Who are the self-defined Socialists and Communists sitting in America's Congress right now? Why is Socialism not as good as they make it out to be? What is happening in America's government today?
"Congressmen who willfully take actions during wartime that damage morale and undermine the military are saboteurs and should be arrested and exiled or hanged," Abraham Lincoln 1863.
Obama, as a newly seated American President, stated that our servicemen fell in his newly defined category of "domestic terrorists." In two recent budget stand offs Obama -Â using his personal discretion as a president - threatened first to hold pay of our service men and women fighting overseas.
If you've any question about what today's American government is doing, which, like the above example,Â most of us find wholly bizarre - these are the initiatives of Socialism. If you are in doubt, along with this article view the short clip in "The Very First Radical." This is from a DVD expose' by an American Congressman. He documents clearly the agenda unfolding in America. (The full DVD does even better.)
"The goal of Socialism is Communism"
Â Vladimir Lenin, Marxist Communist
Socialism refers to an array of political movements that are a system of ownership of industry. Distribution of wealth is determined by the state or agents of the state or the collective. Currently there is a vast array of ideas referred to as "socialist," from economic justice through taxation and redistribution through hardcore communism's state control of all property and the economy (New World Encyclopedia).
The first question above can be answered, at least in part, by this list of Socialists published in August 2011. Its' source is the "Democratic Socialists Of America," published in October 2009 and known as the most recent.
Socialists and Communists in our government now call themselves Progressives. Find more about these documented members, by state with photos, here.
"... our estimate of the balance of forces and trends in Congress was too general ... progressive Democrats, while undeniably more influential, are not yet dominant. A more fine-grained analysis on our part was necessary." Source: Communist Party USA (CPUSA) web page.
The obvious answer to the second question in this article is the widely accepted fact that Socialism is a necessary stepping stone, from Capitalism, a free market like America's, into Communism, a market where government owns and dictates over it.
The free market is what makes America the greatest nation of liberties that it is, setting America out from among all other nations. America's unique liberties and freedoms are why immigrants risk lives and limbs to come to America from their own homelands.
Socialism and Communism are unhealthy forms of government, because they transition all of its' citizenry's resources into the hands of government rather than leave those resources with the People who create and truly own them. They take the People's freedom.
Socialism and Communism appeal to people who think they have no other rescourse for propelling themselves in life unless they attach to someone else's star. These governments can appeal to those who simply don't want to work as hard or as ingeniously as others do, to realize their own American Dreams. These governments can appeal to entire segments of a population that are rejected as socially acceptable, being promised and wrongly believing they will gain broader social acceptance.
These forms of government naturally appeal to those within the governments, who maintain all of the wealth and power. They often appeal to the destitute and desperate who are anxious for solutions to dire personal dilemmas. In some cases these governments appeal to the sincere of heart, though I've found those very few and far between.
In all cases, any appeal only exists during the transformation period of enticements that are necessary to accomplish a transformation.
"Most on the left aren't Communists, they're just the 'useful idiots' Lenin spoke of being used to promote a Socialist agenda, which is the first and necessary step toward Communism." Source: quoted of Whittaker Chambers, writer, editor and outspoken critic of Communism after renouncing his membership in the CPUSA.
One of the most serious aspects of Socialism and Communism is the historical fact that they lead to so much abusive government control that citizens are brutilized and tortured, many murdered. That becomes the only way those in government can keep their control over the People in order to maintain their own supremacy.
Promises made to a free society in order to entice transformation into Socialism and Communism are never realized by the People. They are no longer a society of workers and earners with each having the opportunity to succeed or fail at their own pace. Under Socialism and Communism everyone is maintained at the same abused level while the few in the echelon of government keep all of the wealth and power for themselves.Â Â
It should most readily be noted that those in America today who promote Socialism and Communism do their work in subliminal dark shadows. They admit to soliciting their membership through the financially deprived and desperate in society. That is not by happenstance.
Socialists and Communists change the names they use. "Progressives" is a good example of this slight of hand.Â This name change represents the obviously undesirable traits of Socialism and Communism, whichÂ must be overcome in order to promote themselves.
Only that which is truly unworthy on its' own merits must be attained through slight of hand, else why bother with it?
