Exactly. They are goods paid for by the collective wealth of the nation.

Socialism...you're welcome.


No, you are deluded. You are mistaken. You are trying to take reality hostage and change the argument.

You are wrong.

I've done nothing of the sort. By definition, those things are socialist in nature. To deny that, according to the definition, is delusional...or biased.

Perhaps you are unprepared to admit that the very things you may love, are socialist.

Boy oh boy.

Look people, I think socialism is bad.

You think socialism is good.

I will even caveat that we'll become full socialist within 3 decades.

Granted, I'll be dead so I don't really give a ####, but my children will suffer as a result.

My favorite color is blue. Your favorite color might be green. Just because your favorite color is green does not ####ing mean that I am going to change MY favorite color to green.

Get over it.

We aren't into a socialist-dictatorship yet so you cannot dictate what I say and what I think.

I plan on tilting at this ####ing windmill until I die.

get over it.

Just accept the fact that some of us won't bend over and take it.

You don't have to. Just keep paying your taxes, I will do the same and that road will get built...that military will save your ass.

Otherwise, do whatever you want and stop being a misinformed drama queen.

Not a drama queen, just a tiny voice growing smaller against the entitled nanny-state weak people who abdicate responsibility and individuality.

Name calling because I don't embrace government rule over me.

I guess this is how it starts.

Social pressures, name calling.

Next you'll threaten my employment if I don't agree with you.

Typical authoritarian tactics.

Try something new. You're boring me.

Quit free-loading off of what I help provide and you will have a valid argument.

Until then, you have no right to bitch and complain when you enjoy the fruits of the socialism at work.

I wish there was an appropriate "laugh" emoticon.

You will, ultimately, lose.

Socialism, dictatorship of any sort, never lasts for long.

Enjoy it while you can, comrade.

The socialism I speak of is granted by the authority of the constitution.


Article I, Section 8, Clause 1: The Congress shall have Power to lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States


Is the constitution a recipe for a socialist dictatorship?

Have you read all of Jill Stein's platform? She is going to cut military by half(Im assuming after whatever current POTUS hasn't cut yet) so don't count on the military saving your derriere.

I don't care about Jill Stein.

What does that have to do with anything I have said?

Look, its a common suggestion that the common welfare means welfare state..... but I assure you the meaning is not the same.
The common defense is the defense of our country. I don't mean to say Im for the military-industrial complex as warned by Eisenhower, that is an abuse by the CFR who runs this country. Every secretary of Defense since Eisenhower has been a member of the CFR. CFR is both Republican and Democrat and whatever else other party. Many CFR members came from the Skull and Bones. In fact Hillary threw Kerry under the bus going on about people from Yale.... I couldn't believe my ears....

double post
and yes the point was you said keep paying our taxes the military will save us.... so I happened to have noticed that it was in Jills mission statement that she intends to cut the military in half.
She will have to cut all the wars too... which is why the elites probably would never help her get elected....because war is part of the deal.... either democrat or republican. You see the last POTUS ran on cutting military too, in fact specifically stated he will not weaponize space....among other things.... but we still saw military action in Libya and Syria, and we also saw more troops in Afghanistan.... the democrats just have a special self righteousness about their war activities....

What do the police have to do with social ownership of the means of production?

You're talking about socialism, right?

What do the police produce?

Or is that particular example you provided not applicable at all?

How about firefighters? How does their job function relate to common ownership of the means of production?

We're talking about socialism, right?

Or are you purposely distorting the concept of socialism to win an argument?
