Hillary Clinton running on the Communist party ticket

    At a meeting of the DNC, Hillary stated that she wants to "take those profits (oil company profits) and I want to put them into a strategic energy fund." Communism is a system in which there is no private ownership and socialism is a system in which the government owns the means of production. Other than "communism," though, what would you call a system where the government confiscates the profits of private companies? Between this and socialized healthcare, it seems she is advocating a Marxist form of government.

    Classic DNC class warfare tactic. Not anything new.

    There is the point to be made, however, that Stalin killed more people than Hitler.

    I'd call it an improvement of what's going on now, that's for sure...

    Yeah, it's better to give billion dollar tax breaks to the companies reaping $10-12 billion quarterly profits.

    Let the propaganda effort begin.

    At least she can say she tried to tackle the looming health insurance crisis 15 years ago. Are we better off letting corporations decide our fate?

    I'm sure big oil is really eager to end our addiction to black gold. why not invest the billions in subsidies were giving big oil into becoming a world leader in alternative fuels?

    But, hey with Saudi Arabia's best friend in the white house we don't need to be communist do we? We'll just rely on Communist China and our friends in the middle east to look out for our best interests.
  7. Once, there was a thing called the Windfall Profits Tax. It was created by those noted Marxist theoreticians in the old Republican party, before the crazy train took the party away.

    Great comeback! Ha ha ha
  10. Unfortunately, 3bags, the crazy train that's running the government, and the GOP for the past decade, is unprecedented in the history of this country.

    I may have to agree with you on this one, but again you have to be willing to admit that it's pretty damn looney over there on the left.

    But she has her husband's gift for comedy. She's just so natural at it:
