    I guess they would prefer one counter narrative. You let in more then one and people will question Trump more

    If Bernie, or to a lesser degree Warren, wins the democratic nomination, they will be playing " the socialists are coming" scare tactic. We will get to know all about Venezuela's socialism. The problem with that is medicare for all, taxing the rich more and bringing our troops home polls well with poor republicans and they might just ignore that ploy.

    What if I told you that they would play the "the socialists are coming" tactic if the Democrats elected Justin Amash or Bill Weld as their nominee?
    Think long and hard about why you respond to nonsense. Please!

    Do you realize what you just wrote? Bernie is a self described socialist and has been since the start. He takes pride in it.

    The Republicans will call whomever the Democrats run a socialist. It truly doesnít matter what the personís ideas are. They will put that trope on the barbie and try to fry it.

    Where in my post did I deny that Bernie is a socialist? The thrust of my post was that the republican will use "socialism" as a fear tactic to replace 2016's "crook Hillary" ploy. They will use the fear of socialism on Warren, who screams from the rooftop that she is a capitalist.

    It will be the new boogie man.

    Oh, I get it, to you socialism is to be feared. LOL. Remember to check under your bed tonight, before you go to sleep.

    Because it's not a scare tactic if the person is actually a socialist trying to promote socialism, it's pointing out reality.

    What you're saying is the equivalent to me saying what are you afraid of being pro-life, wussy?

    I totally get it, in the past democrats were unfairly called socialists and commies, etc. I was called that back when I was anti-Bush, pissed me off because I wasn't one. Bernie is a socialist, plain and simple.

    A man can be pure of heart and deed. Says his prayers at night in the light of the God. but that won't protect him when socialism come to ravages his soul by the light of the full moon.

    Quit playing like we are all idiots here. fear tactic is used often in politic. Fox often equate socialism to the cesspool of Venezuela instead of the Nordic countries in Europe every freaking day. Saying if America adopts more socialistic program we will turn into a fail state like Venezuela.

    Left-leaning networks or Podcast: Democracy Now!, The Hill, Kim Iversen, The Humanist Report. The last two are more commentary oriented then reporting but all give you a general idea of what issues are important to leftist while being more accessible to non-leftist then other left-wing outlets like TYT. The download is usually seven to twenty minutes long. They rake wall street democrat like Biden, who have spent his whole career silencing liberals and leftist within his own party, over the coals.
    Democracy Now! is a propaganda outlet, The Hill is left leaning but pretty good overall news agency, Humanist Report Sucks.
    Kim Iversen is fantastic, though her opinion on China's foreign investments is totally uninformed, and her opinions on Venezuela are to conspiratorial and completely ignore how incompetent that country is. Otherwise I love her stuff.

    TYT is absolute garbage. Complete trash.

    But I'm going to backtrack a bit. I actually think he outright lies less than I implied. I think his main problem is that he just can't admit that he was wrong about things, and doesn't care when he is.

    The other problem is his brain. I truly think when he says "720 million women" it was less a lie than...well...a gaff. It's so preposterously wrong. That's a gaff. Or his brain dissolving. So like, of course people aren't going to fixate on the lie, and instead are talking about how gaff prone he is. Hell, Stephen Colbert asked him to his face if he "was going nuts"!!!!


    I can find articles critical of his gaffs and propensity to say indefensible things literally on every outlet there is within one minute on google. But the one that I just found that I think nailed the head on the hammer in the simplest of was was this.

    Maybe Joe Biden's False War Story Was a Lie. Or Maybe It Was Something Worse.

    https://www.esquire.com/news-politic...nitive-issues/

    They seem like gaffs. It just seems like he's not all there.

    What other lies would you like to talk about? I'm down. I hate Joe...but I think the distinction between what he's doing and what Trump does is significant.
    Those are absolutely left institutions, they're just not "True Progressive"(TM).

    That's because those Nordic countries are just high tax welfare states that still practice free market capitalism, which you don't have in socialist countries...like Venazuela.
