I get that Trump was trying to cover base with Pence on his side. It's still a bad idea to get anyone popular by evangelicals to gain power. The fundamentalist religious assholes need to be thrown out of the conservative base. Catholics and other religious groups against abortion will still side with Republicans even if they don't have any representation. The issue of abortion alone is good enough for them.

And yet the USSR still fell apart because of economic troubles.

Going back to their GDP growing it's mostly because Russia's GDP was at fucking rock bottom. Anything would have been better than the chaos of the revolution and the restructuring that followed. After that there was war where many of their materials were supplied by the US. Following that was their expansion into multiple foreign nations helping to bolster their economy further.

The USSR's economy was a joke

The soviet system collapsed because of Gorbachev's failures as a leader. The majority of soviet citizens did not want the union to dissolve, and even today most russians lament the fall of the USSR. If it was so terrible and there was no food and shit like the media would have you believe, they wouldn't have wanted to remain under the "oppressive" system.

>>719721139
Yeah, and everyone can start their own business? Who would work there? You need capital to start a business and the mass of laborers cannot get capital because everything they earn must be spent on shelter and food to survive. Even then they need government assistance like welfare.

So stale was the Soviet economy that the typical Russian had nothing to spend their money on. You know what they did with all that money? They saved it. Either in the bank or in shoe boxes. They had so much saved that a typical worker could take a year or two off from work and live off their savings. Socialism is shitty system.

Get a loan or get a job and save some money so you can have capital to start a business

Once you start your own business then you can hire people to run the business and you never have to work again!

>get a loan

You need collateral for a loan. What collateral does the laborer have? The average laborer needs to spend all their money to survive, how will they save? Your position so far is pretty naive, that everyone has a chance and everyone can pull themselves up by their bootstraps. That's simply not the case.

The USSR was state capitalist, not socialist. Under a capitalist system things inevitably degrade. Shit may be ok now but it will just get worse. What happens once climate change catches up to us? When we can't export all our hard, oppressive labor needs to third world countries?

pretty impossible to do since I work mixed shifts at my current job. Not many people want employees with a schedule like "monday, wednesday and fridays" and I can't quit my job without another one because I would risk losing my apartment and livlihood.
For example, my ex girlfriend once applied for a job and quit hers only to be told a week later after they hired her that her position was filled.

>>719722742
Let's imagine that everyone took a fat shit on your chest at the same time. Wouldn't that be insane?

That's what your argument sounds like. Imagine everyone does that? There is no world where everyone will try to start a business. Most people don't want nor have the capacity to. But, because every successful business means a higher demand for jobs, that means that if many (not all) people create businesses, that will mean more choice and better wages for workers.

The problem right now is that there is a stunt in entrepreneurial growth. There are barriers to entry that don't need to be there. Remove the barriers, let people start businesses unabated, and competition will work to benefit everyone like it always has.

>>719723825
because thats not how economics works kiddo. Finish high school then come back and talk with the adults.
>>
>>719723730
That was my point! Not everyone can start a business so your idea that the poor are just lazy is bullshit. Some people have to be poor for the system to work.

The more successful a business gets the more the wealth concentrates at the top because of all the excess wealth being created and not given to the workers. These big business owners then purposefully buy out and monopolize to stop others from coming up because they know there have to be poor people

>>719723825
That's not feasible in a capitalist economy

youre trying to get some kind of "Cause that would be dumb" response, so i dont know what to tell you.

The more people not dying from poverty is a good thing. The more people educated is a good thing. The more people fed is a good thing.

Some how you think one guy owning more food then he could ever eat in a lifetime is okay even if 1000 people die because he didnt fairly give it out. He doesnt have to give it out for free obviously, but not at some astronomical price.
>>
>>719723809
Then get a b e t t e r j o b. Minimum wage provides you with what you need to survive which is what someone is arguing people need to be paid. If you're on minimum wage and you can afford all your bills but nothing luxurious or any really big dreams then isn't minimum wage working as intended?

Are you talking about part time workers or full time workers? If the full time workers can get by without welfare then once again, isn't welfare working as intended?

>a business

First off, my whole point is that many people starting businesses is where the benefit comes, ie competition. Not everyone can start a business, but most dont need to. Those that do create jobs and demands, which boosts wages and makes it so less people are poor.

But, that's not the situation were in right now, I agree with ya. But we disagree on why. The main reason wealth "concentrates at the top" has less to do with free markets and more to do with crony capitalism and manufactured barriers to entry. The main reason big business owners buy out others and monopolize (in some industries) is because of the barriers to entry that only big companies can wade through and take advantage of.

tl;dr: Your fear of monopoly is a direct result of government intervention, not capitalism. And even worse monopoly results from a centrally-run economy.

went to school for awhile as a computer science major, got on the deans list even. Got cellulitis half way in though and was hospitalized. Now they want me to pay back the loans before returning to school.
Which.. I'm just... Not paying at the moment.
They are just going to have to wait until after I finish paying back my medical bills from the infection.
Applied for a couple places in the comp sci field anyway. None will give me the time of day without a degree though. During one interview I even shook hands with the boss and welcomed me on the team only to have the hiring manager tell me shortly before my first day that I forgot to provide information on my degree.
All my other skills are pretty worthless. I can cook everything from italian, mexican, greek, and even vietnamese food.
I can draw, sculpt and paint, I can make my own wine, pressed my own olive oil, made my own yogurts and cheeses, and have done glass and copper distilling, I can hunt, tanned my own leather, taught myself how to repair everything on my car. Replaced the calipers, changed break pads, shit like that.
In the meantime I have no major artery in my left leg.

