Sanders: The Perfect Democrat; and Why he will lose

Doesn't say anything about social security or medicare users benefits being cut.

They are cutting waste from the programs not benefits.

Pffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffft, sure.

What is Medicare's administrative overhead cost versus that of private hellthcare insurance again?

There are always going to be exogenous events that always create deviations from a planned economy.
Sure. Bad weather in crop-growing areas is a good example. But these can be anticipated and managed, including via a planned contraction which is very different from the free-fall that occurs in a bear market.

Mayor
I thought cons on here said the party had already picked Biden. Were they wrong?
Actually, the TAXPAYERS here (also known as the intelligent majority of Americans you know as Mainstream Conservatives) have been enjoying buckets of popcorn at this clusterfuq. We knew Quid Pro Quo Joe was put in to keep Crazy Bernie from getting the nomination, but the cabal in Washington never figured Joe to be such a shitty candidate. Now they are scrambling, and Mayor ButtPlug might be the only thing keeping the old communist from getting the delegates he is rapidly earning.

We don't really care who the nominee is because Trump is the best president in history. We're in the greatest economy in history and Trump is a smarter campaigner and strategist than ANY of the Democrats today. He is always several steps ahead of them.

The Democrats don't want Bernie up there because the man is too honest about his communist beliefs, something the Democrat leadership has been trying to hide.

What Republicans mean when they say “waste” is money going to working-class retirees when it could be going to rich Republicans and big corporations.

Why would you plan a contraction?
Marxists are any better at predicting the future than capitalists. In either case they are going to make preparations for what they believe will be the worst case scenario, and then the worst case scenario is much worse than they expect.

Again, in response to circumstances unfavorable to growth.

The contraction of the american empire is a given, when and how will be determined by our own arrogance and hubris.

NSDAP Kanzler
But Nazi is short for National-Socialist.
Yes, it is. It was originally coined as an insult and continues to be used as such today. Because National Socialism is so widely misunderstood and reflexively maligned, and because "NAZI" was co-opted by violent thugs, followers of true National Socialism try to avoid the term.

“Typical boom/bust cycles” are not only typical but inevitable under capitalism.
True. Doesn't negate my original point.
38% of business economists expect a recession this year and more than 70% expect one either this year or in 2021.
So it's as i said; the majority of economists expect the economy to keep growing for some time. A recession before the elections is unlikely; a severe crash, less likely.

Communism is the second way
True.
the only alternative to the capitalist blind alley
False. NS, despite communists' never-ending labeling of everything they don't like as capitalist, isn't capitalist. All functioning large economies balance economic freedom with controls. Capitalism and Communism both get it wrong, and with negative consequences not just for the working folks' physical but also spiritual well-being. Both seek to control. NS seeks to nurture.
and fascism (including its Nazi variant) quibble over at the margins.
One can only call NS capitalist if one labels any degree of economic freedom -- which NS has -- as "capitalist."
There is no economic necessity for such under a planned economy
True. Also true under a guided economy, such as advocated by NS. Communism suppresses all economic freedom and eradicates the individual rewards of it. The collective is all and all are brought to lowest common point. NS, by contrast, permits economic freedom and the rewards of it, constraining and managing it all for the good of the people and nation. Much of US law is supposed to do the same but doesn't because government is in the hands of capital and the masters of it rather than in the hands of the people.

I find it funny that the entire establishment, "both" sides for those of you who still buy into that, is shatting themselves.
How so?

Actually we bailed out capitalism recently with socialism to save capitalism from its own endogenous malfeasance.
To some, poorly implemented, degree. Less with socialism, really, than with fascism.

Well said, btw, "endogenous malfeasance."

The contraction of the american empire is a given
and not a bad thing...
when and how will be determined by our own arrogance and hubris.
Nah, by those who chose for it to happen ... unless we the people make it otherwise.
