It’s always dangerous for the Trumpers to learn a new word when Rep. Lauren Boebert tried to compare Marxism to a Ponzi scheme.
Marxism is the greatest Ponzi scheme ever developed.
– Lauren Boebert (@laurenboebert) April 17, 2021
MP Boebert showed in a one-sentence tweet that she doesn’t know the meaning of Marxism or a Ponzi scheme. It is believed that Boebert considers socialism and Marxism to be the same. You are not. Second, Boebert doesn’t know what a Ponzi scheme is. A Ponzi scheme is not a redistribution of wealth, which would be socialism and not Marxism.
Ponzi programs thrive on capitalism and the idea of some kind of market inefficiency that can lead to high returns on capital. A Ponzi scheme is a form of financial fraud.
Boebert’s comparison not only doesn’t work, it’s the equivalent of gibberish.
It’s hard to believe that the person who posted this tweet was actually making politics for the American people.
Boebert also voted against bone marrow in cancer patients because she likely believes the national bone marrow registry is either Marxist or Ponziian. Her tweet would be funny if her ignorance wasn’t so deadly to the American people.
