Point about McCarthy: His method and procedures were heavy handed and maybe his numbers were not solid, but in the end McCarthy was right. There were Communists in out government. You would be very naive to think otherwise, expecially in th 1950"s. Want to be an ostrich with your head in the sand? Then there are no traitors in the CIA, FBI or Military. There are no terrorists in the USA from the Middle East and there are no home grown terrorists either. Take off the rose colored glasses. There are alot of countries that would like to see America fail; see freedom fail. Vigilance!

In politics, truth-telling can get you into trouble, even if you stumble upon it by accident. Just ask Rep. Allen West (R-FL).

West is feeling the heat for a pregnant pause he took during a town hall meeting after he was asked "What percentage of the American legislature do you think are card-carrying Marxists or International Socialists?"

"It's a good question," West responded, "I believe there's [sic] about 78 to 81 members of the Democrat Party who are members of the Communist Party. (Long pause) "They don't actually hide. It's called the Congressional Progressive Caucus." The left became unhinged.

Obviously West...
