The word "forward" has been a political battle cry on the left for more than a century.

Funny cartoon I've see: Obama standing on a cliff with a crowd of lemings behind him... he points to the air and says, "Forward!".

What these knumbskulls don't get is that "forward" depends on what direction you're facing. In the case of this country - the wrong direction.

"Forward" to Communism -

Communism usually involves economic depression, mass slavery, food shortages, and bullets to the back of the head for the opposition. Oh Boy, I can't wait to see how this one ends.
