Mr. Stalin’s Neighborhood…in America

According to a new poll by Democracy Corps 55 percent of likely voters think “socialist” is a reasonably accurate way of describing Obama.  That’s an absolutely astounding number considering it was derived from citizens of a nation that was founded on individual liberties, property rights, and limited government.  When the majority of the citizens of this great Republic believe that their chief executive officer is a socialist that should send a pretty clear message that we’re on the wrong track.

Now I know that there is a difference between socialism and communism and I’m not saying that all socialists are communists, but the two philosophies have more in common with each other than they have in common with a free market system and capitalism.  Socialism uses capitalism to a degree; however it still attempts to control the means of production just like communism.  Communism attempts not only to control the economic engine of a nation, but it also rejects capitalism and seeks to control the society as well.  Both of these philosophies fly in the face of the principles and foundation that America was built on.  If our Founding Fathers were alive today they would be soundly reject both.  And yet for some reason both philosophies are alive and well in America.

Let me take you on a journey through Mr. Stalin’s neighborhood in America.  I found the following creepy clip on You Tube.

Well along with their likes for scrapbooking, Jimi Hendrix, hiking, bicycling, You Tube, the LA Lakers and oh yeah singing in their church choir, they also embrace the following 10 tenets of communism.

•Central banking system

•Government controlled education

•Government controlled labor

•Government ownership of transportation and communication vehicles

•Government ownership of agricultural means and factories

•Total abolition of private property

•Property rights confiscation

•Heavy income tax on everyone

•Elimination of rights of inheritance

•Regional planning 

Oh yeah and let’s not forget the estimated 100 million political deaths under communism since the early 1900s.  Ouch, that’s going to leave a mark on their philosophy.

The point behind this post is that communism is alive and well in this country and socialism is the vehicle that they want to use to get us there.  They are actively engaged on social and political activity.  They have infiltrated our colleges, our schools, our political parties, our churches, and the very institutions that have sworn to support and defend our beloved Constitution.  I’ll leave you with the following clip from the Glenn Beck show and remember this was from the 1960s.

They’ve been busy.

Liberty forever, freedom for all!

    Creepy is right. There are many more than most want to admit living among us. And one in particular who resides on Pennsylvania Ave….

    Thanks for the comments Randy. We need to start shining the light on these guys and help the American people see what is lurking in the shadows. I don't even think you can say they're in the shadows any more. These people make me sick.

  • Randy-g July 10, 2010 at 5:18 PM

    Yes, they don't even hide anymore.

  • Gorges Smythe July 10, 2010 at 6:55 PM

    Why do you think they don't teach REAL history in schools anymore?

  • Opus #6 July 10, 2010 at 6:58 PM

    100 million political deaths? It would appear that communism is not too popular in the actual societies that use it.

    Why is it our American communists stay here instead of moving to Cuba?

  • Teresa July 10, 2010 at 7:21 PM

    These people have to teach fake history from the land of make believe so that students and others believe that communism is good and fair. Its so fair that communism kills many indescriminately. I wish that we could ship all the commies to Cuba so they didn't have to try and ruin freedom in America.

  • John Carey July 10, 2010 at 8:38 PM

    Yeah Opus, that is a very revealing number. I wonder why we don't hear more about that. Thanks for the comments.

  • John Carey July 10, 2010 at 8:48 PM

    Exactly GS. If they taught real history in our schools and addressed the evils of communism we would not even be talking about it as a factor in our country. Instead they leave out the truth and now we're dealing with these parasites.

  • John Carey July 10, 2010 at 8:55 PM

    Teresa they cannot teach the truth because the facts show that communism not only has a terrible economic track record, but as we pointed out in the post, the political deaths of so many under the rule of communism. If they teach that, who's going to sign up for a piece of that. Thanks for the comments.

    A historian/retail clerk? Which one is his day job?

    Let us not forget that there has never been a Communist nation. Communism was the end goal, and socialism was the vehicle to that goal.

  • John Carey July 10, 2010 at 9:51 PM

    Thanks for the comments Trestin. Communism is the final stage of a process that starts with the failure of capitalism. They use socialistic methods as the vehicle to get us to communism. This is why I'm so concerned when I hear people demand for more control of our free market system through regulations. Dare I say more socialism.

  • Matt July 10, 2010 at 10:07 PM

    Yes, Socialism and communism are on a continuum. Socialism is just the longest way of getting there. However, there is a "critical mass" sort of point when government becomes too powerful, in that it simply will refuse to relinquish any power. If nothing changes, we will go from where we are now, with a growing government, to Stalinism. And there it stops, it will be as it is said in 1984; "a boot in a human face forever."

    Trestin is correct, there never has been a truly communist country. There never will be either.

    It seems to me John that there is a ebb and a flow in the ongoing struggle between capitalism and communism. At one point I thought the struggle to be over and we had won when the wall came down in Berlin and the iron curtain was lifted in Europe and when most socialist countries in Latin America turned away from that ideology. But the tide turned again and now is running in favor of some form of socialism and to a lesser degree communism. Not too long ago I had a chance to have a lengthy discussion with my doctor who is from Taiwan and was asking him how things were there. I recall it had a booming economy. He informed me that most industries there were moving to the mainland, the reason being the Communist Chinese are giving them tax-exempt status and a free reign—that is free from restrictive government rules and regulation they faced on the Island. Amazing isn't it! They have turned to capitalistic economy and we are moving in the other direction, little wonder we owe them so much money!

    Thanks for the comments Matt. I agree that we will reach a point of critical mass if we continue on our current path and this does concern me a great deal. I'm not sure where it will end in America. It could get ugly.

  • John Carey July 11, 2010 at 12:14 AM

    You know Ron I have actually given this flow you speak of a great deal of thought. It is like a tug of war for the hearts and minds of the people and it really started in the late 1800s after Marx and the rise of the Marxist philosophy.

    You see people that embrace the concept of Marxism used the normal cycles of the free market (still relatively young) to create an uneasy feeling about these cycles. When we slipped into a dip, the Marxists attacked capitalism and highlighted the exploitation of the worker and the economic pains caused by the greed of corporate America. Free market economic cycles were viewed as anomalies instead of normal occurrences of a capitalistic system.

    This huge con game by Marxists on the people shifted the hearts and minds towards more and more regulation until we reached a point where the free market was regulated so heavily that the free market couldn't correct itself when a cycle dipped again. This is where we are today. We have over regulated financial industry, manufacturing industry, service industry and so on so much we can’t break free from this economic death spiral. Bailouts and too big to fail are now the banners being carried into the economic chaos created by over regulation. This is the time socialist can used to sway the hearts and minds again to shift the balance their way. So as you can see you are correct when you say it has been a pendulum swinging back and forth. But the main cause for the swinging back and forth is over regulation.

    These same regulations are being crafted by Marxist organizations that know full well they are painting the free market into a corner. This is the desired state. Why? So they can rig the game and con the people once again. I know I keep rambling on and I could keep going, but it would take a book. Anyway thank you for your comments.

    "Let us not forget that there has never been a Communist nation."

    A lot of folks don't stop and think that like various failed religious experiments in this country, communism is, in essence, a utopian dream, and utopian dreams never hold up against reality.

  • John Carey July 11, 2010 at 9:06 PM

    Thanks for the comments GS. The reason there has never be a true communist country is because the ideology is crap.
