Leftism is just modern form is slavery. Nothing new.

I'm sorry but this is a intellectually dishonest approach to naming " slave labor". I say this as someone who never votes Democrat.

But we have free elections, if your guy doesn't win that's just as it is. Taxes collected for certain things have been voted on first by the people and then by the politicians they voted in.

Remember the founders went to war for taxation with no representation, we have that now.

In addition, the Trump administration has been appointing conservative, pro-corporate, federal judges with lifetime appointments with the speed of light.

It is far too late to take back our democracy.

FYI this AMerica. Not china. You know that well. No one slaughters or enslaves anyone here.

And when imperialism was in full swing, there was no liberal or democratic party. There was only one party which got everything through slave labor. Use your words wisely.

If you are confiscating peopleís private properties to fund your pet projects, thatís slavery.

In this country, 50% of people donít pay any income taxes but take in virtually all the benefits.

Explain to me why the top 10% pays more than 2/3 of taxes while the bottom 50% pays ZERO but rake in all the benefits.

How is that not slavery?

Didn't they have full control the first couple of years of Obama.

Did the 2nd Amendment even come up?

I know the health care issue was attacked full on and I do believe the sense of urgency to push it through explains some of the problems with it.

And I don't remember any talk of abolishing the Constitution.
