    Propaganda and misleading bullshit... with the omission of the fact that people must be forced to give the fruits of their own labor to those who contribute less or don't contribute at all.. we're not a goddamn hive or a goddamn Borg cube... the ruling elite must still use government as the force to ensure compliance,, you are a prisoner and slave of the state...

    I fully wish for any misguided socialism supporter would go and just live in a supposed socialist country... they will indeed soon be screaming to come back to the freedoms (individual, monetary, and legal) that they take for granted in a free society

    Thanks for warning us what would be in your post
    You sure made good on the promise.

    I suggest getting your information from sources other than conservative pundits.

    I heard a young man relate this college confrontation with his professor, a committed socialist:
    “Professor, I got a D on the exam, and I admit I deserved it.”
    He turned to the class, and asked, “Anyone get an A?”

    When a young lady raised her hand, the student continued, “This is my friend, Karen, she studied a lot harder than I did, and she did a much better job than I did in picking parents,…but I think, professor, that you should change both of our grades to B. That would be educational justice!”

    What an excellent deconstruction of socialism!

    Some of us get our information from all over the place. But then again some of us went to school before they started indoctrinating our kids.

    Communism has always been a hardship on it's people. That's who's running the White House right now.

    Socialism can be good if you make sure you check abuse...but since our Congress is so corrupt themselves I seriously doubt they have the will or the incentive to start teaching the American Public to be more conscientious.

    I visited East Germany when it was still officially the Deutsche Demokratische Republik. It was quite an eye-opener to see how things can be when you have an economy that is totally centrally-run by the government. Was pretty damn ugly.
