My answers to your pop quiz.

As many as it takes to do the work Americans are unwilling to do for the wages offered up by capitalists.

Whatever number it takes for the above.

See above.

No. And Texas will be purple by ‘24.

Maintain their culture, flag, and language. Everyone should learn to speak/write English, but that doesn’t need to be codified.

We should tax everyone with income/wealth above the poverty level.

A progressive tax means the more you make, the more you pay. That would depend on how much the ‘high earner’ made.

We taxed the highest earners at 91% under Ike. That sounds about right.

Sure, if someone wants to show off their wealth by living in a mansion, they should be able to. They should also be taxed to the max, income, wealth, and property, for that luxury.

Probably never.

It should be higher.

We need a jobs guarantee, coupled with a universal basic income. Then we don’t need to worry about a minimum wage.

Sure. With a supplemental UBI, you as a business owner wouldn’t be affected by minimum wage. And if the government did universal health care, ditto.

Probably not until it’s too late.

Probably not until it’s too late.

In about 5-10 years, yes.

There is no ‘Solyndra’ model. The government funds all sorts of research and investment. Some pan out, some don’t. But yes, government should continue supplying loans, especially when all the private sector seems willing to do is compensate CEOs and do stock buybacks.

Why stop, indeed.

Who knows?
