    Is "anti-colonialism" a criticism now? Really? Are there still pro-colonialism people around?

    If 1% is the uber rich, what about intellectuals and otherwise somewhat rational people who have power at least on paper.

    I voted all of them for the lulz. srs bsns.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    He's a Capitalist. Anyone who says he's a full-blown Socialist doesn't know what Socialism is.

    Re: Which System best fits Barack Obama?

    I would say he is a combination of moderate Democratic policies, basic pragmatism, too much timidity for his own good, and a unhealthy does of wanting to keep Wall Street happy.

    That results in mediocrity.

    I thought Jimmy Kimmell summed it up best in his joke about the location of the White House Press dinner. He said that the White House wanted it at a certain hotel while the GOP wanted it at the Hilton. So they compromised and its at the Hilton.

    I think that is perfect.

    Democracy that protects human, civil, minority, labor, environmental, economic, political, religious and other rights (of liberty), at least in some kind of constitution/infrastructure/actuality. And justice.

    I added, 'and justice'. While life is never perfect or what we want it to be, I can see trying and not.
