    Joe Walsh: 'I'd rather have a socialist in the White House than a con man'

    How many people here agree with this?

    Former presidential candidate Joe Walsh criticized fellow Republicans who labeled themselves as “never Trump” for considering a vote for President Trump if Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is the Democratic 2020 nominee.

    Walsh, a former Illinois congressman, wrote in a Washington Post op-ed Tuesday that he’d “rather have a socialist in the White House than a con man.”

    He went on to chide his fellow "never Trump" party members for what he sees as their wavering stances.

    "Some of my Republican and ex-Republican brethren have started implying that what never-Trump actually meant was something more like: fingers-crossed-I-really-really-hope-not-Trump-but-I-guess-sometimes-Trump if Democrats wind up nominating a self-described democratic socialist," he wrote. "But that’s not how this works."

    But Walsh, who attempted to take on Trump in the Republican primary, said he sympathizes with those who do not want Sanders to be in the White House, with a personal caveat.

    “If it were up to me, Sanders isn’t the guy I’d put in charge,” he wrote. “But when I finally came around to saying, ‘never Trump,’ I meant it.”

    Walsh, however, said those who designated themselves as “never Trump” should “suck it up and support his Democratic opponent, no matter who that is,” promising to campaign for Sanders if he is the nominee.

    “Lots of politicians stink, and people hold their noses and vote for them, anyway,” he wrote. “But if you’ve already gone on record as a never-Trumper, and now you’re saying that you’ll vote for Trump because you don’t like the alternative, you’re not holding your nose, you’re inhaling deeply.”

    The former congressman dropped out of the presidential race against Trump earlier this month after receiving only 1 percent of the vote in the Iowa caucuses.

    Concerns surrounding Sanders, who is a self-described democratic socialist, have surfaced in recent weeks as the Vermont progressive has become the front-runner in the race to win Democratic presidential nomination. Sanders currently has 45 delegates after winning Nevada and New Hampshire and coming in second in Iowa by an extremely thin margin.

    Lawmakers on both sides took issue with Sanders’s comments regarding the late Cuban leader Fidel Castro when he said on “60 Minutes” that “it’s unfair to simply say everything is bad” about Castro.

    I tend to agree. But Sanders could bring on the collapse sooner rather than later so I can see both sides.

    I think the big screw up that Sanders did to his campaign was about fidel castro. I still dont see a chance that he would win though. I dont think the dems will give him that chance to win with the super delegates the win might to Biden or bloomberg.

    Well, Walsh certainly is doing something about spending.

    He is trying to significantly increase spending by encouraging people to vote for Bernie Sanders over Trump.

    All you hear is the bull$#@! words coming out of his mouth.

    You really don't want the collapse to happen under a socialist totalitarian regime.

    And I will do everything in my power to stop that​ from happening.

    They're all socialist conmen and conwomen. When will people truly wake up and realize that the upper echelon of corporate government is little more than an organized crime racket, where the labor of the average people is pooled together and stolen by that upper echelon?

    I mean come on, coronavirus hits and the first thing out of the upper echelon is WE NEED MORE MONEY! As if the trillions already allocated just aren't quite enough.

    The entire internet is the domain of paid shills and bots. If you don't know this by now....

    Israel, under control of the Crown and, ultimately, the Vatican, own the USA. If you don't know this by now....

    Talk to people about liberty. You won't find it on websites, you won't find it in politicians.

    But now you can't talk to people because of "social distancing"....brought to you by shills and politicians.

    Forget the debt. The debt will never be paid without a Commander-in-Chief willing to issue letters of marque and reprisal for the bankers and financiers of the City of London & a pit bull Attorney General willing to use RICO to seize the assets of the Wall Street Banks.

    Both men would be JFK’d before dinner. Therefore, the debt will be inflated away. Buy gold.

    In the last 30 years, Sanders was a commie masquerading as a socialist.

    In the last 5 years, Sanders was a commie masquerading as a "democratic socialist".

    Trump is no Ron Paul but the old bastard the cut my taxes. Bernie will raise all taxes; personal, payroll, corporate, cap gains, climate change, inheritance, etc...

    All socialists are con men. Socialist leaders always become rich, either with money or power - but usually both.
    No more IRS.

    This +rep

    Comrade Bernie is not a socialist, he is an authoritarian Marxist, a commie from the old school, a pro Soviet Leninist.

    He has stated numerous times that he intends to kill my industry, prosecute me personally as a climate criminal, and sue my industry into nothingness.

    He has legions of Bolshevik/Jacobinite followers that are on record advocating death camps and genocide.

    I, and the remaining productive white class of America, are the targets of that genocide.

    Trump has lowered my taxes, reduced workplace regulations and reduced regulatory fatwas that directly affect me.

    Those are the facts as of February 2020.

    I will be supporting Trump in the fall, barring drastic changes in those facts.

    Any sane person, especially any sane white person, should be doing the same.

    Anything to the contrary is just static, background noise and smoke.

    Disregard it.

    You know, barring the extensive disagreement I have with the premise; even if I accepted Joe Walsh's argument for exactly what it was, he would still be wrong.

    Anyone ever hear of this quote, from C.S. Lewis? Been around a while:
    Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be “cured” against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.
    Yeah. I'd rather take the con man. At least the notion of prosecution exists with that, that you know when he kills you it's out of malice. But somehow, the socialists and communists always get away with it, literal murder, because "they had the best of intentions". All while making themselves rich. And despite their bodycount being 100x higher. No thanks.

    Exactly.

    Collapsatarians know not that which they pursue.
    "May you find that which you seek" is the greatest Chinese curse.
