Ordinary citizens, with no participation in the discussion, will learn what the Party leaders have designed for the country’s short and long term future.  It’s directives will be the guidelines for government implementation

  • I have never met a Socialist who didn’t want to buy, sell or get something for free from a capitalist.

  • But socialism is such a great system, they HAVE to force us to accept it!

  • Never been a big believer in the left’s need for coercive control. Socialism would be healthier if the people could decide the course of their lives.

  • Amazing photos.
