Oh and this is a rebuttal to the guy who gave those same, tired lies to vote against Romney:


Powerful video from a former Obama supporter

We think, the question is do you?

Frankly at this point in the discussion, I would suggest that you enroll in a elementary civics class, that would be a good starting point.

I've seen the president called all three of those on a single page of a thread, so it is hardly worth trying to educate people. Pick one -ist, and be done with it.
Marxism is a plan to achieve Communism and Socialism is simply a stage in the process. Fascism is the tool used in conjunction with the plan. Collapsing the current system is what is desired to make way for the new system.

No, don't worry. I think your brain froze for a few seconds. At least that's what happened to me.

I think you've got narcissism confused with confidence. Now, if you were talking about someone with a real narcissistic personality disorder, I'd have to pick Sarah Palin.

Being rich and successful is not a crime you know? You guys don't mind Hollywood and these other wealthy Democrats out there(who outnumber wealthy Republicans)but then you act like being rich is so evil.
You didn't answer the question the other poster asked:

"So what is it when the Big Private Businesses control the Government"?

This thread is as idiotic as starting one saying "Since Mitt is a Mormon, we need proof Ann is his only wife?" would be.

Another thread that accuses Obama of being a communist/socialist. The fact is that he is a capitalist who believes in a social safety net, which is Capitalism with some socialistic safety nets like Social Security, medicare, etc.
