America is turning into a third world nation because wages have stagnated since the 70s. Once thriving working class neighborhoods are looking worse and worse every year. But the 1 percent are doing great. Guess who's championing the yawning gap between rich and poor -- I'll give you a hint .. rhymes with Spebulicans.

That is what happens when people try to race to the bottom and think more guns is the answer, though neither of those two points are left wing.

Here are some videos you should look up on the internet:
  • ISIS executions
  • Burning alive in Kenya
  • Shootouts in Brazil
  • Cannibal warlords of Libera

1. You have made no logical point about anything whatsoever by posting a question with a built-in faulty assumption.
2. Why are you starting a discussion by attacking and insulting an entire group of people?
3. Perhaps other people are simply not as reactionary as you, and are not as worried as you are about 'cannibal warlords' attacking us.

I'm no left winger, but if the far right had their way they'd offshore every damn job they could, cut corporate taxes, get rid of all of the social safety nets, and cram Christianly down everyone's throats.

Note I said "far right"

It was eventually bound to happen, DUH.

It just sucks our tickets show that most of us are on board for it!

No gun control, no liberal media, few regulations, and everybody is very religious in the third world.

You guys should be happy.

You mean opposed to the left who wants to give our jobs away to illegal aliens by granting them amnesty? Or the left who wants to import Syrian, Muslim refugees to do the same without a decent vetting system for our security. Pot, meet kettle.


I'd rather have Christianity rammed down my throat than radical Islam.
