We hear a lot of propaganda these days with the class warfare politics. I challenge anyone to prove a society that becomes socialistic doesn't in fact lower the standard of living for everyone in that economy. I think it is one of the primary reasons there is a growing gap in equality in the US. The growing gap is because manufacturing jobs are now priced out of the country. Free trade made millions useless in the US. Yet the country had no policy to reduce the population accordingly.

We also hear a lot of propaganda about miracle drugs and everything else under the sun. Class warfare has become necessary. Your challenge is simple. Once a country becomes "Socialistic" those who were at the bottom would inevitably have a higher standard of living than they had before becoming "Socialistic". Jobs are being sent out of the country because of Capitalism and those Free Trade Agreements you spoke of, not Socialism. There is a very scary FTA trying to be pushed through right now. I want you to clarify your idea on why there is a growing inequality gap in America.

There is an income inequality gap because that is life. Some people spend years studying while others party every day. Why don't the Democrats or Communists want to promote real social justice?

Pro

Yes, there is always going to be an income inequality gap. People spending years studying while others party has very little to do with that gap. The equality gap shouldn't be growing, it should be shrinking. That means something is wrong. You sound like a McCarthy era politician with your Democrats or Communists comment. What is real social justice?

The equality gap should be growing at a rapid pace in the USA. It sold out the manufacturing base that held jobs that paid good wages for little skill. As millions of immigrants are added every year with millions still unemployed, we see a flooded labor market. That means people that have to work will have to work for less. Keep this in mind when voting for a democrat that is pro immigration, that is if you work. If your rich keep voting for the party that leaves you with options on your illegal employees, while stabbing the majority of us citizens in the back.
