Trump and his Republicans are "Socialism's" best pals.

First, there's health care. Trump wasn't actually pulling a "bait and switch" on health care when he promised to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act with something better and cheaper. What Trump was doing was more like that trick you can pull on Fido. "Go get the stick, Boy! Go get it!!" Then you just pretend to throw the stick. So funny.

Unfortunately for Trump and those who follow Republicanism, people aren't quite as easy to trick as dogs. Trump whetted people's appetites for repeal and replace. They haven't forgotten. That's to the good.

Second, Trump and Republicanism followers have succeeded in sullying capitalism's good name, largely through incompetence, greed, and incompetent greed. (The latter is when you think you're being greedy but are in reality being stupid. See also, "classic con rube profile.") The net result is that people will be less likely to worship the false capitalism of Republicanism, clearing the way for true, regulated, productive capitalism. Again, that's to the good.

9. Shrimp and scallops does me in. Sound of communists whining.

A fart is nothing more than a democrat whistling for the right of way.

This was just sad, Swifty. Delete the OP and try again. No one will hold it against you.

13. Yeah, that's why Venezuela got rid of it. Now look how well they're doing.

And please don't try to tell us that Scandinavia countries aren't capitalist. In fact, they are some of the most corporate friendly countries in the world.

15. Well define

reopublicanism

and the capitalism of republicanism so I can know what you mean!

First I am against Trumps repeal and replace- if it is mandatory in any way it is unconstitutional! Voluntary without any penalty or tax on those who do not participate? fine!

16. Even though you took a week from your last humiliating OP you still came up with one just as stupid.

You do realize that your posts are as much a joke here as g4s don`t you?
If there is one that scrapes the bottom of the idiocy barrel it is compared to a swift post.
