    Go to Venezuela and tell the people there that their condition is a "straw man argument" why dontcha ?

    While on you're touring the socialist/Communist world, do the same in Cuba, Turkey and China.

    Your refusal to see REALITY is the real consistency.[/QUOTE]
    Their condition is by definition no argument, it is a condition. Your interpretation of that condition and your interpretation of my analysis of it sure as hell is. Can you show me how you make the leap of me saying that Venezuela's economic crisis is not primarily a result of their social policies to me in any way is not caring about what is happening? If you can't make that leap it is a STRAW MAN .

    Foreign aid is different from military aid.
    You're trying to change the subject.

    But yes, we give foreign aid to our enemies as well as our friends.

    Show of hands......is this even worth pursuing? I mean, I could....but I don't see the point. Not copping out, I just truly don't see where this will lead anywhere constructive or worthwhile. Sry.

    You're free to consider it a straw man if you like.

    So when I ask you very politely to give me a reasoning for an assertion you make, answering me is not "not constructive or worthwhile?" I see... I'm afraid you would have to come out with something better if you don't want me to conclude you aren't copping out. I'll ask again. How do you get from defense of Social Democracy, to, "you don't care about what's happening in Venezuela?" Honest question.

    The quickest way to convert from Socialism to Communism is starve the population.

    Then the commies come to save the day.....after a couple of million people have died.

    You know, you really are a basic human unit. You rather admit to being a coward then to being wrong.
