Sam Donaldson Lauds Socialism, U.S. 'Getting to Be a Better Country'
By Brad Wilmouth | February 7, 2019 9:04 AM EST

Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's CNN Tonight, former ABC News reporter Sam Donaldson cheered for the U.S. to continue marching toward socialism as he predicted there will soon be a single-payer health care system, and declared that the U.S. is "getting to be a better country."

At 10:41 p.m. Eastern, host Don Lemon began the segment by playing a clip of President Donald Trump in his State of the Union speech warning against the U.S. becoming a socialist country. The CNN host then brought aboard Donaldson and asked if the President's attacks on socialism would be a part of his reelection campaign.

If this is his view of getting better, I dread to think what his idea of getting worse is. :scared smiley:

I think they think, what President Trump said it was, is big government telling you how to live, what to do, when to do it. That's not the socialist countries, as I understand it, in Norway, Sweden. Much of the established Western world has socialism to a greater extent than we have, and their people get along.

How's that Socialism working out for the rest of the western world? Oh yeah. It's tanking them. Their people aren't getting along. France s burning to the ground. Italy is about to split in two. Spain is dividing. Norway and Sweden have 12 people living there. The don't count.

 Perhaps someone should show Mr. Donaldson the near $22 trillion in debt, more cities and states finding they’re unable to pay their pension obligations, and the trillions of unfunded liabilities in both Social Security and Medicare that are both already highly unsustainable
I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

Why bother. The only thing this idiot is known for is yelling at Reagan during press conferences. He's a very dim bulb.

Someone put a leash on his piece and take it for a walk.  It has cut off the circulation to his head.

Measure socialism by its authors and adherents;
every last one a disturbed crank and malcontent.
Begin w/French revolutionaries such as Fourier
and Saint-Simon, to Marx and Engels, then Dewey
and Russell, ending w/O-C our Burrito Babe!!!
