    It's my opinion that the left wing is not an opponent of capitalism. What do you think?

    Half of them want to end it, the other half want to freeload off of it while bitching about it.

    The commies in Congress have given the impression that Socialism means free stuff.
    What it really means is government control of business and income.

    That is a rather complicated question. For you see, you have the naïve moonbats of the Left who follow the demagogues of the Left.

    Take the two socialists in American politics who are Bernie Sanders and the next Sarah Palin of politics, you know, Crazy eyes. (please don't make me spell her name)

    Both say they are socialists but neither are advocating a complete government takeover of industry, which is the traditional definition of socialist. No, both just want to give a bunch more free stuff to people as they live a lavish lifestyle that the common man cannot.

    Are they serious? Who knows? All I know is that they are dangerous.

    Considering 75% of them don't even know what capitalism is, I can't answer the question.

    I think you’re crazy. Democrats would install a communist state so fast it would make your head spin. If your head was still attached after their murder spree.
