Dmitry: Well, I see your point about the O acting like a Bolshevik wannabe. I also wince at such connections as Frank Davis and William Ayers. And, I suppose, the O and his minions would be capable of imposing great suffering on our land--if the rest of us let them. But I guess my point is that they haven't unleashed the horrors yet.

I am also conscious of the suffering imposed by the Marxist-Leninist system. I have seen something of Mainland China, Viet Nam, Laos, and Cambodia. I have southern Chinese family connections (among others in my "American mutt" makeup), and have a decent working knowledge of Putonghua (Mandarin) and Hakka Chinese. I read Chinese, too. I admit to being innocent of Russian or other East European languages (save a smattering of Yiddish learned from neighbors), but have read and heard enough from that quarter to find its recension of Marxism-Leninism repulsive. I also doubt that being American will exempt us from horror should that system be imposed here.
