We’re All Crazy, but There Are 71 Socialists in Congress

Our update contains good news and bad news. Though three of these Socialist Caucus Members lost their seats to Republicans between 2010 and 2012, the number of members actually grew. We’ve found that they are clearly ashamed of this caucus, as the do not publish anywhere, even though the Socialist Party of America will. It appears that their public name is (you’ll love this) The Congressional Progressive Caucus, numbering 71.

To connect the dots, this is still 35% of Democrats in Congress. When you notice the obvious omissions – Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer to name 2 – you know the public list is not really indicative of policy.

Eerily, they are mostly still around, 2 congressional races later. While we argue, they continue to fill the people’s House with Socialists, and pretend that preserving our Constitution is a far right wing idea. Academically, in every way, this is false. Any student of politics would get the multiple choice wrong, if that were their answer.

Democrats claim that conservatives are radical, even crazy, because we recognize their socialist ideology when we see it, the press supports the premise, and the public has been buying it, but the proof is right here.

*I chose the Wikipedia source, because it’s fairly consistent from congressman to congressman, provides more historical data, as well as information you won’t find on the congressional sites. It also provides a link in the footer to their voting record.

Stay tuned. We’ll be updating this post with more information and links on these socialist scum.
