Put That Wall Back Up!

Of course there are many forms of Government and being the brainwashed Marxist loving Stalinite that i am, i would have all you capitalist pig dogs eating turnips and toiling in fields all the live long day.
Luckily for you, i have as much chance of starting a Communist revolution as i have of become Pope but as the populations of countries such as Burma, Georgia and Pakistan march for Democracy, is it such a great thing to be demanding?
Best people to ask would be those who have lived under Socialism and Democracy and ask them which they preferred.
The Forsa Institute did just that in Germany and found only 3% of people who originated from East Germany said they were very satisfied with the way that democracy worked.
The poll by the Forsa institute showed that 73% of those from the east believed that socialism was a good idea in principle, but had been poorly implemented. Over 90% argued that they enjoyed better social protection during the GDR era.
The revolution is gaining pace comrades, order more turnips in preparation.

I guess the idea is to force democracy on peeps, and then bomb them if they elect the wrong leader so hopefully the next time they'll choose someone we like better. And of course socialism will work cuz we're all sharing types at heart, yep. I'm with you on the Marxism though cuz that "from each according to her abilities" thing will work out well for me as I'll get to do word search puzzles all day while everyone else makes widgets or whatever, yay!

"Is a man not entitled to the sweat of his own brow?

No, says the man in Washington. It belongs to the poor.
No, says the man in the Vatican. It belongs to God.
No, says the man in Moscow. It belongs to everyone.

I reject those answers.

An oldie but a goodie. Long live Ayn Rand. (She's dead, but you get the picture)

I cannot support any form of government that promotes turnips. I have a similar stand on Banana Republics.
