I think monty, like any ideologue socialist, fails to understand how Stalin an Mao have great parallels to the ideology being espoused.
Irony: all the material tariffs and attempts to forcefully push though infrastructure upgrades are to MAGA and compete with the human grinder that is modern China. It's been said very openly, and any economist worth their salt points out why it's needed. Everything monty says is going to be a downfall is a step to prevent exactly that. Suppose ignorance like that is to be expected though; opinion-editorial as info, and mindsets that take that as fact, is not a recipe for understanding things more complex than cafeteria politics.
I'm o.k. with the term socialist but: You still don't understand me even though I have repeatedly told you that I, and we Canadians aren't socialists. We're capitalists who promote social responsibility in government. Please!
If Trump wasn't resorting to foul play to MAGA then I would call him a socially responsible capitalist too. But unfortunately, and obviously Trump is trying to save the US's sorry a-s with foul play and dirty tricks that are going to bring his country down instead of hold the US's position of power in the world.
And now, after having said that, you can go back to some of the details I provided on how Trump is alienating his allies as well as those who are considered the US's enemies.
Do you have any understanding of world politics at all? Do you understand how Russia is playing Trump? Likely because Russia/Putin has some goods on Trump that Trump doesn't want revealed. The Steele documents are a great example.
The irony of it all is Gahd, both of us want to see Trump continue now. He's making it easier for both China and Russia to increase their power as the US power diminishes.
Ask me about the details some time. I have a lot more than I gave you a few posts back.
