The value proposition of socialism is very simple:
You can tell the leftist Democrats and Republicans to end all firearm infringements, stop lying about white policeman, re-start amendment 10, re-start the Bill of Rights, stop the government from intimidating the press, and stop handing out huge sums of money to corporations all you want…..
But unless you offer them more money and preferential, prefixed-rights than the socialist politicians are offering them, they will continue to say what the socialist politicians and press reward them to say.
And the lies will get bigger and bigger – their lies become your laws. And as the populace grows poorer, the socialists’ offer of political heroin looks more and more intoxicating.
