    ...
    The best scholarship now tells us that between 1917 and 1989 approximately 100 million people were murdered by various Marxist regimes, and millions more were tortured, starved, exiled, enslaved, and sent to concentration camps. Collectivization, one-party rule, man-made famine, secret police, arrests, propaganda, censorship, ethnic cleansing, purges, show trials, reeducation camps, gulags, firing squads, and killing fields

    We should not be deceived, however, by the academic repackaging of Marxism. This “new” Marxism is little more than a wolf in a don’s robe. Today’s academic Marxists still carry the old message that individualism is bad and collectivism is good; they still believe that Marxism—despite everything we know about it—is a noble ideal worth fighting for. Marxist intellectuals and their surrogates still work very hard to exonerate Marxism from any responsibility for the tyranny and genocide associated with communism in practice. They assure us ad nauseam that the real problem is not with Marxist theory but with “unforeseen historical circumstances” and with the mistakes of well-meaning but misguided revolutionaries. Marxist tyrants such as Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot were aberrations, we are told, deviationists from “true” Marxism. Stalinism, Maoism, or Pol Potism may be responsible for millions dead, but never Marxism. Real socialism, we are told repeatedly, has not yet been tried.

    Really?
    Please tell how voting for one douche bag over another douche bag will make a diff. Do you really think our elected officials make decisions?
    Sweet talkin Clinton or George Dumbass Bush ran this country? BananaHead Obama runs it now? Please.

    Why did Hank Paulson leave a $37mil job as CEO of Goldman Sachs and take a $180k job to run the US treasury?


    Former OMB Director under Reagan and congressman David Stockman may help some understand where we are headin.

    The only difference between a Democrat and a Republican is where they spend the money they screw out of you. Traditionally one group spends it on failed feel good social programs, and the other group on bombs, bullets, and big business.

    Our country is in deep crap. If only we had true leaders and statesmen running for office instead of the yes men ass kissers we have now.

    As far as Marxism is concerned; socialism can only possibly work in small groups of extremely like minded people, and the only groups that seem to make it work are the Israeli kibbutzes and the Amish.
    I have more ideas than ambition.

    Guys,
    I understand there are good intentions here, but politics are not allowed on the site.
