Davepat your points and arguments here have not only shown a fundamental lack of understanding of the terms being discussed, but also complete ignorance about modern history and global markets and foreign governments.

You don't know what socialism is because you talk about it as if it's communism. Communism is the most extreme example of socialism and nobody is arguing that's good. It's terrible. Socialist economics are basically just a redistribution of wealth to ensure fairness and a more common good. The USA is full of socialism. Highways, police and taxes are examples of socialist dollars at work. I'm going to assume you're not dumb enough to argue that these things aren't needed so we'll leave the explanation at that.

So far all you've really managed to do in this thread is barf ignorant rhetoric along the lines of, "No you're wrong! You're stupid! Socialism never works and never has!" when in fact it is thriving and succeeding. Places like Canada, Iceland and Norway are all vastly more socialist than the USA and are outpacing them economically and in terms of standard of living. You can't dispute that. It's fact. You also can't dispute that the income disparity in the United States is growing. In case you don't understand what that means it means that the wealth of the country is flowing more and more each year towards a select few and less and less towards the average American. While I've apparently been being brainwashed by state media (we don't have state media in Canada), my economy has continously outperformed yours and our cities have continuously been voted by the worldwide community as the best in the world to live in. Socialism has clearly failed...Well, at least as far as CNN and Fox News are concerned. Got to watch out for those evil socialists right!?!? They're coming to steal your money!

Oh, and please. Spare us your Brave New World balogna. Referring to a 1932 novel as your argument against socialism is about as intelligent as me referring to the movie Wall-E as a good argument against capitalism.

Before you post again, try and do a little reading about what the world is like outside the USA. So far, you've shown you don't know anything about it.

Noproblem, you say socialism is evil, but again, you're not referring to it correctly. You got yourself into the predicament you're in. Marriage is a legal arrangement into which you entered willingly. That's contract or marital law, not socialism. You can thank the 45 yr old stay at home or low income wives of the world for your current problems, because their votes count and not many of them would be willing to vote for a system where their husband all of the sudden divorces them at 45 and they're forced to find work at wallmart just to survive.
