bluering: we've already established that every word you've posted is either a lie, or else unattributed paranoid allegations from yourself or your fascist buddies.

Fox news is objective? That's got to be the most hilarious crap you've posted to date.

I'd like to think that I speak for most of the posters here when I say that I couldn't give a flying f*#k about your opinions - you are incapable of expressing a single comment that any rational commentator would agree with.

Remember to look under your bed before going to sleep. Fox news has reminded us that there's often a commie hiding there & they wait until we're asleep so they can whisper in our ears and brainwash us with quotes from Das Kapital.

On the positive side, I feel a glimmer of hope for the future to note that almost every one of your countrymen is still capable of recognizing fascist crap for what it is.

Just once, blueringworm, offer an amazing fact that can be verified by someone who isn't wearing a swastika brassard.

Interesting that you perpetuate 'Bush-tyle Fascism', while you deny the opposite.

Conspiracy?

Only you can be right, or correct. I am full of sh#t. Who has the blinders on?

That is fine. It's still a free country. Have fun!

No, Ghost, he just seems phony.

Wears too much religion on his shoulder. And as a religious dude myself, he seems to USE it too much.

Just the way I see it...

The fact that you think facism is the "opposite" of communism illustrates that you either don't understand them or you don't understand what "opposite" means.

What I meant, HDDJ, is that if you're going to think of Bush as a fascist, you have to look at the other side of the aisle and call most progressives, pinkos.

Bluering's mind won't be changed, come hell or high water.

Communism is just another religion founded on faith in a fictional reality.




It's the religion responsible for more death, poverty and suffering than all others combined.

94 million deaths in the 20th century.

http://www.informationisbeautiful.net/visualizations/20th-century-death/




And that's not counting the ones from failed economic and agricultural policies that produced famine.

Add those in (47 million) and the total body count is a staggering 141 million deaths.

No other religion comes close even with a head start of a few millennia.

Well damn!

That website says it, so it must be true.

Does it show the ravages of capitalism over the past 250 years?

Anyway, I'm going to take my own advice and not argue with people who won't listen.

Randisi- That is very good advice. If people want to believe nonsense, so be it. It doesn't affect me unless I let it.

Arguing on the internet is a fools errand.

Wait, I thought that's why it was invented?

Randisi, capitalism does have its shortcomings but it pales in comparison to
Stalin's forced collectivization and persecution of the kulaks which directly
eliminated up to 10 million.

I will just quickly comment that Stalin a totalitarian, not a communist.

No, Stalin in no way practiced Communism.

Communism in theory is not about state control, quite the opposite really.

But in practice it often became that.

But it wasn't communism, rather the worst form of capitalism, state-owned property.

The ravages of capitalism...I wonder what that could do for Africa and Central America. People living in utter poverty and disease will not be lifted up by Socialism (like Zimbabwe, formerly productive Rhodesia) or Communism.

The issue on our southern border should be evidence that people hate corrupt socialist gov'ts. It's especially bad in 2nd 3rd world cultures. It turns to despotism.

Capitalism, despite what you think, is individualistic. It's not corporate. Sure, our country has gotten out of control to some degree, but it's nothing that can't be cured.

Our capitalist republic has been corrupted for other reasons, and one of them is greed at the expense of fairness. There are many reasons why. Many have to do with politicians and lobbyists f*#king us dry with no regard for the future health of our Republic.

So, I fell all your pain there, and I agree. But the answer is NOT to reverse direction towards socialism. The answer is to reel in the cheaters, the lobbyists, and the corruption.

The problem is that Congress (both sides for the most part) is in on the game. We need to elect real people who actually give a f*#k about the welfare of our Republic, and are not just in it for the money.

Some of them know this and they will lie to you until they're elected. They'll claim all sorts of bullshit about being humble, man of the people, or whatever...

Listen carefully to their rhetoric. And look at their pasts. Were they actually working people, or just gov't tools or academicians. These people have no clue how to get work done. Lawyers are the worst.

Well if that is true then how would those who don't want to participate be
brought into the 'fold'? Gentle persuasion?
