  1. Nobody is stopping you from giving goods and services to the poor for free. But the government takes my money by force and then spends 90% of it to support the bureaucracy and 10% gives to the poor – that’s a problem.

    • Nobody is stopping you from being a whiner and blaming your problems on others. And, “the government takes my money by force”. Wow. So true. They show up at your door with guns and knives.

    • That is how democracy works. If the majority wants it that way, then minority is forced to follow.

      Only alternatives is either anarchy/ultra libertarianism, where the few will force the majority or totalitarism where everyone will be forced.

      Democracy is not perfect, but the alternatives are far worse.

    • There is a difference between democracy and mob-rule, and it is not subtle.

    • *In the U.S., most of that 90% is actually spent on the Military.

      **Healthcare is for everyone, not just the poor.

      That’s democracy. If you don’t like it, vote for a change. If it doesn’t work, persuade others to vote for a change. If there is no one worthy to vote for, it is up to you to become one of the options available. The most important thing about democracy is not that it allows you to vote for someone, it is that you can actually get votes of other people.

  2. Socialists are very generous when they are spending other people’s money.

      And they ALLWAYS run out of other people’s money to spend.

    • Not so dumb as those two before December 26, 2020

      True. Fascist don’t spend other people’s money. They just keep it for themselves. That’s why socialists are more popular.

    • American puritan logic. If you are poor or sick God hates you and you deserve it. So, don’t help the poor or sick. It’s God will. Christian Iran.

    • There are no Socialist in the government. But don’t let that stop you from lies and hyperbole.

    • True. The American “left” would be at least conservative in any other part of the world. Mostly far right.

  3. Personal responsibility. No where in the constitution does it say I have to give a sh&@ about you, or that you have to give a shi#* about me.

    • “Personal responsibility” is just an excuse for victim blaming.

      Selfish people may be the downfall of America.

      You have no rights unless you fight for it. If you do you are a terrorist. American 1% slaveholder logic.

    • Donkey dude, your sarcasm is lost on the simple minds here. The level of “discussion” in this site is: “America bad!”, “No, Europe bad!”, “No, AMERICA BAD!!!”, “No, EUROP…, you stupid!” “No, YOU stupid!” “No, YOU STUPID!!!”.

    • stupid jack

  5. The word “Terrorist” was first used to describe Americans because they hid behind trees to shoot rather then standing in lines like the British did. Worked well.

    • Not quite true. While it was first attested around the same time, it was, however, not used to describe americans, but French Jacobins in 1795 during the french revolutions inferno and terreur. “Those Hellhounds called Terrorist” as Edmund Burke called the antiloyalist Jacobins.

  6. Hey thanks. Like to be factual

  7. “Judge thy neighbor!”

    All the comments here by republicans make it clear, they are no longer Christians. They are not “value voters” anymore either. Just selfish.

    • Too bad they don’t realize that all the other first world countries with some form of universal healthcare insurance pay less money and get better care than we do in the U.S. (meanwhile in the U.S, our life expectancy is actually going down. )

      Big pharma appreciates all that republican support. They can charge 5x what other countries do. EpiPens are over $100.

    • Republicans are Ferengi. Ferengi do not wish to eradicate exploitation but to become the exploiters.

    • That’s right. Let’s all just kick back, throw another fetus on the fire, and talk more about how the right is doing Christianity wrong…

    • I’ve never seen anyone throw a fetus on the fire, but there is a group of people who don’t seem to care that a quarter of a million Americans have died.

    • Pr0-Lifers don’t care about life. They care about control over womens’ bodies. Sick and p3rvers.

  8. Go Jesus, it’s your birthday
    We gonna party like it’s your birthday…

    • No response. Because there is no historical proof Jesus ever existed.
      The bible is no proof. There is a book about Harry Potter, but that doesn’t mean he’s real.

  9. The number one cause of death globally is abortion. 43.7 million this last year alone. If we can tolerate that, why so upset about a 0.03 death rate for china flu?

    What Jesus did was charity and charity is not related to market dynamics.
