    Weren't some of these people actually referring to Biden and Harris as Mum and >Dad?

    There may have been. If I thought Biden had a lot of dough and was
    generous with it, I might try calling him Dad several times... I have
    little doubt he'd eventually fall for it.

    The Leftie schools have not taught that socialism has always turned to totaliarianism and always ended badly for the population.

    Yeah, I cannot fathom why people don't try to learn more about what they believe in. On a government level, it has never done anything but turn
    into totalitarianism.

    Some of these people just want to be like the Scandanavian countries, but they ignore the realities of that too. 1: they aren't socialist in wealth creation - they are capitalist. 2: they are socialist only in government programs - and they tax the daylights out of everyone to provide those programs. In some of those countries, they are trying to privatize those programs.

    I read something once where a leader in Denmark was upset because he read
    in the media where Americans were calling his country "socialist." Some countries that people in the US call socialist are actually ranked as being more "free market" than we are. Your two points are spot on.

    It's part of the Leftie training. Ever notice how in the Leftie space there are people who cannot
    be questioned? That we need to just accept everything they say as gospel?

    Part of the indoctrination that kids get in our failed education system is to not question the
    "experts" and just accept what they say because the are "more educated than you."

    So many people today simply have no critical thinking skills and no BS detector.

    The video of that was on YouTube. It was very interesting to watch.
