Stupid people can't even see what happens under Socialism even when the perfect example of it is in their own hemisphere. I truly believe that a majority of people just don't pay attention to anything that requires them to think beyond what is fun. They may on occasion tune into the news in some form, but it only reinforces their view that it's just too much to take in, and off they go doing what brings them some form of escape from reality. Having never been taught what Communism and Socialism really is, they just look at the fairness of it all, without knowing it's real intention.

Progressives have worked towards this for over a century and their efforts are paying off at last. They established governments schools expressly to marginalize Christian morals, indoctrinate in secular idiocy, erase American history and produce ignoramuses who will vote for anyone who promises them "free" stuff. Add to this the invasion by millions of foreigners who know nothing of our past or our principles and don't care to learn about these and whose primary motivation is to drain as much from the nation as they can while paying in little or nothing in return and you end up with what we have today. California really is the future of what was once the United States of America.

Dumbed down Americans don't know what they like. The Dems have been pounding it into everyone's head that Socialism was the favored philosophy of Jesus Christ, This is a lie - an extreme malicious fabrication. Communism and Socialism are enforced from a leader upon the followers. Christ simply said, "Love one another as I have loved you." There was no enforcement, no punishment, no demand that everyone else conform, OR ELSE, that is Socialism. Christ's teachings depend on our free will. But Democrats and Communists use the argument to enslave us.

Let's do dumb down the college boards. There are already way too many people now-a-days who do not want to believe in American excellence; so, by all means, let's add to the lot so we can all aim for the worse common denominator and that's what you get with socialism.

More and more Americans are becoming brainwashed and ignorant of the facts of current events, either from what they are being taught in so-called schools and universities or being told by so-called news organizations. Meanwhile, those of us who are deplorable and ignorant have a better grasp of current events and the actual facts because of our curiosity, love of the truth and our sources of news.

It's difficult to "take up arms" when they have been confiscated by those who cannot become tyrants as long as patriots are armed. The socialists will engineer equality of misery and there will be nobody to rescue the sheep who have given up their freedom for free stuff. Once the tyrants take power, who needs the electoral college anymore ... the 4 biggest blue states will choose Amerika's leaders and the rest of the stupid population that enabled socialism can twiddle their thumbs. The media did their job. Orwell got it right.

There seems to be a question of not having our guns or having them confiscated. Once there is a drive to take our firearms against the 2nd Amendment the fight will start and the liberty tree will drink deeply. So please let us leave the 2nd alone.

But are they going to like it when they get electrical brownouts (like some places do now), when there's no food, when there's no medicine or functioning hospitals or no doctors to be found and when the ruling dictators rake in all the money and leave the citizens with nothing? Like Venezuela? Because that's your future no matter what rosy outcomes the Putin wannabees say how different it will be. Socialism always results in complete destruction. If people had a smidgen of a brain, they'd learn real history, not fake history like students get now in public school and in colleges/universities.

Agree with the comments above, but I believe that we, as parents, have a duty to our children to teach them about our history, it’s founding principles and a good work ethic. We can’t put that all on the education system although they play a huge part in the lies and omissions that are taught in school. We have to counterbalance the garbage they hear. We must instill patriotism and a real sense of who we are and why this country is the envy of the world. To expect the schools to teach your children what you believe is naive. You must do that yourself. Many educators are just waiting to shape your children’s thinking and beliefs. Don’t allow that to happen. We can no longer assume truth is being taught. A good portion of what they are being taught is propaganda. Teach your children the truth.

The Trump administration earlier this year sought funds from Congress to reimburse leaders of the Taliban for expenses incurred traveling to negotiate peace in Afghanistan with U.S. representatives. The undisclosed sum would repay representatives of the Afghan terrorist organization for expenses like airfare, hotel, food and supplies. The idea, ultimately shot down by a House subcommittee, is one small sign of how eager the U.S. government is to craft a peace settlement in that war-torn country as cover for finally extracting American forces after 18 years of deadly combat. Not coincidentally, although it targets civilians, the Taliban is not listed

It looks like Americans are not the only people following the 2020 presidential contest closely, and that’s causing serious and growing challenges for President Donald Trump. A self-proclaimed world-class dealmaker, a perhaps overconfident Trump is confronting not one, not two, but a half-dozen serious foreign policy problems simultaneously. [Snip] In fact, the possibility — some would say likelihood — of a Trump with chronically unfavorable poll numbers joining George H.W.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Sunday that growing cauliflower in community gardens is part of the “colonial” attitudes that her Green New Deal will stamp out. The New York Democrat, who introduced the proposal to tackle climate change by radically transforming the economy, posted a series of Instagram videos filmed in her home state talking about community gardens as a “core component” of her proposal. “What I love too is growing plants that are culturally familiar to the community. It’s so important,” she said as she filmed a community garden in the Bronx. “So that’s really how you do it right.

The Nevada Senate approved Tuesday a National Popular Vote bill on a party-line vote, sending the legislation aimed at upending the Electoral College to the governor. Assembly Bill 186, which passed the Senate on a 12-8 vote, would bring Nevada into the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, an agreement between participating states to cast their electoral votes for the winner of the popular vote. If signed as expected by Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak, Nevada would become the 16th jurisdiction to join the compact, along with 14 states and the District of Columbia.

Jerry Nadler was at it again Tuesday, waxing indignant about former White House counsel Don McGahn’s refusal to testify before the House Judiciary Committee. It’s all a show, meant to keep old news in the headlines, and to appease the large “Impeach Now!” wing of the Democratic Party without actually doing anything. Everyone on Judiciary knows perfectly well that Congress can’t compel testimony from top presidential advisers except in the most extraordinary circumstances: The chief executive’s right to frank, confidential discussions with his staff is well-established. So Nadler’s bluster about how he’ll “go to court to secure” McGahn’s appearance is just noise for the cameras. Then again, that’s all

Americans today are more closely divided than they were earlier in the last century when asked whether some form of socialism would be a good or bad thing for the country. While 51% of U.S. adults say socialism would be a bad thing for the country, 43% believe it would be a good thing. Those results contrast with a 1942 Roper/Fortune survey that found 40% describing socialism as a bad thing, 25% a good thing and 34% not having an opinion. The Roper/Fortune survey is one of the oldest trend questions measuring attitudes on socialism in the U.S. Gallup's update of the question in an April 17-30 survey finds

The letter reads, in part: "Since his sentencing, modern medicine has learned a great deal about the effects of brain trauma.

If there was a reason President Donald Trump chose the small Pennsylvania town of Montoursville to hold a campaign rally, no one in the media is saying what it is. In the absence of any answers, let me suggest one, admittedly more speculative than proven but a possibility nonetheless. In 1996, during the midst of Bill Clinton's desperate drive to become president, 16 French club members from the Montoursville high school and five of their chaperones died in the crash of TWA Flight 800 off the coast of Long Island. Although the phrase has been much abused, there is none better than "cover-up" to describe what followed.
