it worked in theory, but not in practice, pick up the pieces and try again. I'm pro-communist and i think people (in general) need to open there eyes and quit being blinded by 'stars and stripes'. check out www.cpusa.org... and tell me if you can at least see my point of view.

capitolism----POVERTY IS PRICELESS

LOL!
*Wipes away tears of laughter*
Yeah, communism has been so good to the world! HAHAHAH!
*Picks self back up from floor to chair*
The first bunch to the New Continent almost starved because their first idea was communism, too!
HARDEEHARHAR!

If you don't have the testicles to be all you can be in this world, smoke a revolver; don't try and stick your filthy paws in what my family earns!
Being pro-commy means either
A) I have visions of belonging to the ruling elite
or
B) I am a lazy bum and want to eat from someone else's harvest!

Shut the heck up and go to work.

You mean well man but what is capitolism anyways?

Besides when there was communism were you allowed to have an anti-communism website in your country?

Let me guess? NO!

oh what was that?

you didn't even have the internet...

i do work , full time. and i still rarely make it through the month and paying the bills. and in the instance of not having the internet or be able to have anti anything pages, you are reffering to stalin-russia. thats like saying you can't be a jew and live in germany. they were evil dictators , yet you think thats what everyone there is like. if this capitolism is so great how come i work full time and barely have enough to afford a one bedroom apartment in a so-so town? while others are basking in there wealth that was passed down to them , and then there are people that live better and never work a day of there life do to the fact they mooch off the goverment (ala food stamps etc.)

and you say if you want more money go to college. this poses another problem, what does it take to get to college? MONEY! unless you are get schlorships for which i was unable (not because of my neglect or anything before you start finding reasons to bash me). i can't live at home, i don't have that option. so where is one suppose to go?

You heard TC,
"be all you can be"
If you want to be big, go big,
If you want to be big, but are too lazy, you won't..

Go big, or go home...
I'm going to be straight out with everyone and sound like a supremacist for it, but this is the mud pit, I'm mad, and it doesn't matter anymore.

In my opinion, welfare should be cancelled

If you need money because you had too many kids, your fault...
If you need money because you won't work, your fault...
If you need money becuase you can't afford the way your living, move!!! (still your fault...)

If you can name one acceptable reason as to why welfare should even exist, I'll back off.

You get what you put in. Simple as that. If you are unhappy with what you earn you need to work to better yourself. You complain that college takes money...ever heard of a student loan? Yes it costs money but you have the option. Once you are in a more marketable position you will get a higher paying job. The payments on that loan will be a bit of a hardship for a few years but that's life. After it is payed you are free and clear.
Communism=Cop out
Take some responsibility for your life. I have no intention of supporting you because you think it's "too hard".

Yeah, Soviet Communism was ruled by dictators, unlike North Korean Communism, Chinese Communism, Cuban Communism...wait...they're all the same!

No that you have cried about your woes, on your computer that is hooked to the www, get over it. Or, as Dennis Leary would say, "Shut the fark up, next!"
Put a little more time into figuring out a way to succeed instead of whining about your struggles and failures. Your job ain't cuttin' it? Get a different one. Stop by the state employment agency, look at AIDT programs or JTPA. If you are in such a bind as you say, you are either irresponsible with your money or you are in a low-paying job. If your job is low paying, you probably qualify for JTPA assistance to a 2 year training program.

I've gone through some rough times and have the scars to show for it, I've been to the bottom of the economical trash heap, and am trying to get ahead. I'll never be "wealthy" or anything like it, but I work hard, work as smart as a mediocre-minded person can, and have no desire to divide my money and assets with people who'd rather eat off my plate than fix a plate for themselves.

Are you just wanting to eat off my plate, or do you fancy yourself a potential member of the ruling party?

I say throw out capitalism and turn away from communism, too. We need something different. Something better. America is the most overconsuming and wasteful nation in the world. The sad part is, most people are completely blind to this fact because our tvs, radios, billboards, and magazines only tell us to buy more. Wear Calvin Klien, Eat McDonalds, Drink Pepsi, Smoke Marlboro. We need to wake up and start living more efficient lives. Our SUVs and Central Air conditioning are killing this planet. Capitolism must end.

Any proof of that assertion, there, Bucko?

Personally, I prefer Lee's jeans, but whatever the case, I don't see my jeans being the cause of ruination.
Ever tried to shove 4 kids and their sports gear into a fuel efficient, 2-door, three and one half mini-human seater?
Personally, I hate SUV's, and I hate these stupid pick-ups that are used for anything but actually picking things up, but that's only because I can't see around the darned rolling hills-on-wheels while I'm trying to do 105 mph in a 55 mph zone!

You may be weak enough to spend-spend-spend just because the radio man tells you to do so, but I buy what I need or want and the ads merely give me choices while financially supporting my favorite right-wing radio talk shows.

You want to lead an efficient life, go right ahead! Doing away with capitalism will not prevent you from meeting your goal. Capitialism will merely allow you to earn the most money you are willing to work for and then efficiently control your stash.
I highly doubt you are looking for efficiency, though, elsewise you wouldn't be wasting time, power and money buying computers and internet access and be posting here. Or anywhere else, for that matter!

By the way, what is your alternative form of economic system? Let me guess, you'd selflessly volunteer to be the ruling party, telling us inefficient little ants what to do and how to do it, right?

Thats great, at least someone willing to stand up and say lets change the whole system instead of advocating socialist protocols on a capitalist economy and wondering why the hell it doesn't work or refusing to acknowledge it doesn't work and blaming it's results on something else.


