Stop Tyranny by BullMoose1912 Stop Tyranny by BullMoose1912
I thought of adding more stuff to it, but I decided that this looked best and that more detail would just be superfluous.

And if the Tea Party can quote the Founding Fathers, so can I.

Thomas Jefferson was a libertarian. By tyranny, he was referring in part to the totalitarian economic policies you support.

How so? Care to explain this? Because there's other forms of economic planning besides the centrally planned system of the Soviet Union (which I disagree with) that is, decentralized planning in which individual syndicates come to a consensus on what society needs, rather than what we have now in which individual firms, independent from one another, only produce goods that will maximize profit.

And surprisingly, you're actually right. Because I know about that PRATT (Point Refuted A Thousand Times) about Obama supposedly being a socialist. (Hence I'm really not pleased with Obama. Get that, a socialist does't like Obama. Obama's a capitalist? Who knew?) I would try to refute it, but it's already been done a thousand times before, and judging from your very intelligent comment you are too good to listen to that PRATT.

But I understand the conservative idea of individual choice. Which would be fine and dandy if that was how it actually worked in reality, rather than having only a few large firms controlling such a large part of the market, with many smaller firms that barely make any impact whatsoever.

Tea Party gets to quote the Founding Fathers because they actually know what they supported.

You want to stop tyranny, you should be protesting the government's interference in the economy (starting with your own democrat party).

I'm only a Democrat in name and pragmatism only. Frankly, I hate what I've seen of most Democrats. They're both in bed with the corporations. I would vote third-party, but third parties never win, and if too many people vote for a third party, the party at the other end wins.

Did you know that there actually was a time when there was no government interference with the economy to speak of? Yes, about 100 years ago. The markets were totally free, there were no government handouts, possibly a few soup kitchens/charities, but no government interference whatsoever. And you know what? People were well off. People named Vanderbilt, Carnegie, and Rockefeller. Everyone else? More or less abject poverty. The only reason you have whatever standard of living you do (unless your assets are worth hundreds of millions or billions now and your name is Koch, Blankfein, or something along those lines) is because of the working class lobbying the government for pesky nuisances such as 8-hour workdays, weekends, basic safety restrictions, etc.

And you think the Tea Party's right? Here's a quote from the hero of libertarians and Tea Party protesters everywhere, Thomas Paine, from his book Agrarian Justice:

To create a national fund, out of which there shall be paid to every person, when arrived at the age of twenty-one years, the sum of fifteen pounds sterling, as a compensation in part, for the loss of his or her natural inheritance, by the introduction of the system of landed property:

And also, the sum of ten pounds per annum, during life, to every person now living, of the age of fifty years, and to all others as they shall arrive at that age.


Sounds like social security to me.

There could be no such thing at landed property originally. Man did not make the earth, and though he had a natural right to occupy it, he had no right to locate as his property in perpetuity any part of it; neither did the Creator of the earth open a land-office, from whence the first title-deeds should issue.



No instinctive natural concept of private property? Sounds like a communist to me. Or as is probably more likely the case, an anarcho-collectivist. He has more in common with Mikhail Bakunin than Glenn Beck.

Hahahahaaa!:rofl:

Tea Partiers cannot quote anything right to start with, let alone the founders of the nation.
Half of them think the nation was founded on christian principles as a christian nation.

Bachmann, Palin, Snatorum, they all fuck their Constitutional remarks, American historical references, and comments about the founders.

Google the word Santorum and look at the first result. I think you'll be pleased with it.

*sigh*

You'll learn the truth one day, kid. Ignorance may be bliss, but reality doesn't tolerate it for long.
