And if billionaires aren't obsessed with money? Let's dust off our neurons and use the critical thinking skills for a moment. What does people get in exchange for working 40+ hours each week? Money. What does the landlord or bank demand in exchange for housing? Money. How does a person acquire food (in most cases?) Money. How do we pay for transportation? With money. How do we get cable, internet, clothing, insurance, restaurant meals, any luxury at all? We have to pay for it with the almighty dollar. Our entire existence from the second we are born until we are put in the grave (and sometimes even afterward) revolves around money: acquiring it, keeping it, making it grow, or not losing it. And conservatives are just as obsessed with other peoples' money. Just read any one of the thousands of threads about how THEIR money is wasted on illegal immigrants and/or other people's welfare benefits.

Trump has spent his entire adult life making a public spectacle out of himself. There are reasons why he did not win in his home city or state that have nothing to do with politics and all to do with nearly 40 years of self promotion.

He and OC seem to share many personality traits.

“When asked whether “a world that allows for billionaires” is “a moral outcome,” Ocasio-Cortez responded: “No it’s not. It’s not.”

“She then said that she does not believe all billionaires “like Bill Gates, for example, or Warren Buffett are immoral people."

“I’m not saying that, but I do think a system that allows billionaires to exist when there are parts of Alabama where people are still getting ringworm because they don’t have access to public health is wrong,” Ocasio-Cortez said.”

I'm sorry but any tread which uses Fox news as a premise is not even worth reading.

equally distribute all wealth and end up with people who are starving, poor and homeless and devoid of incentive to improve and contribute to the commune.


Not every person is going to spend their money wisely as socialists would have you believe. In order to have a political system placed in control of the lives of the nation, would require an elitist strata of government officials who are more equal and untouchable.


Expect the underground economy to cosmically expand beyond the trillion dollar figure it is currently estimated to be Expect competing gangs and violence over control of the black market. Expect billionaires to result from illegal activity.


Will men still participate in professional sports given the meager salaries provided by fellow comrades scratching for a living, having spent their money on high priced black market products???????


Russia is the perfect model! Venezuela and Cuba other role models.


So who is in bed with Russia?????????????

She also said the world is going to end in 12 years due to climate change so...I guess it doesn't matter if we take all the money from the billionaires.

Abolishing the Federal Reserve and erasing the national debt would be a good start.
