Working people who pay taxes are already fleeing Ill., NY, Ca. And the Dems want to make the rest of the country more like those states.


That is correct- socialism/communism destroys every nation it touches.


That is why it is so puzzling as to how this political philosophy has had such staying power. A logical person would dump a political philosophy that has failed so many times................if........... the objective is to find a political system that benefits a nation.


If, on the other hand, you want to subjugate a nation, socialism/communism is an excellent choice. There will always be tyrants looking to rule over the masses. Today, we have the oligarchs supporting the dem party, much as feudal lords ruled over serfs in the middle ages.

I am not sure of that. They're a pretty dumbed-down lot these days.

2 things the government does that effects our lives is taking money from us in the form of taxes and protecting our borders from invaders. As time goes on our government gets increasingly good at the former, but is really starting to drop the ball on the latter.

Nowhere.


What positions of power and influence are currently held by Libertarians, compared to the two "major parties"?

Why be so paranoid? Do you not think that Democrats also have children and grandchildren?

I see nothing wrong with Dems proposal of Medicare 4 All. Or do you sharply disagree with it because poor people absolutely must NOT be entitled to any FREE medical care, whatsoever.
