Nobody is saying it will be easy , what we are saying is the end product will be much better and cheaper. All these other countries are able to address these problems, why do we throw our hands up in despair ?
We do it because the rich and the corporations have a lot more power in this country, and they're willing to pay big bucks to have professional propagandists churn out tidal waves of despair-inducing blather. They don't want the system improved, so they want to create the feeling that improvements that every other one of dozens of advanced nations have managed are impossible here (or, if that's not convincing, that they're so difficult they must be delayed indefinitely while we sit around with our thumbs up our asses debating minutia).

Sweettee is not so sweet. Seems just the opposite.
Poor baby.

You droolers can stop one thing right now. Stop perpetuating that stupid shit about the KKK...like here....you idiots:

"Klanbake" meme Edit
In 2015, conservative blogs and Facebook pages started circulating a photo of hooded Klansmen supposedly marching at the convention. In early 2017, a pro-Trump Facebook group called "ElectTrump2020" turned the photo into a meme which has since been shared more than 18,000 times on Facebook alone. In fact, the widely circulated photo depicts an anti-immigrant march by Klansmen in Madison, Wisconsin, and has no connection to any political convention. An archivist for the Wisconsin Historical Society, which published the photo in 2001, stated that the society is "painfully aware" that the photo has been "misappropriated and distributed without our permission."[4] The term "Klanbake" appears to have originated in a dispatch by a New York Daily News reporter referring sardonically to the discovery of the KKK presence at the 1924 DNC convention. An investigation by journalist Jennifer Mendelsohn and historian Peter Shulman found no other mention of the term until it was resurrected by a Daily News columnist in 2000.[4][28] In 2010, the conservative news site Breitbart published a series of articles insinuating that the KKK is historically solely a Democratic organization, and hyper-partisan social media helped spread the "Klanbake" meme widely in the following years, helped by the fact that Wikipedia claimed from 2005 to 2018 that the convention was "also called the Klanbake".[4]

Because we are impatient and crazy. Short memories too. We said for years we wanted better healthcare, then got it, then voted out all the people that gave it to us., Then we decided maybe we liked it after all and wanted those people back in. We yo yo so much that every time either side did anything the other would just come in and vote it all out. We are hugely inconsistent with our votes.
The average American voter is an imbecile who will pretty reliably punish success. But that's no reason not to make changes for the better. We can gradually ratchet in the right direction, even if we have to deal with the halfwits forcing one step back for every two steps forward.

Bill Bennett: Democrats have made a sharp left turn – Here's what's behind it

By William J. Bennett | Fox News
Freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez insists the Democratic Party is splitting between Democrats who haven't properly addressed policies important to young people and herself; Peter Doocy reports.
It’s been two years since the end of the Obama presidency and in that span, the mainstream Democratic Party has made an extreme shift to the far left. In 2019 the Democrats have put their weight behind increased taxes, universal health care, open borders, and third-trimester abortions.

How do we account for this radical trend?

Great insight by Bill Bennett. Hope this lunacy endshttps://www.foxnews.com/opinion/bill-bennett-democrats-have-made-a-sharp-left-turn-heres-whats-behind-it
What a load of shit when it comes to open borders. The democrats could far better secure the border than building a fucking stupid wall and do it with a fraction of the funds. Bennett surprises me, didn't think he was such a lying shithead.

I do believe all those countries believe in capitalism.
And they all have socialized medicine and it made none of them a socialist country. You are right, all of the European countries he mentioned practice capitalism.

Is there some reason the ignorant conservatives in this country seem to think we will be socialist if we have UHC? Seems you understand it why don't you explain it to your fucking stupid conservative friends?

It's your undeserved elitist snobbery that is most endearing.

LOL It appears your Party is being exposed as the racists they always were, but they have tried to pretend they weren't. Why? Simply, because they know if the cat got out of the bag, black Americans would abandon the Democrat Party.
