68. Your own words justify my claim of hyperbole

 


Under communism, WE ALL would lose our private property and would be forced into labor.

WE however, have NOT lost our houses and savings, SOME have. NONE of us are FORCED into labor for meager wages. Do some lose their homes? YES. Do we need to raise our wages? YES. Is our health care to expensive? YES. But we CAN fix those things with our votes, something you CAN NOT do under communism.
Our lives are NOTHING like those who live under communism.

Taking the negative experiences of some to suggest they are the experiences of the whole is an exaggeration. It is hyperbole. It's also the same kind of logic the nuts on the right use to claim we are now a socialist country every time a new government program is enacted.
