    Re: Democrats are More Extreme than Republicans

    No. You have not and I explained why you have not done this.
    1) You have not supported your claim that the DSA actually supports private property rights in the long-term.
    2) Marxism is not...

    Re: Democrats are More Extreme than Republicans

    Of course it rebuts your argument. They are proposing socialism. The reason for the disconnect is because you've actually just invented this supposed DSA policy position. They are Socialists. ...

    You are hilarious. I rebutted your points. So, I guess go pretend you've addressed them and feel smug or whatever. For example, you made some comparison between Marxism and the DSA which I clearly...

    This post is difficult to parse and refute because you are all over the place and have made gross generalizations leading to incorrect conclusions and false premises leading to faulty logic.

    Re: Democrats are More Extreme than Republicans

    I don't think they are different at all. At least not in any meaningful way. The DS don't come out and say replace private ownership with co-ops. How do you get to their goal, ownership and...

    Without trying to interpret what I mean, just go by the group's self-description and put it next to a description of Marxism

    For instance they explain government ownership as follows:

    1. If we generally agree then your chart is generally meaningless. Please... please stop arguing about. It seems to me a statistic molded...

    Intimidation is force. More precisely, intimidation is the implication of force. If you don't behave like I am demanding, then I may use force to compel you. That is intimidation. And...

    Your analogy is absurd. If the choice was to have no front door or an overpriced cast-iron front door, I suspect most people would prefer the latter.

    Pitchforks and torches is a red herring. Someone can be violent without weapons. When a mob forms around someone and forces them to leave an otherwise public space, it is a form of violence. ...

    If we believe that all immutable characteristics should be protected, then your conclusion makes sense.
    1) I am not sure the courts have specifically ruled in such a manner. You'd have to...
