    Big uses the same technique as Sean Hannity and his fellow provocateurs on talk radio: take a slice of something (anything) and exaggerate into something it's not, while purposely avoiding any context. To say Bloomberg advocates socialism is about as accurate or useful (i.e., not) as me saying the military is socialist because they provide housing and meals to the troops.

    The military system is socialist. The pay is relatively similar. Nobody owns anything individually. Everyone works for the common good. The military is for those that can't hack it in the hard core capitalism.

    All those American soldiers love to live under socialist rules.

    No, Big, the military is not socialist. Neither is a family unit that shares food and housing. The democrats aren't socialists and neither is Major Bloomberg. You pervert the common meaning of socialism, apparently in order to goad someone into a response--just what they do on talk radio.

    That's the hypocrisy of capitalism. Whenever capitalism gives a big fart, it calls socialists to clean it up.

    It was this way during the Great Depression, during WWII, it was this way two years ago when Democrats won majority, and it is the way capitalists goad Americans in the military to kill people. No need to have a moral reason to attack countries. We just give you a nice pay and you will rather do that than work at a gas station or be stuck with thousands of dollars of loans when you go to college.

    You want to live like a socialist and not pay for college education? Join the military first.

    Hey matclone,

    We support the military whether they are winning or losing. Sounds like a Communist Party in Soviet Union slogan to me.

    Men have been going to war, probably based on notions of power and aquisition, long before capitalism and socialism (ways of organizing society) were conceptualized. One might reasonably argue that war is an inevitable consequence of capitalism, but not everyone shares that point of view, and are you going to say the war should end just because capitalism is bad? Or, are their more specific reasons that might persude people?

    I am saying very few of those brave (read desperate) American soldiers would be in the military going to war without socialist benefits.

    matclone, I hope you know of Robert Owen. He was one of the best self made capitalists in Europe, like Bloomberg. Then, he started setting up Marxist type communities all over Europe and even some in America. Don't be tricked by the notion that Bloomberg will not use socialist tactics as a Presidential candidate to win votes just because he has billions.

    In any case, Bloomberg will never win because Party voters are too much ensconsed in Party politics and because Bloomberg is a Jew. He is doing it to steal the votes from Democrats so that Republicans can win.
