    that is a stupid comment because for that to be true, you'd have to prove without the 2A there would be no murders. and we have seen countries like Mexico and Columbia have far more murders per capita and they don't have a second amendment

    I don't really care what people call themselves. Actions speak far louder than words. Stalin was no communist. He was as dictator, one of the worst of all time. Mao wasn't much better. Doesn't matter if they forced "communist" policies. Communism isn't about force. Dictatorships are.

    Absolutely correct. Real communism on a national scale isn't possible. Communists who believe it can are living in a dream world. People will always want more... and people wanting more helps things progress.

    Yes, I've seen that sort of communism apologism before. "Every time communism has failed, it wasn't true communism." I suppose it's never been the case that the ideology itself is unrealistic since it goes against human nature and that's why it fails. Naw, if we did communism here, I'm sure we'd do it right.

    Stalin was the consequence of Lenin's philosophy that was heavily influenced by Marxism.

    That is not to say I wouldn't be armed though.


    So, Henrin, what exactly are you saying? That you have more courage than the average person? Or the average woman?

    When documents and concepts start brandishing weapons and killing people? I always thought it was primarily people who killed people.
