Nov 6, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Washington Post

We've been scouring the data for clues as to what we should learn from what happened tonight as President Obama relatively easily claimed a second term.

You make some sense, and are pointing in the right direction. But in most cases the owner didn't "build it" either. He had the concept, and secured the financing to get it of the ground. But in most cases it was his employees, that produced the product/services, and the customer(s) that bought them, that actually BUILT the business. Businesses do NOT "create jobs". They do the hiring, and organize the work, but consumer demand is what actually CREATES them.

Capitalism was a concept introduced by Marxist.
The first use of the word Kapitalist was in 1848 in the Communist Manifesto by Marx and Engels; however, "kapitalismus," the german word for "capitalism" was not used. The first use of the word capitalism is by novelist Thackeray in 1854, by which he meant ownership of a large amount of capital.
In 1867 Proudhon used the term capitalist to refer to owners of capital, and Marx and Engels refer to the "capitalist form of production" ("kapitalistische Produktionsform") and in Das Kapital to "Kapitalist", "capitalist" (meaning a private owner of capital). By the early 20th century the term had become widespread, as evidenced by Max Weber's use of the term in his The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism in 1904, and Werner Sombart's 1906 Modern Capitalism
alot of people dont realize that Capitalism is Marxist, which is why I laugh when someone uses the term Marxist or calls someone a Marxist. Karl Marxs spent 20 years writing the 4 volumes of Capitalism and is what he spent of his life on it wasnt communism or socialism but Capitalism and his writings are very detailed.

Indy,

MOST people know only what their ideologic leaders tell them. They lack the intellectual curiosity & ambition to seek their own knowledge, and understanding.

This forum is for fun and laughs. The participants from the right of who propose crazy notions and ideas on socialism and Marxist principles are as deep intellectually as an empty glass of water.

Capitalism was not a concept until the late 18th Century, but the Conservative Intellectuals who participate here who will swear the settlers from England motivate solely by their Capitalist endeavors.

Sure they do, what do you think the Farm Bill Spending supports?
subsidies aren't the same as welfare checks, actual money from the treasury. Farmers aren't exactly GE and Ford, are they? Do you ever eat anything?

Dems and repubs both support the farm bill. No one to blame except big government, which I'm against and you are for.

During Apartheid, we often stole the savings of minorities, Black, Asian, South Pacificans and Native Alaskans alike. That's the reason for the CRA.
No, not WE. If you're too stupid to balance a check book or take care of your financial affairs I don't care what happens to you. Funny, high school dropout drug dealers seem to manage their money ok.
Ever heard of a credit union? Is that where you bank? If not i guess you have chosen to support banks.

Bush was very caring to the poor, It was Bush who extend the Food Stamp spending through the 2002 and 2007 Farm Bill, where Food Stamp spending is allocated.
He paved the path and increased the rolls of those receiving Food Stamps to over 30 Milllion, double the 15 Million Obama is credited.
Only those who have no idea about how government works wouldn't know. The Farm Bill only comes out for negotiation every 5 years. The 2012 Bill hasn't been finalized just yet it's delayed in Congress. I expect it before the New Year, that corporate pork in the bill is needed by the Corporate Farm industry.


The misguided "compassionate conservatism" of Bush I mentioned.

Regardless, you implied we give billions to large corporations, clearly untrue.

Many phony farmers in the ranks of Obama's celebrity supporters likely will be part of the "corporate pork" you mention.

What you and your ilk never address is the estimated $500 billion on all government levels which is GIVEN to the "poor" yearly , I say enough is enough. Like Obamaphones given to grossly overweight BMW drivers.

A CEO did not build a company. A owner did. I think the pay a worker gets should be balanced as to what a CEO gets. I think a worker should make no less then 10 times less then the CEO...NOT THE OWNER...I am talking a paid employee.
My opinion is that a if a worker makes 35k a year the CEO should make no more then ten times more.....NOW THE OWNER CAN MAKE AS MUCH AS HE WANTS.......Two different things.
right after you take your remedial spelling course, start your own co. and pay lavishly.

Exactly, Most People know only what their Ideologics leader & Government tell them and want them to know even J.D. Rockefeller Sr. felt even that why and was one of very first true Capitalist the US ever seen and why and Frederick T. Gates got involved into public education with the General Education Board in 1902 and it was to dumb down Society which it did and was the goal.

"The purpose of the Foundation (the General Education Board) was to use the power of money, not to raise the level of education in America, as was widely believed at the time, but to influence the direction of that education... The object was to use the classroom to teach attitudes that encourage people to be passive and submissive to their rulers. The goal was-and is-to create citizens who were educated enough for productive work under supervision but not enough to question authority or seek to rise above their class. True education was to be restricted to the sons and daughters of the elite. For the rest, it would be better to productive skilled workers with no particular aspirations other than to enjoy life." -G. Edward Griffin in The Creature from Jekyll Island

irrelevant, doesn't matter what it was called, it was system practiced for centuries.

cap·i·tal·ism
noun \&#712;ka-p&#601;-t &#601;-&#716;liz-& #601;m, &#712;kap-t&#601;-, British also k&#601;-&#712;pi-t &#601;-\
Definition of CAPITALISM
: an economic system characterized by private or corporate ownership of capital goods, by investments that are determined by private decision, and by prices, production, and the distribution of goods that are determined mainly by competition in a free market

Clearly the "concept" was around long before Marx, one of the biggest idiots to ever pick up a pen and put it to paper. A complete and total faliure when it came to ideas.

The funny thing is, our once mortal enemy can see through the haze of American politics, and the true reasons why this country is coming apart at the seams, and finally failing the dream our founders had envisioned.

Why would you accept the theory of trying to make someone else rich instead of focusing on competing and becoming independent and free yourself?

You been indoctrinated.

You should just turn in your social security card
I become rich by helping the company become rich!!!

Liberals want the rich to become poor, conservatives want the poor to become rich.

It is that simple!!

Liberals hate success, want fairness!!!

Conservative KNOW there is no fairness in the world and want everyone to be free and rich!!!
