    This person obviously doesn't know what socialism really is.

    Totally lame

    Do you really have any idea of what socialism is? We could easily substitute the word "Republican" for "Socialist" and be just as accurate

    1. Republicans believe in use of force to gain their personal ends

    2. Republicans believe in slavery

    3. Republicans are racist

    need more??

    Disagree. And here's just one reason.

    Slavery? No, if you want slavery think about this. How much time do you spend at work? How much vacation time do you get in a year? You should work enough to meet your needs, not to line the pockets of those who own your labour.

    Nice but decidedly not true.
    Republicans fought a war to eliminate slavery.
    Republicans do not believe in the use of force for personal ends. In fact, they want limits on government power, period.

    So thanks, but your silly talking points are flat.

    Most reasonable people who understand socialism will.

    People who have a literacy problem may not, because they probably think that "socialism" means a group of your neighbors.

    Let's see, it is hard to slavery in socialism, since it is based on equality.
    Also socialism is closer to true democracy, then our current government is.

    You people the mistake of looking at Russia and China, and believing that is what communism and socialism is. When in reality, they do not represent the true form of either.

    Jeez Allie you loaded that up.

    I assume you're a reasonable person. Can you explain what socialism is?
