    Nobody cares what Noam Chomsky says......he's a bit radical I dare say.
    Let me be a free man, free to travel, free to stop, free to work, free to trade where I choose, free to choose my own teachers, free to follow the religion of my fathers, free to talk, think and act for myself. - Chief Joseph, Nez Perce

    Sure, you won't hear anything like that from some politically correct and loyal ass-licker.
    I wanted to get peoples opinion on that, so your comment is one of value.

    I tend to think that people who write these sorts of things are just waiting for the US's failure. The US has the longest lasting government since it was established. Britain does not have the longest last because they changed their form of government many times, as well as France, Germany, and main other countries.

    If the US failed with democracy, I have a feeling many would be happy out of maybe - pure jealousy.

    Due to SOCIALISM (a relative of communism) the US is slipping from democracy a bit, but don't go accusing us when your government was no better. Russia attempted demcoracy for about 8 months before it fell and communism took over.

    Yes, because when I think "communism" I think Boris Yeltsin and those uber-commies Egor Gaidar and Anatoly Chubais! Privitization and free-floating prices -- the hallmarks of communization!
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    Like communism's any better

    And if democracy is crap, why is this thread attacking the US for supposedly failing at democracy?

    I don't understand why socialism can not be democratic. Socialism isn't a form of government, but an economic system.

    Compare: Communism vs. Capitalism vs. Socialism etc.
    ECONOMIC SYSTEMS, SOCIAL ORGANIZATIONs OF SOCIETY

    Compare: Democracy vs. Dictatorship vs. Monarchy etc.
    FORMS OF GOVERNMENT

    There are states in India that are democratically elected communist. Don't think that communism and democracy are antonyms!
