I'm not accusing him of anything, but don't you think the American people would like to know if a sitting US Senator was anonymously accepting campaign funds from a foreign government via superPACS?  Again, I'm not accusing Senator Cruz of anything, but the fact that he hasn't proven that this hasn't happened is telling.

this is one of the things I will never really be able to understand.What is so bad about someone self identifying as Communist? (or conservative, liberal, socialist, etc.)at the very base of it, communism is an idea. A political point of view. People have ideas I disagree with all the time, yet I dont find them dangerous because of their ideas. They think one way, i think another, and that's that. Attacking people for being communist, and trying to strike up a scare about it, is hilariously ironic when you use "Democracy" to do what you accuse them of and attack. Now, lets not confuse ideas with ACTION. If someone has communist ideas, lets say, and tries to blow up congress, well that's dangerous, but that's not what were talking about.

Why won't the senator come out against the dangers of taking money from Russia? Doesn't he know the dangers of comradeship with the former Soviet Union? Why won't he dismiss help that he could have gotten from the former Soviet government?

Notabunny Fark that farking farker.

Harvard Guy "We are puzzled by the Senator's assertions, as we are unaware of any basis for them," Robb London, a spokesman for Harvard Law School, told me. London noted that Cruz had contributed "warm reminiscences" of the school by video for a reunion of Latino alumni. "We applaud the fact that he has pursued public service, as so many of our graduates have done. We are also proud of our longstanding tradition of freedom of speech and the robust range of views and debates on our campus."

I have in my possession a video that shows Senator Ted Cruz raping and murdering a girl in 1990. Why won't Senator Ted Cruz prove that he didn't rape and murder a girl in 1990? Does he really approve of raping and murdering girls in 1990?

"I would approve of this action, if first Mr. Cruz would confirm that he, himself, is not a commie in secret!  Throwing us off his trail!  We're onto you,  Mr. Cruz-chev."

For farks sake, we're really going to do this again?  Relive one of the worst, unAmerican things ever to happen in our country since slavery was abolished?

I concur.   Seriously, these are my thoughts as well.  Who gives a flying f*ck? Even if it's true that Harvard is filled with communist professors - So?   HOw many Justices on the Supreme court are Harvard law grads?   What a threat those communists are to USA....   get a more modern chicken to f*ck.

This isn't a laughing matter. Communist Obama is going to destroy this country. We're in the midst of greatest crisis this nation has ever seen. We're going to find ourselves in the midst of chaos, confusion and civil war.

I've often wondered why being a Nazi is understandably a bad thing in the modern era while being a Communist is somehow enlightened or trendy.

Both are repugnant, evil, murdering ideologies responsible for death and misery around the world. The only difference between them is that at least the Nazi no longer control a government. The same cannot be said of communism, and people continue to suffer as a result.

Yes, I am saying it, being a communist or a member of a communist party makes you just as much of a repugnant, evil, reprehensible little farker as anyone who signs up for the modern Nazi party.

You may commence with the "But... but... Nazism actually advocates evil things where um... communism doesn't! Just ignore the 100 million people murdered under communism and counting, it just hasn't been done "right" yet"

How many people need to be murdered by this sick idea before you say to yourself "You know what? This sounds good on paper but always produces horrific genocidal results."
 
2013-02-23 07:34:20 AM
The worst thing about Ted Cruz is that he does not actually seem to be lacking in intelligence or education. Instead, he has fashioned himself into the character of an overzealous demagogue, a guy who brazenly lies and dumbs it down for the mouth-breathers who elected him.

I seriously doubt he believes half the shiat that comes out of his own mouth, but the teatards are eating it up. Hopefully he'll get caught with a hooker or in a mens room stall, before he has a chance to start doing any McCarthy-stye inquisitions.

I'm a Communist. I think we should abolish private property. I think we should tax everyone 100% of their income. I think every industry should be completely controlled by the government. I think we should force beautiful people to have plastic surgery to make them less attractive, and we should force ugly people to have surgery to be more attractive.

Fark has, what, half a million user accounts? Perhaps 10% of which are actually in active use?

The US has a population of 300 million. Wait, Fark is a web site, so it theoretically draws its userbase from a global pool, so 50,000 of 6 billion are on here.

And the Communist Party of the USA has around 2000-3000 members.

So how many people on Fark are actually communists? The odds are good that it's "zero."

No one has defended communism.  No one.  The problem is people like you who equate "government providing critical infrastructure like roads, emergency services, healthcare, and defense" to "complete government control over all economic activity and government ownership of ALL capital."
