Romney Super PAC name has long ties to Marxism, socialism

In an article titled "New Obama slogan has long ties to Marxism, socialism," The Washington Times breathlessly revealed to the world that "forward" is a Communist Word.  Distressing as it may be to learn that our President is using Marxist terminology in his re-election campaign, we must also consider the lexicon of his presumptive Republican opponent.  Willard Mitt Romney's super PAC calls itself "Restore Our Future."  A Google search reveals that the word "future" also "has long ties to Marxism, socialism."  On August 8, 1853, the New York Daily Tribute published a letter by Karl Marx himself, titled "The Future Results of British Rule in India."

While the Romney campaign can effectively counter Obama's Communist slogan by adopting "backward" as its own, it will doubtless want to reconsider its troubling invocation of Karl Marx's word "future."  Aside from its unsavory connotations, the phrase "Restore Our Future" is also an oxymoron-- we cannot restore that which has never occurred.  Quite clearly the Romney Super PAC needs to be renamed "Restore Our Past."
