IN A NUTSHELL

Ben Shapiro defines socialism in two minutes flat. Hence the captions.

Margaret Thatcher has an even more succinct  statement  …….”The problem with socialism is that eventually, you run out of other people’s money.”

In a meeting of the tweets, Ben Shapiro addresses the recent vote on supporting Ocasio Cortezs’  “Green New Deal”  that resulted in exactly zero votes from fellow Democrats. Of course the Republicans knew it would not pass. They just wanted the Democrats, who had pushed for recognition of the GND, to go on record as supporting the “pie in the sky” built upon outlawing bovine flatulence, a refitting of every building in the U.S. with solar panels, ditching air travel, as well as internal combustion vehicles of any pedigree.

The vote was a brilliant bit of politicking in that it eliminated the GND as a campaign promise. No one wants to be associated, on record, with this progressive daydream.
