The video you are talking about is about the World Trade Organization (WTO), and they were not all peaceful and they asking for that treatment by the cops (tear gasing) because they were destroying property (ie Nike store), so don't make it sound like the poor protestors were treated unjustly because they were provoking the cops, also if they were so innocent then why did they have gas masks or thing to fight against the gas, these were no Ghandis, so I don't feel sorry for them, they got what they deserved, I was forced to watch this video in high school and was told how bad the WTO is, then I learned the truth behind those protestors and how the video (just like PETA) only showed one side of the story. That is why I really dispise socialism because every liberal minded teacher/professor will fill me up with these lies to make it look like this great thing that will save the world, when historically proving that it is a utter failure that is more corrupt then capitalism, and is more trouble then what it's worth, why do you think that doctor and patients come to the US for medicine? if the countries that have universal health care are great then why does this occur? stop watching Sicko, and look at the events around you, because some times the best way to get the truth is to go out their and look for it yourself. that is why I don't watch the news because I would rather watch the event then be told how I should think about, like I said i am an individual and i don't need to be told what to do, and why i don't expect you to change your mind, I have had discussions with college professor and almost made them cry who still to this day are still trying to sell me crazy when all I do is slam the door on their face or spray them with the hose to get them off my lawn (meaning I talk back and make them retreat), I am not buying or selling, i am just discussing and debating.

Much agreed. I'd rather have equality of opportunity than equality of results. If everybody works for an equal amount of pay to achieve an equal result, then who's to say that said equal result will be the DESIRED result? If doctors, scientists and lawyers are makin' what I'd make on unemployment, or what you'd make at Wendy's; then why would they want to work to their full potential? The result may be equal in socialism, but it more than likely is a crappy result.Originally Posted by Arrianna

"MY DEAR... I GIVE YOU THE CAPELLAN CONFEDERATION"AND THUS THE WAR WAS STARTED NOT BY GUN SHOT BUT BY WEDDING BELLS
what i'm trying to get at is that you really ca't restraint people. We're not meant to be restraint. We were created to be the best we can be and socialism would basically be a step down from what we are driving for.
Nothing was perfect, nothing is perfect, nothing will ever be perfect. If god wanted us to be perfect we wouldn't hav gone through all the hard times to get to this time where everybody is somewhat truly free to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness
Instant beast.. Just add water
Be that as it may in reality it ends up the same. Whether it is Hitler, Mussolini, and Franco or Stalin, Lenin, and Mao Tse-tung they all involved a Totalitarian government that had no problem expanding through conquest.
