    It all comes down to symbolism over substance. As long as their intentions are in a good place the end result is moot.

    As long as he constantly re-assures me, with watery eyes, that he 'feels my pain', he's my hero, and can do no wrong.

    Look at Communism itself..Liberals love the notion or idea of it, but forget the actual outcome of a system that essentially makes everyone equal (poor)!!!

    Where do you get the crazy idea that we love communism. Sorry but I prefer CAPITALISM. I take pride in my business and knowing that I am self sufficient. I also believe that there should be a safety net in case things go bad (ie loss of job) just so people don't end up losing their house or being evicted. It's the abuses of these safety nets that need to be overhauled. Please stop making those rediculous generalization. Communism is nothing but proven failure.

    Hey minute, she said "LIBERALS". How many times I have I seen you post "I am NOT a liberal"? We all knew you were a liberal in hiding and this post of yours proves it. You can now come out of the closet!

    The idea or ideal of communism is truly a beautiful idea; sadly it relies far too strongly on the innate goodness of humanity and usually ends in tyranny.

    The fact that in reality communism fails miserably does not make the idea any less beautiful, on the other hand the beauty of the idea does not make the reality any less harsh.

    The notion that everyone has eqaul may in theory be nice, however aside from the economic failures, Communism takes away freedom and that is why there is tyranny and blood shed.
