Comrade Carol Seiu-Porter

PWorkers Unite!  CSP / CP/ SP what's the difference?eople Helping Illinois Lead is a PAC that donated to Carol Seiu-Porter.  The PAC is run by Illinois congressman Phil Hare.  Both Rep Hare and Seiu-Porter sit on an education and labor subcommittee.  Phil and Carol are quite similar.  While Carol votes with the fringe left 98% of the time, Hare votes with them 99% of the time—the only significant difference being that Porter missed or abstained in 2% of the votes, where Hare only missed or Abstained from 1%.  Neither of them produces much in the way of original legislation, and neither of them has had their whole bills survive to become law.  Both are classified as “followers,” people who accomplish little but co-sponsor other people bills and use that as proof of relevance.  Side by side they are a guaranteed party-first vote, and  reliable co-sponsor of whatever leadership backs.

So put side by side their are no discernible policy differences.  They are liberal progressive twins.

Of Course Carol Seiu-Porter donor Phil Hare is listed as a member of the Socialist Party in America, and on the record as not caring about the constitution.

“I don’t care about the Constitution…I believe that it says we have a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” -Phil Hare (D-Ill)

As Gateway pundit points out…it says the Declaration of independence.  Don’t forget Hare and Seiu-Porter sit on a labor and EDUCATION subcommittee together.  Warms your heart doesn’t it?

As to the matter of his socialist party membership, Phil’s not talking about that either.  Maybe that’s silly stuff as well.  But it need not be silly for us. He supports Carol-Seiu-Porter.  That might concern some people. 

I mean if it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck (or votes like a socialist and acts like the socialist), and gets financial support from a constitutionally indifferent socialist, is it a socialist (duck)?

A few of you will now point out that one so-called congressional member of the socialist party who just happens to vote like Carol and then donates $1,000.00 to her campaign doesn’t mean anything.  Fair enough.  So how about twelve members of congress listed as members of the American Socialist Party who vote like Carol and have so far donated a total of $32,000.00 dollars to Carol Seiu-Porter?  Would that be a different duck altogether?

And while no candidate can know who every one of their donors are, Carol not only knows them, they are her democrat co-workers and she is politically and ideologically like them.  Exactly like them. She talks like them, and walks like them, and spends and deems and votes like them.  She is them.  And twelve of them, (PAC donors or congressional committee donors to Carol) are listed as members of the American Socialist Party.

So what about that duck? (CSP = Carol Socialist Porter? Communist Seiu-Party? CP, SP, ….you figure it out.)

And dasvidaniya Carol.
