  1. See the statement at the bottom of the post 👆 As for his taxes... (there are several books you should read on trump & this subject) its quite complicated & nuanced. In the past, trump has been penalized by the IRS. We also have his businesses where his named is used/leased by other proprietors. Trump has also used exemptions in failed businesses that, while didn’t absolve him, spread the liability around. He’s also reasonably borrowed his actual net worth probably 10x’s over. Meaning borrowed money is handled differently than earned capital. We must consider his numerous off-shore holdings. The IRS doesn’t have jurisdiction in those instances, which makes the trumps case suspicious. You also have trump breaking up many of his companies in the early 80’s to avoid the IRS. We also have the markets. There’s just so many incremental roadblocks for the IRS. They have fairly strict rules & guidelines they must follow in order to protect privacy laws. They almost have to be more than certain bcus they are the last line of defense in internal revenue investigations. I honestly haven’t even scratched the surface. Donnie’s had his issues in the past. He’s simply never paid a crippling penalty. But it’s quite obvious he’s hiding or avoid much more than we know. Otherwise... why the mystery? Besides, we know a ton already from Deutsche Bank and they yet to go on the record. It’s complex, layered, & intricate.
  2. Correct. We don’t live in a pure socialist society. You’re talking about something else. Correct. Yes & no. Our society isn’t a strict meritocracy. You know this. This is why you rail against everything that isn’t.
  3. Social democracy is a political, social and economic philosophy within political and economic democracy.[2] As a policy regime, it is described by academics as advocating economic and social interventions to promote social justice within the framework of a liberal democratic polity and a capitalist-oriented mixed economy. It’s not all-encompassing, but its mostly who we are today.
  4. You already exist in a (largely) social democracy.
  5. You’re right its not from the founders mouth... its from their website.
  6. Strike 5... Battle still emerges for congressional access.
  7. I don’t think you’re an idiot. I think you’re a really smart person w/ progressive & societal angst.
  8. It doesn’t matter if Jeffrey Dahmer started BLM... this is their mission statement.
  9. No, it wouldn’t. Combined 60 million people live b/t NY/Cal. More than 330 million people in the continental US. You just prefer counting delegates over 1 person 1 vote. It’s okay to admit it.
  10. From the BLM website... About #BlackLivesMatter was founded in 2013 in response to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin’s murderer. Black Lives Matter Foundation, Inc is a global organization in the US, UK, and Canada, whose mission is to eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes. By combating and countering acts of violence, creating space for Black imagination and innovation, and centering Black joy, we are winning immediate improvements in our lives.
