    Marx wasn't an idiot though. He knew full well he could not defend the nonsense he was going on about and that it was in his interest to always focus on the enemy when questioned about his ideas. This debate tactic of his is not only his number one tool but his only tool. Don't defend, but reflect. If you haven't noticed this tactic is used readily by socialist and communist today. The whole point is that they want people to accept, but not to question. They don't want dialogue open to explore the ideas.

    Again, what we have here is some one makes a claim. It fails on the facts(this means it is untrue). Instead of admitting it was untrue, people keep on arguing it must be true because we want to believe it is, and facts be damned. We don't need facts or reality, we just want to smear people we disagree with.
    So you're calling me a dolt or insane?

    Our country is built first and foremost on rugged individualism. Not some lame version of "Kumbaya".
    We are a representative democracy, which fosters wide participation in public government. The entire point of the system is to facilitate diversity -- to prevent the political domination of one class over another. In fact, that is the very nature of individulalism. Without diversity, you can't have individualism. Without cooperation, you can't have individualism. The idea that everyone should share the same values is the exact antithesis of "freedom" and "rugged individualism."

    Naive or willfully ignorant would be more accurate terms.

    Holy ****, they are not the same. Now, since you are going to jump on the economic justice as some sort of code term, let's look at what they say about that:

    Congressional Progressive Caucus : The Progressive Promise



    Holy ****, they are talking about capitalism! See, this is why you should look things up for yourself, it will save a whole **** ton of embarrassment.
    Yes, we can believe them just like Ubama and congress who took an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution and they haven't done that either.

If you want to be actually aware instead of merely claiming awareness, and usually superiority, you ought to listen to talk radio.
