    Thinking about periods in modern history where divisive issues were burning hot through our American society I stopped for a refresher on McCarthyism.


    Back in the 1950s, during President Eisenhower's administration, an until then obscure Republican Senator named Joseph McCarthy came to the lime light raising concern that the federal government was replete with communist infiltrators bent on overtaking control of the country.


    Upon refreshing my memory of the period I began to see elements of that period that remind me of the concerns being raised about the direction of our country today under the leadership of President Obama.


    I'll draw no conclusions here but offer the link to a Wikipedia article on the subject should anyone be interested in a refresher on what happened then, and an opportunity to evaluate if there are any similarities to the socialism concerns of today.

    Last I heard on the news about 8 months ago, the Russians declassified some KBG documents about that time and about McCarthy.

    Their,KBG, findings were in a nutshell, McCarthy was on the RIGHT track and needed to be feared.

    BUT look what the "Progressives"(democrats) did to him.

    They have infiltrated our Government ever since Wilson was President, and we have ignored the problem! WE call it "Politics"!!

    If your not a student of History, here it is in a nutshell.

    Communist aka, Progressive, Socialist, Marxist, Social Justice, Multiculturalist and Democrat are ONE in the same!

    Just because I'm paraniod doen't mean 'they' aren't really out there ;)

    The main differences between today and the 50's is that we are more accustomed to socialism today and accept it more than is good for us.
