    And I believe youre making excuses, trying to blame anyone but yourself for the state of the country.

    Democratically elected reps have force, corporations have force, and we also have force... To say the corporations dont have power in politics is completely ignorant.

    Yet its true. Power is invested in representatives, who can be removed at any time by voters. Corporations can only attempt to influence voters or govt, same as voters can attempt to influence govt. In the end a individual person has to cast a vote, not a corporation. Which is why I don't blame govt for heading towards socialism. I blame voters. Socialism is what they want. And liberals in particular. They are the ones who pushed for more power to the govt over our daily lives.

    What world do you live in? Who bankrolls politicians? Who donates and runs the campaigns? SUPER PACS... Who are Super PACS ran by mostly? Corporations. But you talk about personhood a lot here. But remember corporations are people now too ya know...

    American liberals aren't socialists and they could barely ever pass as social democrats

    Supposedly somehow in fantasy land amongst the right we are turning into a "socialist" country, then apparently we are going to become a stateless, classless society... This people are ****ing insane. [/FONT][/COLOR]
    Of course the left will now attack him. I guess that's because of all the examples of Obama expanding personal freedom and fighting against government taking rights and control from the individual.

    Speaks to his character

    Not that I'd really care about any republican's opinion, let alone your average american's opinion on what makes a country socialist/communist anyway
