    And people say that the rich in the U.S. are not paying their fair share, which is completely absurd:

    And now they are aiming to take away wealth.
    Are people not allowed to reap the benefits of their success, or take risk with their money which provides opportunity for others, such as investments?
    Philanthropy?

    No. Let's all send it to the government, because they have such a great track record in wealth redistribution.

    It did. It did a ton of good. Our death rates per capita were well under most others.

    This might be an unpopular opinion--But I believe this chart highlights that the world has by and large done an amazing job staving off death from this pandemic. If you look at other pandemics (Black Death, Spanish Flu, Plague of Justinian, and just about anything ever with Yersinia pestis) the populace would have been tickled wirh even Italy's per capita deaths.

    We can do better of course, but as far as pandemics go this one is mild.

    Trump is making Biden out to be some sort of far-left boogeyman. If Biden were half the boogeyman Trump thinks he is, I would not have a single hesitation.

    But Trump considers moderates (who may even tilt right) as "the radical left".

    All the pandemics you mentioned had a much higher death rate.

    Funny how despite all that redistrubution, the average person in Norway, Sweden, and Denmark doesn't have that much more than the average American.

    AOC is going to be part of his administration and probably Omar. I would say even by 2010 liberal standards thats extreme left wing.

    prepare for your new overlords @Philo-Publius I'll make sure they throw in some extra rat meat into your rations in the gulagges and you get a good seat for the trains being ran on your sister for entertainment.

    Communism, Socialism, Democratic Socialism, all share the main central underlying tenet of parasitism.

    Redistribute from the producer class, to support those suffering from work aversion. It's all a cozy ruse from the class hustlers that peddle it.

    It does work, and exactly as intended. People just haven't figured that out yet. They still think the burger in the commercial is the one that's going to arrive on their tray.

    So they have about as much as Americans while not having to worry about healthcare or education? Sounds great. Were you supposed to have some sort of gotcha here? I am not seeing it.

    Sure thing. We just need someone like Ocasio-Cortez to thread the needle to make a perfect Socialist utopia. I happen to like the imperfect options of a free market that far exceed the options in a Socialized market. It's all relative.

    What’s the difference? And don’t post a link to Wikipedia. Explain it in your own words.

    Your avatar is stupid.
