Notice the similarities between this ideology... and my next post ?
-----------------------------------

The brilliance of the 111th United States House of Representatives with a Democratic majority is not to be denied contemporarily or in the perspective of history. This body of the 111th Congress did its job, over a locked arm phalanx of obstruction from the Republicans, to pass 400 plus bills rejecting Bush, the GOP and renewing the promise of America that had been grievously undermined by Republicans. The U.S. Senate, hidebound by old boy club chair rules and a grotesquely over empowered Republican minority, barely even passed wind in two years.

The Republicans in the House and Senate both ascribed to a two year plan to prevent anything from being done to benefit the country, even now, down to the START treaty. Every single effort to assuage or temper the impact of the Republican Greatest Recession on the people was blunted and turned away by a GOP callous and indifferent to "promoting the public welfare," an act in multiple parts unprecedented since the Great Depression.

Now, in the last days of the Great GOP and Bush Rejection of 2006-08, the Republicans still have the one bargaining piece that has been used and reused with merciless and contemptuous forethought for two years. That bargaining piece is to hold the poorest Americans and those who were damaged most by their regressive policies hostage to their agenda of retaking government. They, to a man, refused to "promote the general welfare" in even the slightest way, in order to extinguish in the American people the last hope that government would or could do anything to "promote the general welfare." They have vacated the "welfare" clause and forsaken their oath to do what is right, in favor of doing what most benefits themselves. In the 112th, Republicans bode to comport themselves no better.

Now through Dec. 31st is the last act of the resolute 111th Congress. With a President who has acceded to Republican control of a Senate through which no measure can be passed that unambiguously benefits the public, it is up to the House, that body closest to the people, to lend an ear and hear what it is the people are driven in desperation to proclaim in a majority voice.

The voice of the majority is clear and its message is succinct. We can no longer be quieted by the crumbs from the table of the rich.

More, given a choice that the rich should further feast so that we can have more crumbs or starve, we would, in what is our last vestige of pride and courage, rather starve.

For we know full well that the rich never have enough and hoard even the drippings of fat from their orgy of greed. We know that they will not share even as much as the opportunity for us to make our own way.

We are tithed not by government but by the greed of those who have perverted our government with money to erect monopolies and immunities from prosecution for wrong doing.

We are done with the rich.

We need them no more and they and all their wealth be damned!

All the math says we are right to damn the rich anyway. If ALL the Bush tax cuts expire for everyone it affects the lower and most desperate HALF of Americans hardly at all. It's the price of a pair of shoes or a dinner out until your income bracket reaches $100 thousand anyway. For a lousy $100 a month we're to be obeisant to a Republican party and its rich patrons who are indifferent and even hostile to lower and middle class Americans getting ahead and getting a raise at all. To leverage, through government, low wages and poor benefits and working conditions for wage earners is the raison d'être of the GOP. They do so to the detriment of the public, the economy and the country. They do so for sole benefit to the personal wealth of a few short sighted traitors to the egalitarian creed of America.

We realize or sense that the economy will not improve if left to the Republicans. It never has, not ever for the middle class. We know that the economy is in decline and that the only way out of that decline is for the working class to make more money and so we reject the trickle down politics of the GOP. We just do not seem to have faith, anymore, that the Democrats are any different than the GOP.

You, the House of Representatives of the 111th Congress, have the power to restore national confidence in Democrats as the party of the people. We will accept a shared sacrifice to save the country. We will not accept further sacrifice from ourselves to give money to freeloading bastards that run and ruin our economy, destroy our jobs for profit, or fire us in order to hire cheaper labor off shore. It is our country and we will sacrifice for it if we know that sacrifice has some hope of restoring America to prosperity and pride.

Vote down the Obama/McConnell tax compromise and then pass a bill condemning the extortion of Congress by a Republican minority which holds the lives and "general welfare" of Americans in contempt and hostage for the benefit of its minority of the lard assed rich. Then pray that we may find the spark of decency that will give comfort to those unfortunate unemployed that have been so viciously exploited by the vermin Republicans that visited this calamity on our land.

CPUSA Constitution

PREAMBLE

The Communist Party USA is the party of and for the U.S. working class, a class which is multiracial, multinational, and unites men and women, young and old, employed and unemployed, organized and unorganized, gay and straight, native-born and immigrant, urban and rural, and composed of workers who perform a large range of physical and mental labor—the vast majority of our society. We are the party of the African American, Mexican American, Puerto Rican, all other Latino American, Native American, Asian American, and all racially and nationally oppressed peoples, as well as women, youth, and all other working people.

