75. Typical status quo defense from a Hillary supporter

 

And now I am going to debunk you.

Why is that you say "America is a centrist, capitalist country. We are not and will never be socialist."
Are you aware what Socialist even is because I'm thinking you don't.

Socialist is the former DDR and USSR, it isn't countries like Canada, Germany, Sweden or Denmark.

We need to clear the air with that first.

Secondly, you say we'll never be socialist but in reality we already are.
What are things like social security, national highways, libraries, police and fire and public education?

Now let's look at something else. That whole "we'll never be" thing.

Are you aware that most American's agree with Bernie's policies?
