"soft on communism" What communism? Where in the world do you see an actual system of communism? You don't.


U R kidding, right? The billion people in communist China are
not in an actual system of communism?


No it is not a communist nation at all!

"Communism" was a term used by big dictators as a "cover" name to what they were really doing.. which was mass slaughter and oppression. They are not going to call themselves dictators or a hard-lined oppressive state.. they will use the term communism. They would say "our communist system ensures the welfare of all the people" Yet there was no communist system... people were slaughtered not helped.

After all of the failed experiments in Communism, all of the millions dead under its iron fist; some true believers continue to think that the only reason it hasn't worked is because it hasn't been tried "right" yet.


Sigh.

- If you're referring to China and you really really want call their competitive market economic system 'communist' go ahead.

But it isn't.

It is absurd to claim that merely being run by a single 'party' (whatever 'label' they give themselves) central committe = communist.

China's economy has nothing to do with communism, they moved well away from any attempt at a communist economic system at least 20yrs ago.

What is the claim now? Just simply that 'Communist' = not the current US's administration's approved way?

www.cia.gov...

Since 1978 China has had a more market based economy, however
it still definately falls into the Communist catagory, or at least the
Communist 'wanna' be' catagory - as far as the CIA is concerned.

Back on topic of Cuba - The reason I posted this was because
John Kerry himself said that he enjoys the support of many foreign
leaders. Fidel has openly said that he supports John Kerry.
Thus I posted a link that, for a change, actually supports
something John Kerry said. It just so happens that one of those
foreign leaders who supports him, is from a communist country
(or communist wanna' be country) who's people are desperate
to leave the place, even on leaky boats through shark infested
waters, to get to the country that George Bush is president of.
(They came when Clinton was president, they came when Bush is president, and I'm sure they'll be coming when whoever the next
president is, is in the White House.)

If John Kerry hadn't have made the claim that foreign leaders
support him and want him to win .... then this 'endorsement'
wouldn't have been of interest to anyone. It is John Kerry
himself who brought attention to the 'foreign leaders who
support him'. Castro is one of them.

Castro is obviously very anti-Bush and would have endorsed Bin Laden for president of the US...doesnt matter who was running on the democrat ticket...Castro would back him/her...and having Castro support you isnt something to be proud of...

Communisim is a great basis for a system of government, As is Capitolism, as is Socialism they can all lead to perfect societies. there is only one flaw that each of them share. Human Nature

And due to this single simple flaw a pure form of any of them can never work.

The most startling thing about this announcement is that Kerry has not denounced it.

And yes he needs to refuse the endorsement of a Totalitarian leader.

- So what. Why should that have been such a top priority for JK, exactly?

- Why?

What for?

What serious difference could it possible make (except to those insisting on claiming otherwise).

What scary notions can you conjure up if he doesn't?

(psst.....do you think maybe Kerry's a secret Castro-commie? Oh wow!)

sminkey,

No I think you are.



So far Hezbolla has offered to assist the distribution of "Big fat lies 9/11"
and Michael Moore has not condemed that and not a peep from the press.

Foreign leaders ( ok Castro) has endorsed a Candidate. Kerry should say" I really would like for foreign leaders to not make ANY endorsements for me or Bush" "Our election remember?"

- well is your intention just a charming to and fro with the personal insults or what?

- and still I ask, so what? What difference do their comments, good or ill, make to any of us? Who the hell are they to us?

- Maybe he will but why should his aganda be set by anyone but himself and his own party/people?

I've not the slightest doubt that were he to act like a little dolly being pulled this way and that by such 'events' you and your republican mates would be the first to start howling about how he is just 'blow around by outside forces and influences etc etc'.

You want it all ways around. It's pretty obvious.

Sminkey,

This is simple. An American leader needs to refuse any endorsement by any foreign leader, especially by a nutjob like Castro.

If Putin endorsed Bush I would expect Bush to tell him to mind his own business.

And you have to admit your politics are far to the left.

He also appears to have the support of Kim Il "I Be Illing" Jong of North Korea. Funny they were not asked to make a speech at the DNC

the communists around the world have adopted a 'no son of a bush in the white house' policy.
so it doesn't matter who endorses who...
we just want to keep right-wing megalomaniacs, like bush out where they belong.


and it's quite apparent that over the years many printed/online news agencies have been
infiltrated by nationalists and the extreme right.
...you're never too far away from the nazi press.

CBS... fascist?

Wow.. that is a reach.

- perhaps in an ideal world, yes. I still don't think it adds up to a row of beans.

- only by the sad standards of what (we're continually told) passes for the US 'mainstream'.