Let me guess, you're under the impression it has never work because the right people haven't tried it and let me further guess the right person is you. You are all knowing and can make all decisions that are best for the population and while they may enjoy the lavish lifestyle of community housing in facilities likened to today's storage units and belly up to their local community pot for their serving of gruel each night after a 12 hour day devoted to toil for thier emperor, I think I'll pass on it okay? Hope I didn't hurt your feelings or squash your thurst for power and control over every little friggin thing. I take it that you envision yourself in that .05% of the people who benefit from communism and not the 99.05% that are enslaved to pay for it. Let me just ask you...what do you think the chances are that you make it into that demograph? If your rich and powerful already, I can see where you would have a good chance and already be holier than though but if you're an avergae shmuck like most of us, I'm afraid you're a bit disalusioned. Yeah, i know you're gonna come bak with all this "No one has ever really tried true communism" crap and sp has every other oppresive ruler who has ever ushered it in. You're no different than they and your lust for power and control is extinquished by the liberty of capitalism. Thats your true problem with it isn't it. The fact is, a simple post on a message board changes nothing and does nothing to further your goals. Reality still awaits you every morning.

i didn't expect to over throw the whole goverment with a post. thats why it's the 'political mudpit' . i'll admit i have complained about my personal situation some, but others are much worse off than me. i intended to eat off no ones plate. however i'm not so stuck up i will not share my plate. in fact instead of sponsoring some joke war my tax dollars could be going to people that really need it, no i'm not talking about the man in perfect health standing on the corner with a homeless sign. i'm talking about that those people that don't have a place in life, all those people that kill themselves daily because there are stuck in this capitolist joke. i say throw it out the window also, i would be glad to see anything different, commy is just my pick.

Comunisim, are you joking? IF you have any sense of history you would not say that. Communism only works on paper, it is a perfect society for a perfect people. And we are not by any means perfect.
I dont hate a lot of things, but I do hate communism. Go back to your motherland Strigoi.

Strigoi, you don't have to defend yourself for starting this thread. As you said, this is the mudpit, just remember that the mud sometimes gets thrown at high speeds and volumes, you gotta be tough down here!

Communism looks good on paper because on paper you can figure out the one thing that in reality insures it will not work - the human effect.As long as we are humans, communism will never work.

The people who smoke their revolvers, massage their arms with razors or chase pidgeons out highrise windows don't do it because of capitalism, they do it because they have deep seated psychological problems. People who "don't have a place in life" probably have problems, too. What, do you think its that easy? Just have the government drive up, pick up the mumbler, make him go to school to be a computer geek or an accountant and then put him to work? Seriously.

Lookit, I know it takes money to go to college. That's why I tok student loans and worked full time. I don't need anyone telling me it can't be done, and I am a bit harsh with people who lay out weak excuses for their weak drive. MAybe that seems cold-hearted, but I think the true sin is allowing people to wallow in such weakness and become useless. Strength and drive is what drives someone to success.
I work for a company that was started by a guy from the Soviet Union. He came to a country that had a system that rewarded talent and ingenuity and people who were willing to create reality from their dream. The company is Sikorsky Aircraft, and the guy's name was Igor. I'm sure glad he didn't buy into the communist line!

oh my, this thread is funny, all the people who think communism can't work, lol and they compare it to lenninism or stalinism, why does everyone assume when someone says communism that we would run the communism the same as russia did lmao, i'd run myself a democracy, which means communism basically, u can't have a true democracy unless the people are in control of everything equally.... sharing oh my thats propesterous! we should all hog all the # we can get our hands on, sharing is just stupid eh?? gotta have them poor ppl, goo capitolism
you seem quite misinformed about government systems if u think capitolism is good for people because it's against people, look around, the rollback is going strong, all in the name of profit, well u can have fun with your money and stuff, i want life

Oh my, your post is funny, although there has been no successful form of communism, you merely refer to "Stalinism" or Leninism", as if they are subsets or something. Go ahead and list every other form. ever tried, going back to when the first Europeans on the North American continent almost starved the first winter because the morons tried to go against human nature and use that pipe dream.

Oh, but you have the answer to making it work, I'm sure.

You, my friend, seem to be misinformed, as you refer to economic systems as systems of government. Democracy doesn't mean everyone has equal control of everything. If your teacher is telling you that, drop out and go to work. They are obviously not preparing you for anything, anyway.

By the way, dumbell, nobody said anything about hogging and not sharing. Most of us don't need a "Party Chairman" to tell us to share. What you advocate is a Party Chairman to steal from me and give to someone who didn't earn it, and as far as I know, aren't deserving of it. I give plenty, and that isn't only confined to what the liberals take and reallocate to others.
Funny, people are more than happy to talk about sharing when the sharing is being done with other peoples' money.

But hey, prove me wrong, go start your own country somewhere and show us how its done. But forget your economics project in this country. Those who want to work and get ahead can do so and it seems to work just fine. I'm sure you can get several people who don't want to participate in our "Be All You Can Be" system that will be more than happy to go with you.

i'm not talking about a democratic election lmao, if u ahve a real true democracy it's a form of communism, but u have to use democracy as a form of government not as a means of electing representitives. When has there been a communism that isn't hindered by capitolism?? u can't have capitolism if your to have a workign communism type ecomony, it's sad to hear that u think sharing can never work

also read Adam smith work and see what capitolism is gonna do haha

also no teachers taught me this # teachers are #ed they dunno #, my teacher tried to tell me u couldn't have a democratic communism so i learned fer myself, and this is what i learned from myself and from reading real sources, not from being told by the governmetn curriculum

I have already stated my opinion on this thread.
Your butchering of the language, however, makes the rest of the topic rather painful to read.

And please stop puncuating with "lol" and "lmao". You make yourself look more foolish with every post.
