Surprise! Nancy Pelosi is really, and officially, a self-confessed Socialist!
Nancy Pelosi is a Socialist. She, like Bernard Sanders, is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America. You can check out the membership list here.
Here is the mission statement of the Democratic Socialists of America, from their homepage:
The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is the largest socialist organization in the United States, and the principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International. DSA's members are building progressive movements for social change while establishing an openly socialist presence in American communities and politics.
At the root of our socialism is a profound commitment to democracy, as means and end. We are activists committed not only to extending political democracy but to demanding democratic empowerment in the economy, in gender relations, and in culture. Democracy is not simply one of our political values but our means of restructuring society. Our vision is of a society in which people have a real voice in the choices and relationships that affect the entirety of our lives. We call this vision democratic socialism a vision of a more free, democratic and humane society.
In this web site you can find out about DSA, its politics, structure and program. DSA's political perspective is called Where We Stand. It says, in part,
We are socialists because we reject an international economic order sustained by private profit, alienated labor, race and gender discrimination, environmental destruction, and brutality and violence in defense of the status quo.
We are socialists because we share a vision of a humane international social order based both on democratic planning and market mechanisms to achieve equitable distribution of resources, meaningful work, a healthy environment, sustainable growth, gender and racial equality, and non-oppressive relationships.
DSA has a youth section, Young Democratic Socialists (YDS). Made up of students from colleges and high schools and young people in the work force, the Youth Section works on economic justice and democracy and prison justice projects. It is a member of the Interantional Union of Socialist Youth, an affiliate of the Socialist International. The Youth Section meets several times during the year. More information is available from YDS staff.

Thanks! Knew about DSA, didn't know Pelosi was with them, too, though it figures. BTW a friend of mine from France who was studying in the US once told me that the Democratic Party's platform here is basically what would be considered socialist there.
Interesting. They used to have all the same Congressional rats listed on their website, then they pulled all the names when the word got out and they started taking some heat. I guess they figure it's safe to come out of the closet with their adherence to the philosophy that has caused more human suffering than anything else to spring from the mind of man.
American DemocRATs are ALL socialists.
Well, they're really Communists. But they just don't like the baggage of the hundreds of millions killed by their 'ism' in the 20th Century that would come along with truth in labeling.
They don't want anybody to know that they are part of a failed movement and ideology that robbed much of the planet's population of life and liberty for the last 7 or 8 generations.
They also don't want anyone to know that they are part of the ideology that taught Islamo-fascism everything it knows about spreading death and destruction...
In one sense, I love the fact that the RATs have gone so far left that they consider it proper to have Pelosi as the face of their leadership.
Just another head of the huge hydra devouring the world.
No offense intended, but the link to the list of politicians who are members of this Socialist party you refer to, where did you get the list. Just curious.
nothing surprising here
She is a socialist but:
Wants the best doctors for herself
Wants the best house for her family
Wants the best vacations for her family
Wants the best education for her children
She is a socialist for YOU, not for her.

It provides a fascinating view into the ideological cesspool from whence the RATs crawled.
Checked out the members that you had listed and all I can say is "Round up the usual suspects." Just to mention a few other than Pelosi.
Pastor (Me.Ch.A. too)
Don't forget Mad Maxine and Ed Assner!
A rare insight.
Most people are not aware that the new "Arab resurgence" is founded on Socialism. The "Ba'ath party's official name is the Baath Arab Socialist Party and almost all the "pan-Arab" political movements answer to the Socialist International.
Study the ways of Socialism, and you will know the true enemy that openly threatens to destroy America, from without and within.
It's not necessarily Islam, and it's not necessarily Arabs that are threatening America. Seek and ye shall find.
The tentacles of the subversives are diversified, widespread and deep into the fabric of our country.
The young radicals (communists/socialists) of the 60s have become college professors, teachers, lawyers, POLITICIANS, clergy, news media and the business world elite.
WOW...great find! I'm bookmarking this and going to spread the word.
The Democrats have moved so far left they are unrecognizable from the days of John F. Kennedy. He'd be considered a moderate Republican today.
I have it saved on my old computer from mid 2000. It seems they want to cover it up. Sometime later, they must have removed the link. Keep spreading this. The word needs to get out.
