No doubt we are on the road to democratic socialism. Republicans have no one to blame but themselves. A couple decades now of screwing over young people to feed the insatiable greed of aging boomers and hate-mongering divisiveness the GOP used to encourage turnout of a dwindling demographic has created a resentful and angry young voter cohort that will propel the more leftist progressives to power.

In all seriousness though, the Democrats have swung much further to the left then in previous years, that is the problem. If they were all closer to the middle, they'd win the 2020 election without a doubt.

Under a system such as the Democrats are proposing if they were to gain power and put it all into practice it would not take long for people to just stand up and so NO MORE. As they watch the money they earn fly out the window, have their property taken by the government by force if required, see free speech and expression disappear,( hell say goodbye to the entire Bill of Rights) and see what was taken from them given to people who just walk across the border with their hand out demanding their due in Spanish seething anger would quickly develop.


People would start making stands, preferring to die on their feet to living on their knees. What would there be to lose? Disarming the citizens would be at the top of the list for the Democrats to do. To borrow from Star Trek resistance would have to be futile. But at that point if there's nothing left to lose but your life why not just jump in? And there's no way the government could pacify the population effectively to start.


IF ( big if) the Dems actually get power. They will have to blatantly rig the coming election. There's a reason they want to remove Trump from office before it gets here. He's standing in their way. About the only way I can see for them to defeat him is to remove him from the equation. Who will be able to step up to replace him?


Under the level of government control the Dems are looking at the country would implode. People would fight. Even if defeat was certain I would fight anyway. And I'm not even alone. There's nothing more dangerous than people who have nothing left to lose.

Seriously, the shrill hysterics and fearmongering of the conservative right on this forum is just as bad as the Left.
Except that there is not a single Republican politician at the national level who has said that they support white nationalism. In fact, Trump has condemned it many times.

This is very different from some Democrats - who openly embrace socialism and illegal immigration and fail to condemn left-wing violence.

Just because you feel you are best suited to the kitchen fixing supper for your man doesn't mean every woman agrees with you. There are many, many capable women out there who are qualified for the presidency, Haley among them.

The whole "woman are too weak and emotional to lead" meme was created by men to keep women down. Congratulations for aiding and abetting them in that goal.

Bigcitydreamer: yes and the government can own 51% of everything. Just like China. Wouldn't that be awesome. If you talk to anyone who has lived under socialism or communism you would be very scared.

hopefully in Trump's second term we can institute a fitness for citizenship law and and settle who can be here and who will need to leave. Being born here will not be the determining factor.
