Why do US citizens continue to support a failing Administration. Is it because they are communists.


With the latest scandal exposed about the Administration, one would think that the citizens would wake up to the destructive game being played by the leaders of the White House and Senate. But, there are still many who have put their heads in the sand. The nation is failing under a tyrannical stance, with many still supporting the destruction. Could it be that the nation is filled with communists?

    "Most people screaming about communism in this country have no earthly idea what they are talking about."

    No truer thing has ever been said.

    Divisive methods, attacks on the Constitution, moving things under government control...it all defines a march to socialism which is only a water-hole on the way to communism. Socialism always fails...eventually.

    The new era of "conservatives" that are more right wing radicals than true conservatives only thrive on promoting fear and paranoia. Notice they never propose actual solutions to problems.

    I am with you! I guess sometimes it is best just remember that a lot of what is written about politics on Hubpages attracts people with like minds... and of course they agree with each other. But their is a whole other side that thinks differently..

    when one does nothing to change the destruction - one becomes the same as the destroyers.

    When people continue to support leadership that utilizes their power to deny advancement to others, attack people with opposing views, and create policy to restrict freedom, they are speeding toward socialism and communism.

    Sorry MizBejabbers - the 40 years you speak of was not a "get well", but a "get destroyed empathy" period. Citizens run the nation - not the politicians in government who steal from those who work to give to those who don't.

    S,exactly. As Dr. Lakoff, linguistics prof at Berkeley examined, words such as "scandal" are purposely perpetrated to be picked up by the media.It's a clever trick that sways people.Even un-biased news pick up the vocab 'n its use becomes ubiquitous

    the difference with this question is that when I asked it of Bush - everyone agreed. Now the majority just attack - idolatry has taken over common sense.

    it is time for the citizens to stand tall and demand change-we heard the promise-but it has never been the current agenda. further destruction is underway- so it is time for positive change. Impeach Now. I made same statement of Bush.

    Good comment. I do think the word communist in all forms used on this question is far from true in America. It is not communism we are developing in this country, it's socialism through programs and policies.

    Globalist policy is the big danger.

    What people on welfare and public assistance to you know that live grand lavish lifestyles? This is another propaganda talking point designed to deflect attention away from the actual crooks on Wall street.

    the question was raised - not to insult, but as a means to determine why people still support a destructive government. too bad so many want to name themselves based on a question. this is why the young folks of America fail at all levels.

    I don't want to be disrespectful either, but I'm with you K. Sometimes we just have to be courageous and fight such illogical thinking by saying what we feel.
