By Mark Tracey So you see no problem with the Republican statists who claim conservitisum yet ignore their own excesses and don’t call out wrong doing and corruption within government? And you say I need a shrink?
The issue is about globalism, not partisan politics.

By John Lozinski I live in EU America does not need globalism America needs to feed its hungry children and take care of its veterans better, I am a retired vet I did well but not all vets did. America needs to get rid of H1B and all H2B visas and America needs to deport all illegals including one I am very fond of unless he marries someone I love. Republican politicians are also crooks but mostly Republican voters stand for decency while Democratic voters do not they would slaughter unborn and allow degenerate LGBT pedophiles everywhere SICK

By Mark Tracey Again, your talking about internal issuesalthough I take exception to LGBT population, who have the right to behave as they wish, as long as it doesn’t interfere with the lives of others. Globalism is about making individual nations sovereignty irrelevant in the quest for global control.

By John Lozinski Somehow modern progressives like your self have not and do not learn that people for centuries have been wise. Sodomy and LGBT behavior was illegal and immoral for a reason and you people will learn in time that there are many reasons why it should not be but history again and again has to hit IDIOTS over the head because they know better. LOOK AT VENEZUELAN LIFE.

By Mark Tracey This is a first! Someone on TOK called me Progressive. Regardless, I don’t have to like or approve the behavior of others to defend their right to be who they are as long as they are not harming others. Venezuela did not crumble because of LGBTs, it fell because of a socialist dictatorship, a lesson so far lost on the budding millennial socialists in the US.

By Mark Tracey That is true, but the economy was of socialist design.

By John Lozinski And any aid we send will be stolen and the country will remain a MESS
Picture?type=square
By Mark Tracey That depends on the nature of the aid, who sends it and how it is distributed. Humanitarian aid sent and distributed by reputable charitable organizations is very likley to be on target. Government aid without specific targeted areas handed over to the powers that be are likely to be imbezled and squandered .

By William Dykeman once maduro is removed from office we should flood venezuela with aid encouraging them to embrce democracy and market based systms, but not until then

By William Dykeman you can achieve a socialist sort of society in a market system like the nordics do if you are talking about pure traditiona socialism i dont think many still support that i conceed that did not work, and probably never will socialsim if we ever see it is along way in our future as technology and human nature changes and i think it is slowly, thats the problem epole demand thngs change over night the wont its going to take hundred amybe thousadns of years for society and human kind to evolve to a socialist ideal for now we can make incremental changes, baby steps