They create openings for exploitation. The wage system is exploitation no matter how highly you pay them, unless they pay them exactly the amount of wealth they generate in which case it's not even a wage.

Capitalism inevitably degenerates into crony capitalism, which is why everywhere started out as capitalist and is now crony capitalist. The government intervenes because big business buys it and makes it happen

Of minimum wage rises, my business goes under do to my massive overhead. When my business goes under, my employees lose their jobs, along with myself. When we're jobless, we have no money.

A socialist economy would not work the same as a capitalist one and therefore known measures of the success of a capitalist economy would not be accurate.

For example, in a socialist economy unemployment would be a good thing because it would mean there are more people than need to work. In capitalism most everyone has to work and that creates a lot of needless excess, like all the food that gets thrown out and all the goods that sit in the back of stores not getting sold.

In which case maybe that company shouldn't be operating in the first place.

The real answer to that is to use people's pettiness and fear to keep them from doing these things. You set up a system where people are encouraged to spy on their neighbours, to report their family and to suck up to the government that's obviously necessary to provide that threat of force.

How retarded could you possibly be. They don't do the same work as everyone else but maintaining a company is a lot of fucking work.

>i changed your concept and now its terrible. how could you let this happen

>>719726994
A variety of reasons, not just one.

After all the suffering of the russian civil war the people didn't have the strength to finish the transition and so stayed state capitalist. Mao Zedong died and his successors decided to keep it state capitalist to keep wealth for themselves.

nah there is some truth to that. I worked in the media back in the day, and we would do shit to Clinton's pics all the time. Always use the one that makes him look guilty blah blah blah.

But if you look around the better news orgs do use a mix of photos, including some pretty presidential ones of Trump.

btw, as someone who clearly throws around the "msm" tag - please do yourself a favor and do your own fact checking ok? I think you are going to find that while the msm is biased ( and corrupt at some level due to the nature of corporate ownership ) - it is pretty rare for them to just make shit up. Our new president lies constantly, says whatever he needs/wants to, and blames criticism on the msm.

That is some serious bullshit. I've never seen a politician in the US lie the way that Trump does. Sure on a few issues ( say global warming or guns or unions or whatever ) - but not just balls to the wall "fuck you I'll say what I want doesn't matter if it is true" lying.

You gotta watch out for people like that.

Yes, and it's obviously work you can't do or you'd be one of them

>>719727678
But how do you get to your concept. How do you eliminate human greed. Nobody has given me an answer to that yet besides "we make them lol"

>>719727691
Hmm and I wonder why the people in power did that. The answer couldn't possibly be because they were greedy was it?

they don't even do that you scrub. the wealthy kids I know vacay in different countries, have massive trust funds, no one gives a fuck. if they want to "work" they have hook ups in london and bankok and hk, nyc and fucking everywhere. Instant admission to top colleges, economic schools etc if they are willing to put in any amount of work.

you are like those broke ass rednecks in the country who don't even realize how poor they are. Shit you probably think you have it "good" if you get a few grand back from the government at tax time.

this is a problem with any of the "utopian" governments. I don't have an answer, no one really does. I mean it is hard for people to even sacrifice for their own families... much less your enemies.

But that doesn't mean there isn't something valuable to be gained from those systems. And if you look at the people behind these discussions , there is almost always common ground. We all want what is good for us and our families. We all love people. We fear losing the things we care about.

>>719728109
No matter how much you tell us to be quiet, or use sexist and racist terms to hurt us, we will still stand up for what we think is right. Yes, we cry - today is a dark fucking day for democracy. But we will turn it to our advantage and build a better country as a result.

>>719727949
So you're just going to ignore all the rich people that do work to maintain their fortunes and focus on their children? Even those trust fund babies do work by your own admission.

How does me being poor mean that the rich don't work at all?

and how are you supposed to save enough money to open a business when most established businesses in this country have all decided to pay less than livable wages?

You're right, and there are good ideas to be had from every political system. These utopian systems are an interesting thought experiment but they're impossible to bring into being. What you can do is take their more moderate, achievable goals and incorporate them into your system and when the time is right for them even the more extreme ones.

However, the more extreme measures are emergency measures and should be discarded once they've stabilized the situation. There's no reason why good socialist ideas can't be incorporated into a democracy. The same can be said of facism.

1. MAKE MORE MONEY GEE THATS EASY. JUST TELL YOUR BOSS TO GIVE YOU MORE AND HE WILL YAY CONSERVATISM

2. Yea boi stop flipping burgers and get a career even though all careers take a college education and getting one of those in the lower classes is basically impossible unless you literally don't make mistakes on anything in school and/or you're a super-athlete. Barring that you are born a plebian and you will die a plebian. Capitalism at works bois, so gr8 and flawless

3. Dumb and lazy? Oh ok, sure. its not like its almost certain that he is just in a situation where advance is impossible since he doesn't have the meaningless slip of paper to advance in his field, and getting that slip costs tens of thousands of dollars, which if you're in lower middle class/poverty, is pretty much impossible.
>when conservatives understand nothing about fucking anything
