Progress? Progressive?

https://www.nationofchange.org/2017/05/28/capitalism-american-style-a-failing-sy...

This is what Trump zeroed in on in his campaign. He knew the secret to capturing the hearts and minds of the ordinary Americans who are mentioned as the victims in this article.

But it was all lies. Now it's just a matter of how long it will take ordinary Americans to figure out how badly they were all snookered by Trump.

When they had to stop calling themselves 'liberals' because the once proud label was terminally soiled by collectivism, they decided to go back to the 'progressive' label.

It's just their usual false and deceptive advertising.

What you are saying is "progress" is a return to a mercantile system of political economy well know from history. Ancient history.

As a classical liberal, I had no use for Trump at all, but the fact that you hate him so much makes me like him a bit now and then.

And I think he did very well in Europe.

All Americans probably get at least the bare minimum in health care.


Jeff is a lying sack of crap. Everyone over here has a sister, an uncle, a friend, someone... who has died because they couldn't get care. I don't even have any friends due to being a socially inept genius and I know someone who died of stomach cancer. Because they couldn't get treatment.

Speaking of "socially responsible capitalism" how well do you think this is going to work out?

The sad truth of course and Trump actually played on it during his campaign. And slowly, as the pain of no decent health care gets greater for so many Americans, they are going to remember Trump's promises and start asking why he lied.

And you're suggesting that Trump is trying to lead that horse? If so then it's an easy argument to defeat.
