Yep, you say the word socialism here and people think of communism. The narrow mindedness of the people here is killing us. I even argued with someone about this, gave them a whole article about how a democratic socialism would work here and they still just thought "communism". :BangHead:

You have public schools

Police

Army.... and healthcare for soldiers

Social Services e.g. child protection

Street cleaning and rubbish disposal

Libraries

Etc etc et fuckin c

But because these guys have been force fed Health Insurance Company propaganda from birth, then to add public healthcare to that list would be...... SOCIALISM boooo! Hissssss!

Obama got attacked for putting mustard on his burger (unamerican), wearing a tan suit (unbecoming of a president) amongst other things.

If there are any right wingers on the boards, it'd be interesting to hear how they explain trump and his increasingly erratic behaviours, decisions and statements or what he's doing to the country via the Senate and exec orders.

How could you honestly argue that he's trying to make a positive change to America and the rest of the world?

Quite frankly I wouldn't even bother ......... if you think you're gonna get an ounce of sense out of Right or far Left these days your reaching in vain.

Quite frankly I've never been happier to be Centre, only the loons inhabit the fringes and the fringes have become bigger than the middle ground these days.

The ongoing immigration debate:

Trump doesn't know how Diversity Visa Lottery program and chain immigration works.

https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics ... mmigration

The moron actually can't distinguish between legal and illegal immigrantion.

And there were people cheering for him in the crowd as he was blatantly lying about immigration rules.

If there were a Lord of Stupidity somewhere in the skies, he/she/it would be proud.

Hilarious.

I'm not one for all this Left wing clap trap, picket line and stamp our feet like children having a tantrum ........... but in this case I say go for it.

Trump has proven himself unfit, unfit as a human being to be President, I thought the rousing nonsense would be dampened down when he took office but he's just a mess, completely unfit to hold office and has edged toward and courted the Far Right way to much for anything I'm comfortable with.

Brexit or no Brexit he should be told to fk off from coming here.

He has no class or dignity to be visiting our shores on a state visit.

He accepted support during the campaign from the KKK without bothering to condemn them

I pointed this out to you at the time and you shrugged it off like it was nothing

Now you're not happy that he's cosied up to the far right?

There is a difference though to trying to gain votes and what you do once in office.

Take UK politicians for e.g, they make all sorts of promises in campaigns but once elected they do none of it.

10x as many murders by gun in Ireland as in the UK. In fact, there's a smaller difference in gun related deaths between Ireland the US than there is between Ireland and the UK. That's a very interesting stat and tells me they should be doing a lot better over in the so-called "Emerald Isle".

Good point. Everyone used to say that no-one did anything about guns when it was just black folk getting killed. But that's clearly bollocks. They don't give a shit about anyone or anything as long as they can legally own assault rifles, machine guns and rocket launchers before they're old enough to buy beer.
