70

I would like to thank Barbara for making me aware of this list.  I went to the “American Socialist Voter” information (at two sites below) and, sure enough, the 70 members of Congress listed below are members of the Democrat Socialists of America.

Here is the comment at the top of the site:

DISCOVER AND CREATE 21ST CENTURY SOCIALISM FOR BUILDING BRIDGES OF UNITY. WE ARE AN EDUCATIONAL AND INTERACTIVE GROUPING NETWORK GEARED TOWARDS PEACEFUL, PROGRESSIVE, AND RADICAL WORKS BASED SOLELY ON THE U.S. PERSPECTIVE.

I don’t know about you, but when I think of socialism, I think of Mao and Stalin. “Peace” and “unity” don’t enter my mind.

Wondering about our judicial system?

Here’s an interesting question:

Q: How many Democrat Socialist of America members sit on the Judiciary Committee?

A: Eleven: John Conyers [Chairman of the Judiciary Committee], Tammy Baldwin, Jerrold Nadler, Luis Gutierrez, Melvin Watt, Maxine Waters, Hank Johnson, Steve Cohen, Barbara Lee, Robert Wexler, Linda Sanchez [there are 23 Democrats on the Judiciary Committee of which eleven, almost half, are now members of the DSA].

The House Committee on the Judiciary is charged with overseeing the administration of justice within the federal courts, administrative agencies and Federal law enforcement entities.
