    You can't be a member of the Communist Party and get a sensitive government job.

    You can't have a sensitive government job if you join a party that advocates overthrowing the government.

    Do you actually believe that should be allowed?

    It doesn't say anything about driving under the influence in my Constitution either.

    "incriminating evidence" on her "views"? Buddy, you better be careful. When there is a post-Trump reckoning, they might go after the Alt-Right types for their "views" and you've left a lot of incriminating evidence with your pro-Axis postings about WWII.

    Shit, whatever Mormon Shithole you live in might decide to offer you up as sacrificial lamb.

    Show me in the constitution where it says that? Thanks.

    Sorry, man, there is a reason why McCarthyism is considered a pejorative to this very day, and why even Republicans turned on him.

    Joe McCarthy would be proud of what we've become

    The Patriot Act, TSA, Homeland Security, NSA, and the plain fact that our governance lacks clarity and transparency

    We are far less 'free' now, than we've ever been....

    We have the largest most intrusive governance in our history

    Our 4th is a joke

    Given our immense RW love of fascism that's blossomed in recent times, i'd say Senator Joe McCarthy would have a fair shot at the '20

    But it does mention freedom of speech. Macarthyism is against that.
