  • Bolsheviks

        I often refer to the left wing of the “Democratic” Party as its Bolshevik wing and Rick Howell’s Liberal Agenda in last week’s Bedford Bulletin gave a good illustration as to why I do that.

I always urge people to read it and then consider whether they really want to vote for the candidates who these folks like.
