    It seems that the leader of the US Communist Party, along with other leftists, is upset with Rep. West, though why he would feel this way is open to question.

    Wouldn't the head of the US Communist Party be proud to have 80 or so Communists in Congress, to show that Americans are finally on the right track? Shouldn't the left be pleased if this were so? Optimistic anyway that they are finally making progress?

A strong military is a deterrent to invasion, and should not be used to invade sovereign nations in order to promote our political objectives.

    I would even go as far to say that the Democratic Party's Mantra of using political power instead of military power to resolve differences outside our borders is correct.
    There would be no political power without the military power to back it up.

    I didn't say get rid of our military, I just said move them from outside of our borders to inside.

    And that would not effect American political power?

    Of course it would. I am assuming you see it as a weakening, where I would see it as a strengthening. I realizing that this is off topic, and I will happily debate it the correct area of the forum with you, as soon as I figure out where that is.

    The role of the US military is not part of the question.

    In broad terms, the US military is in fact a social program. It's funded by tax payer money,and it serves the overall community (in this case the entire country).

    Just as public education is tax payer funded, and it serves the overall community.

    I do think it's quite pathetic to equate social programs with communism.
    It does explain a lot though if people will openly make that jump.

    Well being that the goal of socialism is communism. Here is the list released by the Socialist Party of America...This was in 2010 and I'm sure it's grown since then.

    American Socialists Release Names of 70 Congressional Democrats in Their Ranks | The Gateway Pundit

    Not really sure why this is so hard to believe since people like Bernie Sanders and Maxine Waters admits to being a socialist...I'm sure there are plenty more.

    the implied message you just gave is that communism is workable, and we need to move in that direction to fix our problems.

    Remember that Ubama was a member of a communist party called the "New Party" in 95 and 96.
