Why do people think that America is being taken over by communism?

People seem to genuinely believe communists from some non-existent secret government communism agency (or space aliens, or some other shyte) have invaded the U.S. government, and use it to justify absolutely stupid ideas (like outsourcing companies participating in job creation, rich people not being taxes generating revenue, absolutely self-contradictory ideas) and it's like some kind of pop-culture thing, even though it's not popular?

I also have a second question - apparently Sarah Palin is part of some kind of intelligence committee. How is that possible?

Update:

I agree with Ash. Propaganda seems to be popular.

    Stupid and/or indoctrinated people who actually believe for example that the health care act that requires people to buy insurance on the open market from the private corporation of their choice is socialist.

    Or that making a loan and buying shares in a car company which are being repaid and sold on the open market is a form of socialism.

    Probably due to the years of propaganda fed to us americans, many just swallow it instead of seeking truth.

    Obama has nationalized General Motors & Health Care.

    Next he will nationalize college education & energy production.

    That's a pretty good start in my book.

    Palin is just desperate, even Cheney called her a big mistake.

    It's not, just yet, but Obamacare is a good start.
