Rave This: If you think modern day Dems are socialists, Posing as old school Liberals.

I think the Democratic Party was overthrown by socialists in the late 50s to early 60s, when the transitition was made from the party of the working man to the party of the non-workers. What are your thoughts.
Reagan on socialism

    He told it like it was and did't care about the political elites.

    first of all, you forgot to point out the fact the guy was a Presbyterian minister, and the quote might be fake. but if it is real...

    [Ed. note: Norman Thomas and Gus Hall, the U.S. Communist Party
    Candidate, both quit American politics, agreeing that the Republican
    and Democratic parties had adopted every plank on the
    Communist/Socialist and they no longer had an alternate party platform
    on which to run.]

    way to go.

    The socialistic aspects of our government came into being before Obama was born. Socialism is not a dirty word, nor is liberal.

    I think you're better suited for the McCarthy age, Scalded Eagle. And with that, if Liberals were actually socialistic, this country would be among the best in the world. Every socialist country on this planet is more successful than America. Norway is #1 in the UN's human development annex, Germany has the strongest economy in the world (though, Germany's socialist only in social issues), ect... Here's a good map of where the world stands in Human Justice -

    germanys socialist social issues ect map world stands human justice

    Notice the countries on top? They're all socialist. So if liberals are socialist, they're pretty lousy ones. That said, some of the socialist policies liberals push for are stunted by Conservatives. I.e, this country is undergoing an intellectual civil war, so prosperity is very minimal in that regard.

    Since you're a Christian, I could say Christianity has killed people. In fact, by that logic, Christianity has killed more people than anything else on this planet. Oh, but wait, Christianity isn't a person. And neither is Socialism. They're ideas, and how they're used depends on their effectiveness.

    Have you ever tried the act of "thinking" before?

    Hmm, Crusades ring a bell?
  • James B... Omni 2012/06/29 23:46:52
    James Brice
    The Crusades were used to gain power and land by political people who depended upon the masses complete lack of knowledge (and illiteracy) of the Bible. Normal people weren't even allowed to have scripture. So, once again, this was not an act of Christianity. Socialists kill based on the motis operandi of Socialism.

    When was the last time Christians murdered anyone?

    umm, they always have.
  • James B... reaper 2012/06/29 23:49:57
    James Brice
    this is a very undisciplined statement that makes little sense. You mean individual church goers who murder someone, or a government of Christians who kill? The only true Christian communities were established around 15 to 30 A.D. and they practiced what the Socialists have always dreamed of...but if you practice the Socialist dream without God, you fall flat on your face in blood and slaughter.
  • James B... Omni 2012/06/29 23:43:48

    No sir..Christianity has never killed anyone. People using power positions in the Roman Catholic church and people in Ireland under the guise of Christianity have killed...but nowhere NEAR the number killed by Socialist, communist and fascist countries. When Muslims kill, they are following the tenets and canons of their religion. If a Christian kills innocents, then that person is going against his religion. So, you are wrong...only people claiming to be Christians kill innocents on a large and political scale. Where are the murderous Christians that have killed millions? Better take a history course.

    I think you need to read Genesis, and, well, the rest of the Bible to see what a load of crap this is.

    Genesis 1: god creates other animals and then man.
    Genesis 2: god creates man then other animals.

    that was fast pointing out a mistake.
