    Well of course. Communism is rooted in failure. Go research the text book example relative to road crews in Russia before the break up of USSR. They would lay say, 2 miles of road a day with a fixed salary. Once the great Ronald Regan convinced them to "bring down this wall" a mutant form of capitalism evolved in Russia.

    The road crews were then paid based on 'performance'

    Guess what? Workers started laying miles of road a day like never before. The harder they worked, the more they were paid

    Communism is an epic fAiL

    The Democratic Socialists of America recently got a major boost when one of their endorsed candidates, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, beat out incumbent Democrat Rep. Joe Crowley in a primary last Tuesday for New York’s 14th Congressional District.

    This far-left political organization previously made headlines when leadership from their Iowa State campus chapter encouraged people to shoot president Trump and when leadership from their University of Georgia Chapter called for the execution of house GOP members. Now multiple DSA leaders are publicly endorsing communism, an ideology responsible or the oppression, incarceration, and murder of tens of millions of people.

    Here is the original tweet from Olivia Katbi Smith, who is the co-Chair of the Portland DSA chapter:

    As a DSA chapter co-chair I just wanna set the record straight for a minute: communism is good

    Lemme guess --- they did all this on some wet trolley tracks in Wisconsin, amirite?

    Isn't this the House candidate that wan a primary a week or so ago? In Queens?

    What part of Queens is "Tennessee" in?

    Then there's this:

    Communism is an economic system. Economic systems don't "murder" anybody. Perhaps you have a link demonstrating that they do. Perhaps you left it on some wet trolley tracks in Wisconsin.

    "As a DSA chapter co-chair I just wanna set the record straight for a minute: communism is good"
