I'm not quite sure how to rate this; 5 stars for accuracy or a thumbs down for the brutal enslaving of a once free people. Marx would be proud, welcome to Amerika.

Waffler, Smith

Probably not a good idea but I do love public property. From parks to forests wilderness to even semi public property like that open to public accomodation. It really be a boring world if all property were private.
a good idea

Simply looking at this and clearly understanding it from a capitalist point of view. Its like Mike said above. Its brutal enslaving free people. The more you learn about socialistic government the more you can see the root of it is to destroy any form of individual ambition to succeed in anything. How many of you are willing to completely give up and let someone else decide your destiny?

(-; Rick Lee Patrick, you probably didn't see it but, Waffler was the first to raise his hand to your question ;-)

AKA - Abolish all Freedom.

Robert Sarkissian, Orange, California

People of this type, Marx, Lenin, Engels, Obama, Holder, should never be quoted when discussing freedom and liberty. They are an insult to all freedom loving people. They hold all of us who believe in this constitutional republic as impediments to their top down centralized control. But unfortunately, as witnessed by all of us these past 2 election cycles, they have many fellow travelers. God help us all!

To understand ones on will, gives purpose to your destiny. At lest you are not lukewarm. In the light of so much corruption of moral behavior, yes to oppress free market in anti freedom. But to let greed be your guide rather than family unity, and the caring of it, is a disservice to the family unity of your own, and others. ! Riches are to share.!! More over the profit of the earth is for all: the king himself is served by the field. Ecclesiastes 5:9. !!!!!
To understand why socialism entered in, is to understand that that which was laid upon Israel for crucifying the bringer of liberty and freedom to light.! NO PRIVATE PROPERTY ! Acts chapter 5:5 , which brings death to liberty and freedom under our REBUBLIC. Rightly dividing between the two standings with the God of nature, who gives these two standings to take.! Doctrines of socialism and doctrines of LIBERTY AND FREEDOM ORDAINED BY GOD TO HIS GLORY. And for the support of this declaration .with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honour .Amen

It's done under the guise of 'governance' today. The state doesn't have to hold the title to your property, they just make laws that property owners must follow or lose their property. What good is ownership without control? Control is in fact ownership! Are there any limits to what the state may claim to control? If so, how are they enforced? As long as we must depend on the state to defend us from themselves, we are doomed.
