TEHRAN -- Stating that "their continuing hostilities are a threat to world peace," Iran has offered to mediate talks between congressional Republicans and President Obama.

Iran's Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, made the offer one day after Iran received what he called a "worrisome letter" from Republican leaders, which suggested to him that "the relationship between Republicans and Obama has deteriorated dangerously." read more



None of those are shiny objects. Thats just socialism. which works for a lot of countries.

Also, I have no problems with free colleges,

Earlier this year, President Obama called for free community college to make education more accessible to lower income individuals. Sanders said we need to take the proposal further and offer two tuition-free years of college to prospective students. "We need a revolution in the way higher education is funded," Sanders said in a speech at Johnson State College. "In the United States, all people who have the desire and the ability should be able, in this changing economy, to receive all the education they need regardless of their income."

Sanders said it's "absurd" that some are discouraged from pursuing higher education because of costs.

"This is absolutely counter-productive to our efforts to create a strong economy," he continued.

And he's right.

Follow with his stated desire for redistribution.

I'm not sure exactly what this refers to, are you talking about taxes?

"Ninety-nine percent of all new income generated today goes to the top 1 percent. Top one-tenth of 1 percent owns as much as wealth as the bottom 90 percent. Does anybody think that that is the kind of economy this country should have? Do we think it's moral? So to my mind, if you have seen a massive transfer of wealth from the middle class to the top one-tenth of 1 percent, you know what, we've got to transfer that back if we're going to have a vibrant middle class. And you do that in a lot of ways. Certainly one way is tax policy."

And again, he's right.

Then single payer.

Good, that would be better than Obamacare.

We can just start there.

Continue if you like.

Go vote for your corporate cronies Sal. I'm sure you're delighted with the current state of America and can't wait to see what four more years of the same exact thing will do for our country.
