Corporate Establishment dick sucker Anthony Rendon blocked SB-562 not even allowing it to be put up for a vote, I know what you're thinking, how Democratic of him... As you can probably tell by the title of this post, I'm quite vehemently pissed the fuck off!!! Luckily though I'm not the only one & many principled Progressives & Liberals have been swarming this motherfucker with phone calls, in-person protest, & blowing up his social media accounts. Although there is that smaller group of fringe uneducated misinformed low-information "Blue No Matter Who" morons & their Republican buddies I want to address. You know who they are, the dumb fucking morons who say shit like, "Take some responsibility for yourself." or, "Stop being lazy & wanting free stuff handed to you."
When people often argue with the term "free stuff" they are often referring to socialist programs paid for by tax payer dollars. Socialism isn't a horrible idea when implemented properly. Socialism is working fantastically in other countries that have implemented it in many ways such as Norway, Sweden, & Denmark for example. If you go down the line on individual programs you can see countries like those beat us in almost every category including among others healthcare, education, or lower crime rates. In fact, during 2016 a study showed Denmark was once again ranked number one in The World Happiness Report. The study takes a variety of factors into account, (Among Other Things) It looked into people's health & access to healthcare, family relations, job security, as well as social factors like political freedom & Government corruption.
I have personally taken the liberty of looking into the different definitions of Socialism & the definition recognizable by most people is, "Any of various economic & political theories advocating collective or Governmental ownership & administration of the means of production & distribution of goods or services." So based on that definition you can find right here in the U.S. that some of our most cost effective, efficient, & popular programs are pure Socialism, such as The Roads/Highways, Public Libraries, The Post Office, Public Schools, Public Parks, The Sewer System, The Fire Department, The Police Department, The Military, State & Snow Removal, Town / State-Run Beaches, Unemployment Insurance, Social Security, etc… etc... When you say you hate Socialism ("free stuff") so much & really dislike it as much as you claim, I recommend you stop being a hypocrite & stop using all of these programs immediately!
Also don't forget our last Socialist President who is arguably one of the best presidents we've ever had was so vehemently popular they had to invent term limits because he just kept getting elected over & over again. The one thing FDR did that modern day Progressives & Liberals condemn him for is the one thing that modern day Republicans praise him for. President Trump during his campaign advocated for the idea of bringing back internment camps for an entire religious group (Muslims) in a country that has put so much emphasis on making part of its foundation to include freedom of religion. On the other hand real Progressives, Liberals, & Socialist support FDR for his Socialist Left Wing ideals such as being against the corruptive influence of big business & money in politics. FDR was able to implement Social Security, but what would have been FDR's greatest achievement was his second Bill Of Rights which included the right of Employment, food, clothing & leisure, via enough income to support them, farmers right to a fair income, freedom from unfair competition & monopolies, housing, medical care, Social Security, & education.
In fact our current Healthcare System will cost us 49 trillion dollars over the next ten years, a federal Single-Payer Medicare-For-All healthcare system would only cost about 32 trillion dollars in the same span of time effectively saving us seventeen trillion dollars. It would also provide better quality care, it could cut health care costs in half, & it would have the added benefit of covering every man woman & child in the entire country. There is a reason why every other Modern Nation on the face of the Earth has implemented one version or another of single-payer healthcare. It's cost effective, efficient, & vehemently popular.
this issue is brought up, Rendon & his uneducated sheep only seems
to talk about Trumpcare to dodge the subject of Single-Payer. This issue
really has nothing to do with Donald Trump or his shit healthcare plan.
I've been attacking Establishment Democrats far before Donald Trump
even ran for president. If anything, the fact that Donald Trump's
healthcare plan is so dangerously detrimental to the country is even
more of a reason why Democrats should be fighting for Single-Payer more
Especially on the state level in a blue state where it is a more tangible goal so that at least people within those states that would be negatively affected by Trumpcare won't actually be affected, because they would be saved by single-payer. One of the greatest quotes on this issue is, "The way you protect people (In California) from Trumpcare is you pass single-payer in California" -Jimmy Dore.
So I'll leave you with this... The next time someone tells you that Socialism is an attempt for the Government to grow out of control & take over every aspect of your life, or they claim it's just used to provide free stuff to lazy people, disregard the over the top ridiculousness of that type of rhetoric because It's nothing more than an incorrect regurgitated Political Right Wing talking point not tethered to any form of reality. My name is Joshua Hill & I am a Progressive Liberal Socialist because I am always aiming to be a better open minded person who advocates for the betterment of mankind. So now you have to ask yourself… what kind of person are YOU?
