You like changing the subject to deflect away from your own ignorance, don't you. And you wouldn't know or recognize the truth if it fell out of the sky, landed on your face, and started to wiggle. You have bought hook, line and sinker into the liberal mantra of "it's all because of those evil conservatives that we can't get ahead in life...oh poor me, oh poor me. It's not fault I'm a failure...it's those evil conservatives fault that I'm a loser....etc. etc. etc."
You truly are pathetic. Now go drink another keg of that Obama kool-aid.
People:
1. If you've been on Topix very long, you see how all these losers sound alike.
Obviously, they're all being told what to say by the same source (the Elite), regardless of how it's disseminated to them.

2. They're not smart enough to come up with the simplest ideas on their own, like the kool-aid thing. I doubt if most even know what that means.

3. They're so wrong, yet so arrogant, which is why they never have any proof, which is why they keep repeating the same lies over and over again.

4. They’re so blinded by hatred that they never see how they’re being manipulated by their worst enemies.

Capitalism has never existed in the United States just in name which the US was founded on Socialism and is still based on a hybrid form of Socialism which our Form of Government especially the Federal Government would never allow Capitalism to exist here.

In this article, you'll explore capitalism: its roots, principles and effects, benefits and shortcomings. We'll find out how capitalism compares to the alternative method of doing business. Incidentally, the United States doesn't actually practice capitalism. No one does these days.

An Unfinished Revolution: Karl Marx and Abraham Lincoln

by Robin Blackburn, Abraham Lincoln, and Karl Marx

The impact of the American Civil War on Karl Marx, and Karl Marx on America.

Karl Marx and Abraham Lincoln exchanged letters at the end of the Civil War. Although they were divided by far more than the Atlantic Ocean, they agreed on the cause of “free labor” and the urgent need to end slavery. In his introduction, Robin Blackburn argues that Lincoln’s response signaled the importance of the German American community and the role of the international communists in opposing European recognition of the Confederacy.

The ideals of communism, voiced through the International Working Men’s Association, attracted many thousands of supporters throughout the US, and helped spread the demand for an eight-hour day. Blackburn shows how the IWA in America—born out of the Civil War—sought to radicalize Lincoln’s unfinished revolution and to advance the rights of labor, uniting black and white, men and women, native and foreign-born. The International contributed to a profound critique of the capitalist robber barons who enriched themselves during and after the war, and it inspired an extraordinary series of strikes and class struggles in the postwar decades.

In addition to a range of key texts and letters by both Lincoln and Marx, this book includes articles from the radical New York-based journal Woodhull and Claflin’s Weekly, an extract from Thomas Fortune’s classic work on racism Black and White, Frederick Engels on the progress of US labor in the 1880s, and Lucy Parson’s speech at the founding of the Industrial Workers of the World.

How Capitalism Works

Today, the economies of nations that are typically referred to as capitalist are in fact mixed economies -- they incorporate certain aspects of capitalism and certain aspects of planed economies. In pure capitalism, things like child labor laws, Social Security, anti-discriminatory hiring practices and a minimum wage have no place. Capitalism rejects all government intervention in economic matters.

I never called the USA pure textbook capitalism.

Your thoughts belong in a classroom where fools debate what never will be reality.

You don't understand that business runs our government and there is no finer example of capitalism then that.

Go back to your text books and dream of what could have been.

What good is offering proof to you people? All you do is discredit it because of the source instead of proving it wrong.

If you want to talk about brainwashing, find me one DumBama supporter that says he's doing a terrible job or that all his shortcomings are not Bush's or the Republicans fault. You won't. You are all programmed to respond that nothing is DumBama's fault and everything he does is sincere and good for the people of this country. Why was he reelected in spite of him doing a terrible job? Brainwashing.

By the way, the Bible calls Satan the Father of Lies, so you and your father have a place in hell together.
So, of course you’re both ignorant and so stupidly arrogant that you’d lie about what the Bible says:
Matthew 22:21 They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.
Before quoting the Holy Bible, why don't you find out what Jesus meant by that quote before looking ignorant? I'll give you a hint: He didn't mean to pay taxes.

What do the greedy have to do with the needy? Explain that one. God did call Satan the father of lies, but of course, that was before he created DumBama.

Why are there so many needy? Because people are used to living off of taxpayers. Or didn't you bother to read the link I provided about the so-called poor? People buy things and have families they can't afford. They do this while living paycheck to paycheck if they bother working at all. What do you think caused the housing collapse?

the US is based on a hybrid form of Socialism that US is under that doesn't follow true Socialism or Capitalism and in 1977 is when the Federal Changed and abandoned the Employment Act of 1946.

Employment Act of 1946

In brief, the Act:

- Explicitly states that the federal government will rely primarily on private enterprise to achieve the four goals.

- Instructs the government to take reasonable means to balance the budget.

- Instructs the government to establish a balance of trade, i.e., to avoid trade surpluses or deficits.

- Mandates the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve to establish a monetary policy that maintains long-run growth, minimizes inflation, and promotes price stability.

- Instructs the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve to transmit an Monetary Policy Report to the Congress twice a year outlining its monetary policy.

- Requires the President to set numerical goals for the economy of the next fiscal year in the Economic Report of the President and to suggest policies that will achieve these goals.

- Requires the Chairman of the Federal Reserve to connect the monetary policy with the Presidential economic policy.

Poor slob! Your momma drop you on your head as a baby? Read the 1860 Republican Platform, it was not about abolishing slavery, it was about the enactment of free home-stead, daily mail service, transcontinental railroad and a protective tariff. Nevertheless, opposition to African slave trade under the national flag was mentioned. Republicans never warmed up to civil rights as can clearly be seen today, as well as the nomination of Goldwater in 1964.
Yes, look at the 1860 Republican platform. http://cprr.org/Museum/Ephemera/Republican_Pl...

They pledge to not extend slavery. Do you know what that means? They pledge to disallow slavery to expand into new territories. The Democrats, particularly the Democrats of the South viewed slavery as a right.

Awww, poor, pathetic conservative murderer. You just can’t take it when somebody fires back. You’ve murdered about a million American citizens, over 100,000 Iraqis, etc. but OMG crying and complaining when somebody tells you off? You clearly just can’t stand it.
Now, here it comes, you, so arrogant and sanctimonious, coming up with one sick excuse after another, either about the numbers or the psychotic claims of your innocence -- that all you people do is just finance the murders, and vote for the leaders. And of course you’re just murdering people who deserve it because they‘re liberals, without any trial, of course, because they didn’t commit any crimes. They just happen to be in the way of conservative greed.
YOU are the haters because that’s what it takes to kill innocent people. I keep throwing it in your face, hoping people who CAN still be human beings will wise up.
As far as the gun issue, as usual, you skrrod that up too.

They SAID what they wanted, but feel free to treat them like idiots who are too confused to be able to know what they want.
Actually, they ARE idiots because they justified their demands for Social Security by self-righteously saying that it’s their money. They're so dumb they don't know how it works. Intelligent people laugh at them, but of course conservative idiots defend them, since they identify with them.
