    Yeah. I remember the good old days when Bush revoked the constitution and the bill of rights with his "patriot" act. He also helped create the Department of Homeland Security and the TSA, both of which pretty much destroyed America's freedom. Far more than any terrorist ever could.

    F*** Bush, F*** Obama. F*** the left/right idiots who can't see the real enemy that threatens us all.

    And let me tell you something. It aint Osama-bin-Goldstein.

    Topic poster grew up being taught to fear anything not "democracy", didn't he...

    As for the killswitch, well...if it goes through, and it gets pressed...I can guarantee what happened in Egypt will like like a tiny spat on a playground compared to the shit that'll go down stateside.

    No, topic poster was brought up to denounce a a system that fails. Though this my not be the proper topic, I will ask you, where may I ask has a pure socialistic utopia actually worked outside of the lost city of the mythical Atlantis? Socialism and all derived forms of government all fail because of human nature. There is not government that will work in its purest form. Democracy died with the Roman Empire, and a Republic is slowly failing. I'm not gonna lie, Socialism has its strong points, but as it stands, it doesn't work. The only way any government will work with socialism, is if it integrates every good thing about every form of government (except Monarchical, and dictatorships). Not only will this never happen, but it won't work either because its not going to happen right. I honestly hope the world ends in 2012. I have lost all faith in humanity, and all faith in the intelligence of the human race. Not only because the slate has become so complicated, but because no one wants to try to do anything (or can't) about the state of the world, and its not gonna get better unattended. Just wipe the slate clean, and let the process begin anew, and hopefully our predecessors will not make the same mistakes.

    On topic: A killswitch is bullshit that may be done because people are fearful.

    Also this killswitch has nothing to do with socialism.
    Socialism is a good thing, it hangs with SOCIAL and SOCIETY, something the world has cared too little about these past years.
    Im not too sure about Obama, I have yet to see changes but I also think that has a lot to do with the American people and the idiot politicians like Palin

    Well if this gets passed I can imagine a lot of people looking into mesh networks again and setting up backup/community intranets.

    In the long run they join up and you have a utopian socialist internet [​IMG]

    Fuck the US government.
    Fuck every government for that matter.
    I say a worldwide revolution to kick all the corrupt assholes in all the governments around the world out of power is in order.

    a Revolution. A very violent revolution...That's what it will all come down to.

    ..people will die to protect their rights..

    Do you know that the government has a dispatch team called NorthCom?..

    you know what it's job is?

    to stop / kill / mame mass protests with excessive force....(like the one in Egypt)

    The Declaration of Independence gives the the *given* right to rebel if we the people, see that the government is a destructive force to itself, or the population

    no wonder half of those crooks at Capitol Hill don't hail the Declaration of Independence and think we should do away with it...

    You do know that Canada has been somewhat of a socialist country for a long long time right? And that we are better off then most Americans cause we can get our health care and shit.

    Uh, Americans can get health care just fine, and without waiting on a list for months to years for major surgeries.

    Anyway, the kill switch isn't as much a socialist move as it is a statist move. While the Pres. has clear tendencies towards socialist / Marxist policies, he conforms more to the view that the government is capable of providing _everything_ a person needs, and blocking channels of dissent.

    he is against "accumulated wealth" and is a "anti-capitalist"....and also refused to respect the pledge of allegiance....what, he thinks he's too good for America and that we should be saying our pledge directly to HIM?

    what kind of Nazi did we empower!? [​IMG]

    some people say the world will end in 2012 because that's when his election is up..and some other people say that...he won't give up his power.....

    scary thought...but...it's just a conspiracy...


    and Socialism means - "the government will provide...EVERTHING."

    "all you need to do is be a good little sheep and let us control every aspect of your life...because everything we do is for the good for you...you don't know what's best for you...you're too stupid."

    VERY VERY. VERY tediously close to the borderline of communism.

    Socalism is a lying seg-way to the bridge the gap of communism for a nation.

    because people would rebel greatly if a nation swtiched directly to communism...no...they have to slowly phase into it

    Russia was first a "share the wealth" socalist state...

    because millions of people were UNEMPLOYED and the ECONOMY WAS SUFFERING. (sound familiar?)

    ....then it phased over into a communistic country.

    LOL - I also saw this 3 weeks ago

    That's not what socialism means at all. Socialism is putting the advancement and care of society high on the political agenda. What you're thinking of is a dictatorship. Sweden has been a socialist country for the longest of time and is nothing like you describe. If Obama was a socialist he wouldn't be creating a killswitch, he would be campaigning for a basic free internet service in every home.
