    Insane is also defined as doing the same thing over and over expecting different results. By that definition, all socialist are provable to be insane.
    OK - off topic, but would you say the Scandinavian nations are insane?

    "Cannon claimed too many militias were in a defensive mode and in order to get them out of the defensive posture, actions would have to take place to force martial law to be declared," the agent's statement said. Cannon also said he wanted to recruit militia members from other parts of the country to join these missions.

    Just for the sake of argument, what if they were say agnostic libertarians who support free markets and free sex. Would that make them right wing or left wing?

    LOL, so you can't point to what I asked you because you made it up...And to answer your question, yes I have heard of Left wing militia's in America....Surely you've heard of the New Black Panthers?

    Are they actually socialist? Do they not participate in a global market economy? Would they be able to sustain themselves at their current standard of living and technology without the influx of money and technology from that market economy? If their population expands beyond the income that their sale of a natural resource brings in, would the be sustainable?

    I'm still waiting on any sort of wager from you.....or are you locked into a "they are NOT right wing"?

    If so, when I or anyone else show they are in fact right wing....what will you do?

    No I don't cherry pick or maybe I do with your understanding of this language we each use for communication.

    The statement I answered by posting the RCP link had specifically said the President's approval numbers were lower than those of Pinochet. The poster didn't say the "same as"
