Which opinion am I trying to enforce as fact?

That conservatism is true freedom.

I consider Socialism freedom, but you disagree obviously. Why is that? Because it's opinion, not fact.

“So our Progressives are enlightened Fascists, or are they just mixing progress with Fascism?”

The first step towards recovery is admitting you have a problem….

“… how do you get that the US Constitution is the most enlightened belief? Because you say so? Keep living in your little wonderland full of magical unicorns.”

Wow. I never said “the US Constitution is the most enlightened belief,” I said the US constitution is considered one of the pinnacles of the Englightenment (which is a European philosophical movement, Descarte, Locke, Voltaire, Kant, etc).

“I will live in the real world where opinion is opinion and fact is fact. I don't see how opinion=fact, I am a Socialist but that doesn't mean it's perfect just because I say so.

You people really need to wake up.”

All your base are belong to us.

I agree with you seagull, look around us, the gulf is dying, men are dying in a futile war, our leaders are against us, just for a few,

and we are at each others throats, what will it take to bring us together?

The vast majority of them are religious which already makes them susceptible to completely bull# and fairy tales. So it's not much a stretch for them to buy what the Republicans sell. The useful idiots of America are Republicans.

“…That conservatism is true freedom.”

Again, I never said that. I said a subset of self-identifying conservatives still understand what freedom is (i.e., not the all-encompassing state).

“I consider Socialism freedom, but you disagree obviously. Why is that? Because it's opinion, not fact.”

No, its an empirical observation. The all encompassing state (which is what socialism‘s end point is) crushes the human soul.

I don't see everyone at each other throats, but it is kind of hard to agree with everything, and opinions will always be across the spectrum.

Now, I think we can both agree that each side is at each others throats (and soon, literally they will be). The amount of hate between both parties is unnerving to say the least. It is something you'd expect to see in a pre-civil war era, which is exactly where we're headed.


Perhaps they will destroy each other, and the country will finally be safe from their self-absorbed meddling.

The more immediate question is why is this thread still open when it could be used as the poster thread for political trolling?

Actually NAZI is a german acronym for National Socialist Democratic Party. It is a left-wing philosophy, rooted in class warfare, blaming the jews for the failures of Germany, much as liberals blame anyone with a real job for their lack of success. Liberals often compare conservatives to NAZI's because it's the only thing they can think of other than.....Oh YEA? Hitler regulated industry and employed it in his non-war related causes, even a car company the people's car, you know it as volkswagen. Hitler had a national police force to execute his political will, the SS, as Obama has expresse interest in creating. Just as Obama wishes to control the internet and force liberal talk radio on public airwaves, Hitler too controlled radio. There is an ocean of difference between "mainstream" republicans and true conservatives. Conservatives wish to limit the influence of government over our daily lives, liberal democrats feel government knows best. If Hitler were alive today, he would be a Liberal Democrat. If Kennedy were alive today, he would be a Republican, leaning towards a conservative. Remember, Kennedy cut taxes and pointed out that lowering taxes was good for business. He also launched the Apollo project. Obama basically has cancelled space travel, and we now have built a space station which we have no way of servicing. Obama is no Kennedy. Obama was born in Mombasa , Kenya, and is not eligible for the office of president of the United States. And he throws like a girl. A frilly, prissy girl.

You're now aware there is no difference between Socialism, Fascism and Corporatism.

Much as I am a self described liberal, I wouldn't poke this thread with a ten foot stick. It is pure political trolling and serves no purpose.

Might as well ask, "Do you still cheat on your taxes?"

Sorry...not.

Either way I don't see how that is possible when reading the rest of your post.

And you are clearly 100% absolutely biased, how do you get that the US Constitution is the most enlightened belief? Because you say so? Keep living in your little wonderland full of magical unicorns.

I will live in the real world where opinion is opinion and fact is fact. I don't see how opinion=fact, I am a Socialist but that doesn't mean it's perfect just because I say so.

You people really need to wake up.


misoir you already bisaed though.

Once again you are stating your opinion as if it is fact.

Just because 50-57% are Conservative and that is what they like doesn't make it right and doesn't make it wrong, politics is opinion and when you try and force opinion as fact you make a huge mistake. Which you just did.


Somehow though misoir....i bet if the poll said that those 50-57% were socialists you would use that poll as fact just how he is doing.

The Leftists have all the TYRANTS.

Sorry to break your delusion, but ignorance is just so..............ignorant.

Socialism is the path to tyrannical government. Both the repubs and the dems use it.

Here is a breakdown for even the infantile to understand. When you speak of left/right, are you speaking of what?
