  1. Why do Socialist Liberals like Bernie Sanders push Globalist Healthcare upon Americans, when that isn't what we want as a whole country? Sure some do, but most don't. It's because the Democrats do whatever they want, and get away with it! Why does the middle Class in this country suffer so much, and is hard to keep up bills wise? Well when an extra portion of your paycheck goes towards paying for healthcare for other people, that's part of your answer right there. When Obama was president, and the house and senate was controlled by the Democratic Party, people on welfare, and food stamps went up dramatically, and jobs were hard to find. The Democrats will keep forcing things upon Americans, weather we like it or not.
  2. Why are the Democrats considered socialists? Obviously, Bernie Sanders is a self-described socialist, but he was an independent for years until he decided to run for the presidency. Obamacare isn't really universal health care considering the fact that there are millions of uninsured Americans. Universal would mean that everyone has coverage. Further Obamacare forces Americans to buy their own health care. It is not given to Americans for free like the typical universal health care country. The poorest get Obamacare for free, but that doesn't change anything because they already had free health care through Medicaid before Obamacare. More people qualify for Medicaid since the rules have been changed, so with Obamacare there has been an expansion of Medicaid, but that doesn't mean that Obamacare is suddenly universal health care. Furthermore, Bernie Sanders ran in the primary promising to bring true universal health care to America. That is proof enough that Obamacare is not this gigantic government give-away. As a matter of fact, millions of Americans are stressing out by the large increases in health insurance premiums that they are facing, and that is because Obamacare has been an absolute failure in fixing the system and lowering health care premiums like Obama said it would. Hillary Clinton is in opposition to Bernie's universal health care plan, and Hillary said pretty clearly that America is not Denmark in response to Bernie's ideas. With such a strong contrast between Hillary and Bernie, why are they lumped together? Obviously, the definition of socialism is what matters. Originally communism and socialism meant the same entering the 19th century, where it was a system whereby everyone had a completely equal piece of the pie. No rich people allowed. Then, a distinction happened between the two terms. The end result was the same where everyone shares the wealth equally, but how to get there is what distinguished the two terms. Communism meant armed struggle to get there while socialism meant you got there peacefully. Nowadays many refer to socialism as any redistribution of wealth from the rich to the poor. But by that standard, America has been a socialist country for many decades since the rich have been paying for the education of poor schoolchildren. What it comes down to is that historically, the Democrats will say just about anything to get votes, and this means that they constantly do not live up to what they preach when they are running for office. See TheDemocratPartyIsAFraud.com for many, many examples of this. Thus, the reality is that while there are some who think like Bernie in the Democrat Party, the Democrat Party's embrace of Obamacare in opposition to the true universal health care Bernie proposed demonstrates that the labeling of the Democrat Party as a socialist party is wrong. What justification is there for labeling the Democrat Party as a socialist party at this point?
  3. Convince me that the wage gap is real. In the first presidential debate between Trump and Clinton, when i heard Clinton say "We will fight for equal pay for equal work" I threw my phone downward from my couch hitting the table so hard that the screen shattered and its now completely useless. This is because in that moment I was so enraged that I couldnt control my destructive urges. Why? Because the wage gap has been disproven time and time again, by economists, and even a feminists who did a full economic study said "we cannot find the smoking gun" Women who work as a mcdonalds order taker in maryland recive $8.74 per hour Men who work as a mcdonalds order taker in maryland recive $8.74 per hour Source: McDonald's Salaries in Maryland Job Title McDonald's Salary Location Cashier - Hourly $7.95/hr Maryland, US Crew Member - Hourly $8.12/hr Maryland, US Mcdonalds Crew Member - Hourly $8.71/hr Maryland, US McDonalds Cashier - Hourly $8.74/hr Maryland, US Notice how it doesn't specify a difference in pay for different genders? For those of you that will argue that the annual salaries are different between men and women, allow me to carefully explain how much of a fucking idiot you are. You cannot go including data you received annually, know why? because lets say you interview 50 men and 50 women, or even look at their tax information Unless all 100 worked the same exact job, in the same exact state for the same exact amount of time without 1 hour of difference the n your data is flawed. And thats not even considering if mcdonalds increases your hourly pay if you have worker their for a year already. "equal pay for equal work" can only be considered if you look at hourly wages. nothing else works Because the probability of finding a sample size without any differences in data other than gender is almost impossible. If i (male) work for 20 hours a week. and my female co-worker works 40 hours a week, guess which one of us will end the week with more money? Jesus its like you morons didn't pass 5th grade math. No wait, 5th grade involves some basic algebra, the above mathematical question is basic arithmetic, so its more like 3rd grade math. I leave you with this final piece of evidence dear reader, assuming you have read this far, If an employer can legally pay women less than men for doing the same job, then why would they hire men at all? Thats just a dumb financial decision because you would have to pay them more for no reason other than because they have a penis.

