Love it!  Right on.  Today's liberals are liberal in name only  most do not know how socialism IS fascism with all the same trappings (banning this and that, compelled compliance, submission to the state).  Wake up, already.  Liberals are the new authoritarians, the new ministers of truth, self-appointed morality police, adopting every corruption of the Catholic Church of old.  Might being right, ignorant bliss.  Hypocritical is an understatement  deluded they must surely be.

Judge the person, not the 'church'  in case you haven't noticed there is not ONE church, there are millions. 

'As you sow, so shall you reap' is not a myth.  'Know the truth, and the truth shall set you free' is another fundamental.  I could write volumes on the goodness of Christian teachings and principles. 

Evil is a corruption.  The entire point of the teachings of Jesus was to avoid that corruption and to do good.  How does one pass down to the generations anything learned?  These allegories stand the test of time, language, and culture because the truth is found in the parables of which I am sure you are familiar. How have these shaped you as a child? You are kind and caring, where have you learned your morals?

My hunch is that being homosexual you could not accept the religious tenet that this was sinful.  Personally, I do not think homosexuality is that big a deal, and certainly Jesus never chastised anyone for it.  But you were sure to have faced the religious zealots judgement upon you.  But judge not everyone because of the actions of others  you don't put up with that, and neither should anyone else.  There is no 'church' there are only congregations, all of which are independent of each other.

Christianity as a philosophy and moral code is as good as any, and far less bloodthirsty than others.  Christianity was a reformation, and reform is still needed and will continue.  SJWs want to reform all of us in the image of their religion  no different than the religions of old, authoritarian in nature, judgmental of others, causing violence, being hypocritical  all the 'evils' of the 'church.'

Apparently you can't wear clothing advertising politicians  how many kids have gotten into trouble for wearing MAGA shirts or hats in the last couple years?  Public schools have become leftist indoctrination centers.  Clinton is just saying what he believes the audience needs to hear.  There is always a 'but' after his statements.  If his mouth is moving, he is lying.

It's the mantra of the Left, as well, as they spew hatred from every orifice at  the opposition.  'Hate speech' is being censored and the speaker condemned for merely opposing the in-tolerance of the Left.  The left is being 'loving' in their minds, feeling for the poor children, while calling anyone who opposes 'racist.'  I have never seen such hypocrisy in action.

It certainly can be ... but not necessarily always.

My goodness, what nonsense. "Socialism has its roots in anti-government"?  There is no socialism without government!  Socialism is the takeover of the government and the people.  Any time you use the phrase "there needs to be..." you speak as an authoritarian  this is NOT LIBERAL in any sense of the word.  Where is your respect for MY way of life?  When will I be acceptable to you, the authoritarian?  What must I do FOR YOU?  Hey, socialism is not liberalism, not at all.

Um, Adams' foundation were religious beliefs commonly associated with the teachings of Christianity. Feeding the poor, clothing the naked, healing the sick.  Robert, you have merely exchanged religions from Christianity to socialism which is a religion to the god of Power.

;-) LOL! America was NEVER a democracy, never founded as a democracy, and the word democracy does not appear in either the Declaration of Independence or the US Constitution.  Just stop it.  The USA is made up of a confederation of sovereign republics  each guaranteed to have a REPUBLICAN form of government.  Learn the difference.

Secondly, 'capitalism' is nothing more than the 'boogey-man'  the enemy of communists, totalitarians, and authoritarians.  In truth, the US economic system closely mirrors that of the communist nations  a central bank that creates money out of nothing and loans it to the government.  In communist countries, the central bank is controled by the central government, but in Western countries, the central banks are independent from their debtor governments.  As such, central banks rule the world, and frankly, the US government has been transformed into a subservient power to the private Federal Reserve Banks.  Call it fascism, communism, socialism, authoritarianism, but do not call it capitalism because that is NOT CAPITALISM.  Where is the capital?

Caring for ones' health, education, and shelter are all personal responsibilities; helping those in need is also a personal gift and contribution to others.  Centralizing health care, education, and housing is just more of the same totalitarian solutions  by the way, once all privatization is gone, everyone will be a slave to the state. And good luck with that!!  Politicians cannot be trusted  how in hell do you expect to run this utopian dream?

