I was on my way home from work listening to Mark Levin when he started reading an article that caught my attention. The article was a call to action from what sounded like another typical left wing organization rallying the coalitions of power before the mid-term elections. All the standard Democratic talking points were touched upon; defeat the Tea Party/Republican movement or we will see continued tax breaks for the top richest two percent which will increase the deficit, privatization of social security, repeal of health care and financial reform, no extension of unemployment compensation, outsourced jobs, increased racism and severe limits to democratic rights…blah…blah…blah.
Then Mr. Levin revealed that the article he was reading was actually an article he pulled from the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) website. Now I know that the Democratic agenda and the CPUSA agenda have become somewhat entwined over the last 10 years. They both have very similar goals. Below is the actual article from their site.
By CPUSA Political Action Commission
If the grand alliance that elected Barack Obama comes out in full force to vote we can stop the Tea Party/Republican takeover, continue moving forward and push further for green jobs, union rights, health care and the safety net for the common good.
If voters fail to turnout, the Tea Party/Republican “Promise to America” alternative is clear: continued tax breaks for the top richest two percent which will increase the deficit, privatization of social security, repeal of health care and financial reform, no extension of unemployment compensation, outsourced jobs, increased racism and severe limits to democratic rights.
Momentum has been on the side of the Democrats in the last few days, but most races are too close to call. Hundreds of millions more dollars are being pumped into smear ads on TV, radio and internet in an attempt to defeat progressives and suppress voter turnout. The money is coming from shadow groups funded by unlimited corporate contributions.
When the choice before our country is made clear, voters can be convinced to go to the polls.

Take a good hard look at all the organizations that appear to support the communist agenda. The thing that baffles me the most is why Democrats would even associate themselves with the CPUSA. I mean it’s clear that the CPUSA was part of the “Grand Alliance” that propelled Barack Obama into the White House. The problem with this is that most Americans, at least for now, still have a very negative view of communism. I mean it wasn’t that long ago when the Soviet Union was referred to as the “Evil Empire.” It wasn’t that long ago when the Berlin Wall was torn down. It wasn’t that long ago that the Soviet Union was a very real threat to our liberties and freedom.
So the real question is when are Democrats going to distance themselves from this organization or is it already too late? And what I mean by being too late is have these far left organizations infiltrated and embedded themselves in the Democratic Party so deep that the party is now completely dependent on them? And furthermore what does all this mean for more conservative Democrats in the party? Is there room for them anymore or will they be driven out and the Democratic Party will become the Democratic Socialist Party of America? I’m not sure what the answers are. All I know is that those Democrats that are asleep, living under the illusion that their party is the same party of their grandparents had better wake up soon and critically examine where they stand. Do they stand with the communist or with free market, liberty loving Americans? Look I realize that conservatives and liberals disagree on a number of issues, but I think the one thing we can both agree on is communism is bad and should not be driving the debate in America.
They should be where they have always been; on the outside looking in.
Liberty forever, freedom for all!
