Why Marxism? Why do so many people still espouse it after centuries of failure? One expert thinks Marx’s “angry, spitting moralism” is the main enticement. “Start with rationalised envy and a vindictive desire for power over others, wrap it in a drag of altruism, and then take it from there.” Look around you, from the Obamas down to the occupoopers and tell us if he has it nailed or not.

Do you think the Federal budget can be balanced? It can’t and here is why:

Uh, people who could work did, and those who didn’t survived on charity? I mean real charity, the voluntary kind.

Simple, the elites like it because they want to gain even more power.
The poor like it because they want free shit.

This is spot on. Leftist “intellectuals”, environmental nuts, race hustlers, etc, and their useful media idiots are real control freaks. no wonder they admire Mao, Stalin and other commie leaders. Like them, they enjoy having power over others and will do anything – lie, cheat, steal, kill – the works, to get and keep such power. With this as there real motivation, it is not surprising they care little for what happens to the country or their countrymen from any of their actions. To them only power and control is important.

They exhibit all the worst qualities of human nature.

Hahahaha! OMG! That made me laugh seeing my name there in your post! I just finished watching it and scrolled down to see that! So funny! For the record I’m not a Marxist nor a communist! I agree with everything the guy said there! Do I finally get a thumbs up? PLEASE!

Alright… but just cuz you made me laugh with the “PLEASE!” 🙂

Georgina

Aw, thanks guys! It’s nice to get a thumbs up here and there! As you both know… I haven’t been very popular 🙁 I’m trying to do better though!

That’s a girl!…Don’t worry about rose…She’ll come around. The smilie thing is a signature of Olivia…multiple smilies and winkies in her book long posts when ever she thinks she scored a point but didn’t. Annoying to say the least. But if you limit yours to indicate sarcasm, or that someone else’s post made you laugh, smile or just plain happy should be fine. Be patient with rose. she’s really a sweetheart of a gal.

It’s been a tough go but I’m the patient sort! And I have learned a thing or two that’s for sure…Robert W… (I so want to put a happy face there but I’ve had a few criticisms for over use! Oh to Hell with it… Happy faces all around! 😀 )

What do you expect? You’re confrontational, arrogant, and you are attracted to little girls, which skeeves me out, disgusts everyone, and offends others, and you don’t care.
GO AWAY!!!

I don’t see your point. Why should I care about disgusting or offending people I don’t like?

RobertW

i remember what my grandaddy had to say about child molesters… I won’t be specific but it had to do with rusty barbed wire and wooden fence posts.
my Grandaddy was a gentle man, a CPA and an preacher, one of the kindest most loving men i’ve ever known. he’d also been a teacher back in the days of the one room schoolhouses.
