We have the political party of Trump that calls itself the "party of fiscal responsibility and Christian values"
who has, as its leader, a multiplier adulterer who's the living embodiment of the Seven Deadly Sins -- who's just proposed a budget that would add trillions more to the national debt. Trillions more than this same political party and "president" have already added to the debt via their massive tax cuts for the rich and huge hikes in defense spending they passed over the last couple of years.

Either the party of Trump do not know the meaning of "Christian" or "fiscally conservative,"
Or they are being played as tools while blindly following a FOOL.

Finally, someone who has a brain, how refreshing. Great job CTed! I spent the last 2 days trying to explain what socialism is to a bunch of brainwashed fools, only to discover that most of the young people coming up haven't a clue. Keep up the good work; who knows, maybe we can get through to a few about what social democracy really is. cheers!
P.S: the worst part is Hitler, Stalin, and Mao all claimed to be socialists, and the U.S utilized this from day one to denounce socialism when in reality 2 of them were communist dictators, and the other was a fascist dictator!

Lol. Is this the death panel thing again? Even if death panels did exist, what's better?

A nation that keeps you healthy your entire life and then, when you are 95 and get sick, decides they can't afford to keep treating you, and lets you go peacefully,

A nation where you can never afford to go to the doctor, so you stay sick your entire life, and then when you hit 60 you find out you have advanced cancer. If you had regular doctors visits it would have been caught early, but since you didn't, you have to go to the emergency room where you spend the rest of your days racking up hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of medical bills to pass down to your kids.

But at least there aren't any death panels!

"In order to travel to Sweden with intent to stay and become a citizen, you must have gainful employment with a Swedish firm or a business that has the right to operate in Sweden and hire foreign employees. Apply for a work permit on the Swedish Migration Board website. You will need a valid passport, proof of employment and proof that you earn at least 13,000 SEK per month. Your employer must have posted the job opening in Sweden and the EU for a minimum of ten days, offer wages and terms equal to those offered to Swedish citizens in the same profession and allow union organizations to express their opinion on the terms of employment."

Let's try that in the US

Republi-'cons'... time to use "scare tactics" again:
"Socialism!.... Boo!"

GULLIBLE Republican voter:
"Aaaaaaaah!.... oh my God, I'm scared!"

"I knew just saying that word would work, again, with America's ignorant."

It's not hard to grab America's morons by their noses, point their "minion-heads" in a certain direction, and tell them "what to think." Sort of like how they told all of America's GULLIBLY ignorant (the typical Republican voter) that they were going to come up with "their own" Border Security & Immigration Reform bill back in 2013, in response to the Democratic Senate's bipartisan bill...
JOHN BOEHNER (July 2013):
"I’ve made it clear and I’ll make it clear again, the House does not intend to take up the Senate bill. The House is going to do its own job in developing an immigration bill."

.... and then never did produce "their own" bill... LOL! America's "dumb-f vcks" (the typical Republican voter) sure did "bite" on that lie AGAIN though.

Most Democrats aren't "Socialist," only America's uneducated (thus VERY GULLIBLE) morons are told to believe that by the Republican party (and yes, the morons easily "bite" on whatever that party tells them). Most Democrats just see how other capitalist countries in the world do certain things, and are "open-minded enough" to ask... "maybe we ought to try some version of that method of doing things here in the USA instead of what we're currently doing?"

Naturally, though, most right-wingers are so closed-minded and ignorant that they don't even know what the systems are of the other capitalist countries, and just ignorantly "bite" on that "socialism" scare word fed to their small, easily-brainwashed heads, by the Republican party. They are truly America's "minion-heads"

EXAMPLE: ... "Healthcare"

"You spend your money for things you need" seems to imply that you could personally pay for all of your own medical procedures, which would require that you be incredibly wealthy. Sorry, but I don't know anybody, however wealthy, that could afford to pay all of their own medical bills.
I'd venture to say that probably about 90% or better average Americans rely on Health Insurance to cover the astronomical medical bills, and then you would have to understand how the Health Insurance System works. They wouldn't stay in business for more than a week if the only people buying their insurance were older folks with a ton of medical problems. They would need to sign up younger people that don't have a ton of medical problems to offset the elderly. You suggesting that you would be spending YOUR money for someone else is rather silly.

I think the word you are looking for is "utopia." Yes, it would be wonderful to have a world at peace - no one can reasonably argue with that one. But the rest?

Sorry, I happen to like my faith and think it is a thing of great value. You will find that I happen to agree with you that nobody should have religion forced upon them. That is a founding principle of this country (along with nobody should have it forced from them either - which doesn't get as much airplay in progressive circles.)

Sorry, I happen to like my country. Unfortunately, the world is full of examples of people who do not cherish freedom. And just think, if we had no way to regulate our borders, we couldn't keep those freedom hating people out. I agree that as a concept "no war" is a great slogan - unfortunately, there are people out there who don't agree.

Sorry, I happen to like my possessions. The reasons are endless. Some of them even have to do with the fact that I love being charitable with my possessions, just for the joy of wanting to help others.

The question is exactly how much theft of property can be borne without collapsing the system.

You all want to point to European countries that have the same welfare states that we do plus nationalized medicine.

There are many arguments with this - in the first place, they kill old and sick people as a cost saving measure. This is horrifying and immoral. We should never wish to have a government that operates on such a basis.

In the second, most European countries have little to no military. They rely on us to protect them. We do not have the luxury of a big brother for our protection.

In the third, they have very small (in some cases only several million - the size of a large city in the US) nations with very homogeneous cultures - cultures which share values like a solid work ethic.

In the fourth - even their budgets are coming under strain with the influx of migrants, and their immigrant population is far lower than that of the US.
And I could go on, but I'll make this the finally, the Democrats have neither the sense, nor the ability of European managers. They literally have the mentality of self-righteous six year olds, with no conception of financial constraints or how economies operate.

We are courting disaster long-term, and people who consider themselves intelligent are too ignorant and short-sighted to see it.

LOL! ... I'm laughing at this "GULLIBLE right-winger" cartoon (typical of the way a right-winger learns, "by cartoons"), i.e., the "golden egg" tax revenue part.

Now, here's the truth about the Average Annual Federal Revenue Growth Rate between Republi-'con' "Tax Cut" administrations and Democratic administrations of the last 7 presidents...

Average Annual Federal Revenue Growth:
Carter Budget Years (1978 to 1981) = 14.0% per year
Reagan Budget Years (1982 to 1989) = 6.6% per year <-- Reagan "Tax Cuts"
Bush # 1 Budget Years (1990 to 1993) = 3.9% per year
Clinton Budget Years (1994 to 2001) = 7.1% per year
Bush # 2 Budget Years (2002 to 2009) = 1.2% per year <--- Bush "Tax Cuts"
Obama Budget Years (2010 to 2017) = 5.9% per year

Trump's First Budget Year (2018) = Tax Revenue between 2017 and 2018 only grew by 0.4%... <--- "Trump Tax Cuts"
.... while his spending grew by 3.2% in 2018 (federal spending growth under Obama's 8 years averaged 1.6% per year).

Naturally though, you wouldn't expect an "uninformed right-winger" to be able to look up such "hard data facts".... LOL!
