One thing that annoys me more than anything else is:
Explaining the difference to people of what a liberal and a socialist is, many times to the same poster, only for the libel to continue unabbated. I guess by calling most liberals "socialists" that allows the far right lunatics with their middle age view of government, to get away with their elitist driven agenda of privitising everything under the sun and destroying any and all forms of social welfare.
All for the benefit of having an enormous military-industrial complex to be able to go to war at a moments notice. As for laissez faire capitalism I think both want that and it shows with their actions. Multinational companies totally immune from anti-trust legislation. Banks getting trillions of dollars with the fake hope of creating jobs, when all they had to do was increase tariffs.
So basically all I hear are sex scandal allegations and birth control issues. What a way to say "I agree with the beorgoise screwing me over" with so many strawman obfuscations. Pathetic!
You are correct. The term combining the two terms into "liberal socialist" is not in any way fair to all of the good, honest, hard-working Socialists out there. Just like applying the term "conservative" to the Libertarians is also an injustice.
