Do you agree with republicans, that private property should become federal property in order to combat communism?

Like declaring private property to be federal property along the border when they want to build a border wall, and declaring private property to be federal property when they want to put oil pipelines for Canada through private property? Is that really capitalism?

    Of course it is necessary to secure our nation from invasion. Sometimes that means taking control of land for defensive bases or barriers. If they don't defend the land you own then some else will just take it when our defenses are overwhelmed

    And let's not forget interfering in the agricultural markets to the tune of tens of billions of dollars - depressing farm incomes via tariffs and paying $25 billion in farmer bailouts to agribusinesses.  That seems particularly pro-capitalist, doesn't it?

    I can see the need for some easements. They are not that unusual in a modern society.

    You have it backwards.  Liberal socialists want to confiscate people’s property (and earnings).

    They only take property from people who aren’t rich. That is the essence of capitalism. Notice there are no oil pipelines through Wall Street or Silicon Valley. That’s because taking property from the rich isn’t capitalism. Taking property from the non-rich is.

    The government can condemn property needed for public uses but they have to pay fair market value to do that.

    You been listening to neocons like Ben Shapiro again? He's probably just mad that Trump won't ethnically cleanse Iran for Israel.

    I agree with Nunya and Donald Trump. We should have communism but the government shouldn't take private property out right. They should buy it. The more property they buy the more revenue they will have to give them money to buy more property until we have communism.

    They should buy the land from the people or offer them something big in return. Never just seize it.
