Will California Become the First Official Communist State?
There are lots of people who believe that most of California is already a communist—or at the very least a socialist state. But, as yet, it isn’t “official”. However, Los Angeles and San Francisco already propose and vote for virtually every leftist concept currently known to humans, as they vigorously work toward developing new ones; or adding onto existing radical Marxist notions.
Both cities have firmly announced that they have no intention of following current federal immigration laws and are considered “safe haven cities” for illegal aliens. Even banners and billboards have proudly proclaimed the state’s new name: “Mexifornia”. It’s difficult, if not impossible, to think of any state that more completely embraces communist principles than does California. By comparison, even New York seems conservative!
San Francisco residents regularly hold anti-war, anti-Bush, anti-military parades (actually anti-everything US) and burn US flags in “semi-riots”—as they did when President Bush was reelected. More often than not, the police are told by San Francisco officials: “Hands off. Leave the ‘protestors’ alone”. California is also the home of the Cindy Sheehan anti-US and pro-communist type of being. Remember Sheehan’s recent comment, when she met with Venezuelan communist strongman leader Hugo Chavez? Sheehan gleefully and flamboyantly praised Chavez and slice-and-diced the US, when she said: “I admire President Chavez for his strength to resist the United States!” Sheehan is the new California type of gal! Note: Chavez is one of the same corrupt leaders (another is Iran’s tyrannical Islamo-fascist President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad) who have vowed to destroy the US. And, now radical Momma’ Cindy may even take on Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA)—for not being radical enough—and challenge her Senate post. In the leftist-indoctrinated State of California—“the Sheehan” just might win!
If California really does create many of the leftist viruses that vigorously spread to the rest of the country, as has been strongly suggested over the years, the Democrat Party truly has ended—once and for all. Soon, each and every other state’s Dem contingent will be firmly in the communist camp. Note: As most Democrat leaders seem to embrace anti-US policies (or at lest pretend they do in order to gain deep-coffers’ leftist funding), its “going communist” isn’t the stretch that it once was. Besides, they will now have California (or Mexifornia) to lead their steps over the cliff. As the Dem leaders (with appropriate “translations” consistently tell us: “As long as you keep the money rollin’ in, we’ll be on whatever side you want us to be!”
California’s all-leftist-Democrats-all-the-time statements beg the question: “Isn’t it time for the Dem leaders of California to finally announce their true ideology?” The answer, of course: “Sure it is!” Democrats really must change the name of their political party. For some time now, along with the ACLU—the Dems’ legal wing—Democrats have been following the principles of the “Communist Goals” for the US as written into the Congressional Record in 1963. At least then the voters would know the real choices presented to them. The Dems would finally be able to move away from their current lackluster and nonsensical stated ‘programs’ for the US, which include only “we can do better” and “just say NO to everything Republican propose” and provide them with some actually defined goals to pursue. And they wouldn’t have to do anything more than printing them out! Note: For Dem leaders, who seem to have developed an exceedingly robust distaste for anything pertaining to actually developing any proposals for the country, this is an easy and simple way to express their true intent. There is no charge to you, Ms. Pelosi and Mr. Reid. In the true spirit of coming together, I present this as a gratis offering. Conservatives truly are a compassionate group.
