30. Nope, we live in the same America

 

I just don't exaggerate things for personal and political gain.

Prisoners forfeit many of their rights when they knowingly break the law and, to be quite honest, using them to say we Americans are now forced to labor for meager wages, is pretty weak.

I haven't blamed anybody for anything. In fact, I have acknowledge that it is more difficult for some than others. None of that has anything to do with the fact that the OP is exaggerating certain things to make a political point.
We Americans have NOT lost the houses we own or the savings we have accumulated. We have NOT been forced into labor or that we have NOT lost our right to vote.

Look, our capitalist society has not failed, we are not becoming "socialist" and we are not worse off than the "evil communist." We are not becoming a third world nation, sheesh. Our system is just being abused and we will fix it.
