2. AND I notice something that all those nations above the US have one thing in common

 

they take care of their citizens with social programs, health care, living wages, etc.

Funny that, but not Ha-Ha.

3. That's always my argument to the people who scream about higher taxes for socialism

"I don't mind paying more for a better society. Right now I pay almost as much to finance wars and bankers."

5. It simply amazes me...

It is people like Trump who drove the economy into the ditch. Electing one of them is supposed to fix it?

6. Well, an awful lot of voters have been buying the theory of

trickle-down economics for 30+ years. They figure any day now it will start to work.

8. No, but acting like them for the last eight years isn't much of a way to attract voters

 

to the other side.

There is a saying - when two politicians agree, you don't need one of them.

Next time the people who went to hell and back for their bank$ters while screwing over working people should remember that, if they ever get that chance again:

7. Now compare that with defense budgets

and then you'll really feel like we're getting screwed. Bernie's told us what he can do with just a small fraction of that defense budget.

but to be fair to the Drumpf, if you look at it by total dollars then the US really is the highest taxed nation because of the sheer size of our economy.
