WNE has first hand experience of the joy's of communism. From what I have observed in my 38 years on this planet is that socialism/communism always, without fail, ends in this way. It is like Margaret Thatcher said, 'The trouble with socialism is you end up running out of other peoples money'.

I couldn't have put this any better. As the editor once said, he has no interest in buying or wearing that t-shirt ever again to roughly paraphrase him. Having seen it's end results second hand numerous times I have no interest in ever trying on that t-shirt much less buying it.

Unfortunately America seems far to keen to try and experiment with this. After all had the Democrats not conspired to give the nomination to HRC we might very well have ended up with President Bernie Sanders and Vice President Elizabeth Warren. Either of them likely would have had had much better chance of beating DJT than the team of Clinton/Kaine.
