This is the biggest step towards socialism that we currently have an example of.

It just goes to show you that the idiot conservatives here don't know the difference between communism and socialism.

A large portion of the idiot conservatives are even complaining that the liberals aren`t defending the government here so they are putting up straw man arguments.

This is quite disgusting.

@Slut_etta what if they say you will get paid 15 dollars an hour if you give then 47% of your work day?

@elderban99 This also stops big business from driving small farmers out of business. It was a necessary evil when the scheme was developed. And if they stopped the program, all these same people would be in another video "government killed my raisin farm"

@randonxnp they have to be fair across the board. All farmers benefit from the artificially high price. You cannot benefit from it without participating. If they want to sell their raisin in foreign countries without price control, then they won't have to give up the percentage.

It's a natural mistake considering that the underlying philosophies differ only by degree, and not very much at that.

I couldn`t disagree more. I think it`s no more correct, and no more helpful to a discussion, than it would be for me to start calling every conservative on IAB a fascist.

I think you may be confusing the words *Communist* and *liberal*.

@S4S "Liberals ruin everything they touch."

Yeah, like Thomas Jefferson and the Declaration of Independence. What a piece of crap that was.


The founders had almost NOTHING in common with today's "liberals" -- Obama, Reed, Pelosi, Schumer, Bloomberg, etc. Today`s so-called liberals are more accurately called "statists." Their lives are entirely devoted to using the coercive power of government to boss people around and take their stuff. They`re the exact polar OPPOSITE of Jefferson, Madison, Washington, Franklin, and the other founders.
