The members of the US Communist party can call themselves communists. Are you a member yet?

From the Communist Party USA website:

Is the Communist Party legal?
Yes. The right to belong to the Communist Party is protected by the U.S. Constitution's guarantee of freedom of speech and freedom of expression.

But vigilance to protect these fundamental democratic rights of the American people has been needed throughout our nation's history as corporate interests have repeatedly attempted to outlaw the Communist Party (along with other progressive groups such as trade unions, civil rights groups, etc.)

From the Palmer raids of the 1920s through the McCarthy witchhunts of the 40s and 50s, to today's rabid radio talk show hosts, right wing politicians and corporate interests have never stopped trying to intimidate workers by making it seem that being a communist or favoring socialism and workers rights is illegal. Nevertheless, in recent years many states, counties, unions and other organizations continue to replace outdated anti-Communist clauses with more democratic and inclusive policies.

If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

The Communist Control Act (68 Stat. 775, 50 U.S.C. 841-844) is a piece of United States federal legislation, signed
into law by President Dwight Eisenhower on 24 August 1954, which outlawed the Communist Party of the United
States and criminalized membership in, or support for the Party or "Communist-action" organizations and defined
evidence to be considered by a jury in determining participation in the activities, planning, actions, objectives, or
purposes of such organizations.
--------
However, the Supreme Court of the United States has not ruled on the act's constitutionality. Despite that, no
administration has tried to enforce it. The provisions of the act "outlawing" the party have not been repealed.
Nevertheless, the Communist Party of the USA continues to exist in the 21st century.

Just because you say it does not make Communist Party or being communist illegal. Just read what the Communist Party in USA has to say about the matter and be silent.

Was it the 5 dollars per month fee too much? They have discounted price for people with low income, that's 2 dollars.

Oh.. you mean that freedom of speech thing.

In the U.S. we are free to speech our minds as long  ...

“Goebbels was in favor of free speech for views he liked. So was Stalin. If you’re really in favor of free speech, then you’re in favor of freedom of speech for the views you despise. Otherwise, you’re not in favor of free speech.”
- Noam Chomsky
