Communism is nothing but an economic system - that fact is not my fault - it's just a fact.

War Profiteers for years have made Trillions of Dollars scaring Americans over the communist boogeyman.

People confound communism with dictatorships and totalitarian governments which can exist in any economic system, including communism, capitalism, and socialism.

By way of example, Saudi Arabia and Syria are dictatorship and certainly not communist. Africa is famous for dictatorships and totalitarian governments that are not communist.

No economic system, capitalism or communism. can be maintained or enforced without the political structure/government to enforce it.

In America, where we have a "Mixed Economy" that combines aspects of capitalism and socialism,
the political structure/government enforces aspects of capitalism, such as allowing unlimited acquisition of private property,(which will be protected by public funds and entities),
and providing the public infrastructure that allows and facilitates the creation of private wealth;
and
enforces socialism, such as Social Security, Medicare, Public Education, Public Law Enforcement and Fire Protection, Public Hospitals, Airports, Ports, Safe Drinking Water, and prevents the sale of baby blankets that erupt into flames when a mother walks within 5 feet of a fireplace.

It's socialism when the government tells private industry it can't build a hospital where none is needed. It's also smart, because we would pay for doctors and equipment that would suddenly require "use" to make a profit for the investors; or utility monopolies that have to provide power to rural regions; or require compliance with zoning laws, building codes, and aircraft safety rules.

It's capitalism when we allow thousands of foreclosed homes to remain vacant and deteriorating, while homeless people wander the streets and families live in cars.

Both are enforced by the political structure/government.

What is so amazing is how scared the powerful elite can make the working man over "socialism",
when "socialism" is placing the public good ahead of personal gain, and so, by necessity, has always been part of our economic system, and by necessity always will be;
while,
It's capitalism, which necessarily places personal gain over public good, and though necessary to make an economic system practicable, must be controlled to protect democracy.

All these complaints about socialism are really sponsored and encouraged by the richest of the rich,
who know that any rational analysis says that America cannot survive as a democracy, when all power and wealth is concentrated in 1% of the population,
and so they create a "boogeyman"
to prevent the 99% from joining together to stop being screwed.

There is a class war taking place - and the 99% ain't winning.

Communists do not have to register with the government.
There is nothing inherently illegal or immoral about being a capitalist, socialist, or communist.
All are simply economic systems, except that unregulated capitalism always leads to totalitarian states because money and power must be redistributed to a an elite few,
and
communism cannot work because people are egocentric creatures that naturally seek the highest personal gain for the least personal investment.
Communism is an economic system, so requiring communists to register would be similar to requiring Laissez Faire Capitalist to register because both support extremist economic systems, but the Laissez Faire Capitalist is a far more deadly enemy of democracy.
How odd. Could you be wrong again? Every site that I looked at on the web says that The Communist Party and all affiliates must register with the U.S. Government. It must give a list of all its finances, members and their addresses and every other piece of information that the government might ever want.
If you wish you can look on the web at actual court cases and the judges rulings on this. I didn't post them because of their length and technical writings. They all upheld registration of communist in this country and gave very good reasons why.

Communism is not an economic system. Do you seriously think you can write this and get away with it? People lose their freedoms and everything is owned by the government. No private enterprise. No owning your own land or home.

Yet when I call you queer, you take no offense. So the conclusion I have made is that I am correct. After all, you have taken the stance of backing gays, child molesters, and other forms of sexual deviancy.

That's because I never claimed that being a communist was illegal, that was a strawman of your own creation. If one wants to be naive, one is certainly free to believe that the only problem with communism is that the "right people" haven't been in charge yet. But regardless of their beliefs or their "intentions", no one had the right to give or sell our nation's secrets to an enemy that had this country's destruction as its goal - that is treason that is not granted a pass because of one's "personal beliefs."
I don't recall saying that no spying took place.

I don't recall saying that no treason took place.

What I do recall saying, and supporting with references, was that the number of people ACTUALLY convicted was very small compared to the total membership of the American Communist Party or when compared to the number of people blacklisted. The tactics employed during the Red Scare were unAmerican, a point that you seem unable to admit.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Communist_Contro...
The Communist Control Act (68 Stat. 775, 50 U.S.C. 841-844) is a piece of United States federal legislation, signed into law by Dwight Eisenhower on 24 August 1954, which outlawed the Communist Party of the United States and criminalized membership in, or support for the Party or "Communist-action" organizations and defined evidence to be considered by a jury in determining participation in the activities, planning, actions, objectives, or purposes of such organizations.

