Senator in Taxachussetts? Based on the article, the GOPe would call JFK a Tea Party wacko bird and do everything possible to marginalize him if they couldnt beat him, a la Senator Ted Cruz.
That was my point. The democratic party today is a step away from communism.
I’d say the Democrat Party is more fascist, not communist. Democrats are the party of big business and the wealthy. For all their talk about taxing the rich, they don’t confiscate wealth so much as direct how it’s acquired and used. There are no shortage of very, very rich Democrats.
The GOPe, btw, is much of the same. They, like the Democrats, collude with big business against the rights of common citizens. The so called “Tea Party” is far more populist than either the GOP or Democrats.
“That was my point. The democratic party today is a step away from communism.”
Listening to Bill DeBlasio (probably NYC’s next mayor), I think we can safely say they’ve taken that step. I don’t see any Dems distancing themselves from his rhetoric; in fact, he climbed even further in the polls after his honeymoon in Cuba and work with the Sandinistas in Nicaragua were exposed.
