What is the point of putting up a bunch of half-brained quotes? Is a bunch of quoted opinions supposed to be your idea of "proof" that socialism is better than capitalism? Rather than opinion let me give you some facts. For most of human history, most people were poor. Poverty was the norm - in the ancient world, in the middle ages, in the east and in the west. Only recently, when mercantile trade restrictions were removed, when businesses began reinvesting profits into capital machinery, has the average person been able to enjoy luxuries previously afforded only to the rich. How do you think you ended up with the affordable computer and internet service you used to type these stupid quotes, government redistribution?

It's so easy to pile on American teachers...that's the only thing where there is political unanimity in this country. As a conservative, public high school history teacher I'd like to advance the theory that generations of liberalism has weakened the American character to the point where kids have become coddled, entitled pansies who have the full support of their spineless parents when a teacher places demands on them. And that's if they even have parents who pay attention. Since Medicaid began covering natal care there has been no financial disincentive for an irresponsible 18 year old to churn out a couple future losers who see school as just an 8 hour obstacle in a daily agenda filled with drinking, drugs and sex. Yes, public education has its problems, but kids raised without respect, discipline or multiple parents is a much bigger problem.
Correct. Someone with the guts to move right, not left
We do need a third party...one with the economic policies of libertarians and national defense of conservatives. But libertarians are p*****s, to quote Ann Coulter, and Republicans are turning into moderate mush on economics.
What, you would have preferred Gore??
Nadar delivered Bush 43 though

The main problem is influential radio talk show hosts who encourage listeners to support candidates who cant win...in both '08 and '12. Medved was dead wrong, twice in a row, and he'd be a better man if he admitted it.

This is what Social Security was. Millions of dollars that people were saving for retirement, just sitting there not being spent, and FDR wanted to get his hands on it. So they confiscate 6% of our earnings and we were told us it was in the national interest. JUST WATCH: the federal government will be managing our 401K and 403B retirement account withing the next 20 years. The American people would never let that happen? Look at the clown we've voted in for consecutive terms
