    I prefer a Leopold Mark IV 10x40 on top of a Remington M40.

    What the ruling class likes about communism is that you rubes don't understand it. Properly understood, it is a major threat to the ruling class.

    The Democrat Party promotes reforms to the capitalist system that would best be described as social democracy. Well, at least when they are not promoting their neo-liberal policies that make the socio-economic reforms necessary.

    Okay. The problem you have is first, the ruling class will never promote it’s own demise. Secondly, the ruling clsss knows they win under communism because they will control everything. Not unlike what we have today, only worse.

    Communism, properly understood, is a classless society.
    There would be no ruling class. They would not have the economic means to subjugate you.

    If they're not wearing a MAGA hat or flying a flag, they're Communists!

    You are fooling yourself. The ruling class knows they win big under communism, which is why they support it so whole heartedly.

    I know the text book definition fits your description but put into practice, it never will be classless.

    Why do all these radical Left wing Communists keep saying Corporate America is evil.......
    but......
    Then exclude the ones that support THEIR cause from the list......

    They're just fine with all the HUGE Leftist corporations that fully support their agendas......

    Google (Is there a more powerful force for radical Left agendas?)
    Amazon (has a phallic symbol in it's logo, where's the outrage from feminist leftists?)
    Facebook
    Starbucks
    Microsoft
    Corporations that support total gun control..ie...Dick's sporting Goods....they FLOCK to those corporations

    In fact, the Left has an iron grip on Corporate America...they're actually only complaining about the few Conservative or Christian businesses remaining.