Created during the period of the Second Red Scare (1946–1954), the Act was one of many bills drafted with the intention of protecting America from the potential threat posed by the international Communists.[1] During this time, some argued that “the pursuit of subversive aims even by peaceful means should [have been] outlawed.”[2] Thus, many opposed Communism because of its supposed “subversive aim” to undermine democracy. In the words of the prominent sociologist Ernest van den Haap, there was “no place in democracy for those who want[ed] to abolish [it] even with a peaceful vote.”

...The overwhelming support provided by the liberals has attracted much attention from historians such as Mary McAuliffe (The Journal of American History). McAuliffe argues that, despite the liberals’ traditional role as the protectors of fundamental rights and civil liberties, the perceived gravity of the threat of Communism during the Cold War led some liberals to ignore the fact that the CCA suspended the citizenship rights of the Communist Party members. Most liberals did not even offer a token opposition to the Act; on the contrary, they ardently supported it. McAuliffe further acknowledges that the Act “served to avert possible disaster for individual politicians” who feared being labeled as Communists for their left-minded ideas. In the words of Senator Humphrey,“the amendment [was sought] to remove any doubt in the Senate as to where [Democrats and liberals][stood] on the issue of Communism.”[1] An article published in the Michigan Law Review in 1955 suggested that the Communist Control Act was a “dramatic political gesture” rather than a genuine attempt to “kill Communism at its root.”

...In 1973 a federal district court in Arizona decided that the act was unconstitutional and Arizona could not keep the party off the ballot in the 1972 general election (Blawis v. Bolin). In 1961 the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that the act did not bar the party from participating in New York's unemployment insurance system (Communist Party v. Catherwood)

However, the Supreme Court of the United States has not ruled on the act's constitutionality. Despite that, no administration has tried to enforce it. The provisions of the act "outlawing" the party have not been repealed. Nevertheless, the Communist Party of the USA continues to exist in the 21st century.

"Before the Russian Revolution of 1917,“socialism” and “communism” were synonyms. Both referred to economic systems in which the government owns the means of production. The two terms diverged in meaning largely as a result of the political theory and practice of Vladimir Lenin (1870–1924)."

Geez, looks like you're very specific as to exactly what Muslims are, and that your observations include all Muslims.

All muslims believe in a fake religion, of war and politics. All muslims are perverted child rapists.(IMO) All muslims, that practice sharia as law, are twisted pieces of shit. They treat women as property, rape children, and wish to kill Americans, and ALL Christians, and ALL Jews. They have no place in modern day society, and certainly not in God's country. That being the USA. Unfortunately, you true blue muslims all look alike, so.... I suggest the peaceful ones better do what Egypts good people are doing, and openly separating yourselves from radicals. Otherwise, when it does go down, you'll be wiped out toooo.

Here we go again.

Will Right Winger's ever learn that Normal, educated Americans actually respect facts:

Here are the facts:

McCarran Internal Security Act
Internal Security Act

The Internal Security Act of 1950, 64 Stat. 987 (Public Law 81-831),
also known as the Subversive Activities Control Act of 1950 or the McCarran Act, is a United States federal law of the McCarthy era.

It was enacted over President Harry Truman's veto.

In 1965, the Supreme Court, ruling 8–0 in Albertson v. Subversive Activities Control Board, invalidated the act's requirement that members of the Communist Party register.

In 1967, the act's provision prohibiting communists from working for the federal government or at defense facility was also struck down by the Supreme Court as a violation of the First Amendment's right to freedom of association in United States v. Robel.

So, we know for sure that:

- It is not illegal to be a communist;

- It's not required to register as a communist;

- In fact, it's illegal for the federal government to discriminate against someone who is a communist;

and

-Harry Truman had to deal with Right Wing Wackos back when he was President.

If you had read my post 22413 you would see that I just put in a very few words of what took you a page to copy.
If you actually read the appeals and what witness's testified to as the case went before the court there were very good reasons why the Communist must register. Such as the physical overthrow of the U.S. Government.
The government did not stop the communist party from organizing but it had to follow strict government rules. The government did allow the communist party to exist.
So what is your point? The communist still exist in this country and that is something that should not have been allowed. The Communist Party has openly threatened to overthrow this government. It does everything that it can legally do to subvert this country into collapse. It is a grave danger to this country.
