  1. it's difficult to find an example of a "failed socialist state" that wasn't also constantly being undermined by US imperial interests. The socialist government in Bolivia was doing well until the recent right-wing coup, which was very likely facilitated by the US.
  2. https://gizmodo.com/teen-who-died-of-covid-19-was-denied-treatment-because-1842520539 A 17-year-old boy in Los Angeles County who became the first teen believed to have died from complications with covid-19 in the U.S. was denied treatment at an urgent care clinic because he didn’t have health insurance, according to R. Rex Parris, the mayor of Lancaster, California. Roughly 27.5 million Americans—8.5 percent of the population—don’t have health insurance based on the latest government figures. “He didn’t have insurance, so they did not treat him,” Parris said in a video posted to YouTube. The staff at the urgent care facility told the teen to try the emergency room at Antelope Valley (AV) Hospital, a public hospital in the area, according to the mayor. “En route to AV Hospital, he went into cardiac arrest, when he got to AV hospital they were able to revive him and keep him alive for about six hours,” Parris said. “But by the time he got there, it was too late.”
  3. No, they know how it works, they just can't say it out loud.
  4. Bailouts, get yer bailouts here
  5. Sure, then we get fascism in 2024 instead of 2020. Big improvement. Neoliberalism won't last forever. The choices are socialism or barbarism, and we are much closer to the latter.
  6. I believe the left truly cares for the welfare of the country, especially of the WORKING CLASS, the largest and most vulnerable people, and the centrists are either impediments at best or lackeys and bootlickers at worst. Guess we'll have to just agree to disagree. Just because this country was founded by wealthy aristocrats to protect their interests doesn't mean it always has to be that way lest it all fall apart.
  7. So old history is fair game when you bring it up but not me? Can't have it both ways. And I was talking about the coronavirus situation. Trump's approval rating is rising because he is out there holding press conferences every day and looking like he's doing something. You barely heard a peep from Pelosi and Schumer aside from throwing one or two quarter-assed bills out. Biden hasn't been seen for days and has probably been replaced with a hologram. Enjoy 4 more years of the orange man. Don't say I didn't warn you.
  8. Desperate? I know what happened. The primary is basically over. Aside from something truly unbelievable happening, Biden is the nominee. I'm pointing out: he is a bad candidate with significant weaknesses, and unless those weaknesses are compensated for, he will lose. Right now y'all are acting like this election will be a cakewalk. That's what happened in 2016, and guess what happened? You lost! You were given a chance to reform the party and you didn't. Now when it falls apart at least the record will show why. And maybe you'll listen some day.
  9. Anyone who tells you Trump "isn't that bad" is off their rocker. But the establishment Democrats are not much better! And that disillusionment led to a populist political outsider winning the presidency against Her Royal Highness herself!
  10. Nancy Pelosi sure as hell won't. I believe that the Green New Deal is the only legislation that addresses climate change at the scale required to tackle the problem. And she is firmly against it.
  11. There are plenty of examples from the present day. And as I said, it's just more obvious in the Republicans now because they hold more power. Democrats do the same thing when they are in power. The root of all of this is MONEY. Most of your favorite establishment Dems take lobbyist money, make handshake deals, and personally profit from them. Just like the Republicans. They pass weak programs full of means-testing that doesn't help anyone, and then are shocked when they get voted out! Your blindness is part of the problem!
