"Seventeen Ron Paul delegates from Massachusetts have been disqualified from the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida. The motion comes after the 17 members refused to sign an affidavit that would back Mitt Romney at the RNC.

"Pure nonsense. A marxist would answer you that it is precisely capitalism wich takes what others do... through the process of expropiation of surplus value.

I am a proud neo-marxist however
