    I'm sure it ignites the hopes of the communist party....when the president appoints one of their own as Green Jobs Czar. Or when the president hangs a christmas ornament of a communist tyrant on their christmas tree.

    Communism doesn't appeal to many people, not even among the so called LEFT.

    Its premise is based on a goofy notion that somehow people will suddently give up greed and put the interests of the collective ahead of their own.

    Communism is as childishly appealing to people who don't understand basic human nature as objectivist libertarianism is to people who ALSO don't understand basic human nature.

    Both political philosophies expect people to become something that people are not capable of becoming.

    Your claim that communism isn't popular with lefties doesn't pass the laugh test.
    Democrats are all communists now. When did the fact that an idea is "goofy" ever stop lefties from believing in it? I mean, don't they believe that the instant someone goes to work for the government that he is no longer motivated by self interest?

    Your post is just another in an endless series of lefties trying to convince the public that they aren't really commies when anyone with a brain and two eyes in his head can see that they are.

    Darn. I was hoping this thread was going to be about the US Military finally startying to fly a red flag with the Stars & Stripes.

    For those of you who aren't into military history or flag etiquette, a plain red flag flying signifies that No Quarter will be given or expected in battle. No surrenders will be accepted and the troops flying it expect to fight to their own death rather than surrendering.

    A red flag was flown by General Santa Anna when the Mexican army attacked the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas. It was also very common to be seen flying on the masts of pirate ships.

    If you granted citizenship to the 40 million illegals, add their votes to the hispanics, blacks and whites currently on welfare, you would have a tough time defeating a platform that says all property belongs to the state and every body is entitled to an equal share.
