Hi. I am willing to debate if it isn't too scary. I'm a registered democrat and I think we should embrace socialism.

Thoughts?

I'll bite.
Why do you think socialism trumps democracy or the representative republic that our federal government was actually designed to be (we don't have anything close to what the founders intended)? We already have socialism. Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).... are all socialist programs.

Let's get this out of the way first. I believe that any money I earn belongs to me. I believe that I have a responsibility to pay taxes for those things that the federal government is mandated by the US Constitution to do. I do not believe that charity is one of the things that is or should be a responsibility of the federal government. I believe that charity should be a voluntary act left to the individual.

People do not understand that they do not know what is good for them. The government does. Please just let the president handle things from here on out and he will tell you what is good and what is bad. Trust him.

Hey, ding dongs! Name one instance, at anytime any where that socialism has worked??? You won't be able to. Because it doesn't work!! There is no incentive for anyone to bust their ass because it just gets taken away and given to other people. If you know your history, which I'm sure you don't, the pilgrims tried a socialistic approach with their crops and almost starved to death. Only when everyone was RESPONSIBLE for their own food supply did they prosper. That's why this country is in so much debt. There are more takers than givers.

But what about the poor? It's everyone's responsibility to take care of them. They are helpless. We need more taxes so we can give more to the poor. They should earn at least $50,000 per year in entitlements. Tax free.

Also, we should give amnesty to all illegal immigrants immediately and give them the same entitlements too.

Plus free healthcare for all Americans paid for through more taxes on those who have jobs.

Anyone making more than $100,000 per year should have to give up most of their income and investments including property to help the poor and minorities and immigrants.

. Thanks for the clarification. I figured that's what u meant but I needed to vent. Im pretty sure the guy you were responding too was being sarcastic. At least I hope he was!! All of this squishy liberal crap makes me sick. I wish more women like me felt the same. They fall for that crap all the time! Makes us all look stupid.
