    Democracy vs Communist,

    In a recent thread there are some observations about Democracy versus Communism.
    I always find those discussions interesting. At the simplistic level the USA has a population of about 600 million while China has triple that number.
    So how is it possible to say that for organization purposes, one is superior to the other?
    I am not suggesting one or the other is THE system, just that there are strengths and weaknesses in both systems.
    How say you?

    How say I? Thusly:

    That there is more chance of reaching a general consensus in a 'what oil is best' thread than having a completely civil discussion on the topic of politics - no matter how hard everyone tries.

    Let me know where communism or socialism has been a success....and I'll give you an answer....and I agree with you rebelyell, we are quickly becoming a 3rd world sh*thole, just like those in Europe...but Hell, some folks seem to enjoy "Free Sh*t" and the government controlling their miserable lives from birth to death.

    Sorry, you can have that crap, I'll take my freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom of Religion, freedom to own a gun and protect my family, life, and property....Fu*k the Rest of that Sh*t...I want only one thing from the Gubberment...."Stay the Hell out of my life"

    Right now we have a situation in nj where they want to shut down the pine barrens make it national wilderness,no more bikes jeeps etc.Who in there right mind would embrace this communist idealogy?Funny how no one said shit when they built all those houses on unstable sugar sand.I don't know how much longer this country has before utter stupidity allows someone to totally consume it and.boil it totally up in vapors.I'm tired of being told where I can n can't ride but it's ok to build a housing development or those sun panel farms an no one says.crap.I am 41 and people my age and younger have.an.fu I don't care bout you mentality which isnt.good at all for things.at least it seems alot of them have.no interest in stuff anymore and when things go bad we are gonna be handed.over by a whimper with.so many kids oblivious in folks house playing video games and not paying attention. To stuff in the world.

    I agree with "show me a place where communism works", FOR THE PEOPLE, and I'll check it out, maybe even consider moving. Our "worlds greatest community organizer" recently visited Cuba, praised their free health care and education, while ignoring the arrests of political dissidents, while he was doing the wave at a ball game. I vacationed in Playa del Carmen last year, talked with some Canadians that had visited Cuba. "What's it like" I ask, "oh, kind of like Mexico, only cheaper, dirtier, and poorer," he says. Oh, yeah, OK then, I'll pass. Those folk's income is about $20 / month. You want internet access ? Sure, go to a cafe, only a couple dollars an hour... use all you want... a real worker's paradise. I'll stick with what I got going on here, thanks..

    "I want to live in a country where even the poor people are fat, maids drive nice cars, ............"

    According to the US Census Bureau's population clock, the estimated 2015 United States population (July 2015) is over 321.3 million. This differs a bit from the 325.1 million estimated by the United Nations.

    By population, the United States of America is the third largest country in the world, a long way behind China (1.4 billion) and India (1.28 billion).

    I believe that ALL of us will be long dead...before the USA hits the 600 million population mark....since it is only 325 million now.

    And in comparison, China has more than FOUR (4) times the population that the USA has.
    600 Million must include those "undocumented" Aliens Mike..... or the Dead that vote in the Illinois Primary
