* How cool would it have been if his reply was "There are about 80 Marxists in Congress. They sit around on Tuesday mornings in committee and watch old episodes of 'You Bet Your Life'."
No, Marxism–Leninist policies under Stalin killed lots of people. And the Holdomor was driven not out of ideology, but out of wanting to populate land with ethnic Russians after the Ukrainians were starved out. Communism failed because @ssholes like Stalin used it as an excuse to be a bloody tyrant. And then we go and fight, unjustly, legit communists like Ho Chi Minh who wanted U.S. support, independence, and self-determination, and nothing to do with China/Russia but did so because we refused to lean on France, something we could have done at the time since we were bankrolling their reconstruction after WWII. The guise of socialism killed no-one, and democratic socialism has worked really well in Europe.Whatever you say about guys like West, communism (often under the guize of socialism) killed way more people in the last century than any other political movement, often via starvation. "Spreading the wealth around" sure sounds a lot like this failed ideology to me.
And just a mere couple weeks ago, at an Occupuke Wall Street event he said: "I get up every morning thinking, today I'm gonna make a difference. Today I'm gonna end capitalism."
But maybe flag desecration and the destruction of our economic system is not crazy or radical to some folks.
Is it simple ignorance or just stupidity (intentional or unintentional) that said posters don't realize the term was hijacked by the left in the 20's after the country got really turned off by any politician who was and called them self 'Progressive'?

Goodnight Rossana Arquette whereever you are.
Still the thing that Obama sat on a board with him on, education reform, is what Ayers later won Chicago Citizen of the Year for and was also honored by the Annenberg Foundation for. And I also found this article, also on Slate.
The Bill Ayers that Barack Obama and I worked with was no "domestic terrorist." - Slate Magazine
Per the budget and what the left labels, in Ryan's budget, radical. Your Dear leader mentioned a bunch of things besides medicare when discussing Ryan’s ‘radical’ plan. He spoke of cuts to government college hand outs, medical research, national parks, and even mentioned technology to make accurate weather forecasts which really brought the lulz.
Look at it this way and explain to me what is so ‘radical’ to Ryan’s budget?
Paul Ryan's budget will spend $3.6 trillion this year while bringing in $2.4 trillion and balances the budget in 2040. The Bamsters budget will spend $3.8 trillion in 2012 and bring in $2.5 trillion but will never balance the budget. They both spend abt $50K borrowed per second in 2012 or some astronomical/similar number
Yeah, thank god for Ryan's conservative card as I am sure the next 14 congresses will follow his road map.
Speaking of road maps; any "right winger" who attempts to come up with a centrally planned road map to prosperity should be tarred and feathered. ‘Conservatives’ defending this clown doesn’t have a leg to stand on.
Sure, taxes and regulation will never go away completely, and it's not the 1800s anymore, or even the 1900s. But they are too high, and this type of environment facilitates corruption among the political class and the poltically connected business class, at the expense of everyone else, literally.
