That's right, the Republican Party is against following the self-serving marxist pied piper b. h. obama and somehow that's the party the public has a dim view of...I guess the washington compost wants everyone to believe America prefers the communist manifesto over The United States Constitution...right.

Everyone knows that Tea Party revolutionaries fear and hate socialism about as much as the Antichrist. Which is funny, because the Tea Party movementís dirty little secret is that it owes its existence to the grandaddy of all Antichrists: the godless empire of the USSR.

What few realize is that the secretive oil billionaires of the Koch family, the main supporters of the right-wing groups that orchestrated the Tea Party movement, would not have the means to bankroll their favorite causes had it not been for the pile of money the family made working for the Bolsheviks in the late 1920s and early 1930s, building refineries, training Communist engineers and laying down the foundation of Soviet oil infrastructure.

Here is a better historical fact, one that the Kochs donít like to repeat in public: the familyís initial wealth was not created by the harsh, creative forces of unfettered capitalism, but by the grace of the centrally-planned economy of the Soviet Union. This deserves repeating: The Koch family, Americaís biggest pushers of the free-market Tea Party revolution, would not be the billionaires they are today were it not for the whim of one of Stalinís comrades.

The Soviet oil planners were delighted with Kochís refineries, which ďoperated commendably, and would in the future be the type preferred by the heads of the Soviet Unionís petroleum industry when purchasing new cracking equipment.Ē The Communists were so impressed they kept giving Winkler-Koch business and regularly sent Soviet engineers to train in Wichita. It was a sign of growing mutual trust.

The Republican "brand" of communism: Teabaggers.
