If there was ever a cautionary tale this is the place.  The US is going to have to be involved.  China and Russia aren’t going to sit back.

Prime example of why you should oppose lying, cheating, fatass conmen who loot others for personal gain, attack the press, cozy up to other dictators and win elections despite the majority of people not supporting them.

The ones that get help from Russian cleptocrats are the worst.

Of course some people vote for those types. Man, what kind of idiot would do that?

Do you think if you just put words together they will somehow be true?

Why are you so dumb?

Damn it’s so easy to trigger you.  You are not capable of any conversation with are going off on a tangent.  This thread is a prime example.  You could have offered commentary based on what you know and have a meaningful discussion.  Of course you can’t do that.

I guess I misjudged you…I figured you would comprehend.

You said it was a cautionary tale and I agreed with you.
It’s exactly why I oppose half assed fraudulent wanna be dictators who loot the same people they claim to represent.

I’m sorry you don’t.

I appreciate you agreeing, but you get around the world a lot and you have a unique insight on world events that I truly would like to hear about.  You have probably been to some really dodgy places that has no chance of a quick fix and It would be interesting to pick your brain in a non-political way.  Are you game?

Sure. Most failed states in the world fail because of corrupt leadership. Venezuela is no exception and we will go the same route if one major party accepts cheating to stay in power.

But don’t those failed states all have something in common?  All of these places have citizens that have loss the ability to provide for themselves and their families.  The Governments can provide what they promised and the people revolt.

I know you watch an episode of Tucker Carlson or the Ingraham Angle and run here to tell me all the interesting stuff you learned, but spare me the crap about how we are going to turn into Venezuela if we don’t cut social security or Medicare. It’s nonsense told to sheep to get them to stay in line while they are slaughtered by the people they vote for.

It’s a pretty simple math equation. You want more things? Pay for it. You want a failed state. Loot it.

Is Alaska’s permanent fund leading to a failed state?

I rarely watch any of the evening news shows.  Waste of my time. I spend the evenings with my family.

It really is that simple…You may want to add if you can’t pay for it to begin with then don’t buy it on credit.

You are comparing Alaska to Venezuela? A state of around 750,000 to a national of 32 million?  Alaska is paying people to come to the state.

Yeah we definitely shouldn’t buy walls or cut taxes when we are in debt right? That’s your position? I mean it requires credit right? Can you imagine voting for the party who has run up trillions in debt over the past 40 years? How bout voting for the guy who has been cheating millions through bankruptcy and not paying his bills for decades?

Alaska is Sharing the profits of its wealth with its people. What a concept…imagine a society that brings all of its citizens into the fold instead of concentrating wealth at the top?

Don’t you ever get tired of being on the wrong side?

Obama ran up 9.3 Trillion in his 8 years.  That’s more than all of the other Presidents combined. My problem with you is that you only see one party, the GOP, to blame and NEVER..EVER the Democrats.  I don’t ever recall you ever taking a serious swipe and the Dem’s which tells me you think not only are they right but can do absolutely no wrong.

Alaska is Sharing the profits of its wealth with its people. What a concept…imagine a society that brings all of its citizens into the fold instead of concentrating wealth at the top?

With a state holding an embarrassment wealth (the the Dem’s fight against exploiting) in a state so sparsely populated they can spread the wealth. 

Don’t you ever get tired of being on the wrong side?

The jury’s out on if it’s the wrong side but at least I make a choice and don’t piss my vote away for a non-player.

No the Jury isnt out…you just pretend that none of it is true. This is by far the most corrupt administration in history and it isn’t even close. Don’t worry the reckoning is coming and your team will be sent to the wilderness…

Why do I need to take shots at the democrats? You do with every post. I am just pointing out your lies and hypocrisy…just like the lie you just posted about Obama.

Here is a website that will educate you a little. Its called context. You should try to use it.

Some people have to clean up the messes your team makes. Rest assured it will take several presidents and decades to unfuck this cluster you voted for. Most of us knew better…too bad you didn’t. I suspect you did…but the dark side is so much more tempting. If only there was a book that told us how we should act…

So what you are saying is that if I start saying nice things about democrats you will turn on them?

Nah, I don’t like echo chambers of bullshit. Modern day “conservatives” only survive in those. It’s why all your intellectuals have left. When George Will is voting for Democrats you all are truly lost. BTW that happened two years ago.
