Our current president is a product of everything this man fought against. I bristle when they are compared.

People only want this taken down because it conflicts with the view that conservatives are all racist.

While I am a socialist, when looking through your anti-socialist album, you respect this man, I found that he stuck out a bit. I mean this is the man who said...

"You can't talk about solving the economic problem of the Negro without talking about billions of dollars. You can't talk about ending the slums without first saying profit must be taken out of slums. You're really tampering and getting on dangerous ground because you are messing with folk then. You are messing with captains of industry.... Now this means that we are treading in difficult water, because it really means that we are saying that something is wrong... with capitalism.... There must be a better distribution of wealth and maybe America must move toward a democratic socialism"
Martin Luther King Jr.
Frogmore, S.C. November 14, 1966. Speech in front of his staff.

This is the man who said one of his greatest influences was A. Philip Randolph, a known socialist and labor union organizer. M.L.K., A man who hired Bayard Rustin, another socialist as his top adviser. A man who surrounded himself with many socialist and union organizers, let us not forget what he was in Tennessee for when he got shot, to help and stand by the unions...

I am not here to debate, just saying, while I greatly respect King, he just stood out a bit in your very anti-socialist album.

Let's just say I agree w/ 70% of what he stood for.

As you've noticed I think socialism guarantees mediocrity at best and chaos at worst, but MLK wanted equality (equal opportunity) not Balkanization an quotas. And you have to respect his courage, but he was no economist.

Where there are differences forms of socialism, there is democratic socialism, which America already has with the public schools, medicare, Free Clinics, etc.

Then you have national socialism, which was the kind that hitler had, then you had universal socialism which is the kind you saw in some communist leader countries.

Socialism does not equal communism, as many try and say. In fact Rustin, King's top adviser was a socialist who was apart of two anti-communist organizations.

Democratic socialism speaks of helping the elder, public education, getting the average worker a fair pay for their work, of course socialist were the main people behind the whole 40 hr work week many decades ago.. socialist generally look for the average person, trying to make their life better, or at least increase the longevity of the people.

One of the founding fathers was a socialist, he was speaking of a medicare 200 years before we even got medicare in this country... though he is not as known, yet easy to look up, because of his hatred of organized religions.
