I guess it all has to do with one's point of view and where they live. Colonials living in America, wanting freedom from a tyrant living the other side of the pond, might well be called patriots. They are fighting for the land where they live and for independence.  (48 min ago | post #1210636)

so what about the private sector, do they earn their pensions. Does a CEO who is with a company for a couple of years runs it into the ground and then gets a golden parachute earn his pension? Most gov't workers are middle class hard working people, who the freak are you to decide who earns it and who doesn't. They signed a contract and worked to earn that pension  (1 hr ago | post #1210617)

I see you're mathematically challenged. WWII deaths 55 Million which is close to the upper estimate of those killed by Chairman Mao. so if we take the averages of Stalin (20 million) and Mao (50 million) that is 70 million over how many years. WWII lasted approximately 6 years and killed 55 million, That's a 15 million difference and its only one warPretty good for a dead guy, Uncle Ho died in 1969 at the height of Vietnam's war of independence. The Vietnam war killed 3 million. so now we are down to 12 million on the communist side. and just where did you come up with this 3.2 million figure. Oh wait, that number includes decades of war first with the French, then the United States in Vietnam's fight for independence. so that number goes to the war side. "It is mixed in with six wars spanning 43 years (the Indochina War, Vietnam War, Cambodian War, subsequent guerrilla war in Cambodia, guerrilla war in Laos, and Sino-Vietnamese War), one of them involving the United States; a near twenty-one year formal division of the country into two sovereign North and South parts; the full communization of the North; occupation of neighboring countries by both North and South; defeat, absorption, and communization of the South; and the massive flight by sea of Vietnamese. As best as I can determine, through all this close to 3,800,000 Vietnamese lost their lives from political violence, or near one out of every ten men, women, and children.1 Of these, about 1,250,000, or near a third of those killed, were murdered. " https://www.hawaii .edu/powerkills/SO D.CHAP6.HTMwe are comparing communism, not other totalitarian gov'ts. stop moving the goal posts and that's only recently, now lets go to the thousands of years mankind has existed and the number of people killed in wars  (1 hr ago | post #1210585)

so what, that is part of their employment package. They work, earn a wage and get benefits just like those employed in the private sector. Are you saying they shouldn't get a pension because they work for the gov't providing services to Americans. Do you feel the same way about Police and firemen. Their pensions are paid for by the taxpayer, and they are eligible for a pension after 20 years service. what about members of congress? they get a pension after one term, and a very nice one at that.  (1 hr ago | post #1210569)

So I see you're making up your own definitions again. The left, which you idiots are always calling "Libtards " for liberals are the people who revolted against monarchies, which is how Europe was ruled at the time. The "LIBERAL " idea of a democracy, where the common man elected representatives to government was a new idea. Conservatives would be those that opposed change and backed the King of England. They were called tories. Here's some English definitions for you con∑serv∑a∑tive adjective adjective: conservative 1. holding to traditional attitudes and values and cautious about change or innovation, typically in relation to politics or religion. synonyms: traditionalist, traditional, conventional, orthodox, old-fashioned, dyed-in-the-wool, hidebound, unadventurous, set in one's ways; More of or relating to the Conservative Party of Great Britain or a similar party in another country. adjective: Conservative synonyms: right-wing, reactionary, traditionalist; More Republican; Tory; informal redneck "the conservative wing of the party" noun: conservative; plural noun: conservatives 1. a person who is averse to change and holds to traditional values and attitudes, typically in relation to politics. synonyms: right-winger, reactionary, rightist, diehard; More  (2 hrs ago | post #1210530)

forming a political party and participating in elections is not a form of treason. Communist party members who try to win elections have every right to vote. That is what democracy is all about. Even political parties whose ideology you don't agree with have the same right you do. So youíve asked Democrats which is worse Communism or war. Well considering youíre comparing two unlike things, communism a political ideology and war, a state of affairs I can understand people being perplexed. Perhaps if you were to compare similar things, like say a Corporatocracy to communism. Or War and Peace. But letís go on with your claim that communism, which has only been around in recent history, has killed more people than war, something that has been around since the beginning of mankind. Really dude, think about that? But letís confine ourselves to the late 19th century through present. Here are some totals from wars in those times. 1911: Chinese Revolution (2.4 million) 1915: the Ottoman empire slaughters Armenians (1.2 million) 1914-18: World War I (20 million) 1928-37: Chinese civil war (2 million) 1931: Japanese Manchurian War (1.1 million) 1936-39: Spanish civil war (600,000) 1937-45: Japanese invasion of China (500,000) 1939-45: World War II (55 million) 1946-54: France-Vietnam war (600,000) 1947: Partition of India and Pakistan (1 million) 1950-53: Korean war (3 million) 1964-73: USA-Vietnam war (3 million) 1967-70: Nigeria-Biafra civil war (800,000) 1974-91: Ethiopian civil war (1,000,000) 1975-78: Menghitsu, Ethiopia (1.5 million) 1976-93: Mozambique's civil war (900,000) 1976-98: Indonesia-East Timor civil war (600,000) 1983-2002: Sudanese civil war (2 million) 1988-2001: Afghanistan civil war (400,000) 1988-2004: Somalia's civil war (550,000) 1994: Rwanda's civil war (900,000) Of course, Iím only getting death tolls from the highlites, there are plenty of small wars that took hundreds of thousands of lives not listed here. BTW, did you ever figure out what the Soviet mission statement was in their Afghanistan war??  (2 hrs ago | post #1210522)

I see you're not playing with a full deck, in fact your deck only contains two cards and they're both jokers. Whether you like it or not, the communist party is a legal party ere in the states. One of the things that comes with CONSTITUTIONAL FREEDOMS is the freedom to associate with others of like political leanings. If you can outlaw one political party, you can outlaw all. But that is besides the point, pray tell, please tell me which elected Democrat Politicians were communists? Which elected Democrat politicians supported Islamic terrorists? When and how? Maybe you should get yourself checked out by a head shrink, you seem to be suffering from paranoia. OR YOU ALREADY HAVE AND YOU'RE OFF YOUR MEDICATION. You're obviously an example of the consequences of what happens when you kick people out of mental wards and stop funding them, like Reagan did in the 80's  (4 hrs ago | post #1210499)

like the arrest of Joseph Padilla, or the round up of thousands of Muslim Americans after 9/11, their illegal detention and interrogation? or the policy of Extra ordinary rendition or the approval of the use of torture on prisoners Just to let you know, I object to President Obama continuing the use of wiretaps and reading of emails of Americans  (19 hrs ago | post #1210248)

it could be worse, we could get a horse judge to run FEMA or an academic to run the NSA or a complete buffoon like Rumsfeld to run the DoD. a Puppet to run the oval office and a puppet master who was too chicken to serve his country in time of war to be the puppet master  (20 hrs ago | post #1210212)

geesh, you really are either reading comprehension impaired, just plain stupid or just ignore what someone says and put you own thoughts in place of them. I never said I would do what the soviets did in Afghanistan. Do you even know what their mission was??? go ahead and answer that, and then we can proceed, I'll give you time to google it, as I'm sure you don't have a clue. Everyone knows from how fast we overran the country that Saddam military was a paper tiger. However, that's not to say he didn't plan. He suckered George W Bush and Rumsfeld into Iraq, allowing the armor to proceed, then started hitting the "soft" targets-the supply lines. He also planned for a guerrilla warfare, the insurgency. which is much cheaper to run and finance than a conventional army. I'll be waiting, what was the soviet mission in Afghanistan?  (20 hrs ago | post #1210211)
