    I would strongly recommend you do that, Ektar. You would certainly be much more comfortable exchanging the same tired old outdated ideas with people who only think and act exactly as you do.

    There are some white supremacist groups with a few openings lately, might start there...

    The fact that you had to delete 24 of the 28 words in the Amendment to make it simple to understand would seem to bolster the argument that it's ambiguous.

    The type of Socialism we have here in the U. S. A suits me just fine. I've been blessed with enormous financial success under our economic system which combines the best of capitalism (private ownership of the means of production) with the common sense regulation of commerce, reforms proposed by the Socialists and a robust welfare state.

    Your views will be more popular there than they are in Texas, I'm sure.
    Texans love Socialism. If you want proof, just try to repeal the Social Security Act or the Fair Labor Standards Act or the Occupational Safety and Health Act or Freedom of Press or Freedom of Speech or Freedom of Assemblage or equal suffrage for men and women.

    There are plenty of Texans that are not communists/socialists.

    The first examples of Socialist programs that Texans like were forced on us and we've been given very little room to work around them. Social Security? The oldest beneficiaries contributed less than $75 but have been drawing monthly for 40+ years. Given the option many would rather be responsible for their own futures, but can't because of the payroll robbery called a Social Security Tax. FLSA and OSHA place compliance burdens on employers while making it possible for Unions to survive. So, yes the socialist hiding behind the title "Union member" like these two.

    Freedom of Press or Freedom of Speech or Freedom of Assemblage were recognized in the Constitution. The provision for equal suffrage for men and women was implicit in the verbiage of the Constitution, but needed clarification as the populace grew to understand Democracy. The same verbiage allowed for the freeing of the slaves and providing equal rights to them, but again these needed to be clarified when people became more receptive to the ideas. Jefferson and several others in the Constitutional Congress saw slavery as wrong, but didn't see a way to ban slavery while creating a new nation. They compromised with the economic needs of those who required slaves to maintain the agricultural portion of the country, so that the country could be formed.

    Let us know how you feel about the folks in office now when they have taken yours and redistributed it to people like me. I will thank you for your sacrifice.

    This is why the whole "socialist" notion is so conveniently simple for lower functioning voters and why Obama's campaign gaffes about "spreading the wealth" and "clinging to their guns and religion" almost cost him the election. It's just not that simple, nowhere near so. But it makes a great topic for riling up the rabble and those whose comprehension of complex economic, social and political issues needs only a hot-button word to turn the lock in their closed minds.

    Well, when you higher functioning voters have bankrupted this nation, then why come back to the wisdom of God to solve the mess that you higer level people have created. Really, you are quite amazing Cocked and Locked. I am sure you don't understand the term elitism any more than you understand socialism.
