It is now long past the time that the well-known national Democrats, including those in the Congress, put the kibosh on the dishonest political strategy used by many conservative-Republicans of calling Democrats names such as “socialists”, “Marxists”, and “communists.”
In reality, not a single Democrat is a true socialist. This can be done by honestly educating and informing the public on what a true socialist does and does not believe in. This red-baiting by Republicans reminds me so much of what Joe McCarthy and McCarthyism did in the 1950s.
In actuality, there is much more truth to the claim that many of today’s Republicans in Congress are Scrooge-like “Survival-of-the-Fittest” Social Darwinists.
