    First of all, Fidel Castro is still alive so he's still an ultra-Leftwing Communist ... so I don't know why you referred to him in the past tense. He was the First Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba.

    Secondly, Josef Stalin was also an ultra-Leftwing Communist. He was the General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union and was the designated heir to Vladimir Lenin.

    There's nothing "politically conservative" about either of these men.

    Are you trying to re-write history, Bob? Well, if so all I can say is that Stalin would be very proud of your Stalinesque revision of history.

    Castro is Communist and Stalin was too but he was extremely paranoid which is why he threw so many in the Gulags.

    Ha! This is hilarious, they were communists, which, last I checked, was a far left/statist position.

    When has a "Conservative" advocated a single party system? As Fiscal Conservatives both were utter failures! As deftly pointed out below one is still alive and still a Fsical Failure as a "Conservative"!

    If the current Liberal thread is "Corporations are the REAL evil Conservatives support!" is a bench mark. These two never allowed them!

    So far I see Epic Fail here in a sad sneaky attempt at poor semantics to make some very obscure point!

    oh so the voting supression law does not drive us toward a single party system? You're way off bounds. You have an overdeveloped amygdala and a underdeveloped anterior cingulates; which means fears drives you and you cannot anticipate, make decisions or use the scientific process

    "Voting Suppression Laws"? Please describe!

    Lol...Ok...well I spec and sell complex CNC Manufacturing Systems and I have been relatively successful at it for 25yr.s. I go east on the idea that I do not understand a scientific process and cannot base decisions on that.

    Becuase you a playing a game with semantics of what is commonly percieved by most people is in no way "scientific"! Cute! But not scientific!

    Lets see Fidel Castro is a hard core Communist Revolutionary and Joseph Stalin was a hard core Communist Mass Murderer. You can't get much more left wing then that. To suggest their conservative is comical.

    On May 1, 1961, Fidel Castro proclaimed Cuba a socialist nation. Both Castro and Stalin have followed the Marxist-Lenin form of government which is hard-left.

    Conservatives hold to traditional values.
    So if they were conservatives the values they had were brutal and savage values.
    And that would be par with most dictators.
    What's the point????

    They were true communists! Stalin kills more people than hitler but he was a great guy according to the left. And Castro! Well he's the coolest thing ever because Oliver Stone and Michael Moore said so.

    I would love to see this. Please post some sort of proof that the left wing thinks Stalin was a great guy. Don't worry. I'll wait.

    He's just the least popular communist leader. But the left still respects him enough to put him in children's cartoons or to downplay his atrocities when compared to Hitler. Stalin murdered more people but Hitler was the only monster at that time according to the left.

    They were/are men who think they they are greater than others. Men who think that THEY knew what was best for the masses - and for themselves. They were men who thought that the "people" didn't know what was right for themselves or was capable of doing the things to make their societies better.

    To use the word conservative to descrbe Stalin and Castro is idiotic.
