    Trust me sweetie, you would be the first $#@! booted off if I had.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    Yes, the thread was started from a specific point of view, socialism is tantamount to slavery. I had expected some to argue their point of why socialism, et al, was good for humanity. And for the most part that is exactly what happened and I thank all of those posters who didn't resort to name calling and snark. I didn't know about the tpf function (and it wouldn't have worked in this forum anyway) but if I had there are at least three posters I would have eliminated immediately, very first post they made because they were simply trolling and adding nothing to the discussion.

    I am leaving this thread now. You can continue to bash each other if you wish.

    That's a little vague if you ask me. So let's try and get a little more specific please.

    Crony collusion? By whom?

    Exactly what "government" is selling US out?

    Tough if it's vague. Vague? The government would of course refer to the U.S. federal government. Business, big business? Take your pick. How about the Kochs?

    Slightly better. The Kochs? you'd be quite right. Who else?
