    A shame, why not learn about these, have you ever wondered why so many embraced these for so long ?

    Disagree.
    Maybe Leon Trotsky
    Lenin may not have been "bad" at first.
    The trouble is, we as Americans have been fed hundreds of years of anti-communistic propaganda..
    So, we know little of these men except negative things.
    Or, if capitalism is so great(and it is not !) then why has it feared communism so ????

    I picked Trotskism 'cause it sounds like I'd be eating pigs feet, which is better than the alternative Moaism, after all, who really likes giant, flightless birds?
    So follow me into the desert

    And all the little pigs have God

    I don't "have" to do anything I don't want to.

    Choose something I don't believe in, because I 'have' to? I wouldn't and I would suffer the consequences.

    Well, not really. First as Communism goes, the U.S.S.R. only began it's communist rule in 1917 and the anti-Communist sentiment only started post WWII, that's 1945. So we've only been "FED" for 63 years, not a few hundred years. I'm sure Lenin, Trotsky and Stalin loved their mothers, started out in the world very idealistic, had a puppy they loved and cared for etc. etc. So what? Everyone starts out in the world innocent - as people they did what they did, they lived how they lived and history judged them. Is there an "up side" sure! Isn't there always? Denzines of National Socialism equivocate how they were misunderstood and how the geocide was a "mistake", but hey! They're people too! They eat, sleep, love and laugh like the rest of us don't they?

    No system is perfect. Capitalism isn't, Communism isn't, but some are better than others. Capitalism is better than others - most if not all others. Is it "great"? Define great. This is not a defense of Capitalism but an accurate depiction of Communism, which was worse than others, which is why in Russia, it no longer exists. I know... it was perveted and wasn't pure, Marxism wasn't followed, it was supposed to be about the workers.. bla bla bla. Problem is, human nature was overlooked in the equation. There is no "pure" Communism or "pure" Capitalism or pure anything - all of these systems have their faults and have to accomodate for those faults to survive. Capitalism feared Communism out of a belief that Communists were out to convert and take over the same way the Nazi's did. The fear was mostly in the belief that Communist Russia would use nuclear arms to fulfill that goal. History since the fall of Communism shows that a lot of what we thought in the 1950's-1980's was incorrect. I'm sure the Communists fear of Capitalism had similar views... all of which is academic at this point.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Edit: If I had to pick from the list, I'd pick a .45 to the brain. This poll is akin to asking how one wants to die: live dismemberment, burning to death, drowning to death, eaten alive by animals, or suffocation.
