    I would say the rank and file D's are not really Communists.
    They are just brain washed.

    Maybe not card carrying Commies, but they are cut from the same cloth.

    The old-style dems were alright people, back in the 60's and through the 80's,you could at least talk and reason with them. Now don't waste your time. Totally brain washed by the commies and are pretty much worthless as Americans.

    Only those in positions of power are devout socialists because they would gain a lot should this country tilt that direction.

    The vast majority are in love with a romanticized idea of socialism because they believe they would gain something from the process but all would actually lose...a lot.

    It would start out pretty well, but the problem with socialism is you eventually run out of other people's money to spend. When that happens you start eating your zoo animals to keep from starving.

    That seems to be exactly the case when you go back and compare the past with the present.

    No,they're not. There might be a few that vote Dem, but most are not. I doubt most on this forum could give you a more accurate definition of communist than "to the left of me" without googling it.

    I think this describes most of the “older” Democrats. They think they are supporting Democrats that they grew up with, not the new face of Democrats.

    As usual with politics....people tend to paint with a broad brush. They tend to separate themselves into like minded groups, even moreso with social media, so they end up thinking all conservatives think exactly like them and all liberals think like 'that'. Everything goes into a neat and tidy little box.

    Sure, there are people with communist ideals that attach to the democratic party but that is mainly a by-product of our two party system. There is a wide range of views and they all must attach to one or the other no matter how much of the platform matches their views. The people who make up the democratic party have a wide range of views point just like those who make up the republican party, it ranges from very moderate view to hard line. Hard line always gets the attention, the moderates get lost.

    Right now they are admitting they are socialists. Once they get our guns, they will morph into communists.

    Are Democrats Communists?

    You used to be able to answer a question like that with another question, "Is the Pope a Catholic?"

    These days even that is not a given.

    Communists.
    They openly accept the socialist label now.
    A decade or so, and they will accept the commie.

    If I recall my college days (poly sci major), there is no such pragmatic existence of "communism". "Communism" is an ideal that cannot by any stretch of the imagination be achieved by man due to the nature of man. Socialism is the route to the unachievable concept of "communism".

    Socialism is destructive to everyone; except those in control of your lives who live high on the hog. It consists of 2 classes, the rulers and the ruled. The government is into everything in your life. You were once middle class. You are now the ruled.

    Correct or not, this is my understanding from my education many many years ago.
