My Response: Yes, the Democrats are slowly reinstating this century's version of the Red Army in the form of the culture of death and depravity--the segue into their political domination of a weak nation, one that craves entertainment and that would, i.e., begrudge money to Iraqis because Americans (via social welfare programs) deserve it more.

Except for Zel Miller, no Democrat is wishy-washy about supporting “The Party.” Democrats are soldiers, advocates, fierce defenders of “their guys.” To hell with the nation and the security of its citizens, average rank and file partisans will circle the wagons around their own.
The Democrats, like all other rank and file socialists and communists, will do anything to promote their agenda (remember how millions were killed by Lenin’s Red Army during the Communist uprising that began in 1917 Russia).
Democrats spin themselves as “strong” by boldly vilifying Republicans, and Republicans just sit back like fat-cats assuming they will win by less than a percentage point because that is the difference between the sane and the insane.