  5. Some good news from the Clinton campaign over the weekend in case you missed it. http://www.liberalamerica.org/2016/07/17/watch-clinton-vows-tackle-citizens-united-within-first-30-days/
  6. America now has more wealth and income inequality than any major developed country on earth, and the gap between the very rich and everyone else is wider than at any time since the 1920s. How is this Fair?
  7. If Bernie wins the primary tomorrow I believe that the Clinton campaign will be backed into a corner and they will have a very difficult time in California and the Bernie campaign will have a better chance at the contested Democratic Convention "Hillary Clinton needs to win 65.3 percent of the remaining pledged delegates to avoid a contested Democratic convention at which she and Bernie Sanders separately plead their cases to the Party’s 714 unpledged “super-delegates.”-.huffingtonpost This shows that the next few months will be hard for the Sanders and Clinton campaign and In general the Sanders camp will have A very better chance at the nomination.
  8. https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/arrest-and-prosecute-donald-j-trump-incitement-violence-legal-precedent-brandenburg-v-ohio There is a petition going around to arrest Donald Trump for incitement of violence at his rallies. He has done so many terrible things from making fun of people with disabilities, to saying he would pay for the legal fees of anyone who punches people at his rallies and everything in between, such as racist comments and comments objectifying/degrading women. Billionaires shouldn't be immune to the law and should have to pay the price when breaking them. https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/arrest-and-prosecute-donald-j-trump-incitement-violence-legal-precedent-brandenburg-v-ohio
  9. At a time when every free thinking American in the country can agree that America's system of criminal justice is utterly broken, why has so much weight been given to the product of that broken system? In an ever encroaching technical society where information "dot coms" are the new get rich quick ploy of the day, it seems that we as a society should "pump the breaks" on our quest for information, in effort to revisit the protections of our own constitutional safeguards. Today, with the click of a computer mouse we can run a criminal background check on virtually anyone. And governments from all jurisdictions (pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act) are more than eager to sell the private information from their broken criminal justice systems to cyber data brokers for thousands of dollars per lot. But why have we as a nation been so quick to surrender our privacy without so much as a good debate? Contrary to popular belief and practices, in the states of Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi, criminal background checks for non-law enforcement uses are illegal. Why???? Because in the year 1999, the Federal 5th Circuit Court of Appeals said so...That's why!!!! It seems that all of the "smart business people" in this country are quite ignorant to the law. And due to this ignorance, a new "Scarlet Letter" or otherwise third class citizenry has been allowed to ferment in the United States of America, resulting in millions of Americans who have been victimized by the country's broken criminal justice system, to be further victimized from denial of employment, housing, and even public assistance due to the deprivation of their constitutional / individual right to privacy. The ignorance of law in corporate America arises out of the distinctions between "the constitutional right to individual privacy" in our papers, property, and affairs, versus the limited implementation of the "FOIA" Freedom of Information Act". In the below referenced federal case, the wisdom of the 5th Circuit articulates exactly why criminal background checks in America encroaches not only on the privacy rights of the individual citizen, but also fosters an underclass citizenry to all who have been engaged by America's broken criminal justice system: Times Picayune Publ'g v. United States Department of Justice, 37 F. Supp. 2d 472 (5th Cir 1999). "For all of the above reasons, this Court concludes that disclosure of Mr. DeBartolo's mug shot could reasonably be expected to constitute an invasion of his personal privacy. C. Is There a Viable Public Interest in Disclosure of Mr. DeBartolo's Mug Shot? Having found a personal privacy interest in nondisclosure of Mr. DeBartolo's mug shot, the Court must now consider whether a viable public