    Democrats continually assert they're against socialism and they're really capitalists and they're just not moonbat crazy like the free market guys.

    So I'm wondering what democrats find so unappealing about socialism, which social or socioeconomic byproducts of the theory do you find oppressive..

    Democrats are not going to understand your question. But the answer is that they are socialists, they just don't like the word.

    He could have said "I hate socialists" and it would have been the same fucking thing.

    I would have, but I didn't know you hated Democrats.

    Here's a question. Name one plank of the Communist Manifesto that Democrats actually oppose

    The thing wrong with socialism is that Americans don't know what it is, and Pub dupe cold war dinosaurs think it's communism. Everyone agrees in the rest of the world that it's ALWAYS democratic, is really no more than well regulated capitalism with assistance for the unfortunate, but we'll call it Social Democracy so the dimwits' heads don't explode.

    Comrade, your post is perfectly wrong on every point in every dimension. I for one am impressed. It's so wrong I can't even figure out how to respond to it. Well done.

    Funny how conservatives are blaming Democrats for our fiscal issues when we don't have a government-controlled economy.

    No its not "regulated capitalism" its government dictated economy with redistribution of wealth.

    Well thats the pseudo-capitalist/socialist authoritarian version.

    Which is why Europe is all fucked up now...

    You got a bunch of retards that don't know how to take care of themselves and the socialist money has gone dry because there is none... Thats why you see all that crazy shit going on - people are throwing rocks because they want their redistributed free money.

    Its pretty fucking pathetic.

    The only hope Europeans have is to revert back to capitalism or go communist...
