Society will suffer due to the results of all these chosen philosophies and the state adopting them will eventually  need to find scapegoats to prop up it's rule. Read a few history books.

There is no need to be flippant with me.   I am just trying to understand where you are coming from.  Just because I don't buy into your world view, doesn't make me ignorant.

I voted yes.  In fact, the far left i quite anti-Semitic.
The farther left they get the more antisemetic they become.
David Horowitz even wrote a book detailing it.

Are you trying to insinuate all collectivists or socialists are anti-semites?
Certainly not ALL...but far more than the general population as a whole.

In Germany the Nazi's were anti semites.Italian fascism in contast wasn't anti semitic. Scapegoats will always be needed in a totalitarian collectivist state. Pol Pot chose city dwellers.Mugabe chose white farm owners. Stalin massacred the Kulaks.Far Leftists generally depict business as evil and want to establish central planning of some type which eventually produces mass starvation and murder.

Most leftists just behave like anti semites in an effort to be fair. I've been informed by leftists repeatedly that everything they do is in an effort to be fair .  :roll:

I think Carter is a very intelligent good man with extremely bad ideas.

I voted, no.

But I think the Poll questions states "FAR left"

Have you looked at http://www.paulbogdanor.com/secondholocaust.html. I just discovered it today. This is an interesting link also http://www.campaignforliberty.com/article.php?view=108. Reading this article was the motivating factor to my posting the poll.You're  also probably aware I hold a lot of libertarian views. I believe fascism to be just a form of right wing socialism for instance.MSM depicted Von Brunn as a neo nazi of the far right. I don't believe racial collectivism or anti semitism has much  in common with the  right.The right generally supports Israel while the left generally attacks Israel imho.

What is generally considered to be the "right" in the US today has entirely embraced collectivism and the almighty state. Lead by the cowards in the GOP, the neo-con dolts continue to march us toward socialism. That much is obvious. In theory, you're correct. The right has nothing to do with nasty collectivism or anti-anythingism. It's just too bad there aren't very many real conservatives left.
I always bring my hips to the party.

Jonah Goldberg discusses this topic in his book. He contends that the mainstream left isnt anti-semetic per se, but is perfectly willing to feel sympathetic and even defend those from the far left who are.

I thought I was asking Veritas for the actual facts.Too many dead folks have been known to vote  wherever any Democratic political machine has political  sway. I'm just very aware how the left operates.

OOOh, yes, the left has all these nasty little tricks for rigging elections....and I could make the equally stupid claim that the right always gerrymanders districts to guarantee they will have the majority.....
