    We can't afford guillotines. The province is broke and there's barely enough to pay for raises and pensions for all the unionized public sector workers.

    If it moves, tax it. If it continues to move, regulate it. When it stops moving, subsidise it. Ronald Reagan

    Is that your prediction for Scandinavia

    They have been socialist since 1930, so they are coming up on 100 years without running out of other peoples money

    They're not socialist. Their economies are free market capitalism. That's what is feeding the taxes that allow them to achieve their particular form of social contract.

    You need to go back to school...preferably a private school, with non-unionized teachers, and get a real education by qualified instructors and not some entitled union hacks.

    Oh, I get it. When it suits you, free access to education and universal healthcare is not socialism.

    So AOC and Bernie Sanders are not socialists.

    Just saw the latest cable ratings in the USA. Its pretty clear that Americans are on board for a right wing agenda. Mean its not even close. Left wing prime time viewership is flat at best and when it comes to CNN quite sad.

    Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson get 4 million viewers per night. Wow.

    Sure, like the way Alberta is flush after decades of conservative rule, flush with cash from oil and their low taxes.
    Not like Norway, not at all, they're not running out of money, are they?

    Socialism is an economic definition, above all. Also explains why the socialists are inept when it comes to the economic and social issues. There's no such thing as free education or free healthcare because, in the end, someone needs to pay for it. The reason the advanced countries have a highly developed social systems, some better than others, is because of the successful free market economies that allow for a creation and prosperity of the middle class, thus creating a nation wide tax base capable of supporting all them "free" services. AOC is an economic ignoramus that like Warren or Sanders, thinks that real wealth is an inexhaustible resources that can just be willed into existence by the government actions like printing money and confiscatory taxation, without realizing that her dreams of "free" shit are completely dependent on the everyone agreeing to donate part of their wealth to the common cause. It's not one or the other. It's a balance decided by the consensus of all the voters. Socialists are just too fucking dumb to understand it.

    You are showing a complete ignorance about economic matters. Education, health care and welfare in the form of unemployment benefits are not somebody else's wealth being transferred. It is instead investments that society makes in order to improve society. It is clearly shown as results in the table referenced above https://www.prosperity.com/rankings

    But it requires an understanding of the fundamental concept of "delayed Gratification", which has been proven to be the best if not the only predictor of future success in Children. You obviously failed the test. People like you would run any business into the ground by neglecting investments in the future.
