Re: understanding socialism/communism
Today's "Conservatives" don't have much to say about

the dangers of Socialism/Communism because it is not

Politically Correct to do so.

They have been hypnotized like nearly everyone else to

accept the Status Quo - except to bitch a little bit about

Obummer.

When potential True Conservatives peek from underneath the

hoodwink to see what has become of the once-Conservative

Republican Party, they might begin to speak up about

Ulta Liberalism, Socialism and the looming threat of

outright Communist takeover.

Until then...

Recount the Romney votes!

Obammy cheated!

Wait 'til next year!

Re: understanding socialism/communism
My main bitch about communism is that it has always led to totalitarianism in short order. I dont really understand how US people feel about socialism because I have lived under small s socialism all my life. Our medicare system was great, but now there are long waiting lists because many of the doctors Canada produces move south because they earn 4x the money they would here, after paying much less (1/3) for their education. Cant blame them or the US for that it's supply and demand. My Employment insurance is 55% of my wages, for as long as I've been working, up to 52 weeks. If I get part time work I can earn up to half my claim before any money is deducted, and If I work steady that week I still will get the other half of my claim ( eg 400 a week ei, can earn 200 before loosing any of the 400, and can earn up to 800 and still get 200 in benefits.) It is certainly not perfect up here but I feel lucky with what I have, and you can certainly get ahead here if you work hard and make the right moves. The reason that we had less financial chaos than you people down there is that our Liberal, and that's the party name not a definition, government kept a tight rein on the banks. Now we have had 10 years of Conservative, again party name(I guess we keep labeling simple around here), and the moves are getting pretty fascistic. Proroughing parliament and internet spy bills, our PM (basically your Pres.)is a creationist rapture believer. I work hard , I survive, and I dont mind giving up some of what I earn so everyone gets a semi fair deal. I guess you conservitive haters are going to tear me apart now.

Well....

I've put a lot of thought into this..

And the way I see it is we need to allow all view points to get a clear understanding of the truth...

So while I will ban excessive shills for the most part our policy is to allow people to say what they want...

If we only allowed people on our staff who saw things 100% our way this site would end up a giant circle jerk of the same viewpoints never being challenged..

Because of Wonkish right wing shills also get banned here and opposing view points are expressed by the administration thereby demonstrating to users & members "it is allowed" .. :)

So at the end of the day I think it's a good thing, even though I clearly don't agree with all of his personal viewpoints I respect them just the same and like him as a person..

I'm sure the real truth is somewhere in the middle...

maybe the libs could understand it this way??

Maybe with a little puppet show, they could get it. I tried to dumb it down to something they'd understand, like, a 10 year old... That SHOULD work but, never know.

I am so sick of smug self satisfied bigoted people. You think that everyone with a different viewpoint is stupid. I understand everything that you are talking about I'm not thick headed, but you make out like every liberal type stopped thinking when they were six.
We should reward people that try hard and work to achieve things, they should get opportunities and paid well for excelling, but we have to take a broader scope on success. The reason that "everyone gets a ribbon" is because everyone is doing the best for them. If people want to succeed they have to do the work and create their own results if they want to be rewarded, but we have to realize that not everyone is the "best" or given the circumstances to be the best. This worship of competition and oneupmanship is getting crazy. Who do you want on your team the best or the best team player.
Really?really?

Good boy! I expect you'll be setting the "Republicans"

straight about their NeoCon Liberalism?

Tea Party ruined that party. Its sad. Hooked onto Ayn Rand and never looked back. Children.
 Quoting: L | b e R T a R | a N ???

Keep in mind the "Tea Party" originated as a disorganized

group of people that were finally seeing The Light.

What everyone calls the Tea Party was made up of mostly

Conservatives (but some open minded Liberals also) who

realized they were being had.

They Tea Party was targeted immediately by the Liberal

Right wingers who wanted to be anointed "Leader" of the

Tea Party movement... Sarah (Tina Fey) Palin and even

Glenn ("yep, I'm a Neocon") Beck, among others.

We need to ATTRACT True Conservatives (such as yourself)

into an unlabeled "party" - somehow, some way. I see no

other alternative. Call them Republicans, Libertarians,

Paultards or whatever, but if they/we don't come under one

banner, we, the Conservatives are in deep deep doo doo.
 Quoting: I Ban Thee


imo you gotta be REALISTIC when it comes to the tea party.

Palin is/was a certifiable idiot.

MANY on the right supported/endorsed the idiocy.

it made the Tea Party "idiots forever" in the brians of Morans.

simple as that
"If one understands that socialism is not a share-the-wealth programme, but is in reality a method to consolidate and control the wealth, then the seeming paradox of super-rich men promoting socialism becomes no paradox at all. Instead, it becomes logical, even the perfect tool of power-seeking megalomaniacs.

Communism or more accurately, socialism, is not a movement of the downtrodden masses, but of the economic elite."

Re: understanding socialism/communism
Why does the world have to be this way...?

It makes me sad to think on how much as we as the human race miss out on. But no one wants to work together. No one can live in harmony with eachother and the world.

No one can put aside their differences and think about the bigger picture and what is at stake.

It is sickening of what we have become and what we are doing to eachother, our planet and the inhabitants of Earth. In which we have no right.

It seems as if no one can see what a beatiful gift we have been given. And the true potential of what is at stake. But we are missing the mark in such a big way.

There is so much hate and so much greed.

I can only imagine what it might be like in a world where everyone did what was right for the common good of humanity and the world we live in. No one had to worry about storing up wealth because there was more than enough for everyone to enjoy. No one needed to worry because there was nothing to fear.

Where is the love and compassion for one another...?

We are only here for but a moment. A fragile life. And everyone is tearing eachother apart at the seems. Why...?

Not one of us can take 1 mosal with us when we depart. So why do we think we are owed anything...?

Why does it have to be this way? It is heartbreaking.
