Socialism in Congress: Time for Americans to Waken to the Danger

Did you know that nearly 16% (69 out of 435) of the US House of Representatives belong to the Democratic Socialists of America? One senator, Bernie Saunders of Vermont is also a member. For the entire list see here.

At least one blogger claims the number is actually 82 on the basis that this is the number of members of Congressional Progressive Caucus. See here. This list has two additional senators: Tom Udall of New Mexico and Roland Burris of Illinois.

And did you know that only 12% (37 out of 308) of the sitting MPs in the Canadian House of Commons are members of the socialist New Democratic Party?

Maybe it is time for Americans to wake up to the danger. Hopefully, many of these legislators will lose their seats on Nov. 2. Just in case you needed another reason to vote.
