Response to ProfessorGAC (Reply #13)

14. I see a lot of that these days. We must not become that which we hate. I've also

Seen people take some wierd positions either because of what trump said, and sometimes bernie. Reflexively opposing things out of spite where it doesn't make sense.

Apparently trump stole some of bernies populist ideas (although he would just be paying lip service), and said something about the system being rigged towards the wealthy. Which is well known' as leveling that pkaying field; regulating business to play by fair rules and pay their daur share of taxes is a major goal of liberals.

This caused several posters in the thread to suddenly become good little friends of capital scoffing at the notion of a tilted playing field as both false and ridiculous "scam" of the "far left".

And then some folks have resurrected the hippie punching practice of ridiculing the "far left", as if providing health care and higher education for our people are radical ideas that aren't commonplace in every other industrial nation.
