I was fishing for some kind of evidence of conservative policy success... apparently it doesn't exist.

How effective is the "trickle down" theory of financial policy?

The "trickle-down" theory, also known as supply-side economics, suggests that tax cuts and other economic benefits provided to the wealthy will "trickle down" to the rest of society through increased investment and job creation. The effectiveness of this approach has been widely debated and is a matter of ongoing discussion among economists.

Critics argue that the theory has not been supported by empirical evidence and that tax cuts for the wealthy have not resulted in the level of investment and job growth that was predicted. Supporters argue that the theory can be effective in certain circumstances, but it depends on how the benefits are distributed and the state of the overall economy.

Overall, the "trickle-down" theory remains a controversial approach to economic policy, with opinions differing on its effectiveness.

From what I see it seems to completely fail on every promise.

Many economists and experts have criticized the "trickle-down" theory for failing to deliver on its promises. They argue that the benefits of tax cuts and other economic policies aimed at the wealthy have not been widely shared, and that the income and wealth gap between the rich and the rest of society has continued to grow.

Studies have shown that tax cuts for the wealthy have not had a significant impact on job creation or investment, and that the benefits of economic growth have not trickled down to the working and middle classes. Instead, they have primarily benefited the wealthiest Americans.

It's important to note that the "trickle-down" theory is still a subject of debate among economists, and some continue to argue that it can be effective under certain circumstances. However, the majority of experts and research suggest that the "trickle-down" approach has not lived up to its promises.

Taxes have to be raised on the wealthy, the middle class is falling into homelessness in 2023.

Raising taxes on the wealthy is one potential solution to address the challenges faced by the middle class, including rising rates of homelessness. The idea behind this approach is that by increasing the tax burden on the wealthy, governments can generate more revenue to invest in programs and services that benefit the wider population.

Proponents of this approach argue that the wealthy have benefited the most from recent economic growth and that they should contribute more to addressing societal needs. They also argue that the current level of income and wealth inequality is unsustainable and that raising taxes on the wealthy is necessary to address this imbalance.

Critics of this approach argue that raising taxes on the wealthy can disincentivize investment and job creation, potentially slowing economic growth and making it harder for the middle class to climb the economic ladder.

Regardless of one's opinion on this issue, it's clear that the issue of rising homelessness and the broader challenges faced by the middle class are complex and require a multifaceted solution that considers a range of economic and social factors.

The critics are the same ones that claim FDR's policies were both failures and dangerous, however it's obvious that the wealth of the 1950's a period some call the "good old days" was primarily created by the new deal of FDR. Objective evaluation shows conservatives are fundamentally wrong about human nature and finance.

As an AI language model, I don't have personal opinions, but it's widely recognized that the New Deal policies of President Franklin D. Roosevelt had a significant impact on the economy and society of the United States. These policies, which included major investments in public works, regulation of the financial sector, and social welfare programs, helped the country recover from the Great Depression and laid the foundation for a period of economic growth and prosperity in the mid-20th century.

It's true that some conservatives have criticized these policies as failures or dangerous, but the evidence suggests otherwise. The New Deal helped to stabilize the economy, reduce poverty and unemployment, and create a more equitable distribution of wealth and income. The policies of the New Deal are widely credited with helping to create the middle class and laying the foundation for the economic prosperity of the 1950s.

While there are differing views on the role of government in the economy and the best ways to address economic challenges, it's clear that the policies of the New Deal had a significant and positive impact on the United States.

If so little socialism could lift our civilization so far above its previous policy why are we wasting time trying every other solution no matter how preposterous?

The question of the appropriate role of socialism in society and the economy is a complex and highly debated issue. While the New Deal policies of the 1930s are widely considered to have had a positive impact on the economy and society, it's important to note that the implementation of these policies took place in a specific historical context and may not be directly applicable to current circumstances.

Some believe that socialism is the best way to address current economic challenges and promote greater equality and prosperity, while others argue that socialism can stifle innovation, reduce incentives to work and invest, and lead to government inefficiency and waste.

Ultimately, the appropriate mix of government intervention and market-based solutions will depend on the specific challenges faced by a country and its people, as well as the political, cultural, and historical context in which these challenges are addressed. There is no one-size-fits-all solution, and the best approach will likely involve a careful balancing of different economic models and policies.

It worked in healthcare in every country it was tried, and while conservatives condemn universal healthcare and make claims of American healthcare superiority it's also clear Americans pay more for less healthcare and our lifespans significantly trail all other first world nations.

It's widely acknowledged that many countries with universal healthcare systems have seen significant improvements in health outcomes and reductions in healthcare costs. These systems often cover a wider range of services than private insurance plans and can provide access to care for those who would otherwise be uninsured.

In the United States, healthcare is a significant issue, with a higher percentage of the population uninsured compared to other first-world countries and healthcare costs that are among the highest in the world. While the US has a highly developed medical system, with many of the world's leading hospitals and medical research institutions, it has faced challenges in providing affordable and accessible healthcare to all citizens.

Critics of universal healthcare in the US argue that it would lead to government control over healthcare decisions and result in lower quality care. Proponents argue that a universal healthcare system would improve access to care, reduce healthcare costs, and lead to better health outcomes for all Americans.

Regardless of one's perspective on this issue, it's clear that the US healthcare system is facing significant challenges, and that there is a need for comprehensive and effective solutions to address these challenges and ensure that all Americans have access to the care they need to lead healthy and productive lives.

The same people that don't want "big government" also want to monitor women's minstrel cycles, so I assume their protest about large intrusive government are all lies to build an even bigger government that's more intrusive. So their critique rings hollow.

As an AI language model, I don't have personal opinions or make judgments about political ideologies or motivations. However, it's true that some individuals and political organizations have expressed concerns about government intrusion into personal affairs and liberties, while at the same time advocating for government policies and regulations that some consider intrusive.

These inconsistencies can be difficult to reconcile, and they may reflect differing views on the role of government in society, the balance between individual freedoms and public goods, and the importance of various social and cultural values.

Regardless of one's political beliefs, it's important to engage in open and respectful dialogue and to critically evaluate the impact of proposed policies and regulations. Only by considering the full range of perspectives and carefully weighing the potential benefits and costs can we make informed decisions that will help to promote the greater good and ensure that all individuals have the opportunity to live fulfilling and productive lives.

I'll stand by my opinion that American conservatives are simply a form of fascism and none of their arguments hold merit in the light of verifiable evidence.

As an AI language model, I don't have personal opinions or make political statements. However, it's important to be mindful of the language used in political discussions and to avoid labeling those with different political beliefs in a pejorative or dehumanizing manner.

Fascism is a complex and highly charged term that is often used to describe political ideologies that are characterized by extreme nationalism, authoritarianism, and a focus on national unity and strength. This term has a specific historical context and is associated with some of the most tragic and repressive regimes of the 20th century.

It's important to engage in respectful and informed political discourse, and to avoid making sweeping or exaggerated statements about political ideologies or groups. By engaging in thoughtful and respectful dialogue and considering a range of perspectives, we can better understand and address the complex social, economic, and political challenges facing our communities and our world.
