Canada and several European countries who rank way higher than the U.S. on the happiness scale. We should be so lucky to start living a good life instead of tearing each other down.

That reminds me this detail, I wonder when Snopes will debunk the rumors and other urban legends who mentionned then Karl Marx is related to the Rothschilds?

Btw, let's see how these old leftist profs from the 60s would react if they saw that Karl Marx meme. https://imgflip.com/i/2y5r6q

lol..........it means that we're screwed. The cultural Marxists and Frankfort School have won. They wisely knew back in the 1930s and 40s that the only way to take down America was to rot it from within.

And they have done so.

My guess is that most of these idiots believe in the notion of Democratic-Socialism. Which just shows how ignorant they are. It may as well be called Democratic-Tyranny, or just plain tyranny, but the term socialism will do just fine.

I feel like people on this thread aren't comprehending this...

That's not socialism. People PAY into both of those, and a lot of money too. I'd rather have kept and invested both myself. It is government forced savings, not socialism.

You dont pay into anything. Money is taken from your paycheck on friday and monday the govt uses it to pay the bills. Nothing is set aside for you to collect at a later date and what you pay today has no correlation with anything you might collect later from other worker bees. And the supreme court has ruled that you are not guaranteed any return whatsoever on the money taken from you to provide a retirement income for others. Good scam if you can get it.
