But what does Russia turning into a mafia state has to do with anything you claim??? It's not communists in charge in Russia, far from it in fact, it's the greedy mafia! If you believe communism still governs Russia, you are delusional...


If you had payed the slightest attention to what I have been saying, instead of making asinnine comments:

You would realise that 'Communism' has never been thie aim - it is a Global Serf State - ruled by the Bloodline Elites.

Communism, Socialism - Progessivism, and now Eco-ism, PC Multicultralism,Warmism are all just contrived agendas to enlist legions of idiots to do their bidding.

And it is the FSB who are very much in charge of the Russian Mafia - who in fact control most of the worlds drug trade.

Wait...so now looking after the environment is bad too? And what the hell is warmism?? As for multiculturalism...like it or not, if you truly believe you can stop globalization and multiculturalism, then you're delusional.

You know why so many wanna-be patriots in the US have issues and are looking for faults in everyone but themselves? Because the world is changing, and they don't like it. You can't stop the movement, the world is moving from being unilateral (US lead) to multilateral, and there's NOTHING you can do about it


And first you say communism wasn't the goal and isn't causing issues...and one sentence later, you claim communism/socialism are in fact doing bad stuff. Flip flopping much?

I'm saying that all the 'isms' are agendas created for dumbed down idiots to follow - much like religions were designed/co-opted to do - you have obviously swallowed several hook line and sinker, as well as having reading comprehension issues.

Totally agree...add "conservatISM" to the list


Politics are like gladiator games to entertain the dumb masses, ALL politics! Money rules the world, not politics...which explains why you blaming everything on communism/socialism/lol-warmism is beyond silly

Oh - well at least we can agree on something!

Though I would maintain that conservatism (small c) is just the natural commonsense approach, that the general 'tardness' of the human condition requires to govern itself - it is not an ism - so much as pragmatism!

It is not really about money either - the elites allready have all the money they can ever use - but it is certainly of of the prime tools they use to control the world.

Of cooooourse, lol...how often do you hear anyone say "I got enough money now"?


And if you're seriously claiming that the right ideologies are somehow better than the left and/or that politicians on the right are any better...you are officially part of the dumb majority that's cheering on the gladiators that distract you from the real issues

There are quotes directly from the Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Taft Benson stating Kruschev made the statement to him in a conversation.


urbanlegends.about.com...

In 1961 senator J. Strom Thurmond cited the quote in congress, without atributing it to Ezra Taft Benson.

In his 1962 book 'The Red Carpet: Socialism -- The Royal Road to Communism', Ezra Taft Benson wrote, 'A few months before coming to the United States Khrushchev is reported to have said', making clear that he heard the quote from someone else.

In 1962 the quote was debunked in an article in 'The New Republic'. Noone could tell the paper where the quote came from, and when it was uttered'.

It is only in his 1966 speech that you quoted, Ezra Taft Benson suddenly remembers that he was there and Khruschev told him this to his face.

When the only known 'source' first atributes it to others and only afterwards to himself, and then it turns out that someone else cited the quote before he did, and that it was debunked before he changed his mind, It just isn't credible. He probably believed that Khrushchev had said this and when he couldn't find the source, took it upon himself to 'be' the source to lend credibility to the quote. This is similar to how most urban legends are spread.



Ronald Reagan who many consider to be one of the greatest Presidents in the modern era also confirmed this.


He didn't confirm the quote, he merely used the quote in a speech.



I think direct quotes from both of these individuals is enough for me. I am not going to question the integrity of two of the greatest Americans to live in the modern era.


I will list just 2 instances where Ronald Reagan knowingly lied

In 1966 on a Security Questionnaire
www.sfgate.com.../chronicle/archive/2002/06/09/MNCF3.DTL

In 1983 to Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir
www.salon.com...

If you consider a congressman who lied and a president who lied to be examples of integrity, then I wonder how far you too will bend the truth to serve your own purposes.

How true that liberals would openly admit they are for communism and socialism. What has happened is a slow process as to not tip the cards of just what is going on. The gov, now run by a mad man has its own agenda of domination of the people. wake up people we need America back!!!

Truthfully there is nothing wrong with communism, it's a great idea. To bad it will never work in the real world, as we've all seen, people as a whole are too greedy always want want want. Be it more money, more possessions, and so on.

I know some of you are going to blink about my comment but look at it this way, everyone owns everything, no poor, no hungry, no rich. Everything would be equal and even, you want this? well you have to do this. Hence a good idea, but sadly it will never get beyond that.


You are sadly misinformed.In actual practice the party owns everything. those at the top treat themselves like royalty those others "comrades" are put to work in slave fashion to provide for the "people"(party aparatchiks);

dissenters are put to death building roads across siberia until they die from exposure; hunger and exhaustion......Like Stalins "road of bones" from Yakutsk to Magadan.


The road runs for over two thousand kilometres through the wildest terrain of the Asian continent, connecting Magadan and Yakutsk, and making an enormous loop through the Siberian mountains in order to reach the hundreds of gold mines that once operated there.

Forced labour was used to construct every inch of this incredible project – at first by inmates of labour camps, but later by the unfortunate denizens of the gulags that began springing up all over these near-uninhabitable provinces of Stalin’s Soviet empire. Many were Russian POW’s, banished to the region after being labeled German ‘collaborators’. Many were Russian Christians who refused to renounce their faith under the Communist regime. Prisoners were chained except when they were working their twelve-hour shifts. Many died during transport alone, and thousands were shot by the officers for not working hard enough. And any worker who died during construction of the road was ‘buried’ where he fell – survivors’ reports indicate that bodies were as common a sight as fallen logs.


