Why is democratic socialism bad?


#101

So how do you pay for the military, post office, ect without taxes?

There is no such thing as Democratic Socialism! That’s a made up name by the Communist Democratic Party to fool their uninformed Liberal followers. As Stalin said, “The Goal of Socialism is Communism”. That hasn’t changed. They use the Socialist label because they know people will accept that easier than Communist since our cemetery’s are full of fathers, mother, sisters, brothers, uncles and grandfathers killed by Communist so don’t tell me the Democrat’s are not communist, because I know better.
In 2010 I went on the Communist USA website and on their “Card Carrying Members List” was Pelosi, Schumer, Cummings, Rangle, Frank, Waters, Jackson, and all the rest of the Black Caucus members along with many other Congressional members for a total of 80 card carrying Communist Democrats! I copied the list and sent it around the internet and about 3 weeks later I see another list going around with them all listed as Socialist but Pelosi & Schumer were not on that list. I went back to the communist website and they had then locked the Card Carrying Members list so only members could view it! Now why do you think they suddenly locked it from view?
You Democrat followers have some very hard lessons coming if Democrats ever get back in full control of the Government again and it will not be pretty because you are just useful idiot’s to them just like Hitler’s followers were and he killed them as soon as he no longer needed them because communist know when their useful idiots realize they were tricked and lied to and will not be living the good life with all the free stuff promised to them they’ll be a danger to Democrats and turn on the communist!

Socialism, of any kind, cannot survive on it’s own. It must have a capitalist backbone. A pure capitalist or socialist economy is bad.


#104

Just look at NY, Cali and all the other states having people relocate to Texas, South Carolina and Florida.


#105

Some Liberals might actually say that California is footing the bill for federal taxes, because they pay more in taxes, period. But agreed, just look at their economies under socialism. Look at Paris, at LA. There are many homeless, and people aren’t getting the care that they need because they are giving it to non-citizens first, and some of that money is going towards government interests. It’s all in shambles.


#106

People flee from Cali not because they want to, but because the cost of living is impossible, and there are no jobs. the Cali economy is hyper inflated from Silicon Valley, where there employment is little to none. You take Silicon Valley,and Hollywood and tourism from San Francisco and California is nothing but a desert wasteland.


#107

Fleeing? Prove it…


#108

Evan Fake News MSNBC is reporting it! Pound sand Libby! keep destroying your own states, dont destroy ours!


#109

Tell me how much more in taxes I as an American citizen should be paying and I’ll tell why I might not like it. You’re asking me why it’s bad, I need to know the cost before I can answer that.


#110

138k of almost 40mil people left California?!

I hardly call that fleeing lol


#111

What on earth does that question have to do with what I wrote? We all know Congress has been given constitutional authority to lay and collect taxes to pay for the common defense and general welfare as itemized beneath Article 1, Section 8, Clause 1.

The military, post offices and post roads, are included in the list subjoined beneath Article 1, Section 8, Clause 1.

The unavoidable truth is, the Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’, Andrew Gillum and Ayanna Pressley’s socialist plan for “free” college tuition will be paid for by taxing millions of college graduates who worked for and paid their own way through college and are now trying to finance their own economic needs.


#112

Want to rethink that?


#113

5 year old data? Might wanna research that.

Also from your old article… it mentions 5 million left while 3.9 million moved in. A negative 1.1 million trend over 8 years (2005-2013). That’s about 130k a year.


#114

Data is still Data, no matter how old! And look at the chart where they migrated to! Heavily Conservative States! Game check and Mate, you lose! It Still doesnt Change! 5 million people left California for Conservative states over the last decade, facts are facts.


#115

You aren’t very good at this…

5 million left and 4 million came in over 8 years…

Are the 4 million who came irrelevant in your world


#116

Guess where the majority went? Texas and Arizona, heavily conservative states. Colorado was conservative till people migrated there.


#117

Did you see that part where it said it was a net loss of 26 billion to your economy?


#118

And yet California is still the largest economy in the US and would be in the top 10 in the world based on GDP


#119

Because of Silicon Valley! You take away Silicon Valley and San Fran Tourism and Holleywood and you got nothing.
