Socialism

Is socialism on the rise in America?

Socialists are more at ease talking about their goals even if it is played off as "just a joke."

"I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won't hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover."

The comment - which came during a discussion of the economy - perked more than a few ears. It's unclear whether Perdue, a Democrat, is serious, but her tone was level and she asked others to support her on the idea.

Later Tuesday afternoon, Perdue's office clarified the remarks:

"Come on," said spokeswoman Chris Mackey in a statement. "Gov. Perdue was obviously using hyperbole to highlight what we can all agree is a serious problem: Washington politicians who focus on their own election instead of what's best for the people they serve." Source: Charlotte Observer

Where does the joking end and socialism begin? The next election will be interesting.

  3. Oh, I'll bet she was quite serious. Quadrupling down on stupid.

    The DEM congress has had since Jan 2007. oblabber has had since Jan 2011 - to make something good happen.

    The US government is not a vocational school. They've had their time at the controls, it is time to replace them with Results oriented people, as opposed to what we have, which are incompetent Aholes, that spend more time trying to figure out who to blame than get something done.
    Course, I never believed oblabber ever Wanted to advance America.
