Communism is for useful idiots ?

Why did people risk their lives to leave communist countries if communism worked. If it did work then people in western countries would had moved to communist countries. Plus I have notice most people who left communist countries hate communism. Also take a look at Eastern Europe theses countries hate communism because of the way the way they were treated

          As in any country under ANY type of authoritarian government, communism included, the rich and powerful do just fine. But, everyone else suffers the consequences of subjugation. The useful idiots are those who are neither rich nor powerful, but, believe the rich and powerful have there best interests at heart ... e.g. Those in the bottom 75% of America who vote Republican on the belief that the rich and powerful have their best interests in mind, even as their social safety net and jobs are being taken from them to the benefit of those at the top, are the useful idiots in the United States today.

          You say, 'But, the U.S. is a democracy and not authoritarian in any way' ... Never mind that, for decades, Republicans have been highly creative at gerrymandering district maps to guarantee Republican wins. Never mind that, for decades, Republicans have gotten highly creative at ways to suppress the Democratic vote in order to guarantee Republican wins. Never mind that we now have a Republican president and a Republican party that believes the president has the constitutional right to do literally anything he wants ... And, never mind that that Republican president has his lackey sitting in the Attorney General's chair to ensure that he can. And, never mind that that Republican president has his lackeys in the Senate, too, to guarantee he cannot be removed from office through impeachment by the House. And, never mind that our Republican president admires the dictators of the world and turns his back on the the democratically elected leaders of what have been our allies. And, never  mind that our Republican president and his party act more and more like the United States is their very own banana republic.

          The useful idiots are the laborers in our society who vote Republican on the belief that the rich and powerful have their best interests at heart ... even though their trickle-down economic policies, in the end, are designed to benefit only those at the top ... Free and fair elections (i.e. democracy) went out the window in the U.S. with the Citizens United ruling that declared corporations, people ... and money, their speech.

          November 3 will be the last chance to reclaim our democratic republic ... Let's hope enough of those Republican useful idiots smarten up before then.
