    I was involved in political discussions with members of another board. I was depressed and dis-heartened by the amount of people who thought socialism/communism was a good and viable form of government. I am conservative/libertarian with an insatiable, bordering OCD, for the truth in history. I will probably start out slow, until I get my feet wet, then promptly land on the heads of people who ignore the realities, of the misery, that communism and socialism bring to the people that have to live under those conditions. Looking forward to getting to know everyone....G

    P.S. I'm with Crow...metal kicks ass!!! :)

    Welcome aboard!

    I'll await your readiness to describe your idea of socialism/communism before making any judgments. ;)

    Sorry, fresh outa sanity, but we're running a special on partisan name calling. :D

    Plenty of variety, socialists, liberals, progressive, democrats, republicans, conservatives, libertarians, and I've even seen an anarchist or two.

    Welcome and enjoy. :thup:

    Just for you goldcatt...

    Socialism-Promises everything to gain power and control, then watches as riots break out because the citizens realize the government can't keep it's promises. Also, it removes initiative because people have to "work" for less and less.

    Communism-Takes everything you have for the good of everyone else. Soon no one has anything, and are reduced to standing in line for hours, just to get the minimum of food and other necessities. China looks good on paper, but the citizens of that country live in hive like buildings above the factories they work in....For about $10 dollars a day. It will collapse within the next ten years.

    this right here is the cynics corner. the crusty oldtimers with nothin to do. we need your seed if you're against the libs greed, and their electric obama acid socialism test.
    the libs here are really liberal, but they're not too bright. don't take any shit from anyone, especially al dante. this is a fun group, anything goes. i'll probably cross paths with you in the romper flame room. cheers mate !