interest exists for its disclosure. Halloran, 874 F. 2d at 319. Several well settled principles guide this Court's evaluation of the public interests allegedly involved in disclosure of Mr. DeBartolo's mug shot. First, the FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) is designed to 'shed[] light on an agency's performance of its statutory duties,' or otherwise keep citizens informed about 'what their government is up to.' Reporter's Committee, 489 U.S. at 773, 109 S. Ct. at 1481-82. Disclosing information about private citizens that happens to be in government files does not foster that purpose if it reveals little or nothing about the agency's own conduct. Second, a court must measure the public interest of disclosure solely in terms of this objective, rather than on the particular purpose for which the document is being requested. Therefore, the identity and motive of the requesting party is irrelevant. Id. at 772, 109 S. Ct. at 1481; Halloran, 874 F. 2d at 323. Third, a FOIA requester does not create a legitimate public interest in disclosure through mere {37 F. Supp. 2d 480} speculation about potential public interests that possibly could be served. Ray v. United States Department of State, 502 U.S. 164, 179, 112 S. Ct. 541, 549, 116 L. Ed. 2d 526 (1991)(mere speculation about hypothetical public benefits cannot outweigh significant privacy interest for purposes of Exemption 6). Finally, under Halloran, merely stating an abstract public interest is insufficient; the Court must analyze how that interest would be served by compelling disclosure in the particular case. Halloran, 874 F. 2d at 323." In the 17th Century the Puritans utilized the branding of a letter upon the flesh in effort to permanently scar and shame a person for ​transgressions against civil order. Today in the 21st century we call these antics, "the criminal background check". Under the "attainder" clauses to our federal and state constitutions, when a person has satisfied their debt to society regardless as to whether that debt resulted from either a broken, or legitimate criminal justice system, that person has a constitutional Right (as a citizen of these United States), not to be made to suffer the consequences of past transgressions for the remainder of that person's life. Perhaps enough smart lawyers will sue the not-so-smart heads of corporate America for enough money, that the loss of revenue will make the country respect this Right once more.
  10. Hello! I am a lifelong democrat, who has always leaned towards the left in life. I have tried becoming more political as I grow up into adulthood, and although I can't say I've reached a level of knowledge I am comfortable with, I feel like I am on my way. Lately I have been "feeling the bern". I relate to a lot of the opinions he's expressed, and his ideas for helping America internally very much relate to me. I have donated to the campaign. One thing that has me a bit concerned is his support of the Obama drone program. While I have seen some quotes where Bernie agrees that the drone program needs more precise targeting, the vibe I've been getting is that his outrage for the economic situation at home does not extend to foreign affairs. In fact, I've felt a bit disillusioned by the Obama Drone Program in general. While admittedly, I do not have all of the facts to back up my disillusion, I feel that this program goes against what I had originally supported Obama for in the first place.Drones that have the potential to kill innocent people or people without a trial seems to be worse than torture/waterboarding. Yet where is the outrage? Is it because we have a democrat in office? If Bush had a "kill list" would things have been brought up differently? Can someone who is more informed on these matters comment? Where does Bernie Stand? Why are liberal progressives ok with the drone program? Look forward to discussing with everyone this campaign season!
  11. So I was having a debate(more like a shouting match) but then he said that the democratic socialism that he states, is not democratic socialism. That, Bernie sanders only wants to get ahead of Hilary Clinton. That he is using the shock factor like Donald Trump and that this is not socialism what he is doing, because he does not want to nationalise industries. And the major point that my conservative brother made about Bernie Sanders(apart from saying that Bernie Sanders was a senile pedophile, purely in jest) was that he is doing what every other Democratic hopeful wants to do except he wants to do it, in a more loud way(what ever that means <--)
