Where Congressional Bills go to die….

by Skip October 19, 2014

by Skip October 19, 2014

We see his face on T-shirts all the time (especially on college campuses) as examples of “Communist Chic”.  Viva la Revolucion! Problem is, he words quite pithily sum up the Left’s philosophy and THAT we should never forget: “We reject any peaceful approach. Violence is inevitable.
