  •  The New Communists (none)
    American Communists in the 30's and 40's believed that their ideology was the truth.  Any statement that advanced the cause was therefore the truth.  The only lie was a statement that subverted the cause.  This was the NEW TRUTH.

    American Communists in the 30's and 40's always followed the dictates of their GREAT LEADER.  When the Great Leader changed directions, i.e. 1934 when he reversed course on whether Western Communists could ally themselves with progressives in their own country, and in August 1939 and June 1941 over Hitler, American Communists dutifully spouted the party line without questioning.

    The radical right today are the New Communists.  Their lies are not lies because their statements further their ultimate goals and therefore are the truth, the NEW TRUTH.  They never question their Great Leader but dutifully recite whatever He dictates.

    The difference is that the American Communists may have represented, at best 1 percent of the American adult population, the radical right today probably equals Bush's 40 percent poll numbers.

    Scalito will be a dutiful New Communist in implementing the Party Agenda.  

    Can't we get a single Democrat to start the filibuster?  If a single Senator can start with a never ending speech, maybe more will join in?
