Is Progressivism the New Communism?

I take it one step further. The whole Democratic Party is Communist. Just look at all the actions they have taken. What do they do? They make the Fed super strong and able to make your decisions for you. Is that not communism? They have worked very hard to put our country into an economic tailspin, housing bubble. Communism spreads by revolution. Communists have to destroy a country first before they rebuild it the way they want it. Sound familiar? Another characteristic of communism is that they will attack religion, the opiate of the people. Religious freedom, especially for Christians, must be attacked. They want our Constitution to be made insignificant and that is exactly what they are doing. Wake up people.

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...
