Strict socialism doesn't work. Unregulated capitalism doesn't work.

Some blend of the two are the best you can accomplish. Yes, it is good that the hard working and the more creative can achieve greater rewards. But as HW said, the extent of the disparity is of concern. Especially when the "rich" start having most of their capital involved in financial rather than industrial areas. And that is what happens.

This hurts the middle class, decreasing their buying power thus hurting demand and the overall economy.

Presidents do NOT create jobs! Seventy percent of all business done in this country is done by small-business. During the Obimbo administration they saw the biggest failure rate in modern day history. That is not by chance, that is a result of over-regulation and taxation.
Bullshit


Each one of these little blurbs is demonstrably false.
They demonstrate a complete lack of understanding of how the economy of the United States works.
Such a complete lack of understanding is an important component of right wing support, with only the racists they couldn't win, they need to be able to fool the morons to put together a victory.

I decided it isn't coincidence that red pills and blue pills were assigned those particular colors.

What on earth does your question have to do with my comments in post #5?

LOL..Trump would have you ruled directly by the wealthy 1% w/o even the pretense of a duly elected representative government in a New York minute.
He'a already dismantling the regulations that protected the environment and consumers from the excesses of corporations.

Name just 10 of those 1,000 regulations and how they will help improve, or just sustain, the quality of life or living standards of the average working American, just TEN.
Are you REALLY so silly as to believe "what's good for the corporations is good for America?"

How in the fuck would that "give the control back to the people?"
Because licenses and regulations end up forcing the smaller competitors out of the market, thereby insulating the larger competitors from competition...Big Corps love regulations....Big Corp CEOs are the ones that make up the 1% your tribe keeps wailing about......

The corporations will use that money more efficiently than the government because they EARNED it. Tell me who makes more money on a gallon of gasoline? The local, state and federal governments or the oil company?

Hmmm.............you may be spot on.

Republican are assigned the color red and Democrats are assigned the color blue.

Obama clearly favors blue:

If there’s a blue pill and a red pill, and the blue pill is half the price of the red pill and works just as well, why not pay half price for the thing that’s going to make you well?” - Barak Obama

The red pill and its opposite, the blue pill, are popular cultural symbols representing the choice between:

*Knowledge, freedom and the (sometimes painful) truth of reality (red pill)

*Falsehood, security and the blissful ignorance of illusion (blue pill)
