#1 "Communism?" The left keeps trying to rebrand it under new and different names. Some keeping getting duped and sucked in despite it never working.

#4 Humans. Are, Not. Ants. Or Termites. Or Honeybees.

We also are not Wolverines, a species so solitary that mating courtship is an act of Rape.

#5 The left went from "question authority" to "obey" so quickly my head is spinning. College kids are not taught to think for themselves and have to learn that stuff at home, or on their own time.

The bonus is that any half-way smart company will check social media before hiring anyone and Socialists and Communists find it impossible to lay low when they have the chance to display their virtue.

#9 Liberalism/progressivism/socialism/communism are all the same thing. The Spartans were the first recorded country to try socialism in 400BC and they went bankrupt just like everybody else who has tried this form of government ever since. It is mathematically impossible to add 2 and 2 and get 5 no matter how many times you try to do it. Likewise when over 45% of the people in a country are supported by rest of the country the system fails because it is impossible for any of the socialistic governments to manage everything with less that 45% drones. The length of time a socialist government can last depends upon the wealth of the country. Once the previous wealth is exhausted the government and the country implode.
