Communists make it clear that they support the Democrats

by editor on November 11, 2010

Call us old fashioned, but we still think communism is a bad thing, a political philosophy responsible for more deaths and more misery than any other “ism” in human history.

"I'm Josef Stalin and I approve this message."

So, naturally, American commies are terribly disappointed that the Democrats didn’t do better in last week’s elections.

As election results roll in and the Republican party notches up a great victory for reaction, many people will probably ask, “How did this happen here?” How could an electorate fired up for progressive change just two years ago fall flat on its face? What did the Democratic Party do to lose the overwhelming support it received in the last election cycle?

Many will say that it is because fantastic amounts of money were unleashed to support the hysterical theatrics of the ultra-right as embodied in the Tea Party movement. This is, of course, correct…

However, there were some other factors that made it easier for the right wing to do their dirty work…Anti-communism has been unleashed once again through the voice of hysterical pundits and this has served to confuse the working people of this country. Anyone who falls to the left of Karl Rove on the political spectrum has been branded a “socialist” and many people fall for this since they don’t have a clue about what socialism really means. Socialists have failed to meet this challenge and have made little effort to clarify what socialism actually means.

It’s just an interesting twist of fate, we think, that communists should support Barack Obama, a guy who’s appointed more czars than anyone in history.

Or it may just be another case of liberal linguistic gymnastics.

If anyone can explain for me the difference between Communists, Socialists, and Democrats, please enlighten me. I have been inquiring for years, and the more I research, the more I come to the conclusion, there ain’t no difference.

Ah, but there is a difference!

I’m sure you’ve heard the long repeated and many variations of the economics 101 scenario of “You Have Two Cows”…

REPUBLICAN: You have two cows. Your neighbor has none. So what?

DEMOCRAT: You have two cows. Your neighbor has none. You vote people into office who tax your income from milk sales then take the tax money and buy a cow and give it to your neighbor.

DEMOCRACY, AMERICAN STYLE: You have two cows. The government taxes you to the point you have to sell both to support a man in a foreign country who has only one cow, which was a gift from your government.

CAPITALISM, AMERICAN STYLE: You have two cows. You sell one, buy a bull, and build a herd of cows.

BUREAUCRACY, AMERICAN STYLE: You have two cows. The government takes them both, shoots one, milks the other, pays you for the milk, then pours the milk down the drain.

FEUDALISM: You have two cows. Your lord takes some of the milk.

PURE SOCIALISM: You have two cows. The government takes them and puts them in a barn with everyone else’s cows. You have to take care of all of the cows. The government gives you as much milk as you need.

BUREAUCRATIC SOCIALISM: You have two cows. The government takes them and put them in a barn with everyone else’s cows. They are cared for by ex-chicken farmers. You have to take care of the chickens the government took from the chicken farmers. The government gives you as much milk and eggs as the regulations say you need.

FASCISM: You have two cows. The government takes both, hires you to take care of them and sells you the milk.

PURE COMMUNISM: You have two cows. Your neighbors help you take care of them, and you all share the milk.

RUSSIAN COMMUNISM: You have two cows. You have to take care of them, but the government takes all the milk.

CAMBODIAN COMMUNISM: You have two cows. The government takes both of them and shoots you.

AN AMERICAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You sell one, and force the other to produce the milk of four cows. You are surprised when the cow drops dead.

A FRENCH CORPORATION: You have two cows. You go on strike because you want three cows.

A JAPANESE CORPORATION: You have two cows. You redesign them so they are one-tenth the size of an ordinary cow and produce twenty times the milk.

A GERMAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You reengineer them so they live for 100 years, eat once a month, and milk themselves.

AN ITALIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows but you don’t know where they are. You break for lunch.

A RUSSIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You count them and learn you have five cows. You count them again and learn you have 42 cows. You count them again and learn you have 12 cows. You stop counting cows and open another bottle of vodka.

A MEXICAN CORPORATION: You think you have two cows, but you don’t know what a cow looks like. You take a nap.

A SWISS CORPORATION: You have 5000 cows, none of which belongs to you. You charge for storing them for others.

DICTATORSHIP: You have two cows. The government takes both and drafts you.

PURE DEMOCRACY: You have two cows. Your neighbors decide who gets the milk.

REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY: You have two cows. Your neighbors pick someone to tell you who gets the milk.

PURE ANARCHY: You have two cows. Either you sell the milk at a fair price or your neighbors try to take the cows and kill you.

SURREALISM: You have two giraffes. The government requires you to take harmonica lessons.

OBAMANOMICS: You have two cows, he takes one (because it is fair) he borrows another $1.8 trillion dollars, gives three cows to the UAW, claims he has saved 600,000 cows and gives a great speech.

That is because what is touted as communism is not. In true communism, everything is held in common bu everyone. Basically everthng goes in one pot, and then is divided out to the group according to need. No one is in charge, exactly, since the group has to approve everything. It is a difficult way to live. What we get SOLD as communism, is more socialism–the few with money, title, reputation, determine the many who need assistance, and reroute some money and services to them. The Democratic party is just insane. They have no clue wht they want, except that they want it all. THey want to be the decision makers who get all the goodies and dole out just enough to keep the populace fat dumb and happy.
