    Dang, no WONDER they are having such a hissy fit about Rand Paul being elected! Matter and anti matter, socialist and antisocialist.... sort of a natural chemical reaction.....

    Cob, what I know is that Mel Watt came up with the water down of the audit of the federal reserve, which, while defeated in favor of Ron Paul's audit in the House, was used to sell out the audit in the Senate by Sanders. I'd rather socialists just called themselves that. I'm not afraid of words, but subterfuge confuses what people are really saying.

    The Socialist Party of America has no connection to American Socialist Voter, and Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is yet a third group. Perhaps you shouldn't put too much trust in bloggers with an ax to grind.

    I'm sure if we included all the 'closet' members, we would be over 100.

    This must be targeted at people that have a fear of words.

    I don't know if there's any truth to that, but if it is, then good.

    I have no shame in admitting that I am not a capitalist.
