    To save the poll from influence, I will spare my opinion for the time being.

    Only if it's called something else with a conservative ring to it...like say....Christianity.

    I highly doubt it.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    If the Constitution is not upheld at all then anything is possible, but I think that it would be more likely that a Fascist Regime would be more probable than a Communist one.

    Extremely unlikely I would say. In any event, a Communit USA would no longer be the USA since it would mean doing away with pretty much the whole US Constitution.

    Thats true, it wouldn't the USA anymore. It would be an authoritarian theocracy with all the communist bells and whistles. And since Jesus preached socialism....it would be an easy switch......if only it weren't for that darn constitution and separation of church and state.

    Actually, Jesus didn't preach socialism since he preached that His Kingdom was not of this world.

    Besides, Communists tend to very intolerant towards religion.

    Yes, but you have to die to get there. Is Christianity a religion of death? No, Jesus preached social justice for the poor here on earth.

    They can still call themselves communists.....all 50 or 60 of them. lol

    "....The Communist Party is not against religion, but instead regards positively religious people's belief in justice, peace and respectful relations among the peoples. To build good relations with supporters of religion, the party has its own Religious Commission..."
    Communist Party USA - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    What is the world coming to when communists have their own religious commission? I think that kinda shows how desperate they must be getting to even exist in the US. But, if they changed their name to something with a christian ring to it....like say.... faithers.........they'd probably get a lot more takers. Then they could start planting. By the time people realized they were communists in sheep clothing, it will either be too late or it won't matter.

    The idea of claiming that Christ espoused a particular ârty political ideology is ridiculous.
