    So don't tell me there is no money to pay for things the will of the public votes for.
    Tell me what you want and show me the math.

    Show the math.

    Remember, I didn't say it couldn't be paid for at all. I said the rich didn't have enough money to pay for it themselves. The middle class will have to be heavily-taxed.
    Maybe we can get Mexico to pay for it

    If the left were only to propose practical solutions like that, I am sure the right would go along with the the left's proposals

    It sounds more like you are speaking of the ignorant, not the lazy.

    I have no need to answer you question.

    By being a business they have provided for taxes already.

    The Nordic Countries are so not socialist, they had to set the record and tell everyone that they're not Socialist...



    Why is it so difficult for people to understand what a Socialist economy looks like?
    They are not a Socialist nation. They are Democratic Socialists

    That is at best an uneducated comparison. It is outright stupid to make such comparisons which only serve to support one's failed position. Standards must be compared in context not centuries apart.

    On the other hand, name me one thing government; socialist policies, have done that has made life cheaper for the poor, so the living standard goes up
    Look up infant mortality rates in Cuba.

    The idea that the average poor family, if they were living in 1919, would be considered rich, tells me that poverty is not just an objective measure;
    Yea, no doubt that that ignorant talking point was fed to you and you fell for it, because there is no reason any intelligent person would make such an assertion.
