It's interesting that someone who became indignant at the notion of being called a socialist(even though I didn't) seems to be defending socialism quite a bit.




Only because you do not understand what true socialism is and what it is not. I despise ignorance.

You have another spotted. Go protest them.

Right and those other things work. Any examples?

Putting people in office who will end up being bought is not really changing anything.


Seems to me like the Tea Party folks are sticking to their guns.

The culture in Washington has already changed because of them.

We're talking about cutting spending, bringing the country back to fiscal health, returning to Constitutional governance, empowering the individual, and economic liberty.

If you want to change the conversation you will not be able to do it with temper tantrums and threats of revolution.

I fully understand it.

My family escaped a socialist/communist country in 1979. They didn't come here to have more of the same crap shoved down their throats.

Seems to me that the tea party was hijacked by wall street speculators the Koch brothers.

The Tea Party movement is for big business only. Or they would address the real issues and not the ones that have advantage to mainly the rich. They are not cutting defense, or spending in areas that do not help the American people. What are they cutting? The few things that Government should be for. You really need to wake up and look which way the wind is blowing kid.

PS whichever right wing moron keeps staring this kids posts please stop, it is all to obvious to those of us with a mind of our own still.

Really it worked last time? Must have been something small cause you raise a stink around here about a whole lot of stuff. You need to hit him up over and over till he shrinks that government to where you want.

well said i only hope these protest bring back the anti monoply bills that where removed in the 1980's it allowed company's to ballon so when they fall it will take us all with them. The banks need to be split there ( to big to fail ) they should of broke out the chain saw and made them into smaller pieces. It isn't about money its just the same thing from gov cut spending on the ones who barely get by and hand cash to the ones taking everything. At this rate there will be 1 bank/media/corporation running everything in my lifetime. The econemy would fix itself fast with slight increase in multi-millionair / billionair taxes with some anti monopoly laws and fixing the glass-steagall bill. Them 3 things would self regulate into the system that works for the people and not the few. the current system just needs a minor fix

Maybe you should understand the concept of democracy, and the soldiers which fight for my country and the fact that they go unsung.

I'm not a kid.

I don't hate rich people.

And it isn't the governments job to take care of people from cradle to grave. If that's what you want I point to the basket case that is the EU and their socialist structures that are so far in debt that there is talk of a collapse within weeks or months of the Eurozone. Maybe you can move there and see for yourself how your form of higher thinking socialism works.

That and the Glass-Steagall act should be brought back.

Monopolies and banks being allowed to gamble with depositor money and loan derivatives should certainly be and remain illegal. In all of the 2000 or so pages of the Dodd-Frank Fin-Reg bill, none of that has taken place. Makes you wonder.

This is a REPUBLIC. No they do not go unsung they have the "Support the troops" thing that got thought up in a think tank so you will support the war.

Sorry most of our troops are not heroes, They are not defending you but making you more unsafe. They joined for the money and college because a slick recruiter talked them into it. The last time our nation fought to defend itself was the war of 1812.

Look up the real facts of our history. Even WWII was not in defense of our nation. The Japanese were trying desperately to end the naval blockade on there country and were not going any further.

That would seem to prove my point that American lives are being wasted unjustly, but I guess not everyone can read between the lines.

No.

You missed another easy point I was making. The mindset of the extreme right. :shk: They will agree no matter what as long as the other person is a fellow brown shirt, I mean right winger.

I want to see people wake up and shake the shackles off that have been on us for thousands of years.
