No left?  Geez a few minutes of reading this board disproves that theory. 

 

the left lacks the political clout to influence policy. further, the democratic party would be considered a conservative party in most other developed nations. pretty much the only thing the left can do politically is mock the stupid fugs who think ppaca is socialism or that obama is at all interested in redistributing wealth, or take to the streets and get beaten by police/shot by counterrevolutionaries.

 

i can see how this can come as a shock to someone who is totally ignorant to the fact that barack obama is another in a long line of neoliberal presidents; a president who is called socialist because he has the audacity to not want to gut social services QUITE as much as republicans, though significantly more than any actual socialist ever would.

 

additionally, the bulk of the internet "left" are actually milquetoast liberals who will quickly tell you that they're "not some sort of socialist or something crazy" because they are in fact centrists who will always tolerate capitalism so long as overt discrimination isn't codified into law (because then they start feeling a little guilty about the systemic discrimination and exploitation that accompanies capitalist society)

There are turning points in World History.

But cling to the same old crap.

 

 

Or recognize true political greatness.

Extremist left: wants to get organic food and eliminate GMO's...dressed like an annoying hipster..or homeless dude

Extreme Right: blows up abortion clinics while holding rattlesankes...dressed like Boss Hogg if they own a business or like Uncle Jessie if a workin man. Or a homeless dude..

that's strange as i don't have a beard atm but you repeatedly parrot republican talking points under the guise of a free thinking independent

 

i don't think this is a very good comparison