The living standards of workers and the natural environment on which life depends are under constant attack due to the drive for maximum profits inherent in capitalism. Our party fights for jobs and economic security, a decent and rising standard of living, peace, justice, equality, a sustainable environment, gay rights, health care, education, affordable housing, the needs of seniors, democracy, and a fulfilling life for everyone, with socialism as our goal. Only through the abolition of the capitalist system and the socialist reorganization of society can exploitation of human beings by others, and the evils of oppression, war, racism, environmental degradation, and poverty be ended. We seek to build a socialist society which puts people and nature before profits.

Our country’s founding Revolution exalted the ideals of equality, justice, and democracy, of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all. Marxists have long hailed its progressive significance, while recognizing its historical limitations, chief of which was the failure to abolish slavery. The Communist Party today upholds the continuing struggle to realize these ideals. The revolutionary democratic traditions of the United States call for radical change when injustice, inequality, and exploitation become unbearably oppressive. This legacy gives us, the working class and its allies, the right and responsibility to build a new society. We advocate an expanded Bill of Rights to guarantee religious, political, and individual freedoms, but also freedom from poverty, hunger, joblessness, and racism.

Racism plays a particularly destructive role in the life of our country, imposing severely impoverished living standards on tens of millions of the specially oppressed, and lowering the quality of life for all workers. Racism harms all workers, obstructing the development of working-class consciousness, driving wedges in class unity to divert attention from class exploitation, and creating extra profits for the capitalist class. The Communist Party is unalterably opposed to all manifestations of racism, national oppression, U.S. national chauvinism, male supremacy, homophobia, and anti-Semitism, which are used by the enemies of progress to divide the working class and people’s forces. The principles of democracy, equality, justice, and class self-interest require a joint fight against all expressions of racism and gender oppression. We fight for full equality for all who suffer from racial, national, and gender oppression as an essential aspect of the unity that is basic to all social progress.

Issues of war and peace, wealth and poverty, ecology and pollution, racial and national division, gender discrimination, and international conflict are all connected to class struggle, and have common features on which to build unity among peoples, organizations, and coalitions. The working class as the necessary leading force along with the other core forces—all racially and nationally oppressed groups, women, and youth—can build a movement that also includes the many streams of our working people—such as family farmers, small business owners, and the self-employed—who united together have the power to make fundamental progressive change.

Peace is essential for the survival of the planet and humanity. The pursuit of world domination to further enrich capitalists has resulted in destructive wars, environmental devastation, and massive poverty. The Communist Party fights for solidarity among the working class and peoples of all lands and supports their pursuit of self-determination over their own lands and economies. In the spirit of working-class internationalism, the Communist Party builds the closest bonds with Communist and Workers Parties throughout the world.

Founded in Chicago in 1919, the Communist Party of the United States has an outstanding history in the struggles for peace, democratic rights, racial and gender equality, economic justice, union organization, and international solidarity. Our Party is organized on the principle of democratic centralism, combining maximum democratic discussion and decision-making with maximum unity of will and action, ensuring our ability to play a strong organizing role in the class struggle. We focus our efforts on increasing our ability to organize millions into struggle, fighting anti-communism as a divisive weapon of the capitalist class. With Marxism-Leninism guiding our actions, the Communist Party strives to build the broadest unity against global capitalist imperialism now headed by U.S. imperialism, for immediate gains and reforms that benefit working people, and for a progressive democratization of the government, the economy, and society of our country on the road to and after winning socialism.

With pride in our past and confidence in our future, we hereby establish this Constitution of the Communist Party of the United States America.

Communism in theory, is pretty good. Communism in practice is a complete failure. Even China couldn't make it work, they are state-capitalist now.

To succeed, laziness cannot be accepted. Also, everyone from the garbage man to the gynecologist would have to make the exact same pay. The budget would be severely limited by the weakness of their currency, and the need for imported goods. So, basically for it to work, you have to control the world, and eliminate currency and any other monetary value. Virtually impossible.

I don't know where you re going with all that... but I was simply drawing attention to the message in near unison -of the progressive party and the communist party. It is especially apparent if you read the posted comments at the bottom of the article from Huffington post, patriots.

That's not to say I disagree with you...

Articles like this show there is an inreconcilable difference growing between two philosopies of governing in this country and that seems to be leading to a second Civil War. One side will be fighting with guns, SUVs, and ATVs. The other will be using their Priuses, Windmills, and scathing essays.

I never read an entire article from the huffington post before but I don't think I've ever read a more biased news article, there is no leftist slant but a all out, full tilt, black and white, completely biased to the point that I had to double check and make sure that it was not the onion, I'm surprised the author forgot to mention that Republicans also trample on flowers and murder puppies, worship Hitler, burn down unemployment offices, exhausting greenhouse gas emissions as they belch their putrid hate speech into the hallow minds of their uneducated morbid minions as they stare blankly into the eyes of their domineering master's eyes and an ever expanding portal from which concentrated evil emanates into the world!!!


....where was going with this...oh yeah the huffingthon post sucks! Yeah!
