>Until this report got made public and pushed by the media, everyone thought the economy was flawless.Literally nobody thought this except boomers sitting in their living rooms watching FOX and CNN. The economy is been shit since 2008 and it's no secret.
>If anything Trump should have worked to slowing growth after he was elected to make sure it stayed positive but the amplitude lower.No, he should have overturned Obama's bank deregulations instead of expanding them. He should have increased federal income taxes on the rich instead of removing them entirely.
>The reason I like the SCOTUS being red is as I said before, it keeps the wacko far leftists in check in the coming few decades.Please, tell us what you're worried about the "wacko far leftists" from doing? Are you worried they might protect the climate or stop the holocaust in Yemen, or protect clean drinking water? Are you afraid they might ease the burden on the impoverished masses? The far left is the only strong political element in the US working to fix our broken democracy. Nobody except for Bernie, Yang, and Tulsi (out of the candidates currently running) have called out the countless flaws in our democratic process.
>The whole of the West is moving more and more left as I said above.People might be going left since Trump's election, but for 30 years, the spectrum as a whole in the US has been moving right, such that modern democrats are yesterday's republicans and modern republicans are yesterday's far-right. Surely you're old enough to know that?
>I'm not on board with taxing wealth and ownership of money.Then you're a fucking idiot. The ultra megarich should pay their fair share. Why should the richest people be exempt from paying taxes on their trillions, enjoying numerous mansions and estates, while the rest of us can't afford any housing, healthcare, or education? Taxing wealth would bring trillions annually in tax income.
>Those things are going too far left for me. Just as is banning abortionsYou're completely backwards. Banning abortions is universally understood as a republican policy point, a rightwing goal, not left. Even the MSM is clear about that.
>Status quo sells fam. Radical change doesn't. Remember most people that vote are over 30, have their shit invested in the game and have a lot to lose if the system gets changed and it doesn't work outAgain, no. Bernie is incredibly popular, far more than Biden. Biden's only strength is his overwhelming MSM support. That's what's fooling idiot boomers. A demand for radical change is what determined the outcome of the last 3 elections. The system already failed and "didn't work out" when Obama deregulated the banks and we got the 08' crash, which our dollar and our general population has never recovered from. You can't just wave your hand and spout some vagaries about the country as reasons for why the poor must remain poor and the rich should never be taxed.
>if you aren't a fucktard, you can actually make it alright in the USSo you actually mean, if you're a slave who has no freedom, "little money, absolutely no benefits, and no personal time," then you can barely survive? You're describing a system of inequality while trying to push this BS ideology of rugged individualism, austerity for the poor, and socialism for the rich.
>I work 50-60 hours a week for little money and absolutely no benefits and no personal time
>What you are reading is again someone who is experience and has spent more time in the world that youYou think you're the only person not in their 20's? Goddamn I can't believe how you can be so wrong on so many points and yet also so full of yourself. Maybe you'd have more informed views if you didn't assume immediately that every stupid comment that comes out of you is flawlessly true.
>If Bernie was given the free reign to do whatever without any limitations, he'd run the US into the dirt in a matter of weeks.Please back this up. Our economy has tanked. The masses are poor. We're at endless wars, and millions have been murdered. The climate is failing, and income inequality is at an all-time high (the highest ever in human history). Please tell us how we're doing great and Bernie will ruin this great system. Keep America Great, amirite?
>Just like all our active measures to stop climate change have strange and unintended and usually massive effects. There is a reason we can't slow down global warming. It is beyond our scope of influence as humans.Why are you so retarded man? You have no idea what you're talking about. The reason we can't slow down global climate change is because the pursuit of wealth trumps climate protection efforts. That's it. It's because we have a president who is actively stripping the Clean Water Act and Endangered Species Act, a president who is opening our oceans and our national parks to drilling. It's because for the last 30 years, we've had a string of presidents who will gladly watch the world burn if it appeases their corporate donors.
>Even if we all ceased to be, the climate will still runaway at this point.This is not scientifically founded, and few, if any, climatologists would agree with your armchair assessment.
>I don't want political discourse to be a leddit like circlejerk of one party all doing whatever the fuck they want with no checks and balances in place.If you really think there are two differing parties in the US, and that they balance each other out in a meaningful way, then that only betrays your lack of true understanding on the topic. We have one dominant part, the corporatist party. Pseudo-centrism is a thinly veiled form of conservatism.
>You've got to remember these folks are in it for the money and have so much money, they don't understand life like you nor I.Let's back up a moment.
>They're all entitled rich spoiled and out of touch fucking cunts working against you and I.
>I'm not on board with taxing wealthSo we shouldn't tax the incredible wealth people have generated off the work of others, but we also can acknowledge that the wealthy are generally "entitled rich spoiled and out of touch fucking cunts working against you and I." Hm.
>While I liked Bernie at one time and voted for him, I still know that fucker has more money than I ever will and he doesn't know my struggle. He says he does and tries to relate to me in the working lower class but that old dick knows nothing of us down here at the bottom.Why don't you look up Bernie's childhood and see how he actually lived. Or even better, why don't you keep up with his congressional record and see that he's one of very few politicians who actually is consistent in his message and his votes.
