Re: Are Liberals Helping Trump?

Somehow I don't think that has any bearing on immigrants selling drugs and fighting with police. It wasn't terror. It wasn't in Sweden. It was in Denmark. It is easily believable. It was reported by the Associated Press. I think they are still a respected news source.

Re: Are Liberals Helping Trump?

Very few intelligent posts here. And I haven't heard from any real capitalists. But carry on - it's amusing.

Is that supposed to be funny? Because it isn't.

I'm pretty sure it is.
I would say the left concentrating on social issues and being nice to minorities is the worst possible way to attack him other than those who are firmly on their side already. His ineffectiveness and linking it to his this skinned nature would be a better line of attack for them IMO.

Are you actually my brother? Because he's the only person I've met who thinks I'm Ayn Rand's representative on earth.

Hint: I'm not. I'm an anarcho-capitalist, whereas she wasn't.

Hope that helps.

Re: Are Liberals Helping Trump?

Anarcho-capitalist...

Is that like vegan-steakhouse?

Capitalism, like anything else, exists only in economics textbooks. Once it is established, it goes downhill quickly due to greed or is held in check by regulations.

Anarchism? well, that you can have since the definition is a bit more fluid but I have a difficult time visualizing people our age actively following Bakunin or going to Bukowski poetry readings. I did the latter but only for the chicks when I was in university back then...

Cool Re: Are Liberals Helping Trump?

The liberals ain't helping Trump, although I do feel that a few Bernie Sanders supporters definitely crossed over to his side during the general election, causing a handful of blue states to barely turn red!

Synopsis: The next Dem nominee will be more in line with the Bernie Sanders persona and platform! Trump is already digging a deep hole to fall in, given that he is so reviled even during the "honeymoon phase" of his administration.

After four years of being the consummate aristocratic blowhard, then retaking the presidency won't be that hard of a task for the Dems, unless of course, the Russian computer gurus/hackers can introduce a new and better bug for the 2020 U.S. elections!