Do us all a favor and burn that really cool Che' t-shirt you got from hot topix at the mall...And we won't have to put a bullet through it..

Also, people need to stop repeating the lie that the conservatives want a small government.

Who introduced the patriot act? REPUBLICANS!!
Who killed net neutrality? REPUBLICANS!!
Who now wants ISP to record all usage date like in Orwell's 1984? REPUBLICANS!!
Who started the bailouts? REPUBLICANS!!

Yeah, small government...right


Stop listening to buzzwords, and look at actions!! The same goes for Obama btw, he's definitely not a leftist...even if he claims he is

Don't think of it as a tax.

Think of it as a service fee for the privilege of living in a society where it's illegal to kill and eat you and your entire family and claim your home as my own. A service fee for the ability to travel on maintained roads, rather than spending the greater portion of the year chopping paths through wilderness to get towards the nearest hamlet. A service fee for the promise that if martians attack, the army will be there to fight them off. A service fee for the knowledge that when you're old and decrepit, you're not going to have to gum any peckers to afford cat food. A service fee for the privilege of having your children educated, even if you cannot afford the costs of private tuition. A service fee for all the grants, subsidaries, and bonuses that make it possible for you to eat a strawberry in december and fuel your car for less than ten bucks a gallon. A service fee for the ability to go to court, face witneses, present evidence, and be innocent unless proven guilty.

If you don't wanna pay taxes, well, tough; civilization isn't free.


This is the type of thinking by those that categorize themselves as being "from the left" that makes absolutely no sense.You believe socialism is the grandest idea in the universe and that the capitalist oligarchy you so loudly exclaim exists is taking rights from the citizen and causing you to pay too much for goods AND YET; you are absolutely fine with the "state" taking from its citizens to provide for itself AND those who do not produce. ABSOLUTELY MIND BOGGLING!

Those of you who have been categorizing me as being in the Republican camp need to reset your overloads.My beliefs are for more Libertarian than any other category of politics today.I believe in small government.Just enough military to protect our own borders and world affairs.Personal responsibility.Lower taxes.Traditional America and apple pie morals.
I challenge those of you that agree with socialism or communism to define your core beliefs of humanity with concrete premises and reflect back upon those with me here and let's debate them!

Wait...are you calling the GOP progressive now?? You have to be kidding


And the TP can't really be taken seriously anymore, now that it's been taken over by Palin/Bachmann, both being complete liars abusing religion and fear to control their delusional followers. It might have been a good movement when it started off, but it's been taken over by pathetic liars

While I disagree with practically everything else you have posted in this thread you have a valid point here.
It takes millions of dollars to run for Congress or POTUS.
The financial elite have guided the system towards achieving this goal.
The current two party system of politics in America has assured this financial elite of having the ability to approve of and place the wealthy puppets we call our representatives that do not give a rats lil' pink arse about you or I.Only the will of their controllers.
The Tea Party started off as an honest to goodness grass roots movement amongst citizens that has been hijacked in part by the Repubs.The Democrats and Republicans worked together to squash this movement.
The Democrats (so called progressives) by their control of the media to give the movement a bad rap by using politically correct diversion calling them racist teabaggers, violent right wing extremists etc.The Republicans by convincing the Tea Partiers they were on their side, so some of the candidates the Tea Party backed were actually cuckoo birds placed in the nest!I still have hope for the movement.If the citizens could get average joes' into Congress that really wanted to change the current system, than a movement such as this is the only way to financially back a candidate due to the sheer number of donors to raise funds.

I dunno what or who said socialism is communism but you can not be further from the truth. Socialism is a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole. Do you know what that means? It means we can descide for our selves, make up our own minds and not let our fate be discided by a select few. What are they teaching you in those schools of your in the US. Pic up a dictionary and educate yourself. I for one wouldn't mind living in a world with out government. And no, it won't be chaos. We can govern our selves but there are people who would like you to believe otherwise.

Absolutely right. However, at this point Liberals practically admit that they are communists and see nothing wrong with it. Good post, S&F.


Seems to me it is the extreme right-wing lemmings who are the only ones "admitting" that liberals are communists. That's what the piper pipes to them. Actual liberals hear such asinine accusations and can only laugh, wondering how people living in 2011 can be so -- uninformable -- would be the nice way to put it.

there is no doubt that "liberals" and "progressives" are, if not communists, actual statists. This is fact.

The actual problem is that most of these people are so misinformed and driven by their knee-jerk emotional reactions that they are unable to understand that they are actually verging into the realm of fascism and stalinism.

I really feel sorry for the rank-and-file "progressive". These people have been truly duped and don't have the intellectual assets to recognize it.

After 'religion' began to lose its holding power for the masses, with the avent of the printing press, the 'enlightenment, the reformation etc - they simply came up with another catch all control mechanism/ mind trap to manipulate the masses, egalitarianism, communism, socialism, progressivism, liberalism.

These 'progressives etc are trapped into a ridiculous belief system just as much as the conservative religionists they profess to despise (except if they are ultra-conservative Islamicists).

And it is just as useless to point this out to them!
