rich specifically in order to keep the rich from getting richer. Conservatives nowadays imagine that redistribution and high taxes on the rich are Socialism -- antithetical to American ideals. They have no idea that redistribution is in reality as American as apple pie.

    So, conservatives should be worried. Candidates like AOC are the future of America -- and about time, while right-wing candidates, that believe in unrestrained corporate power and wealth concentration, are dinosaurs.
    "I never meant to say that the Conservatives are generally stupid. I meant to say that stupid people are generally Conservative. I believe that is so obviously and universally admitted a principle that I hardly think any gentleman will deny it." --J.S. Mill

    Dude, I'm not poorly informed. I assure you I'm as informed as you or better.

    You and I simply have different way of interpreting facts. I take note of them and try to encourage others to take heed of them and not repeat mistakes. You twist facts so that they can interphase comfortably for your pre-determined, erroneous conclusions.

    People have the right to be willfully ignorant - look at how profitable Faux Noose is on cable.

    Your reading comprehension needs work.

    What I stated is historically accurate for both Socialism and Communism. Deal with it rather than baselessly attacking other forum members as being brainwashed.
