    May also be considered rightist fear mongering propaganda....meh....but what do I know, being a tool of the Alinsky socialist is a sneak preview....

    In the mean time, the capitalists will continue to collect their investment dividends; and the lumpen proletariat will continue to collect their green stamps...

    For a tool of the Alinsky socialist provocateurs you do post some good stuff. Sometimes.

    About the only way to become the proletariat in a Capitalist society is to choose to be so and then fight the opportunity that surrounds you. Even at that, what most are now terming "proletariat" have smart phones, TV's, air conditioning, and the rest of the conveniences that Capitalism first invents and then provides inexpensively. If you want actual proletariats - those who own little or no property - then they can be efficiently produced by both Socialism and Communism in impressive numbers. One only needs to look at Venezuela for a recent example.

    I, for one, do not begrudge or envy the wealth of who create the jobs that make life better for everybody else.

    In spite of the ravings and rantings of those who embrace central societal control, capitalism is not a sin. Capitalists are rewarded for their hard work, which is what work is intended to cause.

    Capitalists are rewarded for their investment of capital and business acumen into an enterprise, which may or may not also involve "hard work" of their own. Workers on the other hand, invest their labour into the enterprise, together with not a little forlelock tugging, for a wage or salary. Sometimes the exchange is equitable, sometimes it is not.

    Sorry folks for the lapse into Marxist terminology, NeoCons would refer to the same folk as wealth creators and lazy parasites respectively....Marxists would of course apply the terms the other way around. ;) Sometimes I underuse the sarcasm icons.

    I am beginning to feel that the "Make America Great Again" rhetoric is becoming the more modern equivalent of "Kraft durch Freude" Strength Through Joy - a Trumpland golf links, or hotel of course. :LOL:

    If you would only try thinking instead of relying on feelings for for your positions, you might actually understand where conservatives are coming from...

    I would pray that you are right.....but we know how efficacious prayer is. ;)

    Probably the one point upon which we agree...
