        Same as the last two years.
        Liberal tears continue to flow
        Leftist bitch, moan and attack people on internet web sites
        Democrats continue the never ending of wasteful investigations
        SJW will never stop the petty outrage brigade
        Propaganda news networks will continue to find ways to divide Americans for ratings

                    If the Democrats have their way, nothing will get done for Americans, everything will be done for illegals, the hunt for Red October will continue full throttle, while the country keeps falling into ruins.

                          Every and each leader in the world, especially based upon the western presidential system, has staged on fluid-like dromology. It's very unstable. Therefore, they will be more likely and have to resort to Terror in people. It's very stupid idea but very effective. Luckily, the communication has made people connected to each other and their wisdom is well developed compared to before. ... Hmm... anyway, the leaders should desert elitism but embrace empathy. Otherwise they will go home and taste bitter macaroni.

                            The year ahead. You spent two years chasing the female booger monster while you allowed a murderous deranged thug to rule america because you are more afraid of vaginas than rapists. Now, I formally charged the president with attempted murder for mob rule " get horseface request to the American public. All while I petition Congress every day to charge the algorithm holders with treason.

                                    All we're going to see from Democrats is endless investigations, resistance and obstruction at the expense of taxpayers. Very little will get done and I pray all of the criminals of the Deep State, the ones that truly want to destroy America for their own gain, wind up in GITMO. For those of you that still believe that MSM, CNN, & MSNBC is telling you the truth, and those who suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome, I will pray for you. Wishing everyone a Happy New Year with infinite blessings and love.

                                        A Conversation With A Trump Supporter
                                        I Asked If He Ever Researched Anything Trump Has Said Publicly
                                        To Verify Accuracy Or Truth
                                        And His Reply Says It All:
                                        “All Those Supposedly Fact Checking Internet Sites Are Controlled By Liberals
                                        You Can’t Depend On Them For The Truth”
                                        I Asked Where He Got His News, He Replied
                                        "I Get all The Conspiracy Theories From Fox And Friends
                                        And Limbaugh On The Radio Because Everything Else Is Fake News".
                                        I Ended The Conversation Wondering How Many Millions
                                        Of Voters Had The Same Beliefs
                                        So They Stay Uninformed, Just The Way They Like It

                                            @Marseilles Vieux No man is bad by nature; but when we say that a man is bad, we are referring to a quality that seems to be habituated in that person. Now, it is the job of philosophers to give a strict definition of good and bad, and I am in no position to give one. However, I can tell you that destruction and deprivation are examples of what is bad, and creation and preservation are examples of what is good. If a man tends toward destruction, we say he is bad. If he tends toward creation, we say he is good.

                                              Did a British male aristocrat create outer space as their new identity, so that the game of snooker can't detect that the aristocrat is trying to create a formula that will force all American mothers to be financially dependent on the aristocrat?

                                              Do bankers and trophy wives preserve the sexiness of cigars and three piece suits, by getting the UN to persuade all planets and galaxies to share a person's spiritual reflection on trees and sunlight?

                                              Does the faction of an aristocracy create trees and water, as a way to tell capitalist American women that other parts of the same aristocracy are trying to teach socialism how to embody the final image of sexiness?

You know how many people groups he has helped out since the 70s? And Obama was the racist, and the racism that followed shows how much of a racist he was.

                                                  Socialism:

                                                  A political and economic theory of social organization that advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.

                                                    @Marseilles Vieux Well yes, that's what my point is. Social democracy is great, really. Socialism, not so much. For example, where I live, we have universal healthcare and education access without having to individually pay. Poor and lower middle class also get a scholarship, and so do students that show very high potential (top 3% of the best students).
                                                    Everything else, for the most part, is capitalism as usual. Companies competing in a free European market with around 450 million consumers.

                                                    This system works - we have lower debt to GDP than the USA and it's falling for the past 3 years. We had 20% debt in 2008 and it rose to 80 during the crisis and is now dropping by around 5% annually (around 65% right now, compared to 95% in the USA).
                                                    Things are rather great. We are also very environmentally friendly, take great care of our nature. Tap water is cleaner than freaking Evian, even in the capital city.

                                                    All in all, I love it where I live :) Europe in general is quite a great place to live, but for some reason, we don't cherish what we have.

                                                    filip1491 unless the system pays fo too much then the system will collapse on itself.

                                                    I gotta say I love Ocasio Cortez and people like her, but really, you have to also think of the other side of socialism too. I love in a European country that has a social democratic system, but it used to be socialist. Now, social democracy is great, I can really recommend it. Socialism, however, not so much.
                                                    The problem with socialism is that there is no incentive to progress... It works in theory, but in practice, there is little progress in socialism. In my country (Slovenia nowadays, used to be Yugoslavia), we have experience with this. You see, a company develops a washing machine in 1960 and it will still produce it in 1990. Same with cars, chemicals, clothes etc.
                                                    After a long period of time, you find out that your country is ridiculously underdeveloped in comparison with other countries. We started out with around 80% of Austria's GDP in 1945 and ended with around 20% in 1990, that's how bad it went.

                                                    Now, there is also a positive side to it, so to speak. Everyone could afford a decent appartment or house. Everyone had access to healthcare without. Everyone had a job and so on.

                                                    My advice? Try getting politicians that stand for social democracy in. In Slovenia right now, life is seriously great, and we're not even a rich country, around average in the EU.

                                                  Y’all need to get off of Rourke’s nuts. It’s annoying how they don’t even mention how Bernie polls higher than him against Trump.

                                                  Want to know how Trump won? I believe it’s because of how he lied about wanting to help the working class. That’s what Democrats ought to do along with switching towards a progressive ideology. Seriously, why is it either or? Nowadays it seems like they have their heads so far up their own asses that they are willing to drop the ball AGAIN and support people like Biden because he’s a familiar face.
