It is actually easy to know what the left believes. It believes very little. But is sure does feel. Socialism is a very bad thing even if one has not read everything Radical Karl ever wrote. It is antithetical to freedom. It inevitably must lead to tyranny--first soft. Then harder. If you are on the left you are in the wrong. History is on your side though. For the most part human history has been that of the brute and tyrant lording over the masses. The funny part is how many on the left believe they should be the lords.
Conservatives want constitutionally limited governments that are no bigger that they must be to fulfill their Constitutional obligations. I might have missed the word "corporation" in the Constitution. Would you please show me where it is found and give me some of the context?
If your beliefs contain the seeds of destruction for the system you live within, the system that has provided greater wealth for more people than any other every devised, including socialism, why shouldn't you carry the label of socialist, Marxist, or Communist? And for that matter why not traitor?
