I'm a 'Commie', now.
As you know, I am an unabashed conservative. I like small government, self sufficiency, the sovereignty and strength of the USA, strong defense, capitalism, individual ownership of property - all that jazz.
I don't want to wear a 'Mao Suit' or a 'Lenin Suit'. I don't want to keep a picture of any 'Dear Leader' in my house. I don't like gulags - not one tiny bit. I don't mind paying for goods and services. I don't want to be told how much of a certain food that I should be allowed to buy. I don't think that 'it takes a village'.
I think that the accusation of 'commie' that was hurled at me was unbelievably ignorant, but it doesn't surprise me. Most lefties that I talk to have NO CLUE! It's a shame that in this day and age, after all of the prosperity and wealth that we have enjoyed in this country for decades, people still don't get a decent education. They don't know the difference between a small government conservative and a communist. They don't know that a small government conservative is not a fascist. They don't understand that statism is totalitarianism is communism is fascism and conservatives hate them all.
Here is double YUCK!:
