    Agree. It's a bad sign. Right now only about 30% of the local, state and Federal Tax revenue collected in this country goes to public goods (infrastructure, defense, schools, etc.).

    The other 70% goes to OTHER PEOPLE. So, We Already Have Socialism. And, That's why the Country is such a Mess.

    Most of the Government doesn't actually govern anything anymore and exists only to manage this redistribution or to service itself.

    All of the Democrats (and most of the republicans) are already Socialists. The only difference with Bernie is at least he's being honest about it.

    The problem with Socialism is that When you punish labor and production and reward loafing around, more and more people start loafing around.

    If you want to see what the end state of socialism looks like (when the tax base leaves and everyone left gives up and stops producing), go to any of the 30 progressive Utopian cities listed on Mjonrs list.

    It bodes well for the country that more people support even those flawed candidate that the full-on bigoted nut-bags that the Republicans have running, at least near the top of the race.

    According to the numbers in this thread......the GOP turnout was 186,795 to the Dims 171,109. I don't know what kind of Math they teach up there in the racist, Union, Slave state of Delaware. But, where Rainmaker comes from 186,795 > 171,109.

    It stands to reason that the Hillbilly and the New York Commie, Gramps were going to have more votes, Because, they're only splitting it among 3 candidates vice the RINOs Majestic 12.
