    The real Privileged Oppressors are multimillionaires and billionaires. Four of my great-grandfathers fought against them in Russian Civil War. Four of my great-grandmothers worked to build Soviet Russia.

    The Democratic National Committee (DNC) raised $15.4 million in online donations during President Biden's first 100 days, a sign that the party's fundraising effort is not losing steam in the post-Trump era.

    Yeah, Michael Koch and those running ALEC and the Heritage Foundation are all broke. And let;s not forget that penniless Rupert Murdoch.

    Well, at least you can make us laugh. You don't know much about conservative women, but being amusing is also valuable.

    An absolute statement would involve the word 'all'.
    When an argument cannot be sustained on proven facts, devolve to opinions and anger, that always works.

    So, small private businesses would be limited to the size they could grow to. How big would that be? What if I developed a product, like Microsoft for example, that half of the world's population would have use of, would I be restricted from selling more than a small amount of that? What if it were a vaccine to cure cancer. Should only X number of people have access to it or must I give away my work (which does not make me free but a slave in fact.
    2) Sadly, in modern USA and under Capitalism many people do not have enough food, shelter, or medical care. Thus they are not free.

    You have been reading too many left wing pamphlets. The vast majority of those that are homeless (which in itself is a very small number of the population) are homeless because of mental or substance abuse issues. In the 1980's Congress passed laws prohibiting putting those people into hospitals without their permission. So, we now see the spectacle of street people in LA, Miami and San Franciso that nothing can be done about.
    As for food, there are 100's if not 1000's of outlets for the truly poor to get meals. These PSA's you see about 1 out of 5 or 1 out of 7 children going to bed hungry are pure fantasies. We pay billions of dollars every year to provide food stamps to these children. If their parents spend that on drugs or hair weaves instead that is not a factor of capitalism but of poor life choices. Finally, the issue of health care in this country. There are many avenues that provide health care, from the fact that no one can be turned away from hospitals for emergency care to the ability to buy very low cost health insurance plans that cover major illness rather than everything from sex change operations to open heart surgery. No, one does not see 100's dead or dying on the mean streets of our major cities

    3) No one needs tens of millions -- this money would be much more useful to poor people and The State.

    So you would make me free and equal by stealing my money? What makes you any different from a bank robber or a burglar? Again I ask, what can the government do that the individual cannot? If I cannot take your money because "I need it" by what right does the government have to do the same? And exactly why would I put forth the effort to earn that money if I had it taken from me by fiat?
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    Hurry back

    I don't know if I would hold someone in high esteem who was partly responsible for the deaths of millions of people. Getting rid of the rich certainly made things much better for the Russian Peasant didn't it?
