    Ok folks, here's the deal... I'm about to go Kevin Lee in this B.

    Either you're a capitalist, the type of person that makes most of his money investing his capital, or you're a worker. If you have greater than $2.5 million in CAPITAL to invest, then you're a capitalist (a 10% year of investment would give you $250 k, enough to live off of).

    For everyone else, you're a worker! I don't care if you're making $20,000 a year or $250,000. You're a worker, you earn a paycheck, you don't live off your money.

    Workers have gotten a raw deal in the last 40 years. Rising costs, stagnant wages, and declining benefits from the government. After the new Deal, workers were sitting pretty and were able to enjoy the fruits of a strong post-war economy. Slowly, those benefits have been eroded.

    This isn't by accident. The business community got together and decided they would work together to take most of those benefits back. They promoted a 'trickle-down' or 'supply-side' theory of economics as an alternative, with the idea that while you personally would get less benefits, everyone would benefit from a stronger economy.

    We now know that is completely false. The evidence is right there, the capitalist class made tremendous profits in the last 10 years, and the workers got shafted - inequality skyrockets.

    We need to elect the one guy who's going to fix the balance of benefits between worker and capitalist - BERNIE! Not Warren, not Biden, not anyone else. BERNIE!

    DONATE NOW TO HELP GIVE HIM MOMENTUM.

    BERNIE SANDERS IN THIS BITCH!

    You can tell because he didn't mention Saudi Arabia or Israel.

    I'm talking to the Dems here for the primary. When the general comes around, Bernie won't need any money to trounce Trump, the fake "swamp-drainer"-cum-Republican rubber stamper.

    A) “Trickle-down” is a complete misunderstanding of the free market argument.
    B) Ordinary people always end up paying more when the state grows.
    C) Capitalism is not the problem, the problem is corporatism and rules that favour big business over small enterprise; more regulations and taxes will only make that worse.
    D) Pretending that upper middle class professionals are “workers” is a con to get the aspiring working classes to vote for a bigger state that makes social mobility harder.
    E) Bernie is the best Democratic candidate (aside from Tulsi) and the only one who can beat Trump.

    One of the major reasons Trump was elected was his anti-war stance.

    He's so anti-war, he assassinated the head general of Iran and basically put their entire economy under sanction.

    Something tells me that this is not what real anti-war Republicans like Ron Paul had in mind.

    Bernie is not a fake anti-war candidate like Obama or Trump, he's the real deal my friend.

    This maybe true, but supply side economics is failed.

    We need demand side economics.

    Our current system is definitely flawed. But Bernie would just add nonsense to it and make it worse for everyone. Some simpler fixes are needed. Like the ceo of GE or Boeing walking away with tens or hundreds of millions despite damaging their companies. They should get nothing. Holding people and companies responsible would go a long way in fixing what is wrong.
    Bernie thoguh honest, I don't feel he has any real answers that would work in the USA

    Shit, you should see Ron Paul trash Trump on the Liberty Report. Quite entertaining.

    Even worse than trickle down is the idea of unrestricted global trade with anyone who wants to do it. It's been bad for USA workers and there has been no recourse to it.

    A) Free market is an illusion that has never existed in the history of the planet. That's not what Republicans are actually promoting. Free-marketeers would have let the banks fail in 2008. We don't live in a world where Republicans are actually in favor of a free market. So the dichotomy is not centrally managed economy vs. free market, it's a socialist leaning system of capitalism vs. a corporatist-leaning system of capitalism.

    B) The state is growing regardless of party, in case you haven't been paying attention. The only difference is that Republicans are cutting benefits that are going to you.

    C) Agreed on the first part, but less regulation isn't the problem. You just need to regulate the big corporations more heavily than the small businesses - Bernie is your man for that.

    D) It's a literal fact. If you don't make money with money, you aren't part of the 0.1%. You are working for a paycheck. The real con is convincing people that make over $100 k a year that they AREN'T workers.

    E) HELL YEA BABY!

    I am going to laugh so loud when Bernie is up on that podium telling his followers to support Biden.

    The amount of Bernie followers who are going to lose their mind is going to be glorious.
