They would take no-lube and shoot back.

The cartels ARE the real Mexican government. You could debate about weather the cartels own the parties, the parties own the cartels or they are both owned by the same people.

The PRI was the old cartel(s) whatever they are called. The PRD is Sineloa.

All you have to do is look at the statistics of who gets raided based on who is in charge. They don't even bother obfuscating, knowing nobody will report is domestically (they want to live) and nobody will report it in America (political correctness etc).

(1 - CapGains Rate) * (1 - Corporate Rate) is fairly uniform in 1st world nations.

Because they compete for capital. Money crosses borders like the wind and no amount of leftest bitching has been able to change that.

Nations with low corporate rates ether tax capital gains as regular income or have higher rates.

The definition of living wage is much more than 'minimum to survive', it's commonly 'minimum to raise a family'.

There is a huge gap between what you'd pay in self regulation and 'living wage'. In self reg your pay a minimum of a real single person, sharing an apartment, survival wage and people would not spawn until they knew something worth paying for.

Your subsidizing the low skilled people. Not their employers. Does Walmart get the foodstamps?

Walmart workers aren't worth more than Walmart pays them, or they would be working elsewhere.

If retailers didn't have morons to hire, they would not hire more skilled people, they would automate more jobs.

Besides which 'starter jobs' need to exist.

The real question is: 'Why are there so many adults incapable of learning useful skills?'

The key flaw of socialism remains excessive concentration of power. It cannot be fixed. The philosophy is broken.

Note: That's the means of production out of private hands version of socialism. Not the capitalist welfare states you list.

The plan backfires when Sanders loses the General and the Rs go an a spending binge.

Our only hope is deadlock. This year that means we hold our noses and let Clinton win.

Having DC do nothing is much closer to the libertarian ideal then letting a socialist fuck up our deadlock.

The Ds do need to be smacked across the nose for nominating two such dweebs. But I'm unwilling to let the Rs run things to do it.

We just have to accept Hillary will escape justice. But it's better than letting ether party actually do what they want.
