The immigrants in my area work full time or own businesses while much of the white trash who vote GOP are the ones sucking up resources and whining.
A dear friend of my mothers listens only to Fox Noise and thinks everyone else are the liars and doctors of spin. Her latest oozing of propaganda is about socialism.
“Everyone should be independent” is her call presently. She is a typical right-wing, Christian evangelical, person of above average intelligence I would say.
Like millions of other foggy brained conservatives she doesn’t seem to have a clue as to what our socialism brings to us.
A community supported (socialized) infrastructure. Fire, police, school, local government services like sewer and water, garbage pick up, and of course the roads she likes drive on daily.
These people have no answer when you ask them which privately funded things they are willing to pay for out of pocket. Hiring your own fire dept. and police dept. is very costly, unless you SHARE the costs. Etc., etc., etc.
In reality she couldn’t afford the cost of the piece of roadway (one block) from her home to my mothers.
And I guess our socialized military must be be furnished by a capitalistic elite class that is willing to donate the trillion dollars a year. No my dear, it’s socialized tax dollars.
The U.S. is a socialist country for the rich and powerful. They tell us to fear socialism, obfuscating that fact.
