AlofRI is a capitalist in denial
Yeah, and he refuses to entertain the idea that 9/11 was a conspiracy.
That said, I still really like the guy. We agree on more things than we differ on.
At least with Alfie you can have a semi-reasonable discussion which doesn't involve him trying to rewrite the English language or stretch logic around his own head. Compare that to someone like Bronto or Amarel.
Why, thank you dread. I feel the same. That's the way Washington USED to be before radicals took over the GOP.
I DO know 911 was a conspiracy, I just think the blame goes to different people than you do. I also think that, with this "administration", THAT will no longer be the greatest American tragedy, and you WILL be able to blame the next one on an American institution! :-(
That's the way Washington USED to be before radicals took over the GOP.
The GOP of today is much like what the Democrats used to be when I was young. Freedom of speech defending, moderately pro legalized marijuana supporting, Capitalists. Are you saying that classical liberals are radicals?
Sometimes you are rig … um … correct, 666. I AM a capitalist but NOT denying it, albeit a "controlled capitalist". I have NOTHING against capitalism when it is used to enrich people while using a portion of its riches to help the less fortunate among them. (i.e. paying fair democratic taxes and NOT buying laws that give them YUGE advantages to gather up the nations cash). Things like: Selling life-saving drugs at 1000% profit or more. Putting $millions into Presidential races that will benefit THEM more than the people … who are supposed to OWN that government! I find myself sometimes agreeing with you, but it's getting more rare as you get more radical. Too bad.
First I want you to recognise the fact that you are advocating social democracy, and recognise how that differs from democratic socialism. Second I want you to understand that America was never a social democracy and the very structure of the American system is and has always been that of a right wing nature wherein democracy is severely limited and the moneyed interests get the final say in all affairs.
I find myself sometimes agreeing with you, but it's getting more rare as you get more radical. Too bad.
Being radical is a good thing, if you are called radical that means you are doing something right in a society where it's normal to be an anti-intellectual zombie that repeats whatever it's told.
