Hey. No one ever said both sides aren't screwed up! The 5% at each end of the political spectrum scare me more than the 90% in the middle.

How's this for a factoid. Only 5% of the chinese are members of the communist party! Look at what that 5% has done.

I think it was much higher earlier on though, wasn't it? IE, they have a majority in the beginning?

Of course "both sides" are the same. They are controlled by the same people.

In the beginning (1921) there were somewhere around 50-70 members (different sources vary), increasing to 40,000 by 1928 and crossing the 1 million mark in the early 1940s.

In 1997, there were around 60 million. Membership exceeded 70 million in 2005, and continues to increase, both in absolute numbers and as a percentage of population.

It's important to understand what being a member of the party actually involves.

Here in the US, we consider ourselves to be "members" of a given political party simply because we check a box on the voter registration form, put a bumper sticker on our Prius / Hummer, and listen to a certain talk radio station.

Becoming a member of the Communist Party of China is somewhat more akin to being a member of the Freemasons or one of the pickier NY labor unions. In addition to upholding the beliefs and values (etc), one is required to pay dues, work actively in a party organization, be "introduced" by two full party members, take an entrance exam, pass a relatively strict physical screening (you can be rejected for being too short or too fat, for instance), submit to a review & approval process, and undergo a probationary period of one year.


Given all this, I find it amazing that membership is as high as it is. It seems that the primary motivation behind party membership, at least for many, is that it is a requirement for employment above a certain level with many, if not most, government agencies. (And remember that "government jobs" covers a lot more ground in a communist state than in a free market economy.)

I sent this out to some people. Utterly disgusting.

I've been wanting to go into engineering school... but I'm worried about where I'd end up after years of work. No job?

This country is pressing itself into destruction, by the will of the majority. Just don't know what I should do.

There will always be work for engineers. That is an excellent choice. Marketing majors, however...

Stay informed, and share information with others. Because you stay informed, you will be aware when bills that are important to you are coming up. Then call or email your representative and congressmen (It's really quite easy) with a brief account of your opinion. Encourage and teach others to do the same.

They really do tally the phone calls and emails to gauge the sentiments of their constituency. They might not always agree, but they do take your will into consideration.

They just played the obama song on the news and the ******* news anchor women were basically saying "whats wrong with that?". At least the guy had the ***** to call it bullshit and said "you need to be dead for 200 years before you can have a song made after you".

It also helps if you have the budget of the federal government paying the NEA to pump out propaganda. Yosi Sergant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

If we exclude the periods during which a campaign is taking place, when was the last time you can recall seeing a president's face plastered onto so many billboards / posters / murals / works of public art / etc?

Seriously.

Ford? Carter? Reagan? Bush? Clinton? Bush?

I honestly can't recall seeing stylized, artsy posters of any of them, anywhere, ever. I think maybe I saw Clinton on a T-shirt once, but I'm pretty sure that was meant as a joke.

But I have been seeing an awful lot of this lately:




Hmmm. As a general rule, where else do we typically see highly stylized depictions of heads of state erected in public spaces?

I'll take your idea of socialism over religious enslavement any day. The Republican's can kiss my *** with their horse-**** religious crap, and their fairy-tale god.