"From 1959 until 1989, the [Communist Party USA] received a substantial subsidy from the Soviet Union [that]Â increased gradually to $3,000,000 in 1987 ... Even more controversial than funding is the alleged involvement of CPUSA members in espionage for the Soviet Union." Source: New World Encyclopedia
It was only a week ago that a misguided Liberal on the news defended Obama against claims of being a Socialist, further finding that claim offensive. Very clearly Socialism is Obama's agenda.
That is why Obama's decisions always go toward weakening American. Obama's decisions will routinely do one of two things: They either destroy America's strongest assets or they shift them to government control.
Obama's decisions not only 'never fix' our People's problems, but they continue to make our conditions worse. They are often obscured by slight of hand while others openly slap American Patriots in the face.
Documented Socialist and Communist Progressives are disguruntled with Obama, because in their eyes he is not moving their American agenda fast enough. They see the time as ripe and they know Americans' push-back is strong.
"Though the  election [of Obama] was a major defeat for the right, it retains a significant mass base ... the Republican PartyÂ has a loud and insistent voice ... A comeback â€” a return to power â€” isnâ€™t out of the question." Source: Communist Party USA (CPUSA) web page.
The Communist Party USA's use of the words "comeback" and "return to power," in a context of not being "out of the question," clearly indicates they believe American conservatism could easily be squashed by Obama's reign.
Communists are strongly affiliated with America's unions. The Communist League took an active role in last week's Washington State union protests, where they inflicted violence and destruction of private properties.
Obama has had no reservations about making it clear that unions play a key role in his politics and in his personal election campaigns. Obama routinely favors union activities regardless that they do commit demonstrative acts against U.S. citizens and against industries that are of critical importance to our economy.
We The People must think long and hard about our 2012 election votes. If there was ever an election in recent America History that is critical to the future of America - to our lives and to those of our children and grandchildren - 2012 is that election.
If you ever felt that your one, little vote did not matter, 2012 is the election where your one vote is huge. It most certainly does matter. Your 2012 vote is critical to America's survival.
To get himself elected in 2008, Obama used much slight of hand. Below is a list of just some of the incidents of voter fraud that were reported.
There were serious charges lodged against the Obama administration for Voter Fraud during Obama's 2008 "election." Officials within our Justice Department stated one incident as being the "best documented open and shut case" they'd ever seen in their history of trying cases. By then under control of Obama's Attorney General Eric Holder, Obama's Justice Department refused to prosecute and they offered very little explanation for the decision.
It behooves Americans to be on alert in 2012, if we want anything that's close to a real presidential election. Contact your Voting Headquarters in advance and ask them what protections against voter fraud are being implemented in 2012. Put them on notice we expect and will be watching for fair and honest elections.
This is a list of just a few of Obama's voter fraud incidents, as reported:
Obama campaign signs and literature were illegally strewn throughout the inside of polling places. No other candidate's material was there. Democrat campaign workers left the illegal materials on open display.
The threatening presence of Black Panther thugs stood outside of polling places, yelling intimidations to approaching voters while slapping hefty batons in their hands.
Voters interviewed outside of well-known Democrat precincts openly stated they voted more than once, some seemingly ignorant of the fact that doing so is illegal.
Obama's home organization, ACORN, bought votes of the homeless by busing them to polling places with bus drivers coaching them whose vote to cast. It is likely they were treated with their favorite amenitites, though I don't know that was reported.
ACORN registered the homeless to vote multiple times for each individual, some as many as 10 to 20 times each. Some registrants used the same name, sometimes so blatantly they registered under cartoon characters such as "Mickey Mouse."
There were Absentee Ballot frauds of various natures, such as using addresses that didn't exist; and people who did know better registered and voted in two or more states because they owned property in each state.
Obama refused to ensure that Absentee Ballots were mailed to our military personnel fighting overseas in time for them to cast votes by return mail. Many military, known to be a conservative voting block, were denied the opportunity to vote at all. This was a most dispicable manner of voter theft.
Some states' school children were instructed to practice completing "sample ballots" printed only with Democrat candidate names. Having practiced, students of voting age were transported to polling places to cast real votes.
If you see what could (or does) amount to voter fraud and election theft, question it and report it.
Make your 2012 vote count. Vote and give a friend a ride. Exercise your free Ameirca. Preserve her. Stand beside her. Don't let the Socialists and Communists have our country, our children, our hopes and dreams and hearts and minds.
This is anÂ excellent video.Â
