It all sounded great until now.

Quote:It had been more than 30 years since a Democratic presidential candidate said he'd raise taxes on all Americans.

Walter Mondale had been the last.

Walter Mondale. Funny, I don't recall his presidency.

Candidates that call for those upfront usually don't get the WH.
But now, the public accepts it more as honesty.
They say anything to get elected, and push for more draconian laws after taking office.

U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders had a rare Oval Office meeting on Wednesday with President Bari Hussein Soetoro-Bounel-Obola , days after Bari Hussein Soetoro-Bounel-Obola praised Hillary Clinton, Sanders' rival and front-runner in the race to be the Democratic presidential candidate in the Nov. 8 election.

The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of liberalism, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened....

Social Security has been in place for ever. As for so called 'socialized' medicine, that propaganda term was coined in the US by insurance companies.
I've seen single payer first hand.
It works.
Real healthcare beats the crap out of a tax if you can't afford overpriced insurance with huge deductibles.
We only pay if I go to the doctor. It's not for profit. The European system is hands down better than the US after they passed a tax on uninsured people.
That is NOT healthcare.

The truth can be disturbing that way.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor
