    The use of fortified settlements and the bands of settlers working together for both protection and building is well documented. You have heard of barn raising parties, communal harvests, building irrigation systems that benefit more than a so-called rugged individual.

    Like I said, many 'conservatives' attempt to rewrite the actual history to some self serving myth...
    All that, and they also divided up the available land in very 'un-capitalist' fashion as well.

    Funny how it is when I do it, but the person who did it that I copied wasn't. I love selective outrage, it is so telling. The fact that the point(which is to show how stupid that type of comment is) went over your head makes it even better.

    The conservatives claiming that these people are socialist or communist have proven to not know the meaning of the word.

    You feel qualified to speak for Allen West?

    I called no one names and you didn't copy and paste it from me, so I have no idea what you are talking about.

So "rugged individualism" is correct, in the sense that individuals are entrusted to make choices for themselves by a doctrine that respects such diversity. it does not mean that we are or should be free of obligation or "force."
    Yes, our founders knew how to do it the right way. They were absolutely brilliant. We should go back the their laws where only landowners could vote.

    I will slow this down for you, but this is another example of why you should read the thread before commenting. Read the following quote and note the bolded part:

    Quote Originally Posted by Hicup View Post

Communist don't/can't come out into the open in a free society, they must work hard and over a long period of time to influence policy and direction. They've been embedding themselves into the very fabric of our society for decades, influenciung our media, and our children in our educational institutions. Is it one coordinated effort? Nope, probably not, but there are many of them with the same goals, even if how and why they go about achieving them is different the goal is the same insane notion that a central authority is smart enough and uncorruptable enough to make decisions for all of us..

    Anyone that denies this is insane or simply a dolt! Besides, West was correct at least in part about the car carrying aspect since it is well nown that Obama himself hired communists, and congressional leaders have been seen leaving communist party of America locations.. I think Water from O'Reilly had them on camera running away from the cameras.. LOL

    Communism can't flourish in a free society, they must manufacture unrest and then offer a solution to resolve it. It's how's it's done. My God anyone NOT know this?


    Tim-
    Now here is my reply:



    Quote Originally Posted by Redress View Post

    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.

    Notice something? We call this an illustrative example. No go read the above and note the underlined part. That is saying I was showing an example of his style. Got it now?
