Agreed on that one. I'm not sure she's a Communist as much as a Socialist. For sure she's anti-America.

Yes, she advocates violent overthrow of the bourgeoisie political system by the proletariat and a wageless, moneyless society in which all work is for the state, voluntary, and unpaid, with goods rationed equally among the populace. Just look at her website, I've heard she even secretly has a Karl Marx beard.

ROFLMAO! Indeed.

I propose creating a fund to send all of these "Communist" and "Socialist" fearmongers for a two-week stay in Cuba to experience Communism/Socialism firsthand. And if they manage not to get themselves thrown into jail, they must report back on how any mainstream politician in America is promoting what they saw in Cuba.

If one of these leftists get voted in, we won't have to wait long to get a taste of Cuba. We won't have to go there. Especially if more liberals get in congress.

I frankly don't think any are communist but hillary and Obama profess alot of socialist ideas. But in the end they wouldn't really accomplish much in this divided country.

Really. So our store shelves are going to be empty, waitresses will earn more than doctors because they can get tips, electricity will be sketchy, people will be rounded up and thrown in prison for speaking against the government, and TV, radio, and the Internet will go through government filters? When do you foresee this all happening?

There is simply too much power concentrated in the hands of the corporate moguls. Its the opposite of big government communism- or is it?

Teddy Roosevelt- the last progressive republican broke the trusts and big business interests 100 years ago- he claimed they had gained too much power over ordinary Americans. The same could easily be said of today. Both Hillary and Obama are indeed populists and progressives in the image of TR- while McCain represents the past.
Trying to smear TR's legacy, eh?

There's not much difference between the Republicans and Democrats today; they both like to spend your money, increase the size of the Federal government, redistribute your wealth, and regulate everything that moves.

The Republicans have been hijacked by the neoconservatives and the party of JFK has been taken over by the socialists. Both like to spend your money on war; the war on "terror" or the war on capitalism, take your pick.

We are an at-will employment country; just as your employer can fire you at any time you are free to quit working there at any time. You are free to move anywhere in the country to seek employment at any company that may give such perks as a pension (I don't know anyone but government employees that receive a pension). Personally, I'd rather be able to go wherever I want to any company I want rather than have all of this regulated. What's this business about a "worker-clone class"? Rubbish. Stop reading Marx and start reading Jefferson a bit more.

90 Days after Hillary gets elected.

Let's hope that Obama can stop her.

This one is good, but I couldn't give the deserved rep point.
