If you don't think this web site is "Left", try doing a "Search for Friends" (once you are a member) for both Democrat and Republican. There are approx. 6200 more registered Democrats than Republicans who make comments to these articles. Independents number 11818. And you do not have to be a U.S. Citizen, or even live in the USA to make comments. These threads are open to Al Qaeda, Hamas, Fata, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan, North Korea, Venezuela, etc.
So do not be disturbed by rabid comments about capitalism. Around the world, Republicans are outnumbered, but, we are the strongest nation on the planet. Thanks to the foresight of our Founding Fathers.
You shall find socialist governments throughout our planet because they are self fulfilling. Once installed, they are very difficult to unseat. This should be ample evidence that electing Obama to our government, or any one like him, could be devastating to our cherished existence.
