A good example of why popular doesn't necessarily equate to good or right. Inequality is certainly an issue in the states and higher taxes for the rich sounds right to the masses when it comes to curbing that inequality, therefore it becomes a no brainer for many politicians. There is however a certain curve when it comes to taxes and an increase in revenue and i don't believe for a second that they have looked at that.
Why don't we apply that example here in the good old People's Republic of South Africa.

More taxes on the taxpayer will surely solve the inequality this time..

Carlson the Cuck.
The guy was making unsubstantiated allegations that Tucker was being told what to say by the Koch Brothers. Tucker told him to go fuk himself.
I don't really see how that is doing anything remotely close to being a cuck.

Anyway:
What idiots like that historian don't get is that the very rich are completely in favour of immigration because it lowers the cost of labor.

If you look at the cato institute, they are more libertarian than the position that the historian is saying. You can be against high taxes and for immigration.
https://www.cato.org/research/immigration

This is the messiah of all things good in the world telling everyone this.

What the situation is more like is this:
Democrats support illegal immigration from the southern border because brown people South America are very likely to be Democrat voters(or at least their children are) .
If a caravan of white South Africans were queuing on the southern border, you would see that wall go up quicker than a pedophile at a preschool.

Your mainstream big business Republicans support illegal immigration because it lowers wages.

Trump, and to a lesser extent Carlson, take the position of low taxes and reduced immigration to boost wages.

The historian also doesn't look at the history at the time leading up to the 1950s and 60s. Namely the fact that most of the world's industrialised countries were wrecked by WW2. The US had a complete monopoly on the world's industrial production for the period after WW2.

Our historian also isn't very good at politics. He wanted the US to use its power to get rid of tax havens around the world. What does he mean by this? The US should invade Panama? Put its nuclear aircraft carriers outside the Netherlands? Embargo Ireland?

Probably some forex laws and sanctions on countries that don't tax the rich at least 50% would do the trick.

Sanctions on China then :ROFL:

  1. Special tax incentives for foreign investments in the SEZs.
  2. Greater independence from the central government on international trade activities.
  3. Economic characteristics are represented as "4 principles":
    1. Construction primarily relies on attracting and utilizing foreign capital
    2. Primary economic forms are Sino-foreign joint ventures and partnerships as well as wholly foreign-owned enterprises
    3. Products are primarily export-oriented
    4. Economic activities are primarily driven by market forces

Actually, under this policy, Trump could put sanctions on most countries in the world that are not in Europe.

Read an interesting piece, jest of it:

Bush gave us Barrack, as the people got gatvol of the Bush family. Barrack's administration gave us Republicans as the people were gatvol the way the Barrack administration ran the country. People voted for Trump as they don't even want a Clinton in office again. Given the people running for the Democrat office, Trump is guaranteed a second term.

Get ready for another 4 years of Anti-Trump crying :D

Completely on topic, as usual.

Tell us, NBFTL, how this outburst relates to Donald Trump or US Politics? Aside of course, for you slipping in your second favourite strawman?
You high? Sanders was very close to running against Trump last time around and will be trying again in 2020. His policies and love of socialism are entirely relevant.

AOC currently is whipping deluded lefties into a commie frenzy, her love of socialism is also entirely relevant.

They represent where the left wants to take USA, and Venezuela represents what it will look like. Frankly I'm shocked I even have to spell it out for you, it is that obvious.

I know you aren't much of a believer in polls, but you do realize that the 2018 midterm elections were real votes, right? And that they accurately reflected the mood of the country towards the Trump administration, as of 3 months ago? And that the Republicans got demolished?

I'm not into making predictions and Trump's popularity has been improving a bit, but the Dems have more than a fair chance of winning in 2020.

2020 should be much tighter, all these bold predictions about Trump winning are a bit baseless at the moment. As are claims for a Dem victory as they're somewhat leader less atm. Personally I'm going to wait until closer to the time as there is still much that can change in the political landscape.

Exactly this. Dems aren't going to win just by being against Trump, and Trump is just a big old bag of dicks. It's not possible to predict anything.

We still don’t know who’s running; we don’t have dates for the primary debates, and we’re more than 500 days from the convention.

Also, we live in dog years now, so yeah, I agree, patience is the lane everyone should be in right now.

I mean, I'm not really qualified to judge the accuracy of this clearly unbiased piece of reporting, but don't you think it undermines your point just a little when the president appointed his son-in-law as a senior advisor on foreign relations, despite having failed multiple security clearances? I've heard nary a peep about that from your side but one unsubstantiated report about AOC corruption and you're over it like flies.

The whataboutisim aside, he does not get paid for that work. Did you not know that?

Oh, and unsubstantiated report? Yet, you believe Trump is a Russian agent when there is zero proof?! :rolleyes::ROFL::laugh:

It's like the pot calling the kettle black.
