    I don't know and you do? Thats hilarious, you don't know who I am or what my real name is, yet you know all about me. Does your Chrystal ball tell you I grew up in a Republican family?

    My point is that there is nothing new with leftism. Frankly, the left is better at tearing things down than doing anything substantive.

    Where did I quote any of his books?

    One need only look at the tactics employed by lefties, and the inspiration they themselves cite. Its not hard.

    In this thread I was mistaken. I should have corrected that and said, "referenced."

    Kobie, read some Alinsky and Orwell when you aren't at the factory. It will be elucidating.

    Its obvious, lefties have an inability to comprehend how they appear to non-lefties. The libertarians see it too.

    I doubt it. And, for the record, what you read in high school while still good, isn't quite as substantive as in college. Just something to consider.
