The only way they will change is if they get hit with a 2"x4" in their own life experiences. I have learned I am a lot happier just ignoring libs who are lost in their own fantasy world.
Quote from: midcan5 on October 02, 2018, 05:23:30 AMAmerica's golden years according to historians was from FDR to Reagan, we were the leading industrial nation then and we were rebuilding America after the war. That has changed radically, you only have to check where everything you own is made and look around on a highway drive too. What was different then? One thing I can tell you from my own experience was corporations cared for their employees and unions fought for the working class, and taxes on the wealthy ranged from 70 to 90% as they benefited most from our system of government and economic polices. Today when I drive the back roads of America I see closed businesses and shuttered stores. My grandparents and parents walked to work in steel and clothing manufacturer. The city and the rural areas died with globalism and outsourcing and the bottom line mentality. Anyone here experience downsizing or right sizing? Enter today's gig economy and baby boomer world of finance and global markets. Who here makes an effort to support American products? Trump talks a good story but his own products were made off shore, and his bankruptcies in AC did not help jobs. Automation too has a had a great impact. Personally I think it may come down to UBI due to the lack of work that pays enough to live well. "President Eisenhower describes his administration's political philosophy as 'dynamic conservatism,' then as 'progressive, dynamic conservatism,' then as 'progressive moderation,' then as 'moderate progressivism,' and then as 'positive progressivism.'"
