The problem is also that loyal democrats (God knows why!!!!) like you try to pretend that your party is something more than a different flavour of the same damn ice cream!
By pretending that the democratic party isn't corrupt and undemocratic (it's the dems who have the SUPERdelegates let's not forget!) you act as enablers for the republicans who only have to point at the fact that a lifetime political hack like Nancy Pelosi is somehow worth more than $100 million dollars! And nobody asks HOW or WHY!

And all of this lobbing back and forth goes on while the planet burns and the only thing both governing parties in the US agree on is that existing wars should not be allowed to end (look at Pentagon right now refusing the president's orders to pull troops out of Syria and Afghanistan) and more wars for profit are needed...on to Venezuela and seizing oil, gold and diamonds...once the puppet Guido Regime has been installed!

No way of getting past the fact that US politics is a shit show and any candidates who oppose new wars and want the old ones to end are smeared as Kremlin agents in the retreated McCarthyist smear of being on the same side of an issue as RT or other Russian media sources! And this is mostly being done by Democrats and their media allies as they side with evil militarists and even pardoned convicted war criminals like Trump's new man in Venezuela: Elliot Abrams!

Well, looky at you---all self-righteous and freely assigning blame. Do you really think Democrats are oblivious to our policy/platform/leader's flaws? Get real.
Do you really think we are that naive? Apparently so, but we really do GET IT.
Democrats understand that politics is dirty business--always has been. We understand that some (maybe most) of our candidates are far from perfect. Some are downright miscreants. Do you think we blissfully voted for Clinton because she was pure as the driven snow? Get over yourself.

Politicians lie. ALL OF THEM. Presidents (both parties) LIE. All of them. For all sorts of reasons. This country is swirling the bowl and everyone agrees that there is work to be done, but until we bring in some new recruits--some new ideas and solutions we're stuck. 2020 is coming. I'm trying to be the optimist.

Back to little Sarah Country Fried Sanders. I thought she was stepping down and yet.....there she is BIG as life wearing her string of pearls (AGAIN) today. Does she SLEEP in those pearls? Do they have magic powers?

Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her 300 pound hypocritical pig father know as much about God as I know about string theory. VERY LITTLE.

Capitalist are thieves, lets see a Capitlist SUPPLYS a Good or Service at a price negotiated with the person purchasing the Good or Service.

If you don't like the price don't buy it, find a different provider that will supply it at the price YOU are willing to pay. Capitalism isn't stealing, Capitalism is the ONLY viable economic system.

If prices are too low the company goes out of business, if the prices are to High the company goes out of Business because people cannot afford it. (This is what happened to the US Car industry in 2007)

Socialist STEAL from those that work and Give it to those in Power
There has never been a call ever in this country for socialism, doesn't exist now and it won't exist in the future only if the nazi wannabees get to define it themselves but by the real definition it never has it been here nor have I ever heard someone in my whole lifetime say they wanted it. It's the fastest way to find out the ignorance of a right wing supporter,.

It may be happening now..even in America! The problem is that the superich will go to their hidden bunkers or secret island estates when mobs with pitchforks and torches come for them:
Soak the rich? Americans say go for it
Surveys are showing overwhelming support for raising taxes on top earners.

