What do you think it will take for the right wingers to stop sucking corporate and uber wealthy D and start getting as angry as the left is about what is causing the real problems in this country, wealth inequality and the rich basically controlling most of government to screw everybody else/

Even when things go to shit in their neighborhoods and things start affecting them, they still don't realize it. What do they do, they blame illegals even though that has absolutely nothing to do with their struggles while constantly cheering on giving the rich even more tax breaks and sticking it to the working man

is there any hope for these people or will they just continue screwing themselves and everybody else because they are not very smart and easily propagandized?

You've succumbed to neo-Marxist talking points. You're the left wing's equivalent of a loyal Fox News fanatic. There is a lot of populist vs. corporatist division within our political system right now (regardless of party affiliation), but hyper-partisans like you cannot see the world except through right wing vs. left wing talking points.

When your country is getting it's ass kicked in every metric and sliding down the lists of first world nations in education, health care, happiness, freedom, poverty and every other category it is time to check your system and see where you could do better, not bury your head in the sand and spout off "it is not our fault!!".
When your middle class is stagnant and your wealth is flowing to the 1% faster than any other industrialized nation it is time to see where we could improve, not shrug our shoulders and dismiss the facts as fake news.
When your unemployment is in the 3% range and wages are not even keeping up with a 2.9% inflation rate and productivity is the highest it has been in history you need to check and see what you are missing.
And saying that American workers are doing better than rag pickers in Mali does not address the problem.

Oh wow, a deflection, how shocking from people who have no actual argument. wow, how original, the "marxist" line of bullshit.

Anyway, we all know you just flood the forum with nothing but corporate cock sucking bullshit and you are one of the propagandist

Anyway, this above, you will just reply with your usual line of bullshit and lies

Hmm, I believe you just posted "please don't derail my thread" in another thread and here you are doing the only thing you know how to do, derail threads.

it's OK, we all know you have no arguments to anything, ever

Except that it is actually neo-Marxist, inherently, to continuously bang the drum about social and economic class warfare being the root of all problems. I mean that's literally what the rich-vs.-poor rhetoric you're spouting is. How would a self-avowed neo-Marxist-oriented person describe the problems with the country any differently than the way you do?
Anyway, we all know you just flood the forum with nothing but corporate cock sucking bullshit.
Anyone who points out how your hyper-partisan ad nauseam your prattle is instantly becomes a "corporate cock-sucker," yeah, we know. That's the kind of shit that justifies describing your crap as neo-Marxist. Case in point.

Ever notice, as I have, the left are a bunch of sniveling wimps? When Obama was President, all was well with them. We didn't hear a peep out of them about the millions on welfare, the millions collecting food stamps, the businesses leaving America, because the taxes were repressive and so were the regulations.

The left attack corporations, claiming they are evil, but fail to see that it's businesses that do the hiring, give people jobs and benefits, and bonuses. Sure, the corporations are in it to make money. But, they often use that money to expand the business and hire even more workers. Those at the top may make an enormous amount of money, but if they are doing a piss-poor job, they can be fired and have been.

Real problem? Yes, there are real problems, but I don't see the left addressing them. Our education system is a travesty and more and more money is poured into it and the system doesn't improve. That is the leftists position. Throw more money at a problem and the problem is solved. Except it isn't.

I agree with that.

When your middle class is stagnant and your wealth is flowing to the 1% faster than any other industrialized nation it is time to see where we could improve, not shrug our shoulders and dismiss the facts as fake news.
Countries you've idealized around here have more billionaires per capita than the U.S. (e.g., Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Switzerland). But the U.S. has the most billionaires by far, and most of their net worth is in the stock market, so this "wealth flows fastest to the richest" when the stock market is roaring (regardless of who's President and regardless of whether you're a partisan Democrat fanboy or a partisan Republican fanboy or a non-partisan).

If wealth in the form of ownership of companies is concentrating among a small number of people and everyone thinks that eventually that wealth needs to spread back out, then it will eventually require a wealth or inheritance tax, in all likelihood, and as several economists who favor these kinds of taxes have pointed out, there needs to be enormously greater international cooperation regarding cross-border financial assets in order to effectively establish a redistributive tax system, because otherwise countries acting in isolation chase wealth out of their countries, to places like Monaco or San Marino or Switzerland or Luxembourg, where tons of the ultra-rich already reside and stash their wealth.
