Surveys were conducted using the Ipsos KnowledgePanel®, a representative online panel of U.S. adults (18+), from November 28 to December 11, 2018.

This was long before google-eyes released the true communist agenda of this insanity.

Just because a bill has a fluffy feel-good title people have a tendency to agree w/ it when in fact the title of the bill has literally nothing to do w/ the contents. See the patriot act.

They also made a point not to say which party was supporting the proposals. So it seems in general terms most people like the ideas.

No, it is disingenuous as none of the insanity was included in that little poll.

Do you like freedom

Yes

The patriot act will protect freedom. Will you support patriot act?

Of course

Communist agenda?
What do think those are magic words that make a valid argument ?

There isn't anything that is remotely Communist in the Green New Deal.

Um...


Here is what the liberals have been up to this week.

Here is what Democrats/commies Cortez, Feinstein, Warren, Harris, and various other enemies of the state have been up to this past week:

Full term abortion.

Infanticide.

Black face.

KKK.

Absolute government take over of healthcare.

Shutdown private insurance companies.

Support for Maduro.

Remove "So help me God" from the oath of office.

Teach kindergarteners that there are fifteen genders.

Upgrade or replace every building, home, factory, and apartment in US for state-of-the-art energy efficiency.

Build out high-speed rail to replace flying. Perhaps rails across the oceans.

Ensure that all Green New Deal jobs are union jobs that pay prevailing wages and hire local.

The United States government will provide every single American with a job with “family-sustaining wages, family, and medical leave, vacations, and a pension.

A Green New Deal that will give free college or trade schools for every American.

A Green New Deal that will provide safe, affordable, adequate housing for every American citizen.
There ya go

SCARY, SCARY SOCIALISM
Paul Krugman
on how Republicans are dusting off the socialist boogeyman.
New York Times
In 1961, America faced what conservatives considered a mortal threat: calls for a national health insurance program covering senior citizens. In an attempt to avert this awful fate, the American Medical Association launched what it called Operation Coffee Cup, a pioneering attempt at viral marketing.​

Here’s how it worked: Doctors’ wives (hey, it was 1961) were asked to invite their friends over and play them a recording in which Ronald Reagan explained that socialized medicine would destroy American freedom. The housewives, in turn, were supposed to write letters to Congress denouncing the menace of Medicare.​
Those Ronald Reagan recordings, if you haven’t heard them, are kind of amazing—in a sort of Joe McCarthy, holy s#!t way.

Over the course of several years in the late 50s and 60s, Reagan did a kind of extended road show, working on what amounted to a stage act for conservatism. He tried it out at factories, and at civic organizations, and at county fairs. And by the time he was ready to run for governor of California, he had the patter down well enough to make giving someone a dime for cup of coffee sound like high treason. When you think that Republicans today couldn’t go any lower, look up Reagan’s recordings and see where they started.
Obviously the strategy didn’t work; Medicare not only came into existence, but it became so popular that these days Republicans routinely (and falsely) accuse Democrats of planning to cut the program’s funding. But the strategy — claiming that any attempt to strengthen the social safety net or limit inequality will put us on a slippery slope to totalitarianism — endures.​
And so it was that Donald Trump, in his State of the Union address, briefly turned from his usual warnings about scary brown people to warnings about the threat from socialism.
What do Trump’s people, or conservatives in general, mean by “socialism”? The answer is, it depends.​
Krugman gives a good baseline definition of what Republicans consider socialism now — which isn’t much different from the rant Reagan was selling fifty-some years ago. But don’t worry, by 2020 socialism will encompass breathing. Hey! Did you pay for that air, commie?

Doctors are dumb fucks. I got into an auguement with a medical doctor and he said I am a practicing physician and you can't talk to me that way! I said there is too much practicing going around here which shut him up.
