It of course was going to happen, they certainly are a large part of the “progressive” Party mantle that Obama, Biden, Pelosi and Reid carry into elections. I had been asleep for so long that I could never have imagined how these Communists have infiltrated our local, state and federal government. It is shocking still, after years of reality media on the internet to see these people out in the open as if it is natural to be a Communist in America. We fought them at every turn around the globe and yet, they took the easiest route of all, getting elected to political office and taking over the National Education Association and set about “changing” this Country from one of FREEDOM to one of centralized government The Communist Party Of America Is Larger Then You Realize
Some even go a step further and say a Democratic victory creates popular illusions, which in turn weaken the peopleâ€™s struggles. And the only way out of this vise is to form a third party now.
Communists donâ€™t agree with either one of these views. In our view, the differences between the two parties of capitalism are of consequence to class and democratic struggles.
Neither party is anti-capitalist, but they arenâ€™t identical either. Differences exist at the levels of policy and social composition. And despite the many frustrations of the past two years, the election of Barack Obama was historic and gave space to struggle for a peopleâ€™s agenda.
If, on the other hand, the Republicans had been victorious in 2008 the character of class and democratic struggles would have unfolded very differently. Our movement would have been on the defensive from Day One, the Democrats would be running for cover, and the Republicans would have an unfettered hand in their efforts to liquidate the welfare state, roll back the rights revolution of the 1930s and 1960s, and crush the peopleâ€™s movement â€“ labor in the first place.
As for the wisdom of a third party, we have always advocated the formation of an independent peopleâ€™s party at the core of which are the working class and labor, racially and nationally oppressed people, women, youth, immigrants, seniors, gay and straight, etc. It is essential for any deep-going social change. But its realization depends on more than our desire, more than our political-ideological attitude. Millions who have to be at the core of this party still operate under the umbrella of the Democratic Party, albeit increasingly in an independent fashion.
Moreover, to separate ourselves at this moment from these forces would be contrary to our strategic policy of building maximum unity against right-wing extremism now and in next yearâ€™s elections.
Two World Wars to fight back Communism/Fascism/Marxism/Socialism and these people are stronger then ever, in the government of the United States of America. It is our duty to force them back into the gutters and shadows where they truly belong, because they certainly do not belong here in this the greatest Country ever for the cause of FREEDOM!
