Damn you fucking progtards are more confused about socialism than the contards.


What's to be confused about? I've not yet received a itemized bill for any fire or police services I've received. They're funded by a pool generated by taxes. Ergo, Socialism.


You are very ignorant about what is and isn't socialism. Taxes are not socialism.

Socialism is an economic system characterized by social ownership of the means of production and co-operative management of the economy. "Social ownership" may refer to cooperative enterprises, common ownership, state ownership, citizen ownership of equity, or any combination of these. There are many varieties of socialism and there is no single definition encapsulating all of them. They differ in the type of social ownership they advocate, the degree to which they rely on markets or planning, how management is to be organized within productive institutions, and the role of the state in constructing socialism.

You probably shouldn't be on your "plutocrat masters" computer if you want to speak from a position of integrity. Nahmean?


I paid cash for my computer, so did you, through corporate subsidies to high tech industry that developed it.. Thanks Ceadar ! :D I paid for the computer once, you will pay a bit towards many every time you make or spend a dollar. ;)


Micro electronics especially microprocessors were an outgrowth of the NASA demand for smaller and lighter electronics for space missions. It was not subsidized silly. It was the demand NASA had for electronics.

Major contradiction, man. There's a synergy in what you typed that goes way above your head. The government employs the product of capitalism. Without that "employ" your capitalists don't make as much money. Plus, there's the blatant subsidizing of all technology that capitalism relies on and the infrastructure with which it moves it around the country. Capitalism without socialism is impossible. You can't find a pure example of it in the world.

:die: :die: :die: :die: :die:
So how come the best things come from independent companies doing their own research for better products. Also lone inventors come up with much of the innovation. You progressives think that the sun rises and falls with the government. What happened to the billions given to the green energy companies to help them become profitable??? Down the drain of bankruptcy. Your great Obama gave quite a few of them a massive amount of money. What was the answer from one of the people involved in giving that money? "I told you energy is expensive!" So giving government money to these failed companies is part of the expense. Great things happening in government subsidies to create something in green energy.

IDIOTIC PROGRESSIVES
