    I conducted a poll on this topic and found that no one on this board, Republican or Democrat, believes in or supports communism. This continues to be an untruth.

    No one I've read on this board has openly said they believe in communism and only a few have openly said they believe in socialism but a whole lot of people are clamoring for it, whether they recognize it or not, thinking it will save us from all our woes. Their words betray them even if they wish to name it something else. I think I hear Nikita's shoe pounding!

    I understand, progressive Republicans. It is the leftward movement by certain Republicans.... How can anything left of liberal be labeled anything but communistic, or at least hyper socialistic.

    Why are democrats running away from the more accurate descriptive terms secular, liberal, leftist, or liberal left. There is nothing progressive about the democrat party. Socialism has been shown to be a failed political/economic system so a better description of democrats would be secular retro-democrats.

    It worked well in the Scandinavian countries until they started letting foreigners in.

    When I was in college, there were rules against PDA. Of course, it stood for Public Display of Affection. :D

    Times have changed. Way back in Jefferson's day the Democrat-Republican party believed in limited Federal government. Now the democrats are foaming-at-the mouth-socialists and sadly some Republicans are playing "shut mouth".

    If the Democrats are doing this, they are doing it for the same reasons that the Republicans are trying to put some distance between themselves and the terms "right-wing", "neo-conservative", "de-regulation", "laissez-faire," and, possibly, "fascist". Both parties are trying to re-work their public images in the face of the economic crisis. It is important for all Americans to hold their collective congressional feet to the fire. The first thing they need to do is to rescind the recent pay raise they voted for themselves. It would be better if they voted themselves a pay cut, say, 10% to 15%. It really wouldn't matter much, but it would go some to show the American people that they are serious about solving the problems. Also, they need to cut out the weekend trips home to campaign for re-election. They need to stay in Washington and at least appear to be working on getting us out of this hole.

    You don't have a clue what Republicans are doing or are concerned about.

    I would have thought just the opposite, it is the conservatives that want to keep things as they've always been. They are the strict constitutionalist who disagree that it can be amended to fit modern days and times. If change is to happen, they want it to happen by miracle since they don't want Government to combine our resources and focus in any new direction.

    This is what I mean when I question conservatives and the idea of change.

    Do you mean that the last eight years of Republican administration is not indicative of "what Republicans are doing or are concerned about"? If not, then I need some instruction as to where I should look to find out "what Republicans are doing or are concerned about".

    Naw, they took Bush's republican party membership card. He acted too liberal for most so he got the boot.

    Can you define the difference between fascists and communists?
