CK, you're confused if you think there really is a difference between socialism and communism. Did you somehow forget that the USSR was the Union of Soviet SOCIALIST Republics, or that the Nazis were the National SOCIALIST Workers Party? Socialism, Communism, and Fascism are just different names for the same basic philosophy of state supremacy -- it`s a distinction without a difference. If there is a difference, it`s only in the degree to which it is implemented. You can have watered-down democratic socialism or full-strength totalitarian socialism, but regardless of whether you drink your whiskey with water or straight up, you`re drinking the same thing, and you`re going to have the same hangover in the morning.

And there is absolutely NOTHING that is solved better with socialism. Every single failure that you attribute to capitalism is caused by the intrusion of socialism and central planning into the capitalist system. Name three, and I`ll prove it to you.

Do you own a business? I do. I employ, at any given time, around 60 people.

Yes, I do, but I gave up having employees 30 years ago. It wasn't worth the hassle then, and I can`t even imagine what it would be like now. With my current business, I can contract with other companies for anything I can`t or don`t want to do myself. It saves me time, money, and headaches in the long run.

And if nobody likes us, how come we take in more immigrants than the entire rest of the world COMBINED? It doesn`t even make sense, which, of course, is typical of liberal thinking.

If you cut the pay of elected officials, the only people who would run for office would be crooks who would make their money through bribery and graft. We should pay elected officials enough to attract honest and competent people who won`t have to whore themselves to special interests to be able to maintain two homes and fly back and forth between them.

@OldOllie- Do you own a business? I do. I employ, at any given time, around 60 people.
The problem with most folks who don't like "Obamacare"- as I see it- is greed for the sake of greed.
Why don`t we offset your chicken little the-sky-is-falling fears by cutting Military spending by 80%? Cut our foreign aid completely?- nobody likes us anyway.

OldOllie: You sound like it's 50`s and you`re scared of communism.. I think you`ve confused socialism with communism, there are issues that are solved better with socialism and issues that free market does best and the mix between the two is not only possible, it`s most likely the best choice we have.

Ignoring that fact is one-stop-short from stupid. You even admit that it`s not your objective opinion but just because it serves you good. That`s mighty selfish of you.

Wow. One party member says he's not going to give control of the floor to the other party. That`s got to be a first. Of all time. Nice find.
