    This is what our education system is producing. The squad?? More like the gaggle.

    Democrats and progressive always have there eyes set on what the world could be like.

    Theirs is a world of what if’s.

    What if socialism worked...

    What if managers where not corrupted...

    What if... the world was some how...

    AOC received only 15,897 votes in the June 28, 2018 Democrat primary. One molecule in an ocean of American voters.

    Seriously, lads, we (you) should stop caring what this woman thinks. She is nothing more than a creation of the kooky, faux media. We should stop feeding her with our attention. We should stop rewarding the faux media with our clicks and our views.

    In the end, we - not "the squad" - are the real problem, for it is we who give gravitas to these nutty women. We are also the solution.

    Don't click. Don't watch. Don't share.

    Yep... In fact, socialism seems to inevitably lead to its very opposite, Dystopia.

    Under a free market capitalist economy the GDP can grow at least 3 or 4 percent per year. That means wealth in real measurable terms can double in about 20 or 30 years. This means things like the sewing machine replaces needles and thimbles, backhoes replace the shovel, the truck replaced the ox cart. Sometimes this is hard to see because it does not happen all at once. I have seen a lot of progress in my life and if we don't screw up there will be a huge increase in wealth in the next few decades. One thing I am sure of is none of this massive increase in material wealth is due to socialism.

    I am reminded of how, a few scant months ago, Francis "Beto" O'Rourke was the next coming of JFK... :whistling:

    What if smart, hard-working, productive people were willing to work in order to provide for people who sit around all day and do nothing.... that is the essence of socialism.

    Let them starve. The peeps of Venezuela are the one who gave up their guns, elected Commie dictators, and now must suffer the consequences.
