Marxism and the Repubs?

"From each according to his ability, to each according to his need" or read as "a person should contribute to society to the best of his or her ability and consume from society in proportion to his or her needs."

That sounds like, work hard and don't feed off of the system and conserve. Sounds like a tenant that both dems and repubs would agree on right?

But thats a Karl Marx idea... damn that Marxism! I guess working hard and not sucking off the government teet isn't a mantra of the repubs.

Dammit I'm wrong again...

Socialism and Repubs?

"He who does not work, neither shall he eat."

Being a "socialist" idea, its funny hearing the repubs telling people "they can't have anymore unemployment insurance, just get a job." Sounds to me that our current system is the antithesis of that socialist idea; charity, food stamps, healthcare. If the dems are to fit their socialist title that is being forced on them they would have to abide by these tenants then;
-workplace right and protections
-health protection
-care in old age and sickness,

Just to name a few. Oh wait, people wanting and caring about socialist/non-socialist ideals... could it be that people are not a dichotomy and don't fit into other peoples molds? A repub wanting all those things listed above... but that makes them...
