First you did not answer my question. Second, if taxpayer also did not answer the question he responded to, then his post was not so great.

How can this be a debate if you guys keep running from questions and you condone those who do so with a pat on the back?

So, you claim the state authority to steal property is not communist. You have related to actions of the government impinging on business as ok, communism. It's often said that the hallmark of a free society is when freedom of speech is sacrosanct, meaning that one has the freedom to express opinions or disagreements with regards to the existing political or social order. Having the freedom to talk aloud or to engage in heated debates against government authorities but only with limits is, communisms. The first, fundamental condition for the introduction of your communism is the political liberation of the people through a twisted democratic constitution you support.
You support the established and false democracy that guaranteeing the subsistence of the user and non-producer. You support limiting private property in such a way that it gradually prepares the way for its transformation into social property, by progressive taxation, limitation of the right of inheritance in favor of the state. By supporting employing non-American worker downgrades the quality of life for those who support the ideas of American freedoms. Pushing them into having to rely on the state for survival. You support the state controlling and educating all children at the expense of the working Americas. Reject existing religions in which you make all existing religions superfluous and supersede them with communist rule.
So what statements have you made that have been consored by government?

Most all of your charges are what you see government doing then adding the slippery slope argument to it. What America is today is not communism. It may have some socialism, but it is not communism.

You have still failed to show what Arnold supports that is in the communist manifesto as you once made claim to. Now either show evidence of your claim or look like a liar and a chicken.

But Waco will keep patting you one the back no matter how much you run from the questions. He likes to enable poor debating.

Taxpayer, I don't totally agree with everything you have posted. I, well did own land and I never had the threat of it being taken from me. Land and your home can be taken if the taxes are paid. I don't like paying property taxes; however, those taxes are used to help fund a multitude of things you might need one day, i.e. local firefighters, police dept, roads, local libraries, parks etc. What I don't like is how my property tax would go up and for the past 3-4 years, the sell of real estate decreased about 30%.
It's not against the law to stand on the street corner and peacefully picket, hand out flyers or stand there and tell everyone that passes by your opinion about today's politics and how it makes you mad as hell, just as long as you don't harass others or you find one that doesn't agree with you and you guys decide to throw down on main street.
I was reading from others' post, but personally I've never been able to read any material I wish to or buy any reading or viewing material I want to. I've never been told by the government what to do in my home or on my property. I don't know where you live, but I don't care enough what my neighbors are doing in view or behind closed doors to call the police. Their time is better spent trying to get real criminals off the street and not someone reading "Catcher in the Rye".
I will agree with you on the fact we are making more Americans dependent daily on government and that needs to stop. We need to take pork in all these laws being passed to educate, and mandate these people get up off their butts and make their way the same as you and I. A little hard work never killed anyone, but the cycle of government dependency to live has to stop.
I've never been told I cannot worship freely. I've been ridiculed on here by posters, but until the doors at locked at my local church, I'll continue to worship when and where I want and if my religious freedom is infringed upon, I know what I believe in my heart and my mind and that can't be taken away.
Public schools are necessary. I chose to send my child to private school where I paid tuition there and still paid my taxes that provided monies for public education. You get what you pay for and in N.C. you certainly can tell it must be a small bit as far behind as our children are behind other states in public schools. Home schooling is a good alternative but must be taken seriously by parents.
Well, that about covers it.
Thanks for standing up to your fellow conservative here. This is evidence you are at least to the left of Taxpayer. Waco says you are a moderate. This is evidence you are at least moderate in comparison to taxpayer.

The republikan party is divided between the far right and the extreme right wing nuts. Since they control the house of representatives,don't expect much progess for the next 4 years either.

Just like the democrats are divided between the far left and the extreme left wing nuts. You know every party has both TSF, so call both parties out. Give credit to both parties where credit is due. What do you consider yourself?

Maybe Congressman Hank Johnson can step in after he finishes making sure Guam will not tip over and make some sense with these right wing nuts. Lord knows, he's sooooo smart!!!! I don't know how left he is but I'm sure every time I watch the you tube video that his mind has "left". Goodness gracious.

Manfreid, if you were able to get The Military Channel that we have here stateside, they show many atrocities committed by Hitler such as killing and torturing the Jews or just about anyone they didn't agree with, far more graphic than this. I think everyone should watch these so we'll know what we do and don't want in a leader in any country in power. It was a very bad time during Hitler's rule and we all should be mindful that we never allow someone such as Hitler to commit such atrocities. That crazy guy over Syria is just about as bad. Thanks for reminding us all of what we don't want. If you didn't like the Lawrence Welk Show, maybe you would like an old tv show called Hogan's Heroes.
So, you like watching atrocities in America, that's interesting and hypocritical. If you don't like watching non-graphic historical newsreels, maybe you would like old television shows and comic strips like Gomer Pyle and Beetle Bailey. They're really much more amusing than Lawrence Welk!:)

Nothing hypocritcal about watching atrocities that happened in history. We learn from our mistakes and others'. I don't think very young children need to be exposed to graphic war stories, but I do think that our children need to see what war is about and the price paid by not only our military but the military of other countries to ensure(?) our freedom and that genocide committed by Hitler and others never happen again. Never hurts to watch every now and then and be thankful we were not a part of those atrocities.

Manfreid, don't leave out Dennis the Menace. My dad still takes the paper (that's what we call it around here) and he loves to read Dennis the Menace, The Family Circle and Blondie. I love me some Gomer Pyle, shizaaam!!!:) Hey, I watched Adam-12 the other night. If I were in Hollywood back then, I do believe I could have made it on those type shows. Talk about lame, but still I enjoy watching the oldies. Oh Manfreid if you could get "Duck Dynasty" I just bet you would like it. It's on A&E and I can't get enough of that show. Look it up and read about the show. It's good, clean entertainment.:)

The difference I see is that republikans are holding the country and economy hostage with their tax breaks for the rich agenda of blocking everything unless and until they get more tax breaks and welfare for the rich. Some democrats are extreme in their refusal to see that we cannot continue to expand or even maintain at the present rate the give aways and freebies to everyone for every thing. I consider myself a loyal citizen of the United States of America rather than a loyalist to some political party. Looking only at numbers, it is clear that the only way out of our financial pickle is much higher taxes for everyone, drastic cuts to the military, drastic cuts to tax loopholes,drastic cuts to subsidies, elimination of exemptions,eliminations of tax credits, charging oil companies for the oil that we are presently almost giving them, cuts to social programs and finally, honest and efficient business management of our natural resources for the benefit of our country rather than the well connected.

Who the hell is going to get elected telling people they have to pay more taxes? Do you see the problem here? People want a painless way out.

In 1984, Walter Mondale ran on the platform to raise taxes. So, what did Ronald Reagan do when he got re-elected? He immediately followed Mondale's advice.

SURE he did.But, if he had SAID"I'm going to raise taxes"....he wouldn't have been elected, perhaps.Is it just me, or are people less willing to pay higher taxes these days?

Democrats don't have a nut faction in our party like The Tea Party in yours that dominates your platform and agenda. The 66 Tea Party jerks in the House that didn't want to give Sandy Relief funding proves my point.
