Communism, IMO, is beyond the left and goes full circle till you get back to the Republicans. Socialist would be a better description of extreme left-wingers. Comrade...!!


Somebody once told me there is no right and left wing, only a horse shoe

The two extreme's (Communism and Facism) are at either end of the horse shoe, they have similar ways, Strong Powerful Government, huge army, no-democracy, single leader who over rides everyone etc (i hope that makes sense)

Well, the Republican Party is awesome. The problem is, is that the GOP is no longer the Republican Party. The GOP is a new breed of crazy.

The libertarians are the new Republican Party, considering they are what the Republicans are "supposed" to be about.

On the other hand, saying the current GOP's followers are ignorant is redundant since more often than not, people in this country are comfortable with a pamphlet to make a choice in the ballot box (if they go at all). So the same can be said (and is quite readily) about the Democratic Party.

Hell, even Micheal Moore says the Dems are a pathetic.

Well UK Wizard I was talking about the American Right Wing as you mentioned in in your reply.

If anyone supports freedom of choice in the USA.. it is indeed the left.

I think America could do with being a little more left wing and Britain could do with being a little more right wing

The top right wingers in America are bunch of nutters and the left wing leaders in Britain are pretty crazy as well

let me get this straight...you hate them for hating you?


You should let me borrow those rolly eyes so that I may use them on you, first, you don't know me, and lastly, when I say the above i'm referring to gays, i'm referring to people who aren't corporate monkey's, i'm referring to people who aren't in the oil industry, i'm referring to people who want the constitution restored, what the hell are you talking about, your comment really wasn't well thought out, so i'll stop here because i'm not wasting my time talking to a monkey.


And if that was a burn, well....it blew...

The Republican party is not hampering on anything. What are all of you complaining about? Bush has done a great job of ridding the world of terrorists and the tax cuts dont get me started. The military R&D(ahhhh yes) so engineers and scientists can have jobs.

I consider myself moderate, leaning more conservative. So yeah, I'd say conservative. I'm sorry to say it, but many liberals just don't look at both sides of the story. See, conservatives don't worry about being called racist, sexist, or being, "Politically correct". Take this scenario for example:

A major company is about to move into an area of the city. This new company would create thousands of new jobs, boosting the economy. There is one catch, the company wants a small tax break. A liberal would say, "No, we can't let big business cut corners like that. It would be unfair to other companies". And conservative may say, "Yeah, while we may lose a little money from the taxes, we would greatly make up for it by all the jobs it would create."

See, I just think that the conservative view in that is better.

The same might go for another company. See, it's all about morals. Pretend that a company is polluting the river that it is nearby. They have two options.

A.) They could just leave the river as it is, there are plenty of rivers in the world and water is a renewable source.

B.) They could spend alot of money cleaning it up.

A liberal might go with option B, saying that the river is too important. A conservative might say that cleaning up the river would cost the company money, and they would have to lay-off workers, cut back on wages, etc etc. I'm not saying that I'm right as a conservative, that's just how I line up (usually) Truelies, I don't mean to start an agrument with you, we've always gotten along in the past. These are just my views, and I respect other peoples.

Thank you. People complain so much about the military, but little do they know that it actually helps the economy with spinoff technologies. I bet most of you did not know that the internet was actually a military project initially. Did you know that the very highways that you drive on were designed originally to be used by the military for high speed transprtation of supplies? Dont take everything for granted. Ask the people who built it before complainng about every little thing. The higher R&D is offset by the greater economic rewards.

Actually fresh water is a VERY rare commodity on the face of the planet. I believe 3% of planet surface water is fresh of which only about 1% is actually available for humans to use.

The question is not so hypothetical as a real situation all over this planet.

The right is so suffocated in their thinking. Clenching control freaks who don't know to work with reality instead of fighting it. Some of the left tend to hyperventalate. I prefer eco-libertarians. We live in deep space on a small gem of a planet. We like to see people survive, progress and hopefully extend out into the Universe. We Love life, not death. While i live i love, when im toast im toast.

The instant is now. breath is the magic. love it.

Actually, you're wrong. I can't explain long, have to do it later because I have school, but you're wrong. One thing, real quick. Think of business's....who's the control freak there? Who wants the business to be independent, and make as much money as they are able to make, and who wants to tax people more for succeeding.

I don't want to start an enviromental discussion, but water can't go anywhere....we can't really run out of water on the earth. We'll always have that water that we have. Think of it, when you flush the toilet...or leave the faucet on. What happens to that water? It goes to the sewers, is filtered out, goes into the deconatmination proccess, and is used for our tap water again. We can re-use water over and over again...even water that's absorbed into the ground, we can get it out. Besides, I'm sure there are environmental conservatives. I believe in keeping the environment clean, in most cases.

And you just believe that? What about all the people who DID see an airplane? And it's kinda weird how some of those people said it was a small, passenger plane. Some people said it was a missle. Which is it? And newsflash: Planes make whooshing sounds, especially big ones.

They also make giant holes. Big ones. Not that pansy punch out followed by an inside job demolition. They also carry over 5,000 gallons of fuel. Which should at least singe the grass, possibly bust out some windows. They also can't be flown 2 feet off the ground at 500 miles an hour by a kid that failed a flight school simulator.

Yes, I believe it. I believe the right is complicit to our corrupt military and industrial co-businesses that good ol' Ike warned us about. I believe they own the media now too. I believe they conspire, lie and do anything in their power to discredit good men. I believe they behead Americans. I believe they hide Bin Laden. I beieve they are evil people that deserve death.

I also believe good people that support them have been fooled. I believe the right is wrong. On economics. On social policy. And on a dozen other things that really don't matter since I think Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rove, Bush, his father, Reagen, Nixon, Ford... (for crying out loud all of them) are TRAITORS. Complicit, lying, Anti-American, sell out traitors.

Ewwww, the left wants to give people health care. They're bad, bad men. Fine, if you're scared of socialism. Won't argue with you there. Though you are still wrong. But this fake war, tea party, mass deception, My Pet Goat crap has got to end and it will end in forced revolution as tyrants don't go quietly into the night. They require beheading.

Indeed I believe! What's your problem?

No, too bad it IS true. Republicans frequently alienate minority groups to strengthen their base, whereas the Democrats are usually more accepting of whomever -- women, blacks, hispanics, gays, etc. For the most part, they are an unaccepting group of people, and that's why they receive so much 'hate' from those people that they cast away whenever it is advantageous.
