    I wish there was some way we could get Paul nominated. If he ran as an Independent I would love to vote for him. The free world traders will never allow it. Did you ever hear of Huey Long?

    He was the communist from Louisiana that was "mysteriously assassinated" before he could run against FDR, right?

    He was, I'm not sure if he was commie, but the American people loved him. I think he would have been elected. The story I saw about him never mentioned communism.

    Long was no communist; he was a populist. But i am sure that anyone who tried to make a difference in the people's lives was considered a commie.

    I don't buy that he would've been elected. There was no one who could defeat FDR in 1936.

    More specifically, was Huey Long the one who's proposal was called "Share Our Wealth"? I get all those leftist critics mixed up (Coughlin, Townshend, Lewis).

    If "Share Our Wealth" doesn't sound like communism, I'm not sure what does.

    Yup, Huey Long was Mr. Share Our Wealth. Near complete redistribution of wealth from the businesses and the wealthy to everyone. The motto for the program was "Every Man a King."

    And that, qalam, is communism. Minus the little red book.
