Why wouldnt the creation of the police state be called a socialist takeover? That's what it would be.

SOCIALISM elevates individual liberties and makes everyone much FREE-ER (gotta get in the FREE word)

So says Joe Stalin.

Unfortunately, we live in a country in which a great number of individuals now want the government to provide and take care of them... all the while ignoring the fact that once the government does so, it does so at the expense of limiting their freedom and liberty.

Yes, putting the word 'democratic' in front of the word socialism wont make things any less socialist no matter how many times Bernie says it isnt the same thing.

I’ll remember that when Steve King runs as a Democratic Fascist.

I'll wait to hear someone tell me how this doesn't say what I think it does.

:rofl:


just wondering: all those other things the left DENIES/DENIES and then DENIES... how many of them are just bald-faced covers of lies?

Yep. That herd of cats is out of the bag. Gonna be nearly impossible to put that back in. But I'd bet Beto will give it a try in a week or less. He's gonna try and reel that one back in and lie about what he meant, but it isn't going to work. There is no one better at tossing up some grass to see which way the wind blows.

Just heard a guy say that 'the left is misunderstood'. I wonder, KITNooga, is that because they constantly lie?

I read somewhere there are over 375,000,000 guns and rifles in the United States. I suppose those are the ones that are registered. Probably quite a few which aren't.

Automatic weapons are already illegal. As is murder.

Taking away weapons, en masse, does not solve the problem of 5 or 6 nut jobs who contemplate or carry out mass shootings.

The cry of "We need to do something" should be 'We need to do something that will work." What that is I don't know. I am thinking no one knows.

Maybe it is the cost of doing business in a country as large as ours. Hate saying that, but every 'solution' that I see would not have prevented any of the recent mass shootings.
