  •  He leaves out important details. (4+ / 0-)

    Like when he described a Ponzi scheme. He said SS takes money from one group of people and gives it to another group of people, so it's a Ponzi scheme. The difference: Ponzi at some point quit giving money to any people, and went back to Italy with whatever money hadn't been given out as proceeds from his non-existent investments. The only way SS could become a Ponzi scheme is if he and his allies kill SS, and don't return it's assets to those who paid in. And he knows that. It's the sleight of hand of a snake oil salesman.

    •  But by his definiton ALL TAXES are a ponzi (0+ / 0-)

      scheme, since they "take[] money from one group of people and give[] it to another group of people", and so all taxes must die (except the ones that "give money" to Cruz and his ilk, of course).

      He doesn't care about winning the merits now.  Its all about putting the meme out, which some T-baggers will lap up and regurgitate and so on even unto the dumbest moron.

      And if the right events heppne and not enough people vote... he's POTUS.

      God help Humanity.
