  1. "Famous liberals/socialists:

    Jesus Christ (his heart bled for the poor and oppressed)
    Robin Hood (Robbed from the rich to give to the poor)

    Famous powerful capitalists:

    Julius Caesar
    Genghis Khan
    The Sheriff of Nottingham and Prince John"

    ...Oh man, this is going to be way too easy.

    Famous liberals/socialists:
    Adolf Hitler
    Joseph Stalin
    Mao Tse-Tung

    Famous powerful capitalists:

    Thomas Jefferson
    Henry Ford
    Thomas Paine
    Everybody else who built this country.

    You don't seem to have any comprehention of the word 'Capitalist', as none of the above three examples can even remotely be described as fitting the definition. They were looters- the exact opposite of capitalists.
  2. Proof that there are good and bad socialists and good and bad capitalists.

  3. Thomas Jefferson = slave owner= capitalist ?!?! Good grief Charlie Brown!
  4. Yeah, and Henry Ford was a lovable guy too. An anti-semite who wrote about his beliefs and wanted to spread them. He also was an equal opportunity hater. He hated the black people, and other minorities. But he very actively tried to promote anti-semitism. He accepted an award from his buddy Hitler, and his writings were commonly read in pre-war Nazi Germany.


    Fortunately, his blatant racism did not get passed down in the Ford family. They ultimately created the Ford Foundation, which has promoted progressive thought. Was the Ford family shamed into doing this by the sinful acts of the old man? Probably to at least some degree. So perhaps this is a case of good coming from evil.

  5. Actually, the Ford Foundation may get "busted" for anti-Semitism itself per the WSJ:

    ART, nice to know that you are a member of the Dean fan club. Let me tell you something, the more he opens his mouth about national security, the deeper the hole he digs for himself. The best thing Dean could do is stick to the domestic issues. Everytime he talks about foreign policy he scares the crap out of everyone including democrats. I mean even Hillary Clinton disagrees with him on Iraq. That's pretty bad.

    But I hope he keeps it up, because I think Bush has a 20 pt lead over Dean right now. To be honest with you, I think the only guy that could beat Bush is a Gephardt. He is on the right side of the Iraq issue, he would have the Hillary and Bill Clinton's supporting him, the union support, and he has at least two decades of experience in national politics. Even though I don't agree with Dick on the issues, I respect him as a person and I think he has the most credibility on the left. But thankfully for Bush, Dean has hijacked the left and will allow Bush an easy landslide victory in 04.
  7. Why do you conclude I am a member of Dean's fan club?

    More unfounded assumptions from Mav.

    Because only a member of his fan club would be so desperate to post rhetoric from that guy that they would actually go to his very own website to find it. I don't think there are a lot of people on this board that frequent Dean's website. Is there anything else from his website you care to post.

    How about how he wants to raise over 50 different taxes? Or how about the link to where he says we should cut our military size. Or maybe post a link to where he talks about adding another 20 layers to government.

    ART, if you are going to be posting articles from the democratic hopefuls, stick to Gephardt ok?
  9. So you assumed fact not in evidence about which candidate I would vote for. Typical. You continue to build a case for you being a person of shallow thought and simple mindedness.

    Unless someone votes party line without thought, unless someone votes for the incumbent without thought, unless someone votes for Bush without a thought, reading the ideas of both leading candidates who are running from president makes sense.

    Rather than debate any of the points in Dean's speech, you resort to your base and typical approach.

    Dull, dull, dull.

    If there is something I care to post, I will post it, without or without your insipid prompting.
