    Yes, yes, that's it. All of the things that are mentioned in the video are on the agenda of the liberal/socialists. They might even be on the agenda of the conservative socialists as well. Maybe the liberal/capitalists are out to get us.
    Or, it just might be a conspiracy of meaningless political terms. Yeah, that's it.:cool:

    Liberal and socialism are nearly identical. I list both to make sure the connection is noticed. Being conservative and socialist is impossible. So is liberal capitalist. Given that you can't figure out who voted for what on a Mothers-day resolution, I understand your confusion over the meanings of these political terms.

    Socialism is government ownership of industry.

    What we seem to have in this country today is the opposite: Industry ownership of government.

    Liberalism has been used and misused so many times that the term is meaningless. To me, a liberal is someone who believes that a big powerful government is the answer to problem, while a conservative believes in minimal government. Given those definitions, conservatives have gone the way of the dodo, while we've just lived through eight years of one of the most liberal administrations in history.

    Liberalism is not the same as socialism.

    I agree that socialism and capitalism are not compatible. They are two different economic systems.

    The little video clip had nothing at all to do with liberalism nor socialism.
