    I went on there but keep running into a problem with first the last. The first seems to believe in collective resources and so does the last. They also appear to believe in a mixed economy which is a socialist idea and they believe in welfare socialism and many of them believe in naturalizing industries of their choosing(education, healthcare, housing, etc).

    Tremble, my bourgeoisie friend. Tremble.

    I'm all for cooperation. Just not me cooperating in you stealing the fruits of the labor of others.

    Our country is built first and foremost on rugged individualism. Not some lame version of "Kumbaya".

    For ****s sake, we're talking about people believing in a specific political philosophy, and some of you don't have a clue what that philosophy actually is.
    Means of production. Cooperation on a massive scale and we all be as rich as the Romney's. Got it.

    That's the thing with bigotry -- it feeds on itself. There is no real-world subject of your irrational hate and fear. Rather, you hate a caricature that exists only in your mind. You hate the nameless, faceless "communist."

    And here's the thing. Because the communist has no face and no name, because he is only an idea you've conjured, you can conjure him again and again at will. You can see him wherever you choose.

By the way do you deny Bernie Sanders and Maxine Waters who where on that list are socialists???...self admitted ones. So that proves right there that PolitiFact isn't always right.
    If it sounds like Marx and acts like Stalin...it must be Obama

    For a bit of education, every single one of the government you're thinking of were, and claimed to be, socialist, not communist. I understand this may confuse you, as I know you equate these two political theories, but to an educated mind there's a vast difference. So I suggest you pick up a ****ing dictionary and perhaps browse for a while on Wikipedia so you can figure out history, and the difference between socialism, communism, and modern liberalism.
    Communism is total bull**** any way you look at it, and Marx was a ****ing loon who wouldn't have known the ****ing first thing about making it work. Now I've heard enough from the ****ing left about what the ****ing definiton of ****ing communism is.
