61. What I am saying is that capitalism could provide the freedom...
for both of us. Instead of misspending $100s billions in the Middle East we could be providing plenty of physical labor jobs in the domestic US improving our infrastructure or developing alternative sources of energy, or even preventing future 9-11s. This is how Clinton's surplus should have been used.

Its not that I feel I need to get paid to be motivated - if I participated in the pimp/ho frame of mind I suppose I might feel this way. Its that I want to build a base for the freedom to work on the projects that I want to work on. I know you might say it would be ideal if everyone started out with this base, but this would lead to undisciplined non-productivity really fast. Basically, communism would only work if people are really, really disciplined.
