    Well it could be Democratic Socialist which supports heavily regulated capitalism.

    Just because you want to pretend that their brand of socialism is so different from your brand of socialism that they can't possibly be socialists doesn't make it true.

    You want to pretend your evil religion isn't responsible for the deaths of over a hundred million people just as today's Christians want to pretend that the practice of Christianity isn't responsible for the deaths of hundreds of millions over the millenia.

    You're both wrong.
    It is simply not socialism.You need to read up. I say again that you are speaking from the American myth of what socialism is. The myth is not truth because one says it is. It is myth.

    The lies and distortions that Americans believe to be socialism and communism are enough to fill a 1000 barrels with.

    Nothing mysterious about it.

    People like making money. Therefore if they do more than work for wages they have to hire other people to work for them to make the money. In case you're wondering, the evil capitalist is creating what is called "jobs". They're his jobs, not the workers', because a job is a task someone is willing to pay someone else to do. Because those people have jobs, they have money. When people have money it burns a hole in their pocket and they decide they want things like indoor plumbing and new clothes, and a maybe a car or a computer, and because they're buying these things, some other capitalist can make money, too, and create "jobs" themselves. Nothing "invisible" about this process. Also, when people are flush with money, they begin to feel sorry for the lazy or useless people who can't find jobs, and thus is charity born. Nothing "invisible" about this process, either, not in capitalist countries.

    I understand socialists are tight bastards who demand the government fund socialist programs instead of creating and funding their own charities for their feelings of guilt.

    No.

    You need to wake up.

    EVERY SINGLE ONE of those monsters either rose to power promising utopia for their supporters or took power from others who made those promises.

    Every one.

    Like I told you, just because your version of Christianity is the one you most devoutly believe in doesn't mean it's the right one, and it doesn't mean it's the only one.

    You do know that there's only one person who was truly Christian, don't you? And they nailed him to a tree.

    Oh, the socialists have used far far more than a thousand gun barrrels to gain power.

    Re: Revolution?

    The U.S. was founded on the ideals that all men are created equal, endowed by there creator with certain unalienable rights that among these are Life, Liberty, and pursuit of happieness. These ideals are at my very soul and the soul of every other REAL American.

    Socialism is the Government redistribution of wealth to create a classless society, and government ownership and/or administration of business to controll the production off goods and there by indirectly or directly controling the consumption of goods.

    With my ideals I can buy all the potatos I could possibly want if that is what makes me happy. In a socialist society I can only buy what I am allowed by the government.

    With my ideals, the money and articles that I work hard for in life to provide a future for my children are safe. In a socialist society all the things I have worked so hard for are taken when I die and redistributed to the lazy masses.

    The ideals enshrined in the Declaration of Independence (i.e. liberty) and Socialism CAN NOT coexsit. i say again, CAN NOT! Socialism will destroy the Liberty and ultimatly lead to oppression and tyranny.

    Any one who supports socialism is a traitor, a traitor to our country, our way of life and there neighbors. I will stuanchly deffend those ideals, and will be more then happy to raise arms against those that present a threat to those ideals. So if socialism does come you can count me on the list of every single supporter of socialist as I will be more then happy to raise arms against them. I would rather die and condemn the lives of my family to death then live with out freedom!

    Liberty and Socialism can not exsit, any who say differently are fools!
    Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.
    -Benjamin Franklin
