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.

One can effect social change best by improving his or her own social behavior.

It comes down to being able to cause change that is effective. I cant as an individual make any difference in a way I feel is going to cause meaningful change. It will take a large amount of the populace to make that difference.

Also have you guys not read what I have been writing. You are still acting as if I am a died in the wool Obama supporter. That couldn't be further from the truth.

I dont like him as president. He's owned no differently than Bush was when he was in office by corporate America.

But I'm not going to go out of my way and make wild rabid attacks on Obama. Or as I like to call him "the product".

In case you have forgot though and this is why I focus on the right a lot. Bush and his cronies lied us into a ruinous war. And no one from Bush's era has been scrutinized with the level of vitriol that Obama has.

I ask myself this. If another 9-11 happened on Obama's term how would the rightwing react to it.

Well they most certainly would call for Obama's head!

No one in Bush's regime was brought to task for the failures that allowed 9-11 to happen. But yet look at the response to Benghazi from people on the right.

Extreme outrage.

The saying that if you dont stand for something you fall for anything is a convenient axiom that doesn't apply to my thinking at all.

I don't believe in the lesser of two evils. I haven't voted because I haven't found anyone worthy of voting for.

Our system and its politicians are a joke.

That is the problem with this country. I can not vote for either party because they honestly can't get the job done properly.

Bolo how did you come to the conclusion it was a "leftist" scholar that came up with those 14 points.

The reason I ask that is because a lot of people on the right have a tendency to put the "leftist" stamp on anyone that doesn't think like they do.

For R1KRA8,

"Atlas Shrugged" could very well be the prophetic novel of our age. Unfortunately, I doubt that the majority of posters on this web site have read the book.

When the producers are outnumbered by the takers tumultuous and cataclysmic events will occur. Maybe not this year or the near following years. But it can and I believe will occur.

If you have not read "Atlas Shrugged" or "Anthem" by Ayn Rand do so with out prejudice post haste!

Mythravere,

Hitler's socialism was called and known as the "National Socialists." True right-wing extremism leads to anarchy.

Obama has exhibited more fascist tendencies than democratic or far right wing that many has wrongly labeled as fascist.

Please study and learn this.

To what revisionist history, tinfoilhat, do you allude?

Go look up the 14 points of Fascism that all Fascist dictatorships contained within their ideology. Somehow the rightwing manages to exhibit positions that hit upon each and every one of them.

"People decry Obama bring socialism into our country but those people fail to realize that other half is fascist in its tendencies."

Fascism is extreme socialism.

The thing is Bolo is that I do see it unfolding before my eyes. Asides from the few differences that "colored" their policies like social causes. There is very little difference between Bush and Obama.

Both parties are bought and paid for by corporate America.

Thats why being a card carrying member of either party nullifies your voice on the direction of this country.

Thats why I haven't voted not one time. Its just an illusion that your vote makes any difference.

People decry Obama bring socialism into our country but those people fail to realize that other half is fascist in its tendencies.

This country will continue to rot away until people see the wool is being pulled down over their eyes and the people purge our government of everyone that plays the us versus them game. Doing that will mean gutting both political parties.

Another thing to think about is this and its so simple.

Does the concept of our nation match the reality?

The concept is great but if you align yourself with any political party and defend it as if its the only true path then you support fully and without question the current dysfunctional paradigm that is driving this nation into the drink.

I actually hope you think about what I just wrote instead of allowing your animalistic defensive reflex to take over.

You are either as free as an eagle or as enslaved as livestock.

You know if an entity was wanting to destroy a country without using weapons of war a good way to accomplish that would be to destroy it from within. Destroy it by setting the citizens against each other.

A divided people can not focus on real issues. They can not function as a untied people should.

They would act just like all the posters before me. Everyone of you are part of the problem!

But its addictive isn't it. Its like participating in a sport. YOUR team has to win. All the while others are ripping the foundations of your house right out from underneath you!

And you guys democrats and republicans. Nary a glance or thought about the implications of your sheep like tendencies.

Lead by the nose straight to the cliff!

Its foolish to go around acting as if one wing of the political spectrum is responsible for absolutely every single thing wrong with this country.

Hypocrisy abounds on both sides. So many on the right decry Obama's overreaching policies that are supposedly damaging this country yet I succinctly remember hardly no one on the right making mention of the massive changes and overreach put forth during the Bush years.

Catering to hyper-partisanship tendencies is the one of the things that is hurting this country.

Tinfoil you talk of liberal programming but what of conservative programming? The kind that is detrimental to true freedom being expressed in all facets of our nations social sphere?

Bolo, are you saying we should accept the vote of the majority only if and when it pleases us ?

Well, tiredofit, when does the democratic process lose its legitimacy?
