    There are those who want to take the Democratic Party to the Socialist Democrat Party and I'm betting..........straight from there into Communism. Bernie is a good starter for that, but he is old. The new blood will be dumb kids like Ocasio-Cortez. I am surprised that Julian Castro hasn't made a national footprint yet. The Democratic Party will turn towards Communism as soon as they can get rid of people like Hillary, Pelosi, Biden, Schumer and those oldies who might tolerate some Socialism but won't take their party to Communism like Ocasio-Cortez and other young ones want to do. Maybe Julian Castro is more of a Socialist too...... I don't know. Interesting to watch though.

    It's a lot more interesting than watching those who are still moaning and rolling around on the floor unable to accept Hillary's loss. That's just sort of nauseating.

    All of that said, I think Ocasio-Cortez is a trial balloon to see how far the idea of the Democrats going Communist will get.

    The Russians like communists. Remember, until Hillary Clinton decided she could make more money starting a war with Russia, the left absolutely loved the Soviets. They had a decades-long affair.

    The whole point of the Yeltsin/Putin regimes was that the attacks on communism that had been covert under Stalin and his successors came out into the open and became blatant.

    This whole thing with socialism and communism has to do with the poor quality of our schools these days. Some 65 years ago when we were studying the different types of gov't I recall being told that on paper the socialistic and communistic gov'ts were the most ideal but are unworkable because of the people factor. Maybe they're trying to prepare us for when we are totally controlled by AI.o_O

    As long as people are involved there will be different levels of greed, corruption and sadism (because of the amount of control), involved. Perhaps that's not being taught anymore.

    It’s not backwards. Why do you think Putin’s regime is so vicious? It has to be to force capitalism on an unwilling populace.

    It's really that simple. It's the same reason there was a river of Russian money flowing into the Clintons' slush funds for decades.

    Indeed. Lets see.. does it help them stay in power when their people see us living like kings, going where and when we want... and they stand in bread lines?

    Hmm. Not sure. There's numerous allegations of Russian meddling. Perhaps you've heard same. So, you figure no, can't be Russia?

    Keep in mind, is the byline most everywhere so it stands to reason.

    Soviet/Democrat collusion has a 50+ year history.

    The Russian people are not communists....they may have suffered under some lunatic Marxist regimes but they themselves are like any other group of people. Desirous of life, happiness and the ability to provide for their families.

    If Putin wasn't ruthless....he wouldn't be alive...period.
    Putin is also a businessman....his ideas for the future of Russia in general are solid IMO.

    She is a very attractive young woman..............and she has proved to be a complete "empty suit" when pressed on anything she claims to believe.

    They may not be communists subjectively but they know what capitalism is and that they hate it. That’s why the government has to kill jounrtnalists and imprison dissidents in order to force it on them.
