Yes, the 10 pillars of communism align with the core beliefs of the dems
No, they might be similar but there are minor differences
He who knows the least obeys the best.
It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late,
With long arrears to make good,
When the Saxon began to hate.
Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
Tell me something, what drew you to socialism? Did it seem like a cool thing to claim, or what's the story? Legit interest.
Every democrat should read the communist manifesto so that they can be familiar with the underpinnings of their ideology and at least speak intelligently about it. Just as, every conservative American should read the constitution so that they can similarly be intellectually armed with the work that underpins their ideology.
There used to be people in the United States who were openly communist. They mostly fomented their ideology in labor unions and schools. After the Cold War started and the big red scare, these people went underground. Now, the labor unions and schools veer heavily "democrat," in fact they form the backbone of the democratic party, steering it constantly to the left.... but never so much at one time to where the communist-weary public might turn on them.
Don't think for a minute, though, that if Nancy Pelosi had her way, America wouldn't move far to the left of even Europe.
