Jonathan, you seem to have such a huge beef with anything similar to socialism...you must really hate that Jesus guy, right?
You are a GOOF, man!! By the 'classic' definition, Hitler and Stalin we dictators. Liberalism is about freedom and caring about the general welfare of your fellow human beings.Originally posted by Jonathan
I have a huge beef with socialism yes, but not Jesus. You see, socialism only works with continous intervention by God. As I am sure that there is no one alive now that is Jesus, and the millenial reign has not yet started, then all attemps at socialism will fail. I do concede that in theory they sound great, but until God continually intervenes, or changes the laws of physics, it will not work in this world.
Why do you alway mention Jesus was a liberal? According to the classical definition, so was Satan, Hitler, Martin L. King Jr., Stalin, Marx, Gandhi, or anyone else who attempted to change the status quo. (Notice that the Nazi party was the National Socialist party of Germany. BTW, I guess nazi is an acronym or abbreviation for the German equivalent of 'national socialist').

Well, I didn't understand the second part*snip*
I meant 'memo', not 'meno'...otherwise, it makes perfect sense. Basing your views on some 2000 year old mythology means as much to me as basing your vies on Spongebob Squarepants.Oh, and basing your political beliefs of a minority interpretation of a specific mythology carries little weight with me, in case you missed the meno I sent out.

I have spend day and night thinking aobut how to fix this world that we live in for the better part of four months. I could use some input. more heads are better then my out dated piece of wet wear. Any suggestions?
I'm looking to:
1. Make it cheaper to live in america.
2. Have free health care.
3. Make drinking, fatty fast food, and cigarettes made illegal in the united States.
4. everyone gets a job.
5. The best Education for free for everyone.
How do we achieve this I ask you.
Oh yes I do realize that by my calculations we won't need to save the US, but it gives me something to do, when I can't sleep at night.
This resembles the way Republicans have lifted the restrictions of hazardous waste dumping...why is it illegal for me to dump my trash in your yard, but no big deal if a corporation dumps arsenic in your drinking water?Originally posted by schwarzchildradius
Clinton vetoed the 1994 bill from Newt's Congress designed to lift the legal requirements for corporations to make honest statements to their shareholders. He said he vetoed it because 'Our citizens should have legal recourse in our courts.' The veto was overrided by a 2/3 majority, and the result is the recent corporate debacles such as Enron.
Requiring companies to be honest with stockholders is not excessive regulation in any context that I can think of. It's almost like, the Democrats want to protect the public.