Surveys are showing overwhelming support for raising taxes on top earners, including a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll released Monday that found 76 percent of registered voters believe the wealthiest Americans should pay more in taxes. A recent Fox News survey showed that 70 percent of Americans favor raising taxes on those earning over $10 million — including 54 percent of Republicans.
The numbers suggest the political ground upon which the 2020 presidential campaign will be fought is shifting in dramatic ways, reflecting the rise in inequality in the United States and growing concerns in the electorate about the fairness of the American system.​
“There is a deep wellspring in terms of perception of unfairness in the economy that’s been tapped into here that either didn’t exist five years ago or existed and had not had a chance to be expressed,” said Michael Cembalest, chairman of market and investment strategy at JPMorgan Asset Management who has studied the latest tax proposals. “This is quite a moment in American economic history where all of a sudden in a matter of months this thing has kind of exploded like this.”​
Even proposals that sound radical poll well. A plan from first-term Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) to slap a 70 percent marginal rate on income earned over $10 million clocked in at 59 percent support in a recent Hill/HarrisX poll.​
The new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll, conducted Feb. 1-2, found that 61 percent favor a proposal like the “wealth tax” recently laid out by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) that would levy a 2 percent tax on those with a net worth over $50 million and 3 percent on those worth over $1 billion. Just 20 percent opposed the idea. The poll surveyed 1,993 registered voters and carries a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percent.​
It showed 45 percent favored a plan like that laid out by Ocasio-Cortez while 32 percent opposed it.​
Democrats are facing some backlash from conservatives, corporate America and moderates like former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz over their embrace of higher tax rates on the rich and corporations. Shultz recently called Warren’s wealth tax “ridiculous.” Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a potential moderate Democratic candidate in 2020, likened it to policies in socialist Venezuela.​
But Republicans who think they can use the proposals as a political weapon in 2020 to paint Democrats as wild-eyed, tax-and-spend liberals — a winning strategy since Walter Mondale called for higher taxes in 1984 and got crushed — may find it challenging.​
“There is certainly an appetite for more taxes on the rich, though the threshold matters,” said Karlyn Bowman, a polling expert at the American Enterprise Institute. “There is also some support for redistributing income.”​
Historical trend data from Gallup show that the percentage of people describing their taxes as too high peaked around 1970 at 69 percent when the top marginal rate was around 70 percent, though the effective rate after deductions and other tax-avoidance strategies was much lower.​
The numbers mostly began to decline along with the top marginal rates during the Reagan tax-cut era of the 1980s. Last year, 48 percent described their own taxes as “about right” compared with 45 percent who said they were “too high,” helping lay the groundwork for Democratic proposals to raise top marginal rates and institute things like a wealth tax to help pay for big, expensive proposals like a “Green New Deal” or “Medicare for All.“​
Some Democrats piling into the 2020 race are now competing to get further to the left on boosting taxes on the rich. After Warren’s wealth tax announcement, likely candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who bucked recent political tradition with calls for tax hikes in his 2016 campaign, unveiled a proposal to increase the number of wealthy Americans subject to the estate tax.​
Those who aren’t calling for big new taxes — including Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), who prefers refundable tax credits — are facing some heat on the left as insufficiently progressive.​
In an interview, Warren said polling numbers suggesting fairly wide public support for plans like hers to tax the rich did not come as any shock.​
“It’s not surprising to me at all. Washington has been working so long for the billionaire class that people around here cannot imagine crossing them,” she said. “It never even becomes a topic of conversation. The ultra-millionaires have gotten so much from this country that it’s not unreasonable to ask them to give back a little bit.”​
She added that she would feel no pressure to tack back to the middle on taxes should she win the Democratic nomination. “That’s just wrong. Why on earth would I do that? It makes no sense. I think I’ve already lost the billionaire vote.”​
In 2016, then-candidate Donald Trump tapped into the populist moment by railing against Wall Street and promising to deliver blue-collar manufacturing jobs back to the industrial Midwest. He also has a history with the idea of a wealth tax.​
In 1999, while contemplating a presidential bid on the Reform Party ticket, Trump proposed a one-time 14.25 percent tax on those with over $10 million in wealth in order to entirely wipe out the national debt.​
"By my calculations, 1 percent of Americans, who control 90 percent of the wealth in this country, would be affected by my plan,” Trump said at the time, sounding very much like Warren does today.​
Trump has long since abandoned that idea, focusing instead on wedge issues like immigration to target voters concerned about their jobs and wages as well as those worried about demographic changes in the country.​
But he may have vulnerability on the tax issue heading into 2020 given his biggest legislative accomplishment as president so far was a $2 trillion tax cut that showered most of its benefits on corporate America while offering much smaller reductions to middle-class taxpayers.​
Republicans believe the plan will ultimately lead to consistently faster growth and higher wages. But for now, polls consistently show the tax cut faring poorly. The latest POLITICO/Morning Consult poll found that 33 percent said the bill helped the economy, 41 percent said it hurt or made no difference and 25 percent said they didn’t know or had no opinion. Also in the poll, 65 percent said the nation was on the wrong track and 56 percent disapproved of Trump’s job as president.​
The top issue for voters in the poll was the economy, including taxes, wages, unemployment and spending, with 27 percent citing it as their top concern. Security issues, including the border, came in second at 23 percent.​
For me, I'm just waiting till Howard Schultz gets stopped at his next big campaign rally and gets carried off and dumped into a pot of boiling water!
Heres the deal, it can all be done with tax law,. It is how all the wealth is going to the top now and it can be changed easily to have it go to the people who actually do the work and to the poor to give them some sort of life for working their asses off. Simple as pie. Since the last 40 years everything has gone to the top with massive increases of wealth going to the already wealthy and not one dime extra and in fact a loss for the American worker. So my proposal to be fair, is to turn it around totally for the next 40 years and all new wealth going to the people who actually work for a living , that include the working poor that get shit. These wealthy pigs don't earn it, deserve it or need it. And all you suckers that's real capitalism.
