This is a pretty tough one, a communist vs a theocratic.

NelsonKnows - That statement is completely false. Do you like Paul? What if I said Paul wants to abandon all babies in the woods. If they survive on their own, they can join society when capable of toddling out under their own power?

Bernie Sanders isn't a communist you ignorant folk. :( Do your research!

He's a socialist, i just exaggerated him by calling him a communist.
NelsonKnows says2015-05-14T18:38:16.9117996-05:00
TBR - please offer evidence as to why my statement is false and try to stay in the realm of reality. Why would you assume I like Paul, my statement was germain to Sanders. And, Abandoning ALL babies sounds like more of a Collectivist policy...Something Sanders might embrace because they aren't contributing to the collective. Furthermore, if you told me Paul said that, I'd ask for proof and call you a liar until you produced it. Sanders most definately does not believe in the right of personal & private property. BERNIE SANDERS is a DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST, he believes the Gov. has dominion over property and the means of production, not the individual.

Triangle.128k: Bernie Sanders is not a communist he is a social democrat (also called democratic socialist but far far different from pure socialism). Hes in favor of nothing more extreme than how they do things in the nordic countries. And you shouldn't exaggerate like that. Its spreading misinformation because its a different political ideology. Its like if I called Rand Paul an anarchist its just not true.

NelsonKnows - What? You want me to prove the negative, and admit that the BOP SHOULD be on the one making the outlandish claim? Right. Prove to ME that he is "doesnt believe in private property....He's Anti-Constitutional"
TBR says2015-05-15T18:53:17.3109695-05:00
NelsonKnows says - What? You want me to prove the negative, yet admit the BOP is on the accuser? Are you a joke?
