    History suggests otherwise. Actually it doesn't suggest it. It slaps you in the face with it.

    Isn't it illegal to be a communist in the US?

    Oh. I'd heard that the Communist Party was against the law for advocating the overthrow of the US government.

    Lets not forget about Mormons. I think they probably came the closet to realizing a true religous communist society...and that was here in the US.

    It's not illegal to advocate the overthrow the government. We get a chance to overthrow them every two years, it's called voting. If it was illegal to advocate overthrowing the government, then only incumbents could run for office.

    If left uncontested to push corpocracy to the extreme, Kapitalist America will become the worlds poster child for tyrannical government. Of course they will call their new capital in Connecticut Reagangrad and their policies Reaganomics. And there will be purges.

    Well, advocating a change of lawmakers and governors is not the same as advocating an overthrow of the government but I'm probably wrong either way. Just that I heard that the Communist Party was illegal but a brief, careless google makes no mention of it so I guess I heard wrong.
