    It's still a totalitarian government that doesn't give a damn about personal freedom.

    Unless it benefits them. That, is the key.

    You see, their markets are..."mostly" free, due to government edict. So they still control it, they just don't "boss the entreprenuers" around as much.

    If they want to command the economy again, they will do it by another simple government edict.

    Glen was referring to having a long term plan (50 years, and 100 year plans) and NOTHING more..

    If you folks would quit listening to those that envy his ratings and honesty (don't worry libs that's not something you'd understand or recognize if you saw it!) and actually watch for yourself you wouldn't appear nearly as ignorant!

    From all available evidence, it appears that ignorance is required to watch/listen to that nutcase.

    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Ol' Glenn's thinking is pretty well inscrutable already.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Right, because Glenn Beck wants a totalitarian government, he says so on his show everyday.

    Unfortunately, that position is essentially undemocratic, since it requires keeping the same ideology (and the correct one) in place for decades. China can only accomplish this because it is a one-party state. Unless he's quite naive, that makes Beck's position rather dangerous.

    It's also disingenuous, since he really means we need to stick to HIS ideas and solutions for an extended period. Does he really want those opposed to him to get power without interference for that long? There are all sorts of problems that beg for fifty year plans: climate change, nuclear proliferation, the Cleveland Browns. Good luck getting everyone to make a decision and then stick with it against all opposition for two generations. You need something more totalitarian for that.

    Like I said and you just confirmed, you have never watched.. rendering your response not only childish but quite asinine and irrelevant.... exposing YOUR ignorance not mine!
