    are finally at the end crisis of capitalism and should all work to bring on the revolution and eliminate private property.  Most of them will insist they are not Maoists but rather the heralds of a new glorious socialist paradise.

    It is no use arguing with them but I do feel the need to mock them occasionally.

    Where are we, now that we need us most?

      have to be a Maoist to see that. And by the way what exactly is a Maoist and how is he like anything on the American left? You understand that if we were Communists we would just simply take your stuff by force, right? And that Mao and Lenin and Castro preached and practiced this right? So away with your tired cliches and your false equivalences? You are as bad as Issa arguing that "Fast and Furious was a plot to take away guns.

      Your need to mock betrays an immaturity that makes it impossible for you to contribute anything serious to a discussion. And you run the risk of persuading the unpersuaded that Obama's supporters are as irrational and immature as your average Rush Limbaugh supporter.

      If Obama's policies were so great why is unemployment above 8%? The real reasons is because of loss of government jobs but that is the way of capitalism is it not?
      Free market reformers cutting the size of government is causing suffering that capitalism can not ease.

      There will be no glorious socialist paradise but there will be no glorious capitalist paradise either. And the proven policies of the past that have worked have been thrown aside by Republicans and DLC Democrats. Like you. So while you are mocking people who disagree with you people are hurting. And you refuse to help them. And you reduce those of us who would help them to an irrelevant stereotypic And if you reflect the Presidents most ardent supporters it is no wonder he is losing the left. And if Romney wins do not blame me, because I do not matter, right?
