    Many teachers and all of them paid from taxes, no less!

    I helped build those roads & bridges for a good portion of my life.

    You sure wouldn't have much of a business without the roads & bridges to allow people access to your door or your supplies to get those goods you sell to your loading dock!

    Undisclosed because none of the choices apply. My views on "gun control" probably make you a "Leftie" and my views on the military MIGHT classify you as one, too. You shouldn't judge until you know me a LOT better.

    Well I'm sure that if it weren't for the government we'd all be living in mud huts just like the Afghani's
    Since all human progress is dependent on the government now that we've got a regime that hasn't any qualms
    about reading our e-mails, using the IRS to staunch those evil tea partiers and has taken over healthcare
    we've just gotta be on a bright sunny path to ever increasing prosperity and utopian bliss!?!

    Now if that pesky economy would just get the message all would be right with the world eh?


    sorry mang that made no sense to me, "Very Conservative" was as close a selection as I could find for:
    freakin' right wing wacko doncha know?

    "My views on "gun control" probably make you a "Leftie"
    was that supposed to read: yer view is that you are a gun grabbin' Leftie
    or that because I'm a staunch Conservative and a life long gun toter I'm a bitter clinger?

    "and my views on the military MIGHT classify you as one, too"

    I thought cuz I'm a neo-con nutjob I wanted the military to march in kill their leaders
    and convert them all to Christianity? (even though I'm an Atheist).

    Cut me some slack, life is to short not to make snap judgements and get on with the business of being a PITA

    Antropologically speaking, that's almost the definition of "human progress".

    Reading mail was done long ago. The IRS didn't single anyone out of which I'm aware. Public healthcare is as important as public roads, given the cost to which health care has risen.

    The 1999 decision to mix the banks was the worst economic decision since the 1920's and both parties consented. Sometimes we have to re-learn the hard way because some people just can't believe the history books.

    Actually, I don't even own a gun, though I know how to use rifles and shotguns as any red blooded Midwesterner - especially those from Missouri - should.

    But my views on gun control are decidedly NOT leftist and most Right Wingers even think I'm a bit crazy on that subject.

    If you're an atheist you MUST be a Leftie. I'm pretty sure you still have to show your Certificate of Baptism to vote on the Republican ticket.

    Re: Is communism possible in the USA?

    Wow, I was really surprised to see so many participating in this forum did not think Communism was not a possibility in this country. Obviously many are not aware that Socialism is the stepping stone that leads to Communism. And by all counts with the current administration and the push for social justice and spread the wealth mentality (both stellar to any good Socialist) I'd have to say we are all Socialists now!

    Re: Is communism possible in the USA?

    I voted a straight Republican ticket every election starting in 1980 up until the last one (the one with Obama-lite) I didn't even bother to go.
    The Republicans are all a buncha RINOS now.
    It would take bullets not ballots to stop this headlong rush towards socialism that we are on now and most Americans
    are far too uninterested to care at this point.
    Public schools roads healthcare welfare food stamps and on and on and on
    yup sounds like bloody communism to me alright, socialised medicine was the final nail in the coffin
    this grand experiment went out not with a bang but a whimper
    now we can all enjoy the slow decline into the mediocrity of a western style of socialism
    but since I refuse to sign up for the state exchange I guess I'll never get that death panel ruling

    AngryOldGuy what I find quite puzzling is whether it is Socialism, Communism, or Fascism they all have one thing in common and that is they destroy FREEDOM yet the masses just don't seem to get it. Why in Sam Hill would anyone trust the Federal Government run by a group of elites regardless of party affiliation over Constitutional principles that allocate and protect liberty and freedom for all? But of course those in the camp leaning to Socialism, Communism and or Fascism have a problem with our Constitution to begin with.

    nah buddy they've got no problem at all
    they've thrown that dusty old document in the shredder and are well on their merry way towards
    remaking this place in the image of the totalitarian state it was always meant to be!

    Rock On Comrade !
