    I've increasingly heard Barack Obama depicted as a Marxist, so I'd be curious to know what Marxist theories he advocates.

    Moreover, I'd be curious to know of his accusers' knowledge of Marxism. Let's take an example of Marxian political economy: crisis theory. When it comes to two specific forms of crisis, underconsumption crisis and profit squeeze crisis, which occurs when the capitalist class is too strong and which occurs when they are too weak?

    All I know is he is a dumb ass. Most marxists are dumb asses. Therefore, he's a marxist dumbass. Anyone who follows ant farm mentality is a dumb ass. People are indivuals by nature. Marxism is collectivist, much like an ant farm. If ant farm doesn't work as a metaphore than how about "beehive"?

    No matter what, far leftists are borderline mental retards with the ability to convey their thoughts and that's it.

    Wow, you've pretty much just validated for me every negative assumption I make about posters who sling around the term "marxist" (or socialist for that matter). Thanks!!!

    Take a bow, man!

    Perhaps references to Marxism and socialism are bullshit mostly parroted by rightist idiots who know nothing about Marxist or socialist theory. There's my take on it.
