    “…spend tens of millions of dollars to buy elections.”

    Ah – $1billion by HillBillary is OK, but $10million by Bllomberg is not – righto then.

    “If you can’t build grassroots support for your candidacy…”

    How do you get “grassroots support” if no-one knows you are running and what you stand for?

    Oh – sorry. Leftist. No logic allowed. My Bad. Carry on…

    Millionaire leftist denounces billionaire leftist.

    Bernie Sanders Explains Why He’s A Millionaire (Apr 2019)

    Enjoy your new stents Mr Sanders while you have life and breath.
    Maybe read a Bible too. Could be important.

    I’m disgusted by the idea that Michael Bloomberg or any billionaire thinks they can circumvent the political process and spend tens of millions of dollars to buy elections.

    Sanders has collected $74 million and spent $45 million so far in his 2020 campaign, so WTF is he on about?

    Simple. Sanders is spending other people’s tens of millions. Bloomberg is spending his own.

    8. Equal liability of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.
    9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of all the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the populace over the country.

    Establishment of “industrial armies”? This from a pack of lying cheating theiving bastards who have never done a productive days work in their lives , the worst bunch of killers in history the socialists Hitler,Stalin Mao. pol pot ,guevarra etc etc ..

    1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.

    So that’s why they keep pushing for an efficient land tax.

  11. If no one owns the land, how can you tax it?

    A low rated land tax on UCV is far more preferable to a progressive income tax.

    Hey Doctor Fred!
    Mao died in 1976. Try and keep up with things! The People’s Republic of China that exists today and has so far raised half a billion people out of abject poverty has nothing to do with Mao. It is entirely as a result of the foresight and courage of one man, Deng Xiaoping. Might I suggest you check the history of this great man instead of demonstrating your biased ignorance with a string of inappropriate adjectives addressed, in at least one case, to an irrelevant individual.

  13. Dr Fred Lenin

    The present regime followed on from Maos excesses wouldt be there without his actions .

  14. Zatara

    There were over 6.5 billion copies of Mao’s Little Red Book printed.

    I don’t recall them being recalled and burned.

  15. Robert Betterman

    Hey Zatara,
    Your assertion can not be substantiated and is therefore probably bullshit. I bet you don’t recall any of the citizens of the PRC taking any notice of the “Book” these days, because there are none. I challenge you to give examples of how the “Book” is influencing current Chinese government policy.

  16. Robert Betterman

    Thank you Dr. Fred,
    It wouldn’t be a worthwhile List of Respondents without the contributions of an incompetent self opinionated reader who defends his position with nonsensical gobbledygook rather than facts. Good on you. Your have maintained the low standards of debate currently evident at all levels of public discourse and government today.

  17. Zatara

    Hey BB, nobody gives a shit what you think.

    Deal with it.
