Progressivism = Communism

So sayeth Sam Webb, National Chairman of the Communist Party USA, and one of Obama’s biggest boosters.

Slightly over a year ago, the American people elected a young African American to the presidency and increased the Democratic majority in the Congress.  President Obama’s victory represented a repudiation of right-wing ideology, politics and economics and a setback for neoliberalism in both its conservative and liberal skins.

This victory was a long time in coming.  When it finally happened it did so not only because of the brilliance of the candidate, but also due to the broad shoulders of a people’s coalition.

The swing in the political pendulum ushered in the possibility of a new era.  After 30 years of right-wing dominance, the balance of political power tilted once again in a progressive direction.

Though that tilt wasn’t far enough for a people’s agenda to be easily enacted, political advantage did shift, and that’s no small accomplishment.

Perhaps it is obvious, but if McCain and Palin had been elected, a public option would not be in the center of the conversation — in fact, health care reform wouldn’t even be on the agenda.  The Employee Free Choice Act would be off labor’s wish list.  The stimulus package would be far smaller and unemployment much higher.  There would not be a Puerto Rican woman on the Supreme Court.  Our government would be actively supporting the coup regime in Honduras, and relations with Cuba would be frozen or worse.  Legislation extending hate crimes to include anti-gay violence would still be on the “to do” list.  And not a word would have been mentioned about the abolition of nuclear weapons.

In short, President Obama’s election has made a difference, and the progressive movement has space to dream again.  There are limits and obstacles to be sure, but what should frame our outlook are hope and possibility.

Eighty-three members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) belong to the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA).

Is your congress-critter one of them?    ***UPDATED 2/10/13**

Marxist — socialist — progressive — communist — it’s all the same thing.  Remember what Lenin said about socialism — “The goal of socialism is communism.”

The CPC is committed to helping progressives, both inside and outside of Congress, work together more effectively, in order to bring all of us closer to making good on The Progressive Promise.
