: Please stop comparing Communism to democracy.

We're not. We are comparing capitalism with alternatives - such as communism.

Any first year economics textbooks would tell you that you can't legitimately compare an economic system (communism) and a political system ( democracy).

So? But then perhaps it is YOU who are confused. Are you equating capitalism with democracy?

: Unless you want to end up like another Russia, get your facts straight BEFORE you start the grass-roots takeover, please.

I don't want to be unkind, but for Christ sake - go read a book!
Or better yet, since you seem to be an "expert" on the Communist Manifesto, you could pick a paragraph or two and point out all the "factual" errors. (that is, if you've actually read it)
