In college in 1985, Christine O'Donnell's opponent Chris Coons wrote a piece for his college newspaper explaining how he had become a "bearded Marxist." Should his college writing be held against him today?
Today there is an awfully thin line between the Democratic party and Marxism, and I think some Democratic officeholders are well across the line. We have a president who was an avowed college Communist and where has that gotten us?
No, the college Marxist has plenty of explaining to do. If he is no longer a Marxist, is he still on the fringe left (as are so many of the Democratic colleagues)?
I think we can consider him still Marxist leaning unless he presets a pretty strong case otherwise. I think the American people are fed up with Marxism in their elected officials. I hope the people of Delaware are too.
I have zero tolerance for Marxists in government. Their understanding of actual real-world economics is nil. They think they can legislate the laws of economics and regularly make worse the problems they attempt to solve.
