    That's just it....There aren't any that I know of.

    Oh please, an old spin on the ever tired "not all liberals think the same" but yet when progressive liberals like you speak of conservatives you do exactly what you condemn here. So spare us all...
    Once again, you treat your subject as a collective. But you're arguing with me, not with "liberals." I'm sure at some point I've decried "conservatives" -- we all make logical leaps and such on occasion -- so I encourage you to provide evidence for your accusation.

    Semantic? Nah....I believe it is more dead on accurate assessment.

    This has become one of the most unintelligent threads ever.

    Since this is the only thing in your post worth any type of response at all, I'll respond with another question of you. What is about communism that you admire?

    You miss my point, but I'll answer your question:

    I'm not a communist. I don't admire communism. I don't believe communism is practical or reasonable for a large society. But some of the ideals of communism are not without merit: that all who contribute deserve a share, that all people are created equal, that cooperation can be a force for good, etc.

    Your turn.

    Deserve a share? What does that even mean?

    Of the spoils of any endeavor to which they contribute. It's a basic concept of fairness: If you help plant the fields, you get a seat at the dinner table.

    You are speaking in metaphor. Be clear so that there is no confusion please.
