There's a good point in there about Congress serving the interest of money over their constituents.But it gets lost after hearing the word communist come tumbling out so much. There's s a problem with our representatives and we've let it happen. You say Stand up and do your jobs, or you're fired. I think the only way to affect change is to vote the whole lot out, regardless of party. The percentage of Americans who actually cast a ballot seems to get lower every year, in no small part, due to feeling disenfranchised in the electoral process. I can't think of a single representative who is serving the interests of the people who voted them in, and it shames me to think that without citizen participation,money rules the day.If the people of this great nation weren't so polarized worrying about whose right and left, knowing we're all in this together, we would stand a fighting chance. But this communist talk, is neither right, nor effective.

Another mindless rant from someone who doesn't even know the definitions of the words he uses.

Mrrose, Communist thought is like a disease that has infected our government, or representatives, and our people. The idea that one's outcome in life can be guaranteed to any degree is of communist origin.

Mr. Yost you make a great point but I have to say it goes a bit deeper. All these fools, in spite of their rhetoric Appear to be working together to crush the middle class. To fight this we can't allow the parties to create the slate of candidates from a list of wealthy, connected people who are committed to private interests. We could vote out every single elected official and they would all be replaced with party clones. Our job is bigger than voting. We need to restructure our respective parties in a way that insures the voice of the people will be heard.

wHAT IS HAPPENING HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH COMMUNISM BUT EVERYTHING TO DO WITH CORPORATE AMERICA HAVING OUR REPRESENTATIVES IN THEIR POCKET. COMMUNISM CANT DEFEAT OLIGARCHY. WHAT WE ARE WITNESSING IS GLOBALIZATION WHICH IS A MOVE TOWARD SERFDOM.
