It's only an expression, folks. No need to get thy undies in a bunch.
I thought the phrase, "lesser of two evils," , was a middle of the road response.

I can see how it might be perceived as such. And, I am in no way offended by your responses. No worries, buddy.:-)

As I have stated many times her on Topix, I look for a time when government is no longer needed. Not in favor of some free-for-all capitalist playground, but rather a realization that collectivism is humanity's natural state. A time when we realize that humanity accomplishes so much more when we cooperate, as oppposed to this Randian every-man-for-himself way of life.

Do away with money! Do away with privatization! Do away with competition! These things only serve as chains on the masses held tight by a very few wealthy masters.

There is a better way, my friends. That way way is cooperation. We don't need bosses to control our livelihood. We don't need government to get things done. WE, THE PEOPLE can do it ourselves! Not within the confines of a structure set up by a few to control the many, but simply by a sense of community. Just as we support our families, so too can we support humanity.

To quote Jacob Marley: "Mankind was my business!"

If a home needs to be built, build it. If food needs to be produced, produce it. People know what needs to be done in life. There is absolutely no need for your boss or for your government to run your life! There is no need for them to tell you how much food your family can have, how much healthcare your family can have, or whether your family can even have a roof over their heads.

The only reason these few people have power over us is because we gave it to them. WE DO NOT NEED THEM!

I am not sure, but you might be dumber than Barney and that is saying a lot. You can see what almost 50 years of the Great Society has done for us. It would be nice if all would contribute equally, just isn't ever going to happen.

All I can say is Churm, like me, will be all over THIS Post(or at least a few points in it)!!! Only I have other things to do at the moment. Like run to the bakery for a giant Chocolate Eclair that I've been craving.

I just can't stop shaking my head on this one though. Maybe the person who makes the eclairs did it out of the goodness of their heart because they knew I wanted/needed one. Maybe it will be free! And maybe the person manning the bakery will stay there all night incase I want more eclairs later.

I do not blame Worrier or Raptor for their misperceptions. They are perfectly understandable, given that our masters have been drumming those misperceptions into our cultural identity for centuries.

In fact, Raptor's comment line: Conserve Wildlife Habitat... I could not agree more! How much wildlife habitat has already been irretrievably lost due to wanton capitalism's never-ending exploitation of our planet's finite resources? For what? Nothing more than money and the power that it brings.

Conserve Wildlife Habitat? ABSOLUTELY!

The chocolate eclairs are pretty good at this place. But wouldn't it suck if someone at a different bakery didn't make BETTER chocolate eclairs? Imagine ALL Chocolate Eclairs tasting the same.

They were sold out of Chocolate Eclairs today. I chose an Apple Turnover instead. I could have went to a different bakery, but I chose not to. Isn't it nice to have choices? Isn't it nice to have competitors?

Take that word ("cooperate")and use it the same as you would use the word "competitors.

Could one bakery not cooperate with the other to accomplish your goal, get you, what you wanted to eat?

Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve. Thoughts are things! And powerful things at that, when mixed with definiteness of purpose, and burning desire, can be translated into riches.

I know exactly what it means. The fact still remains, neither candidate is the right one to defend our republic and keep us from moving further into socialism.

It's actually a response that the majority of the population espouse, regardless of the side they are on. The problem with it is that people many times are voting for someone they don't really want at all, simply because of the letter behind their name or they dislike the other guy worse. When the voters of this country realize our founders vision and start researching ALL candidates and voting their conscience instead of who the media is promoting, we can take our country back.

It sounds great but in reality it won't work. Let's say one bakery owner is more friendly than the other bakery owner. At some point customers will begin to go to the more friendly bakery simply because they get better customer service. The less friendly bakery will start to have trouble paying their bills. At this point the less friendly bakery will start looking out for #1 and will probably start offering lower prices or invest in something the friendly bakery doesn't have in order to attract enough customers to pay the bills. Competition will begin and you will end up with a pecking order of bakeries with some just killing it, others struggling to pay bills, and everything in between.
