    Surely they mean no ill will by giving corporations control of what can and can't be sent using their services, I'm sure they'd stop at this, I mean as we all know Mussolini stopped of his own accord, right.

    George H. W. Bush has died.

    I can't say I'll miss him, though I do feel for his family.

    The EU breaking the internet

    Capitalism is built off keeping the poor man poor and meek under the rich man's brow, of course upwards mobility is low, Capitalism is built off having massive amounts of people in work to exploit and a massive number out of work to play the role of a surplus army of labor. Capitalists will always lie to workers saying, "If you just work harder you can move up on the business ladder" they claim capitalism is human nature instead of an affront against it. They rely on workers not being paid the the true value of their labor, and the costs of making goods to go down, while price go up, and they then rely on the capitalist welfare state to prop them up and keep workers satisfied, while bosses continue to exploit them. Corporatism is merely Capitalism, Capitalism inevitable leads to the concentration of wealth into the hands of very few, it's built that way, it's not a flaw it's a feature. And the "self-made man" should rather be more aptly titled a Capitalist no capitalist would be able to sustain himself without the exploitation of labor. What I ask you created the goods that "self made man" sold to reach millionaire or billionaire status, what is the the only means to create wealth? Labor! Who's labor you might ask? Workers, workers built the factories and made the goods, built the cities where the Bourgeoisie trade, yet who gets the credit? Well, I think you already know by now...

    Okay, what are these benefits and flaws you speak of, and capitalism is already similar to feudalism as theirs the Capitalist class (the Bourgeoisie as Marx put it) that own the factories and take surplus value from workers, the, military and police who defend the Capitalist class, the clergy who teach religion as a way to satiate the proletariat promising a paradise after death, and then there's the Ruler class who make laws that benefit the Capitalists at the expense of the proles, and finally there's the Proletariat upon who's labor all of civilization is built, every mine and every factory, the endless miles of railroad laid, all built by proles, yet do they get to own the fruits of their labor? No! They belong to the Capitalist class for workers to slave in, all the while the Bourgeoisie make off doing none of the work but reaping all of the profit.

    Lol "SJW" you expect to be taken seriously using terms like that? Also you always pull the sheeple card whenever someone disagrees with you, which is rich coming from someone who claims "corporatism" exists and is in any way distinct from capitalism. Agreed.

    Well at least you're smart enough to know America's never been the guardian of "freedom and democracy" it bills itself as. So are you saying Iran and North Korea should be allowed to have a nuclear bomb to defend against the US (who would doubtlessly strike first), and what about the countless wars started by US and Capitalist imperialism (Iraq and Afghanistan just being the most notable of recent examples). Should God really play a role in human affairs?

    Quick question, why do you think wars are fought?

    Democratic Primary Poll (November 2018)

    Ding-Ding-Ding, it's almost as if the republican party is bad and you shouldn't support them if you claim to support rights for anyone who's not a straight white wealthy cisgendered-man. Just because Trump says the quiet part out loud doesn't mean Flake and Kasich don't massively agree with the quiet part, they just know they can't say it out loud (yet).

    Democratic Primary Poll (November 2018)

    He voted with trump 84 percent of the time if you support Flake what that says to me is that you like the warmongering, and homophobia, and racism, but don't like how flagrant Trump is with it, now maybe you don't but, really supporting Flake is no better than just supporting a more competent Trump.

    2020: Trump vs. US Reps

    He also raped his female slaves so... For economic reasons, he didn't really view blacks as fully human.

    Well actually in Maoist China colleges factories villages etc. were expected to have their own militias, and even today people are still allowed to have rifles for hunting. It wasn't until Deng Xiaoping that the militias were phased out. Also I doubt Hamilton and Jefferson would be so keen on blacks or women or any of those "subhumans" owning a gun.

    Perhaps I misspoke, but in my experience liberals are often against gun-rights, and while some self styled leftists support gun control legislation, many leftists I know actually support gun-rights.

    2020: Trump vs. US Reps

    No, many leftists are pro gun, unlike many many liberals. Just because I quoted Marx doesn't mean that Marxists have a monopoly on being pro-gun leftists, and while you're right Ojeda and leftists aren't the same I was simply stating the fact that you don't need to be a conservative to support gun rights.

    2020: Trump vs. US Reps

    Many leftists are pro gun "Under no pretext should arms and ammunition be surrendered; any attempt to disarm the workers must be frustrated, by force if necessary"- Karl Marx, being pro gun isn't solely a right wing position.

    New Historical President RP

    Name and office: Elizabeth M. Haley Leader of the American Federation Teachers Age: 42 Party: Socialist Labor Resident state: Ohio VP nominee: Rep. William J. Horner of Georgia Key Issue to Defend in Theoretical Debate: Doctrine of peace Platform (see State of the Union): National Strength: Some made-up ranking of "strength" isn't as important as making sure that we take proper care of our citizens. Military Strength: Once we secure a peace deal between Russia and Turkey I have plan to shrink the size of our army by half and our navy by a third before the end of my term . Foreign Affairs: Sit down and talk to Russia and China to broker a peace deal. No mother raises her boy to be a soldier, and no mother should have to go through losing her child to imperial greed. Pursue a doctrine of arbitration in pursuit of a lasting and prospering peace amongst nations. Encourage our allies to begin decolonization. Military: See military strength Economy: Nationalize all public utilities, such as water, mail, rail, telegrams ect, as well as the steel, banking, and shipping industry. Increase and introduce social welfare benefits for the elderly, the disabled, and those unable to work. Empower worker protections and trade unions. I support a full employment economy meaning we must be vigilant against misguided attempts to raise interests rates. Enact programs to provide public housing to the poor Trade: While I support expanded trade, we must be mindful that we don't forget to properly protect our workers from the machinations of big business. Budget: Focus on how the government can help people, a deficit and debt is fine. Social Harmony: Relax the people's anxieties of war by securing a peace deal. Immigration: Relax Immigration restrictions. Mood of the people: No coment. Party Power: The SLP is the only party that has consistently fought for the american people instead of serving the interests of banking and industry, and I will spare no effort to help fellow members get elected. President Popularity: N/A Extra: Legalise Homosexuality

    I don't think that comparison is fair, Ojeda is much more progressive than either Clinton ever was.

    How'd your state races/local races go (If your involved)

    Shame that a state with a history that includes the Harlan County war would turn their back on Unions. I always wondered why so called "libertarians" would be against collective bargaining, and unionism.

    The wreath thing is a non issue, no apology needed. He shouldn't have apologized for the Holocaust memorial event. the IHRA guidelines are just used to shut down criticism of Israel and the labour party was right to ignore them. Attacking Zionism isn't an attack on jews especially the way Jeremy Corbyn used it, simple as that.

    I's this about him criticizing Israel, because that's not anti-semitism, that's criticizing a state committing humanitarian travesties, unless you mean to say we can't criticize the house of saud or North Korea.

    If he resigns, let's not sell Mr. Corbyn out he could very well be prime-minister.

    To be fair wasn't the Labour party founded as explicitly a Socialist party with clause 4 and all?

    There's also the putting kids into concentration camps detention centers, so it's a bit more than saying mean things.
