    We know.

    Some people want to own things people need so they can extract capital from them.

    Conservatives. Stuck in the past, don't remember the past.

    Socialism sounds good when the existing system stops working for the majority.

    Frankly I'm surprised people accept living under a system that considers the majority commodities to be used and discarded by the minority.

    I agree with you, generally. What do you think of Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping, and Kim Il Jong-un?

    8-10 maximum for any member of Congress, House and Senate. States have term limits why not the federal gov't? Legislators term limited out are then forced back into their districts to live under the laws they passed

    Just waiting for some rant from marke....no reflection on you. There are certain posters who tend to go on some tirade when presented with these kind of questions.

    Oh, yes, I’m in agreement with that, too.

    And to reiterate: my view is that social needs programs such as caring for the poor and otherwise indigent population should be dealt with at a state and local level.

    The federal government is far, far too big. We should make it a priority to reduce it.

    Got it. I’m not trying to make anyone rant. Just interested in what they really think. No one is going to change their opinion here.

    Will God be naked as well? I mean he's generally depicted as wearing a robe or something.
