Liberalism" is a disguise for Socialism

“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.” - Norman Thomas, six-time U.S. Presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America. Congratulations, comrades.

IF we could teach sociology in grade school we might see the tide turn. How do you treat your father, mother, the girl next door, friends AND enemies? What is socially acceoptable? What constitutes disrespect in public? This action, alone, has a tremendous possibility of preventing many from becoming criminals and negating the need to build more prisons. Today, many expect it is the parents duty to teach respect. How many meth druggies or drunks are responsible enough to teach their children, well? It is the governments DUTY to educate, not indoctrinate. Why does West Virginia require students to memorize eachcounty in the state, but not require a test on the constitution, Bill of Rights and amendments? No student should graduate without knowing the basis for our government OR the basis for respect of others. Instead of attacking individuals, attack the problems with positive recommendations each time a problem is brought to light. Seems like a brilliant officer by the name of

Ithink: as a military combat veteran I still have the right to vote and I have the right Not to vote. Neither circumvents my rights to offer constructive critisism. Please, remember I have the right not to like any candidate the republicans or democrats offer. Heck, I voted twice for Ross Perot and he only ran once! I reserve that right, also. Rember what he said about NAFTA? "if it passes there will be a giant sucking sound of jobs leaving America." Who'd uh thunk it?

Surprisingly tenth grade American History class did cover quite a bit of the early documents. At least at PSHS.

Does West Virginia require students to pass a test on the Constitution? Don't think so! Pity!

… is a "sacred, God-given right"…. …"racial entitlement"!...

I would recommend you study the two and what our founding fathers stated Neil. If you do, you will see that during the Philadelphia Convention, Madison, and company argued against a Bill of Rights. They believed such rights did not need to be granted by government because they were inalienable rights granted by the creator. That’s why it took NY demanding a Bill of Rights before the FF promised one. The second of those inalienable rights was the right to keep and bear arms.

The right to vote on the other hand was never guaranteed. In fact, when Thomas Paine tried to vote in 1806, he was denied despite the fact he was a founding father. While subsequent Amendments have ensured that voting cannot be denied due to race, religion, ability to pay a tax or gender but nothing guarantees the right to vote. As was the case in the 18th Century the voting right is still left to individual states.

Raising the minimum wage wont do a darn thing. Everyone here knows that when it goes up the prices for everything else follows.

And for people like me if it does go to 9 and there is no adjustment made to my hourly pay rate its essentially making me have less take home pay.

I have experienced several adjustments in the past and I hope I will be lucky and see it happen again if the minimum wage goes up.

I wish there was a viable party to get the current crop of losers in the government out of our hair. But alas the only real opposition decided to lobotomize itself.

You're on the right track, Ithink.

Consider what Isiah said:"For the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hidden."

I confess that I was guilty of thinking myself wise. Thanks for pointing it out.

Harry, Confucious says too much display of wiseness is dumbness. :)

I believe I'll wait until later to decide whether or not anyone lies tonight.

I like to refrain from commenting from an uninformed standpoint. The book of Proverbs says, "He who answers a matter before he hears it, it is folly and shame to him."

I hope it promoted the outdated process of thinking, mythy.

I vote, and l have the right to comment. People who don't vote should keep quiet.

A good plan for tonight is ro warch a good Michigan basketball game. We can all read the lies later.

Liberalism is the super highway that ends with socialism.

Hypocrite: a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings.

What did that comment promote Ithink?

Division perhaps?

Liberalism is the super highway that ends with socialism. We have a constitution to prevent that. Too bad we have a president that does not love, honor, and respect that.

He is a black man who is the most powerful man in the world. But he continues to promote victimization and division. A sad time for America

Thats where I feel the education system needs to be overhauled with civics classes that instill that in kids.

But the overhauling of the education system is a very complex subject.

Certain areas in this country tend to produce a lot of dependent people who have little to no education.

Harry I know that you weren't advocating Calhoun's position. I just like to hear other peoples take on topics like that.

Bolo there is more than one type of taker. Both sides have them. And both can be a detriment to this nation.

But as for the takers you refer to I can agree that too many of them is bad. But if you want to shift the people in this country away from that you have to deliver the message in manner that doesn't cut people down.

If you attack a person's worth they wont listen.

People should be empowered to better themselves for their own good and this nations good.

You do that by making it so that people that really need assistance can get it. But you also need the system set up so that those who dont need it dont receive it.

The hard part is instilling personal responsibility in each person to go out and better themselves for the reasons I already mentioned. And if someone wont do that then they cant be helped.

Bolo did you see the video that was making the rounds showing the Native American calling illegal immigration protesters the real illegals.

Sorry but given my families origins I cant say much on illegal immigration. Open borders allowed this country to be founded. If you are Caucasian who's bloodline goes back a long time then you most certainly came here uninvited.

“What is the point of the federal government if the states can do as they wish?”

Read Calhoun’s words. He didn’t say that states could do as they wish. Again, I quote, “…in case of a deliberate, palpable, and dangerous exercise of power not delegated,…” Calhoun clearly intended to limit the states’ rights to what he called “interposition,” and what fellow South Carolinians Strom Thurmond and Jesse Helms later called “states’ rights.”

Let’s get to the real question we need to settle: what Federal acts can be construed as “deliberate, palpable, and dangerous”?

Incidentally, I wasn’t advocating Calhoun’s viewpoint. I meant only to point out that his arguments predate and are far superior to Ayn Rand’s.
