"Socialism needs two legs on which to stand; a right and a left. 
While appearing to be in complete opposition to one another, 
they both march in the same direction."

American columnist

    And both legs march straight into communism which is exactly the direction that Pelosi and the gang are headed.

    Applicable to America today which is ruled by the corporate elete and its paid whores (politicians) both of which are protected by its military. And you thought the military was here to protect your freedom... Since WWll that has been the situation and that's even questionable...

    That Paul Proctor is drawing a simile that is somewhat accurate, yet pointless. Given that it could apply it to so many ideologies. While I am not a christian ....... the phrase; do unto others as you would have done unto you; love thy neighbour as thy self. Are very social in context and difficult to put into practice. It has been pointed out previously that if the person Jesus of Nazareth lived today? Then you would have most likely nuked him, for being a communist? I am not a communist, either. I seems that the ideology is seriously misunderstood and almost impossible to put into practice.

    Divide and conquer. The ruling class just keeps the masses fighting with each other about petty nonsense, while they are laughing all the way to the bank. Collectivism never ceases to be the tool of the tyrant. Jamie, your post is unintelligible.

    Accurate description of Democratic Party and establishment Republicans. Out of touch with Founding Father's intent of America under the Constitution and basic (quickly fading) American values
