I can't understand why everyone supporting the democommies...doesn't see what they are doing to the country and the constitution. Socialism and communism doesn't work...look at Europe and Russia.. Russia collapsed and half of Europe is right behind them... We are losing more of our constitutional rights daily. Hillary is not the answer.... Look into all of her political and business ties....why are most of the Clintons business partners dead... The average person has been blinded by the democratic BS flying around. I can't believe how gulable and stupid people are today... They've rewritten history books and made everyone dumber by the day. It's working.
Clearly everyone is not supporting the democommies, since thanks to gerrymandering Republicans keep getting elected. The deep South and the West are bastions of Conservatism. Communism is a failed economic system without a doubt. Just one question if Socialism is so terrible and Europe so bankrupt, why are they able to afford to cover all their people under comprehensive medical programs? They not only cover all of their citizens but they do it at half the price we are spending in this country.
Also consider Germany, they are a smaller country than ours and yet they are able to absorb 8 times more Syrian refugees than we are even willing to take in under the best case situation. I think a big part of the answer is they don't run around the world trying to use war as a means to further their geopolitical ambitions. Of course Germany has a good economy even though they do pay a living wage to their workers and provide free college education to their young people, and yes even health care. Every German feels it is their duty to pay their taxes and don't try to figure out ways to short the tax man. They realize freedom isn't free and that someone has to eventually pay the bill. Also currently Germany is becoming energy independent going green and using renewable sources, like wind, solar and even Ocean tides to generate power. Right now over one third of their power comes from renewable sources that don't pump CO2 into the environment.
The one thing I don't understand is why in some of the poorest states like in the South especially, the voters keep voting against their own economic interests? Kentucky just elected a Tea Bag Gov. who plans on dismantling the state health exchange and end health coverage to 500,000 of the poorest people? Like I said before during the 50's the effective tax rate on the wealthy in this country was 90%, and yet it was the time of our greatest prosperity. We were closer to Socialism then than we ever were and under a Republican President Eisenhower, go figure?
