    Are you concerned about communists in our government?

    Is communism dead and irrelevant?

    Our President has surrounded himself with advisors of questionable backgrounds and leanings. We all have a right to be concerned and Congress should look into this situation and get to the bottom of it.

    You gotta be kidding! 

    Comment to HubPages Re: "Your answer is too short. Please make it longer."  There is much to be said for brevity. Your demand to make my answer serves no necessary or useful purpose, in my opinion. "You gotta be kidding!" is all I have to say about the ridiculous Joe McCarthyesque question.

    This question was asked in an honest attempt to get a feel for how people really think about this topic. Resorting to name calling is futile and ridiculous! I thought we were all adults here. None of you know me well enough to know whether or not I live in fear. Just to be clear, McCarthy accused anyone he disliked or saw as a threat. I have accused no one. I am asking if anyone is concerned about individuals who openly admit to being a communist taking a leadership role in our government? That is all!

    Sorry Smireles, but Deeds is correct on this one. The topic itself merits a bit more substance. My goodness, some of us came here with hardy appetites and you offer us finger-food?

    Communism should be the least of your concerns anyway; Fascism in fact, should scare you more. The very notion that Goldman Sachs sold billions in mortgage securities secretly leveraging themselves snugly against their very own customers proves that there is no honor among thieves. If they had to sell their own mothers even, some banksters would do it - And some actually have! I could tell you stories. The collusion between this bank in particular and the White house is all too obvious with likes of Tiny Tim & Henry Paulson before him. This unholy alliance is what's known as FASCISM. So, Obama is not a socialist nor is he a communist. Got it!? (Not that I support him - I don't!)

    Here's something else for you guys to chew on:

    Yes, I am concerned! Let the lefties say what they want.  Good question Smireles, and this lefties did what they are good at.  Personnel attacks and not answer the question. 

    For my first 30 years of life, all I heard was keeping communism and socialism out of the US, but it is on the way of over taking us.  Copenhagen was nothing but a socialistic plot.  and means to try to help bankrupt us.    If you doubt it, look at the main speaker.  Yugo Chavez?   They are out to get us, and we have been infiltrated.

    But answer willl be voted down and my answer will be hidden by these lefties.  Prove me right guys!
