Sheila Jackon Lee's district is one of the poorest in Houston. Is that why she gets elected or because she gets elected?

Couldn't tell ya but I know this:

Whatever it takes, she needs to be UNELECTED ASAP!

A communist -is- a socialist, a nazi -is/was- a socialist, any democrat is a socialist overt or covert.

This a good place to insert this factoid:
There are three words NOT FOUND in the U.S. Constitution, by design, by the founding fathers.

Democrat,Democracy, and Democratic.......

And America don't know why they did that...
(a secret) because Democracy is MOB rule.

(another secret) It's not easy to take the democrat from the democratic party(RINO), it's harder still to take the democrat out of the democrat.

"There are still enough of us out here who would boot them out of office if they revealed too much of their true stripe."

Would were that were so. There are so many dissident non-thinkers in our country now, thanks to liberalism, that the voting public is pretty much eating out of the hands of these subversive socialists.

How else would you explain the election of BSers like the Clintons?

Congressional Caucus members, I would contend, should actually be called Socialists rather than Democrats.

What's the difference?

Black conservative ping

If you want on (or off) of my black conservative ping list, please let me know via FREEPmail. (And no, you don't have to be black to be on the list!)

Extra warning: this is a high-volume ping list.

Socialists are apt to support such things as international standing armies, an international tax, the transfer of American capital to third world dictators, and the surrender of congressional responsibilities to the UN, the WTO, the IMF

I'm confused here. Most socialists I thought were opposed to free trade and thus the WTO and IMF. It wasn't conservatives rioting in Seattle.

Just for accuracy, you should know that the group these people belong to -the "international"-was denounced by Lenin which lead to the Comintern.

Thanks for that list of socialist organizations. I can't stand groups like Amnesty International - always meddling in countries like China and Burma. Or Doctors Without Borders, who cunningly donate their medical skills in impoverished countries. Who knows what could happen if either of those groups were at all successful in their aims. Stan Kubrick

I disagree. Doctors Without Borders is a wonderful private charitable organization. I know less about Amnesty International, but there is nothing wrong with advocating basic human rights.

You, I gather, would prefer an ineffective governmental behemoth to "solve" all the worlds ills.

Yes, I was aware of that. The socialist were a real problem in Lenin's eyes. It seems that Lenin's view of "practical" communism required skipping the socialism phase.

I agree that cut and paste is easy. The creative part is how the whole collection is 'balanced' on the founders of Socialism.

We need to eliminate at least one more. Rep. David Bonior will be leaving the House of Representatives, due to that he ran for Governor of Michigan, but he lost in the primary to Atty General Jennifer Granholm.

If you have a Saturday afternoon to spare, go to her district and volunteer in the oppositions headquarters, volunteer to take yardsigns out to be put up! Volunteer to answer the phone. I'm sure you'll think of a job you'dlike to do!!

Hmm, are half of America's women represenatives a part of this organization? I counted around 20 of the 59 as being women, a much higher ratio considering their much smaller presence in congress.

Freedom loving Americans would be well advised to keep a close eye on socialist Congressmen. While they may talk like the rest of us, especially when sojourning in their respective districts, they operate from a different paradigm.

They do indeed operate from a different paradigm--one based upon a succession of lies and delusions. But they do not talk like me. Since, I turned 15 1/2, I have rejected every premise of Socialism, and all the delusional verbage that goes with them. (See The Lies Of Socialism.)

Thank you for posting this list of the enemy. There are few if any surprises on it. But again, that is because these people do not talk like most of us. I only wish there was a legal way to throw the lot of them out of our country. Their whole creed is a denial of what America is all about.

14 Heartland traitors, to match Cali's 13:

David Bonior – Michigan
John Conyers – Michigan
Sherrod Brown – Ohio
Stephanie Tubbs-Jones – Ohio
Marcy Kaptur – Ohio
Dennis Kucinich – Ohio
Julia Carson – Indiana *hanging my Hoosier head in shame*
William "Lacy" Clay – Missouri
Danny Davis – Illinois
Lane Evans – Illinois
Luis Gutierrez – Illinois
Jesse Jackson Jr. – Illinois
Bobby Rush – Illinois
Jan Schakowsky – Illinois

I believe that every one of them represents densely populated urban areas.

>>The socialist were a real problem in Lenin's eyes. It seems that Lenin's view of "practical" communism required skipping the socialism phase<<

Not at all.

Lenin simply said the truth-the people would never, never adopt socialism of their own free will, and that furthermore, once socialism was put in place by revolution, the people would work ceaselessly to undermine it.

Therefore, Lenin reasoned (correctly, see "What is to Be Done?") that Red terror before, during, and after the revolution would be required to whip the people along, to get them to act against their will, against their culture, against their religion, and against human nature.

Comunists are socialists who mean it.

Yes, so is Ron Paul. My challenge is to match the Red 59 with 59 non-socialists.

I don't think it can be done.

Bonior and Conyers are giveaways. As is Jackson from Illinois. But the Ohioans surprised me. I've always given the Buckeyes credit for more intelligence than that.

Notice there are none from Iowa, Nebraska, or South Dakota. However, with Harkin, Wellstone, and Daschle in the Senate, we can't claim complete exemption from the disgrace.

Apparently our elected "capitalist" representatives and senators, who don't really represent us, don't have the courage to shine the light of day on these socialists. Doing so in this forum is good, but it should be spread to many forums to really spread the word. Well Done.

...They will continue to refer themselves, and the nation as a democracy. In their ideology, fascism is what they can get away with, for now. Their next step, you've said it. A Freeconstituent Republic will not be tolerated...

In a free capitalist society, this elitist enrichment also occurs, but at least the people are free to pursue their own best interests instead of having that interest subjugated to the state and ultimately the elite who control it.

Also, there are hungry want to be's who use the capitalist system to create new wealth for themselves. Elites in a capitalist system often don't stay at the top very long before they are replaced by new elites. Elites in a dictatorship have the ability to thwart potential competitors. Unfortunately, this leads to stagnating societies and economies.

I wholeheartedly agree, My use of the term "practical" Communism was just a very abridged (and inexact) form of what you said.

This REALLY deserves to be posted again---Tell your friends:

The All Time Chilling Quote Of The Day


"The American People will never knowingly adopt Socialism,
but under the name of Liberalism
they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program
until one day America will be a Socialist Nation
without ever knowing how it happened----"
Who on earth would publicly say such a thing,you may ask yourself?
Norman Thomas, Six-Time Socialist Party Presidential Candidate
and One of the Founders of the ACLU.

Sure, my only point was that "practical" communism doesn't give a hoot about the so called socialist phase of the revolution. Practical communism is just state sponsored terror, repression and death to bring about the revolution.

Theoretical communism is bascally a circle jerk by a bunch of lefties to see who can come up with the best ideas to get the state to give someone else your property.

Yes, I'm being flippant.

On the extreme left wing of the Democratic Party, The Progressive Caucus is affiliated with the Democratic Socialists of America, which, in turn, is the American affiliate of the Socialist International.

All the more reason to vote Republican. Throwing our votes away on fringe single-digit candidates will not right this wrong.
