Glenn Beck... I cannot even fit enough expletives in this line to describe my feelings on him

"Socialists generally share the view that capitalism unfairly concentrates power and wealth among a small segment of society that controls capital and derives its wealth through a system of exploitation. This in turn creates an unequal society, that fails to provide equal opportunities for everyone to maximise their potential, and does not utilise technology and resources to their maximum potential nor in the interests of the public."

Is asking people to be a little less greedy and helping out those in need really so bad? Call me a Socialist then and don't sling it around like it's an insult. All the republicans will be looked back at 50 years from now as villains. We get it Glenn Beck, the poor should suffer, they don't deserve health care and the gays don't deserve the rights that all other people get. Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness seems to be forgotten, I suppose The Declaration Of Independence was not as important as our Constitution to the Teabaggers.

I understand that the Republicans will swear up and down that they aren't racist, they aren't classist, that they somehow have better values and morals then the heathens on the left but the below video seems to me to be a lot of angry upper class white people acting like they are at a Klan meeting and it sickens me that anyone feels they should be screaming at a person with Parkinson's instead of trying to understand that man's plight. Sometimes I don't know if I love my country anymore, it seems overtime we are committing atrocities that I thought only happened in other places. Will we ever evolve? Will we ever try and make sure everyone is provided for? Will we ever just be happy with what we have and not want more?

I guess Elvis said it best ( oh for those on the right, there was another Elvis that wrote his own songs) "What's so funny about peace, love and understanding."