Indeed! Reading and listening are only one half of the dialogue  what do I have to say in response?  I have learned a great deal putting my thoughts down on paper and working them into an honest expression of my own.  I don't agree with everything that I write, and it gets edited or reworded until it's true.  Discernment requires some effort to separate the wheat from the chaff.

To attempt to eliminate all differences between people is futile.

It's not too hard to imagine  it's already here with social media and digital cameras covering nearly every square inch of 'public' spaces.  Even our phones and computers are spying on us  and the new 'smart' TV's.  Sheesh!  George Orwell's 1984 has essentially already happened!  Big Brother, the telescreen, the minute of hate, newspeak, face crime (on social media)!  And leftists are lapping it up...

E Archer, NYC

It's not about guns or wealth or speech  it's about POWER.  Regulating the power of the people  making sure they are powerless to defend themselves against those with the most power.  Freedom, independence, individualism REAL multiculturalism  requires 'empowered' individuals, and together is a force to be reckoned with. 

Socialism, authoritarianism, totalitarianism all require the power to be centralized to the ruling class  banks, governments, and military.  Republicanism inherently keeps power from being concentrated and empowers the individual to be self-determining.  Socialists are ever trying to disempower/disarm those that are not already in poverty (i.e. powerless).  They do not EVER raise up the poor, but merely make them dependents and supporters of the ruling class, always keeping them in enough misery that they will demand from the government they 'do something.'

Hmm, what changed your mind now that you carry a gun?

Wilson is being brutally honest about the cause of progressive liberal authoritarianism  to dominate.

How the government got the reputation of solving ANYTHING I will never know  I think it's because candidates for office will promise anything to get elected without the people ever considering whether the office has the power or authority to do so.  The biggest complaint about the Green New Deal is that it would bankrupt the country  not that Congress has NO AUTHORITY to pass such regulations!!

You're sounding more empowered, now that you are armed.  ;-)  Frankly I WOULD like to hear you say it, since you used to speak against guns.  I am curious how you reconcile this with your progressive leanings...

Excuse me?  Not true, not even close.

Capitalism is just the antithesis of communism.  In the US today, our money system is communist  it is the same system called for in the Communist Manifesto and used in the USSR and China.  So, the US is NOT practicing capitalism.

Forget about the word capitalism! What are we talking about here?  COMMERCE! Private enterprise and trade.  Congress was authorized to regulate COMMERCE between states.  They have usurped their authority and are now regulating COMMERCE between people within a state.  This is unconstitutional, if we were using real money like gold/silver authorized by the Constitution.  But because we are using commercial paper, we are subject to the rules of its use.  This is not capitalism!!

It doesn't matter how many volumes Marx wrote, if the premise is flawed, so is all the rest.

Again this is not communism, this is self-determination of a voluntary community.  That's what America is all about, and is indeed the foundation of the agricultural societies that formed America.  And the local churches were central to the philosophy of the community.  Self-determination progresses when in accord with natural law.

GBO, you have identified the problem but it is not capitalism, it is 'credit-ism.'  A necessary plank of communism is a central bank that prints up the currency for the nation  it is backed by nothing other than promises.  Most of the Western world adopted central banking in the early 1900's and eventually replaced gold and silver as money.  Federal Reserve Notes are interest-bearing commercial paper that are borrowed into existence and are destroyed when the promise has been paid.  Unlike gold which is 'capital,' this fiat paper money is 'debt.'  In this system rather than people's savings being backed by real capital, the money we have is holding someone else's debt.  This allows governments to 'borrow' (i.e. create) loads of money, the interest of which is to be paid via income taxes (that's THE reason income tax was introduced, it did not exist before).

As a result, all governments have been turned into banking houses, all votes are to determine from whom to take and to whom to give.  The process itself makes the bankers the rulers of the world.  Learn about the creation and destruction of money and capital.  The word capitalism was not in common usage until it was defined as the enemy of communism.  It has since become the boogeyman to all communists. 

What people do not realize is that communism/socialism are totalitarian  the only limits to the power of authorities is that which they can seize.  They want no competition?  Game over!  The people have lost the game and all are subject to cleaning the stadium.

Again, this has never been realized in any communist country.  You cannot control the human desire to be self-determining.  Communism kills all spirituality  it is soulless.  Questions like 'who am I' and 'why am I here' are answered for me.  There is no truth other than what they say it is.  Communism is a prison for all.
