A favorite conservative fantasy these days though. But that's so they can conflate liberal pet policy with actual socialism.
And no, I'm not a liberal. I'm just an equal opportunity caller of B.S.
I don't think of myself as a conservative these days.....
Did the government take over a large portion of the auto industry for a period of time?
Is a lot of the transportation system run by state or federal government? (trains/buses)
Are there politicians who have called for rolling private retirement accounts into social security?
And has the government seized private property for reasons not directly mentioned in the charter?
With the above said, was seizing private property part of my comment? Or was is a comment on the general state of affairs in Venezuela?
No mention of seizing private property?
and perhaps didn't realize that the commentary was largely in jest?
So did you add a context to my comments that wasn't there, and then "call bullshit"based on something you added to my comments that wasn't said?
