Dear comrades of the CPDA,

We have, in this current American election cycle, a most interesting choice. Mr. Bernie Sanders, self-described Democratic Socialist. He is, naturally, running under the Democratic ticket, but that is only a matter of practicality in the American political system.

In Mr. Sanders, we have an outspoken critic of the American system and it's failings. A man who had been there during Civil Rights, Vietnam, and so many other things. He has proven himself a dedicated man to the Left. And now he is attempting to run for President. That being said, how should we on the Left respond to his bid? Frankly, he's more in line with our politic than any Democrat could hope to be. He's certainly charismatic. He's had years of practical experience in government, which could be seen as a positive or negative depending on who you ask. Frankly, Mr. Sanders seems to be a breath of fresh air in regards to Presidential bids.

That being said, there are some things that are troubling about Mr. Sanders. Over the decades, he has taken a slow retreat from his fierce third-party mentality. The fact that he is campaigning for the Democratic nomination is, in ways, a culmination of this. He has also been a continuous supporter of American imperialism, having voted predominantly in favor of funding the war efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan during the previous decade. He's very pro-Israel. Today, he seems to be more about reforming the Democratic Party rather than outright challenging it as he once did.

There is much to like and dislike about Sanders. Personally, I believe he is a better choice than Mrs. Clinton. Personally, I like the notion that a Democratic Socialist can run and possibly even win the nomination, if current data is to be believed. Personally, I want him to be America's next President, even if he's not a genuine Marxist. With all of that, I remain skeptical of just how far, or how successful, the policies of a Sanders administration could reach. By no means would I expect any great political upheaval should Sanders even get the Democratic nomination. To say it bluntly, I am enthused but reserved. After all, we have seen such possibility before.

So, comrades, I would ask: What are your thoughts on Bernie Sanders? Whether you are in America or following from abroad, if you have an opinion, we'd like to hear it.

In solidarity,

The-Necromancer
CPDA General Secretary.

You were denied membership on the basis of your claims of supporting the death penalty and animal rape on your profile. Rest assured that the CPDA does not discriminate on the basis of mental condition, nor do we discriminate on any other physical basis.

Never forget what Americans did in the middle East to the civilians. During a battle they had dropped white phosforus onto the battle ground. It hit the civilians, they died horrible deaths burning slowly

The only way i see communism working is if everyone has a culture of deliberate poverty where wealth is considered shameful.

I'm a social democrat and think communism is unrealistic myself, but in the distant future when robots do most of our work, it may inevitable. But in the meantime, I consider myself a far leftist but I don't see how communism can work yet. Regardless, I just wanted to say congrats being so open and honest with your views, everyone. Good luck Red Flag Waving

It's hard to take you seriously when you have full faith in robots doing work for us in the future.

Good day, just for some users here would be interested in an PDF archive  I made of Libcom articles about working class history and revolutionary theory. Since my criteria was `I like it` its a bit all over the place but there should be something of interest and value libcom.org/forums/libcommunity…

i believe the real enemy of communism are the people who are spoon fed from their childhood to  fear communism....in simple words, them people who fear communism but doesn't really know what is communism or why should they be afraid of it..

the bitter truth is that the only people who should really fear communism are the ones who are greedy and exploit the hard work of the poor and care nothing about them

Living in America, I know exactly what you are saying. But fortunately, due to some of my nation's politicians and their hate-mongering, many young people have started to ask questions and look at what Socialism and Communism really are. Instead of smearing President Obama (although some do believe such garbage), the Republican ultra-conservatives have done nothing but to make people think, discover, and consider that there are other options to the reality we know.

The irony is most amusing.
