[quote:Ralph--a house dog:MV8yMDYyOTkyXzM0NzA2MzQ4XzZEMjg4Q0Qw] from the link: 'The law was passed during an era of renewed fears that Communists were infiltrating all walks of American life" So now that we KNOW Communists have infiltrated our society, they're going to repeal this law? Can't have anybody trampling on the rights of those who have vowed to destroy the United States! Nancy Pelosi would probably call it 'unamerican' to discriminate against Communists.
